Since 1992

History  |  Origins  | Manufacturing & Wholesale


In recent decades the doors were opened a little wider to referred private clients, but as word spread, the trickle became an avalanche! While continuing to concentrate on the core values established by their forefathers, the family businesses changed their focus from the trade to direct selling, and in 1992 they joined forces.

Clients of Abrecht Bird Jewellers seek high quality, individually designed, hand made jewellery. They appreciate consulting with highly qualified, experienced and passionate jewellers.

Leon Corn, son-in-law of third generation Noel Abrecht, has been a lecturer in diamond technology, past president of the Gemmological Association of Australia and served on the committee of the Jewellers Association of Australia for decades.

Peter Bird has 25 years’ experience in the industry, is a qualified gemmologist, diamond grader and valuer.

Peter’s business partner, Greg John, began making jewellery as an apprentice 40 years ago. His ability to design, sketch and manufacture superb jewellery is legendary.

This commitment to excellence is backed up by a support team led by Kylie Pels, dedicated to making every client contact a positive experience.
