Brisbane *real master craftsmen jewellers
Ringleaders began in 1982 with a no compromise attitude towards quality, as jewellery is absolutely amazing and even magical when it’s perfect. Have you ever seen real “collector quality” precious gems or diamond? They are phenomenal!
So, Ringleaders began with a workshop and only highly skilled jewellers and professionals, happily this attitude continues today. Sadly our beloved industry (like so many others) has been decimated by unscrupulous practices, *fake jewellers and disposable jewellery (*see our warnings on buyer beware page).
Local family owner and all Australian made.
Having our own workshop means full quality control and Australian made. We don’t send any repairs or custom made overseas. We believe in and supporting Local and Australian companies and products.

Often clients are surprised and comment on the unique designs as they’ve seen so many of the same styles in other jewellers
The vital importance of understanding Diamond and Gems.
Having a Gemmologist and Lapidarist (gem cutter) is a must for a full understanding of real quality, 2 & 4 years of training respectively (No short courses i.e. Diamond technology 3 days, etc.).
Only an experienced lapidarist knows real cut quality. Cut grading systems vary from gimmicky to limited information, but a fastidious lapidarist knows and can see the real quality and pitfalls of a stones cut. Especially when trained outside the commercial world on personally valuable gems. Only a gemmologist knows all the scientific properties of diamonds and gems, inclusions, treatments (massively increasing), etc.
Knowing the short comings of grading systems (e.g. 4C’s and others) and the serious dangers beyond is vitally important. This can only come from a full over view through 10 years of study in all 3 professions (including a jeweller’s qualification). If you care to look and contemplate there are many serious and problematic, natural and manmade issues. Ringleaders will not sell Diamonds or Gems that are structurally compromised, glass filled or have any other dangerous or unethical treatments / enhancement.
Ringleaders is Queensland’s most awarded jewellers with only recognised jewellery industry awards.
Ringleaders has received many awards, including the World’s highest and most prodigious accolade, The Biannual De Beers – International Supreme Diamond Design Award. While we highly value our awards, the recognition that means most to us are the many personal recommendations and testimonies from our clients.
Ringleaders is proud of this ongoing praise and in order for us to ensure that you too will enjoy the experience that so many already have, we employ the same basic philosophies that we have maintained since 1982.
Ringleaders is appalled by the tricks or misleading practices in the industry.
- Marking up to give false discounts and “famous sales”, etc.
- Negotiating a price and cutting corners to fit that price or increase profit.
- False claims of handmade and replacing with CAD casting.
- Asian factory made sold as Australian made
- Many *fake jewellers don’t have jewellers but call themselves jewellers or even master craftsmen jewellers.
*See our Buyer Beware page for full list for details of unethical practices.
