Shore City: Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers
Although you definitely wouldn’t guess it by looking at him (and no, he didn’t pay me to say that), Adrian Turner has worked at Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers since 1994, that’s 17 years. He must have caught the industry bug, as he went from managing the store to owning it in 2005.
Since then Adrian’s turned the store into a real gem (sorry about the pun, I couldn’t resist). With wedding season coming up, I talked his Store Manager Kerryn into wearing 4 diamond rings all at once. These are just a small example of the huge range of engagement and wedding rings, jewellery and watches on display.
When I asked Adrian what makes Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers different, it was hard to pick just one thing. “We do a lot of custom design and manufacture, often spending hours working with our suppliers to pick the perfect diamonds for our customers.” Adrian said, “We also specialise in pearls and natural fancy diamonds sourced from around the world.”
In fact he’s off overseas to the biggest international industry trade fair in the world next month, where he’ll be keeping an eye out for Colombian Emeralds, fine green Tourmaline from Brazil and looking to extend their range of natural fancy diamonds in pinks and yellows, and maybe even blues. Adrian will also be visiting the actual pearl farmers while he’s there.
I can speak from personal experience that Adrian’s customers speak very highly of him and his expert team. Their level of service and expertise really is second to none. Find out for yourself next time you’re at Shore City. Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers is easy to find on level one near the main escalators.
