Words: Kristy Barratt

“Our pieces are designed to be worn anytime, anywhere and any place with love,” say George and Katerina Perezous, owners of Diamond Studio Jewellers. With more than 30 years’ experience, second-generation jeweller George also believes “less is more when it comes to jewellery”. Always keen to have their finger on the pulse, the husband-and-wife team has an active online presence for their store as well as an Instagram account where they post daily. A lot of the pieces in store are handmade, too.

“We also import from Italy and have a couple of local suppliers and local designers as well,” says George. “We specialise in custom-made jewellery where we collaborate with our clients and design the piece they desire.”

The store also offers repairs, restorations, redesigns, insurance quotations, restringing of pearls, gift vouchers and even a handy lay-by service. Here’s their expert advice for styling, wearing and caring for your jewels.
