FIRST LOOK: Bell & Brunt unveils chic refurbishment

Bell & Brunt—Australia’s only women-owned and operated premium custom jeweller— has unveiled its newly renovated jewellery studio.

Tucked away in the heart of the city’s shopping mecca is the iconic Bell & Brunt—Australia’s only women-owned and operated premium custom jeweller—with over a century of rich history combining tradition with innovation in the world of fine jewellery, renowned for its elegance, artistry, and bespoke diamond rings.

This fifth-generation South Australian institution, which has played a ‘sparkling’ role in the special days of thousands of customers for over a hundred years, has recently undergone a makeover of its own, unveiling its newly renovated jewellery studio, inviting guests to immerse themselves in a realm of luxury and uncompromising quality, not experienced before.

Officially opening on May 27, CEO Cheri Brunt is excited to share the new studio with their customers, welcoming them into a space that captures the essence of Bell & Brunt’s impressive history.

“My vision was to create a studio that reflects the heart and soul of our craftsmanship and the incredible talent behind it,” says Cheri.

“I wanted this new studio to pay homage to the 100-year Bell & Brunt legacy, the heritage of my family, and to be a space where our customers can have a celebratory experience in capturing their stories of love in our world-class pieces.”

The studio’s refurbishment is a testament to Bell & Brunt’s commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction, with one of the studio’s standout features the Diamond Lounge, now adorned with a bespoke champagne wall. This elegant display, crafted with European walnut finish and double-sided glass, showcases a selection of Veuve Cliquot, setting the stage for a first-class experience for every visitor.

Stepping into the Diamond Lounge, guests are greeted by restored jewellers’ benchtops seamlessly integrated into custom-designed service desks. Their European walnut finish and retractable display shelves which showcase antique tooling or hidden gems, not only add a touch of vintage charm but also reflect Bell & Brunt’s dedication to preserving heritage while embracing modernity.

The studio features a meticulously curated historical display, showcasing the brand’s evolution over the decades. From Keith Brunt’s hand-restored workbench to original signage and antique jewellery tools, every corner narrates a story of craftsmanship and passion that has defined Bell & Brunt for generations.

Complementing the luxurious feel is the newly introduced concierge service, which offers personalised assistance to clients, featuring a custom-designed concierge desk and display cabinet crafted with a Jarrah finish, which embodies the brand’s ethos of attentive care and attention to detail.

Beyond the opulent aesthetics, Bell & Brunt’s jewellery workshop sets a new standard in the industry. Equipped with state-of-the-art welding and micro-soldering systems, ergonomic benches tailored to each jeweller’s needs, and eco-friendly hydrogen welders, the workshop is a testament to the brand’s commitment to craftsmanship and sustainability.

Delving into Bell & Brunt’s illustrious history unveils a legacy built on passion and innovation. From humble beginnings in 1920 to becoming a household name in Adelaide, the brand’s journey is intertwined with milestones of creativity and excellence.

Keith Brunt’s pioneering spirit in jewellery manufacturing and Glenda Brunt’s marketing acumen propelled Bell & Brunt to prominence, establishing it as a symbol of South Australian heritage and craftsmanship.

Today, under the leadership of Cheri Brunt, the fifth generation of the family, Bell & Brunt continues to thrive as Australia’s premium custom-made jeweller. With a team of expert Master Jewellers, Designers, Repair Jewellers, and Gemmologists, the brand remains dedicated to crafting bespoke pieces that transcend time, becoming cherished heirlooms for generations to come.
