“Purity, beauty and value are the inseparable qualities of fine diamonds. As a gem, the diamond is incomparable, as a gift, the diamond occupies a sphere which is distinctly its own, as its world wide preference down the ages amply testifies.”

So said expert jeweller William Mercer Catanach in 1920.

George William Catanach created the Catanach’s brand in Melbourne 140 years ago, with the premise that quality and beauty must go hand in hand when crafting a piece of fine jewellery. His legacy has continued for over five generations, with Amanda and David Catanach the current custodians of this iconic Melbourne jewellery house.

Catanach’s is located in one of Melbourne’s prime antique precinct. High Street Armadale has long been associated with high end retail, a perfect Melbourne location for a jewellery store such as Catanach’s. Boasting the best range of coloured stones in the country and renowned for searching the world for the very best stones for its customers.

Catanach’s also have a wide collection of lustrous Australian and pearls, born in the clean turquoise waters of Broome, Western Australia. Catanach’s have strong links with this out back town, and offer a huge choice of cultured and keshi pearls.

Catanach’s Jewellers are the proud makers of the Caulfield Cup, and have a long association with the Melbourne Racing Club, both as a sponsor and trophy maker. They also support many charity race days, both metropolitan and country.
