Since 1952, Rutherford has earned a reputation for fine antique, estate and vintage jewellery as well as some of the most beautiful pearls from all over the world.

The success of the Rutherford brand spans over six decades, since founder Mr Bruce Rutherford spent time working with Sotheby’s in London. Inspired by the fine jewellery stores of Bond Street, Bruce then opened his first Melbourne store, showcasing rare jewellerysilver and pearls of an exceptional quality. Their collection represents jewellery from the Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco and Retro periods as well as contemporary pieces.

The Rutherford family and staff of qualified gemmologists, jewellers and diamond technologists can help you find the right piece for your collection or special occasion.

You can browse the online store for wedding jewellery and diamond engagement rings as well as the extensive collection of coloured gemstone pieces featuring rubies, sapphires and emeralds.

As the first pearl specialist in Melbourne you will find the stunning white Australian South Sea Pearls, Black Tahitian Pearls and natural Gold South South Pearls as part of the Jewelmer collection from the Philippines. Along with the Akoya Pearl and Freshwater Pearls you can find something for any budget or occasion.

An outstanding part of their collection is the beautiful pearl jewellery from Kailis. The Rutherford and Kailis families have been working together for many years to bring their unique pieces to the streets of Melbourne.
