"We opened in Melbourne primarily to make our products and services more accessible to jewellers and retailers in Victoria"Darren Sher, Chemgold
Darren Sher, director Chemgold, told Jeweller, “We opened in Melbourne primarily to make our products and services more accessible to jewellers and retailers in Victoria,” adding that “existing – and potential – customers have requested we do this for years”.
“We feel there is an opportunity to offer our quality products as well as our renowned personalised service. The planning has been in the pipeline for many years with the set up taking place over the last few months,” Sher said.
The Melbourne office will also offer several unique services, including the ability to collect Stockgauge, solder, findings, and selected bullion.
“Casting will still be based in Sydney, however customers can collect orders and drop off masters, waxes, or samples in Melbourne,” Sher explained.
The new office opens as Chemgold celebrates its 35th year in the jewellery trade, and is located in the heart of Melbourne’s ‘jewellery district’, Collins Street.
