The family legacy began with my grandfather, Jack Messer, who was one of the top diamond setters in Hatton Gardens in London in the 1930s. My father, Denis Messer, immigrated to South Africa in 1948 and soon established himself in the jewellery business. He was regarded as an expert in coloured stones and a great perfectionist. I studied diamond grading, gemmology and jewellery design under his watchful eye in 1980 and went on to create and run a successful business in South Africa for many years. I immigrated to Sydney, Australia in 2011. My daughter, Claudia Brock and I are continuing the family tradition. We source the latest gold, diamond and coloured stone jewellery pieces from all over the world to bring Fine Jewels directly to our clientele at the best prices.
