A superb piece of hand-crafted jewellery is very special. The care, thought, and craftsmanship that goes into an idar piece makes the final creation incredibly personal and beautiful. That is exactly what award-winning Idar Jewellers has been doing for more than 45 years. Located in the heart of Fort Street in Victoria, idar serves as the retail showcase and working studio of award-winning master goldsmith and renowned jeweller Idar Bergseth. Idar’s vision is to create distinctive lines of jewellery that are exceptionally designed and made by hand, using time-honoured techniques and intended for a lifetime of everyday use. That original idea and inspiration lives on in every piece he produces.

Recently, Idar was invited by DeBeers to carry its exclusive Forevermark diamonds, which are hand-selected for their beauty and their rarity. Less than one percent of the world’s diamonds are eligible to become Forevermark.

At Idar, the piece of jewellery you buy today becomes the heirloom of tomorrow — one to be treasured for years to come.
