Jan Logan Jewellery coming to Queensland

Jan Logan Jewellery coming to Queensland

Australian jewellery house Jan Logan has been designing exclusive collections of exquisite jewellery for over twenty years and is excited to announce the opening of their Brisbane boutique, in the heart of the city and on the Gold Coast at the iconic Pacific Fair.

Opening mid-March in Brisbane and May on the Gold Coast, the boutiques will herald the arrival of Jan Logan in Queensland. Conceptualised by of-the-moment, interior architect George Livissianis, the boutiques are a vision of luxury and refinement with contemporary features throughout. The multi-award winning Livissianis is noted for his minimalist approach and unique design perspective.

Logan’s origins trace back to humble beginnings in North Western New South Wales. At the age of 50, Logan learnt her trade working for a jeweller while taking care of her three young sons. During this time, she developed a love for design and began hosting her own jewellery shows across the country, before opening her first Jan Logan store in Sydney’s Double Bay in 1989.

Jan Logan is an international brand renowned for its elegant and timeless pieces. Australian and international celebrities including Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lopez, and Joan Chen, have had pieces created for their personal use. Offering an unparalleled service experience, the Jan Logan Brisbane and Gold Coast boutique teams look forward to welcoming visitors and surpassing their expectations.

WALLACE BISHOP CELEBRATES 95th BIRTHDAY

WALLACE BISHOP CELEBRATES 95th BIRTHDAY

In October 2012, Wallace Bishop is celebrating 95 years of business as a jewellery industry leader, testament to an enduring commitment to tradition, quality, service, and – above all else – family. Founded in 1917 by the original Wallace Bishop, the family-owned and -operated company is now overseen by his third and fourth generations – his namesake grandson, Wallace (Chairman), and great-grandson, Stuart (Chief Executive Officer).

On Wednesday 17 October, COCOM coordinated an in-store birthday celebration event and media call in Queen Street Mall, Brisbane. Hosted by MC Ian Skippen, the event included a cake cutting by CEO Stuart Bishop and Chairman Wallace Bishop and was attended by media, invited guests and the public.

Wallace Bishop’s brand ambassador Olympic swimmer Christian Sprenger wished Wallace Bishop happy birthday, and a lucky lady won her choice of Loyal watch in a lucky door prize.

Throughout its 95 years of operations, Wallace Bishop has survived economic downturns and major global events, including two World Wars, the Great Depression, and, more recently, the Global Financial Crisis. It has grown from its founding store in Queen Street to 56 stores and more than 550 employees throughout Queensland and New South Wales, making it the largest Brisbane born and bred retailer.

“Despite the ups and downs of business, people have always trusted Wallace Bishop for celebrating special moments – engagements and weddings, births and christenings, graduations, birthdays, and more,” Stuart said.

Both Wallace and Stuart are heavily involved in day-to-day operations, and believe it is the business’s local team and expertise that is the key to the ongoing success of Wallace Bishop.

“I’d like to give a big thank you to anyone and everyone who has supported or been involved with Wallace Bishop over the years,” Wallace said. “So, from customers and suppliers to current and past staff – thank you, because we couldn’t have done it without you.”
