30 Years Of Memories

Cricelli Jewellers celebrated 30 year of memories with a VIP event held in their new Top Ryde City Showroom.

With special guests including the Honorable Victor Dominello & Local MP Mr John Sidoti, the Cricelli family celebrated with clients, family & friends.

From humble beginnings, to a family owned and operated business, creating memories that last a life time.

Nick Cricelli, owner of Cricelli Jewellers, arrived in Australia from Italy in the late 70’s with nothing more than the clothes on his back. He tried all kinds of jobs to gain a better future, they included working at the fruit markets as well as concreting. However he always held an inner love for the jewellery industry.

Nick Cricelli’s passion was in designer craftsmanship and in the late 70’s his jewellery career started with a Spanish friend from a home garage producing quality designed heirlooms. In 1983 Nick Cricelli married the love of his life Francesca and together visioned the opportunity to open their first official showroom in Haberfield in early 1984.

Hand crafting quality jewellery for local and overseas clientele with personal concierge service has proved to be the success for Cricelli Jewellers. As through its client ’s word of mouth, “The strongest advertisement” says Mr Cricelli, you gain trust, respect and a clientele for life.

In 2003, Cricelli Jewellers opened their second showroom in Top Ryde Shopping Centre. The Ryde area greeted the family business with open arms as they operated until the closure of the shopping centre in 2007.  

The passion and love for jewellery has clearly been passed down as in late 2004 eldest son Adriano joined the family business as a first year apprentice then in 2006, youngest son Daniele joined the business. With the same vision and eye for detail as their father and mother, both sons completed four years of TAFE studies with multiple winning award designs.

Bringing modern ideas and designs to a traditional family business both sons design and manufacture in the family showrooms. Adriano specialises in hand drawings and designs with a point of difference, teaming up with brother Daniele who is a 3D CAD computer designer.

“I was told as an apprentice some wise words from a 70 year old master jeweller, they were, never stop learning.” Says Adriano.

Everyday technology is advancing and techniques improving. The Cricelli family are at the forefront of this, communicating regularly with factories both locally and internationally to ensure quality is advanced in Australia.

Now 30 years on from their humble beginnings, the Cricelli name has returned to Ryde with the Cricelli family opening a showroom in Top Ryde City. The store is sleek and stylish and is filled with its “own unique designs” ranging from affordable dress rings to six-carat engagement rings as well as popular brands like Fossil, Skagen, Dora, Seiko, Nomination, Kuerida and Guess.
