Favourite Collection

As the Managing Director and owner of Gerard McCabe Jewellers, Gerard plays a vital role in every jewellery creation and collection.

For Gerard, the awe-inspiring, natural beauty of coloured diamonds is one that’s difficult to match. Therefore, the rarity and spectacular nature of the Echunga Collection is one of his personal favourites.

At Gerard McCabe, we like to create jewellery that tells a story.

A collection like no other, Echunga diamonds are rare and surrounded in mystery. Found in the picturesque Adelaide Hills during the late 1800’s, the true source of these dazzling stones is yet to be uncovered. Inspired by the mystery of these original diamonds, our Echunga Collection features coloured diamonds, each diamond different from the last, bringing with it a unique appeal.


Most Memorable Moment in Store

As the father of our Adelaide jewellery boutiques, Gerard McCabe naturally has a great many memories from within our stores.

Over his 30 years with Gerard McCabe Jewellers, Gerard has been a part of countless love stories - something that he is grateful for every day. But, when faced with the sheer amount of these beautiful moments, it makes for one fantastically unforgettable memory.

In one of the old Gerard McCabe boutiques, Gerard started a tradition of celebration for each and every happy couple that came through the door.

They would enjoy the moment together, topping the moment off with some heavenly champagne. But, for the magical cherry atop the Sunday, he would write their initials the cork, getting the happy couple to fire the cork off with a loud “POP!” over the mezzanine ceiling.

Years later when it came time to renovate the boutique, they removed the mezzanine. And as they did, hundreds and hundreds of initialled corks fell from the sky. They were showered with them, each a small token of a couple’s happily ever after.

During his time, Gerard McCabe has helped many people to find exquisite jewellery that’s a perfect fit for their needs. Be it a gift, a treat for themselves or a beautiful Adelaide engagement ring, Gerard’s stunning pieces have been a part of countless stories of happiness, family and love.

Gerard's advice when purchasing a Diamond Engagement Ring?

Remember to consider the wedding ring and future anniversary ring when choosing a design. You never have to apologise for good quality diamonds.
