Ian Sharp - Founder & Director
Since 1976, Ian has been providing his clients with high quality service and craftsmanship that lasts a lifetime.
He began his career with the French award-winning jeweller Jean-Pierre Giliberto in the early 1970s. It was during this apprenticeship that Ian's meticulous approach to crafting and designing was realised.
Continuing to work with Gilberto, Ian's talents were formerly recognised when he was offered control of Giliberto's Melbourne business following a decision that would see Gilberto relocate to Europe. For several years afterwards, Ian continued to build his reputation for fine workmanship, and worked with other leading jewellers such as Paul Bram, Cartier, and many others.In 1976, Ian opened his own jewellery store on Toorak Road, South Yarra, which traded under the name of Bijoux. Immediately, he established a successful business renowned for exceptional quality that to this day, continues to attract new clients who are eager to own one of his individually-designed pieces.After many successful years, Ian has built a strong reputation for quality and trust that his clients value. While the store name has since changed to Ian Sharp, it remains synonymous with truly beautiful jewellery that is to be cherished forever.
