Celebrate with Sapphire
Feeling blue? If you’re lucky enough to be born in the month of September, there’s nothing to feel blue about, unless of course you have your eye on a new piece featuring your birthstone, the Sapphire!
Sapphires have been popular for centuries; worn by medieval clergy for their heavenly blessings and by royalty to symbolise wisdom, virtue and good fortune. Today they continue to be associated with sincerity and truth and are believed to enhance positivity.
Best known in its glorious blue form, Sapphires are actually available in just about every colour of the rainbow, including pink, orange, yellow, green and blue. One of the most sought after gems in the world is the Padparadscha Sapphire; a beautiful mix of pink and orange and reminiscent of a vivid sunset.
We couldn’t talk about Sapphires without mentioning the most famous Sapphire in the world - the Princess Diana / Duchess of Cambridge engagement ring! Yes, of course we mean that brilliant blue, 12 carat Sapphire, surrounded by 14 dazzling diamonds, every girl wishes she was wearing right now!
Celebrate September and feel like a princess with these great Sapphire pieces at Mazzucchelli’s! Visit us in store to view our entire Sapphire collection.

The Mazzucchelli's Family
At Mazzucchelli’s we like to think of ourselves as one big family, working as a team to bring you the best jewellery experience that we can.
We would like to take you behind the scenes and introduce you to some of our team members, starting with Jo from our Karrinyup, WA store who has recently celebrated nearly 16 years with us.
“I started as a Christmas casual in 2000, when I was 19. Over the years I was promoted to become an Assistant Manager, Store Support Manager and eventually Store Manager. I have had the opportunity to successfully manage some amazing teams and work with wonderful people - some of whom have become life-long friends.
After getting married, I spent five years away from work to raise my two children but returned in 2011 as a Sales Professional. I couldn’t wait to get back and now I LOVE working at Mazzucchelli’s more than ever! There were plenty of changes while I was away, we have new stores and LOTS of great new brands and products, it’s definitely an exciting time at Mazzucchelli’s!
People often tell me I have the best job and I think they’re right!”

Tick Tock! Time to get Dad something great!
With Father’s day just around the corner, now is the time to choose something special for Dad!
Although Father’s Day is widely believed to be a recent addition to our calendars, scholars have traced Father’s Day back nearly FOUR THOUSAND years to ancient Babylon! There they unearthed a Father’s Day message carved into a clay card, from a young boy who wished his father good health and a long life.
The Father’s Day we celebrate today has its origins in the USA, where a doting daughter began a rigorous campaign to celebrate her father and all fathers in 1909. And just one year later….we were celebrating in AUSTRALIA!
If you’re searching for that special gift for Dad, take a look at our current Birthday Catalogue for some great ideas including CK Gents jewellery, rings, cufflinks, chains and a great Tissot watch offer!

All That Glitters
The allure of gold and our desire to own it has been around as long as man himself. The beautiful lustre of gold comes in a variety of colours from yellow to pink and white. Because gold is a precious metal, it is also extremely durable and does not rust or tarnish, making it very wearable.
Gold is said to symbolise success and is associated with prosperity, happiness, success and elegance. Who could resist that! You can wear gold with just about any outfit. The only thing you need to remember is our golden rule - make it your own and wear it with confidence, no matter what your personal style!
Current fashion trends include fine gold chains and layered necklaces as well as more chunky and bold statement rings and bangles.
Are you lucky enough to celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary? (Congratulations from us if you are!) Look no further for memorable gold pieces for both ladies and gents!
Whatever your occasion or celebration hurry into Mazzucchelli’s this week to be part of our very own Gold Event. Click here to view our gold flyer to see just some of the great deals on offer, but hurry it’s only for one week (ends Sunday).
Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend
Marilyn Monroe said it and at Mazzucchelli’s we know it - diamonds are a girl’s best friend and as it turns out, that friendship is older than you might think!
Descriptions of diamonds first appeared in India in the 4th Century BC, by the 13th Century they had found their way to Europe and began to appear in the jewellery and regalia of royalty. Diamonds were so rare and so valuable, Louis IX of France even established a law reserving diamonds just for himself - it seems diamonds could also be a gentleman’s best friend! Diamonds were eventually worn by the kings and queens of Europe and later by the aristocrats and wealthy merchants. In the 18th Century, diamonds were a must have for the world’s wealthiest women, although they only wore them in the evening!
At Mazzucchelli’s we believe in glitz and glamour - all day, every day! This month, we have dazzling diamond pieces to make any day amazing! Look at our amazing offers here.
Bring Back The Sunshine!
It's been a cold winter and we're ready for some sunshine!
At Mazzucchelli's, we've found a way to brighten things up this Winter... Yellow diamonds!
Our natural Yellow diamonds (aka Canary diamonds) develop their illustrious colour as nitrogen atoms arrange themselves while the diamond is forming. The result? It’s simply beautiful.
Yellow diamonds enhance the characteristics of white diamonds (strength, balance, clarity and abundance), symbolising friendship, happiness, joy, hope and renewal; perfect for spring dreaming!
The most famous Yellow diamond is “The Incomparable”, weighing in at an astonishing 407.49 carats! *Sigh* a girl can dream!
Looking for something a little more wearable? Take a look out our amazing Yellow diamond pieces from our Rand Collection.
An Enduring Mazzucchelli’s Love Story
Last week our new Geelong store had a visit from two life-long Mazzucchelli’s customers from WA.
David and Sylvia Churchill were holidaying in the area and noticed the Mazzucchelli's name and wondered whether we were the same Mazzucchelli's where they had purchased Sylvia’s engagement ring over 55 years ago in WA.
Sylvia had tears in her eyes as she realised we were in fact the same company.
David & Sylvia have been married for 55 years and we’re very glad that they dropped in to share their beautiful love story with us.
What colour would you normally associate with love and passion? It’s obvious isn’t it, red. Red is the colour of love. What better way could there be than to show your love with a Ruby.
The Ruby is one of the four precious gemstones and is also the birthstone for July. Rubies are said to represent love, passion, health and wisdom and are also traditionally given to celebrate 40th wedding anniversaries.
The Ruby belongs to the same family as the Sapphire, the Corundum family of gemstones. All other colours of the Corundum family (orange, yellow, green, blue, pink and purple) are called Sapphires.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the movie “The Wizard of Oz”, the House of Harry Winston created a pair of slippers made entirely from Rubies. The pair featured 4,600 pieces of real Rubies weighing 1,350 carats. Unfortunately the only woman lucky enough to wear them was Judy Garland.
Rubies are the 2nd hardest gemstone, only surpassed by the Diamond, so they’re definitely a great choice for every day jewellery wear.
Visit us in-store today to view some of our beautiful Ruby pieces – to start your very own Ruby collection. Click here to find your nearest Mazzucchelli’s store.
