At Claude and Me Jewellery, we have a story that is quite different from the one you are expecting. A second generation family-run business where we all work together and put our energy into the brand of jewellery we create. Based in Brisbane, where our story begins. From the young age of 14, Claude Downing - Founder began his very first business. This was just the start of Claude's love for business.
At 16 years old Claude began full-time work as a watch and jewellery service technician at one of Australia's leading jewellery brands. After a few years behind the bench, a curiosity for sales and connecting with customers grew. This curiosity blossomed into 25+ year career in the industry selling, managing and coaching. Claude, along with his wife and family, set up Claude and Me Jewellery in the early months of 2020.
Claude's history influencing his business plan.
Claude founded Claude and Me Jewellery on the principal that, by investing in meaningful customer relationships, he could give every customer the experience they deserve. A personalised experience befitting their lifestyle and budget. This is how we are different from other jewellers. We want you to feel valued as a person and not just a number on our sales ledger.
He knew that unrivalled customer service and an eye for quality were going to be cornerstones of his business. Claude and Me Jewellery stands out for its unique offering of fine jewellery for every budget. Embracing multiple styles and trends in a modern, recognisable way. The name we use in our business is Claude and Me because it is the name we share together.
