Our Team

  • The Owners

    Owners Gary and Carol Schefe bought Coomber Bros Jewellers in February 2007. Gary grew up in the Roma district on his parents property.  Though relatively new to the industry of jewellery Gary and Carol took to the challenge with relish.  Being part of the Nationwide jewellery group helped immensely in their early years.  Having a qualified gemmologist, marketing and accounting people only a phone call away allowed them to learn very quickly and correctly.

    Since taking over the business in 2007, Gary & Carol have imported diamonds from all over the world.  With trips being made each year either to Antwerp, Hong Kong or America, Gary and Carol have estabished themselves to become known as sellers of fine diamonds.  These trips help them to meet and deal with the best diamond cutters and brokers from around the world.

    In March 2007, Gary and Carol were honoured when Coomber Bros Jewellers was recognised and appointed Antwerp Diamond Brokers.  This allows them the use of a designated office in Antwerp to sort and purchase diamonds direct from the cutters of Belgium.

    "Its not easy or quick to pick the right diamonds for the customer," says Gary.  "I have to take into consideration colour, clarity, cut and size."  "This may mean that one diamond may be a better colour than another but the cut is not as good so doesn't sparkle as nicely as the lower coloured diamond."  By having direct access to the cutters themselves and a far larger range to choose from, ensures I can choose the diamonds at the best prices.

    When buying diamonds direct from overseas Coomber Bros Jewellers finds that diamonds that start at .50ct and up are where the savings can be made.  Anything smaller can be found in Australia for good prices.

    To find out how you can save money and get exceptional diamonds please give Coomber Bros Jewellers a call on 07 46 221145 or email us on

  • Emma Henningsen


    Another of our wonderful new junior members of staff.  Emma started at the store in January 2017 and though a little shy at first she is proving to be a great asset.  Emma is being trained in engraving machine so she is able to assist customters on a Saturday needing engraving done for the weekend.
