Owner, Jeff Gear, is part of a legacy of family jewellers who have been in the business since 1969. His father, Thomas Gear, opened his first jewellery shop in 1969 in the front porch of the family home in Dolphins Barn Dublin before expanding to a business premises in Dublin’s Ilac Centre.
After twenty years of working in the family business and gathering a wealth of experience Jeff decided to open his own store, the timing was not great however as the world experienced the biggest recession in history.
He opened a kiosk store in Parnell street Dublin in June 2008 starting off with a very small collection of jewellery and watches. With long hours, hard work and determination it grew over the years until in 2018 he moved three doors up the same street to a store that is four times the size of the original store, it’s recent redesign has added more space with customers now greeted with a lavish interior design. This store was finalist in the "Store of the Year" 2019
He later left the watch business in order to concentrate on what we love - Diamonds
Adding to the store’s success story is the creative direction of Manager Muireann Walshe who oversaw Gear Jewellers expand into the new premises while simultaneously designing a complete rebrand of our entire brand image including a new logo and our new luxurious packaging.
Speaking about the store’s new look, Jeff said:
With dark wood lacquer throughout, complimented by soft grey suede furnishings, the jewellery on offer comes to life; customers can view each piece of jewellery up close and personal in every showcase. The piece de resistance however is a curved diamanté feature wall at the rear of the shop; even from the street the allure of the glittering wall draws you in and is the perfect backdrop to the expansive diamond ring counter. The store gives the public a far more modern and glamorous shopping experience.
The team has grown over the years from one to six.The dynamic team of sales consultants have various backgrounds including: De Beers Diamond Training, Jewellery Design (B.Des), Product Design (B.Des), Design History (MA). Certificates from the Association of Fine Jewellers and a Diploma from National Association of Jewellers.
