Welcome to the Fire In Ice website. Our business is personal, my name is Andris and together with my wife Mary we have established this site. We are both Gemmologists and Diamond Technologists. I am a sculptor and carver of gemstones, particularly Australian Opal and Jade.
We have an interest in Antique, Vintage and Australian Jewellery. I have a particular interest in Russian jewellery from St Petersburg especially genuine Faberge. I also love the jewellery of the last century, following it through all of its various styles.
Our family involvement in the Jewellery business goes back a long way. My Grandfather worked for one of the Jewellery firms in St Petersburg. Following the Russian revolution and two World Wars, my parents ended up establishing jewellery stores in Australia. They sold stylish, high quality jewellery and watches. They specialised in engagement rings.
While I went off into another career I have always maintained an interest in beautiful gemstones and jewels (how could one not, especially growing up surrounded by them). So, we have now begun our online site. We will gradually increase our stock offerings, we are not aiming to be a large stockist, the collection is small, high quality and will grow, browse and enjoy. If you have any questions please contact us by email. Cheers.
