The Payet brothers have been working in the jewellery industry for over 20 years, although the move from Melbourne to Margaret River in 2006 has inspired many of their current designs.
Most of our designs can be modified to suit your preferred choice of metals, stones and pearls. We have attempted to ensure that all the details on this web-site are correct, however please contact the gallery to discuss your options & confirm the price.
We have assisted many couples to select engagement and wedding rings and personalised these to specific requirements. Should you have a such a request, an appointment to discuss your options is preferred.
The Payet Story
The Payet family grew up in Beau Vallon – a small village on the island of Mahe in Seychelles. Their childhood was one of poverty, juxtaposed against the beauty of the island paradise.
In the early 1970s they immigrated to Melbourne, residing in inner city Richmond. Here the boys gained a love for AFL – with each member of the family supporting different teams. This rivalry continues today.
In his early 20s Francois ran a small stall on the St Kilda Esplanade, pushing his trolley of jewellery to and from home each Sunday. Various family members assisted Francois with his jewellery wholesaling business, and in the late 1980s, Nicholas joined the team. Francois ventured into retailing, running 4 successful stores in Chadstone, Frankston and Greensborough. At this time the brothers started to design and make the first pieces of Payet jewellery.
In 2006 the brothers & familes moved to Margaret River and eventually satisfied a dream of building and working from a purpose built jewellery gallery – at Boodjidup Road.
