Furneaux Collection: The Story Behind the Stone

Posted by Clayton Rowlings on

Our Furneaux Collection is the epitome of love. Our collection, showcasing the Killiecrankie diamond is sourced, designed and handcrafted with love and care. Each piece reflects the subtle beauty of its birthplace – Killiecrankie Bay in Flinders Island.

The Story Behind the Furneaux Collection

A secluded island. Treacherous waters. Rugged granite massifs. Silky sand. Hidden gemstones. Flinders Island is one of many the wild and untamed islands dotted across Bass Strait, home to the Killiecrankie diamond and the inspiration behind our Furneaux Collection.

For Scott and Freya, founders of Claudia Jewellers, Flinders Island is of particular significance as this is the place where their love story begins 25 years ago. From the beginning, it has been a desire of Freya and Scott to create a collection inspired by the place so dear to their hearts.

The Furneaux Collection brings together Scott and Freya’s shared passion for gems, luxury, quality and uniqueness, handcrafted in Tasmania and flawlessly showcases a Killiecrankie Diamond.

The Killiecrankie diamond is a topaz that washes up on the shores of Killiecrankie Bay and can be found by fossicking through the sand and shells of this pocket in the far North of Flinders Island.

As part of the Furneaux Collection, the Killiecrankie Diamond is nestled in 9K gold, crafted with as much care and character as the sea that delivers it to the coastline of Flinders Island.
