Our History…

Our story starts in 1945 at the close of the second world war.

Leopoldo Ammavuta started his jewellery apprenticeship in 1945 for Geraci Company in Palermo, Italy, where he learned his craft from some of Italy’s finest master jewellers.

In 1957 Leopoldo opened his first store in Palermo, simply called L. Ammavuta, specialising in manufacturing high quality and unique pieces of jewellery for his clients. Although a successful business, his desire for adventure saw him relocated to Melbourne in 1965, where Leopoldo open up a factory in Bourke Street.

Throughout the years and until his retirement in 2018, Leopoldo has carved out an excellent reputation of trust, honestly, and producing and selling unique pieces of jewellery.

Who We Are Today….

Leopoldo has retired allowing the next generation to guide Victorian Diamond Traders into a new era.  Ammavuta Family Jewellers.
