Designer & Licensed Valuer

Brigitte Zollo

Brigitte Zollo sets the agenda for style at Aurum Jewels Burnside Village. With 35 years of jewellery experience, she both anticipates and creates new styles, having forged a reputation as “Adelaide’s most stylish jeweller”.

Brigitte formally studied gemmology, qualified as a jewellery valuer, and worked with Ann Middleton at high end jewellery boutique, Chez Jewels, at Burnside Village in her formative years. In those eighteen years at Chez Jewels, she saw the very best of gemstones and jewellery, particularly hand-crafted jewellery.

Her career as an independent shop owner commenced as Casa D’Oro, (House of Gold) on Norwood Parade in 2002. Since then, her career has included operating her own successful business in Australia’s most affluent, and demanding market in Mosman. Through Aurum Jewels Mosman, at the Lower North Shore at Sydney Harbour, she has learned to anticipate what women want in jewellery.

She’s back in the Village, where her career began in her very own boutique. To speak to Brigitte, discuss manufacturing or otherwise extending your jewellery portfolio, contact the shop to organise an appointment.

Francesca Zollo

Despite being our youngest team member, Francesca already has 10 years experience in the industry.

Accompanying (mother) Brigitte to any available workshop, Francesca’s passion for jewellery and design, continues to grow, with a focus on what nature provides.

“Human beings can make anything, it’s what nature creates that brings me joy”

Working in the family business since 2010, Francesca spends most of her time in the garden -or working on the many creative projects she excels at, often being inspired by the native flora and fauna in her environment.

“It’s from gardening that my love of stones begins, like a rare flower, with the right minerals and environment (conditions), a beautiful stone will emerge”

An old soul at heart, Francesca effortlessly melds the old with the new, with a knowledge set, well beyond her years.
