Diamonds are synonymous with glamour, style and pizazz just as gemmologist and master jeweler Karl Schwantes is synonymous with creativity, romance, and flair.
His skill at creating magnificent pieces of jewellery was honed as a child playing at the work benches in his parents’ business – Xennox Diamonds. As an earnest eight year old, he helped out at the Brisbane store and by the time we was 12, he was creating and designing pieces of his own.
As an award winning designer, and now an international award winning published author of the book “Rock Her World”, Karl has an uncanny eye for quality and uniqueness. His craft lies in making unique jewellery but also in connecting with the people who walk through his door. He has helped over 6,700 couples find the right piece for them, helping them create their story; stories that define life’s poignant moments from wedding to birth, and everything in between.
Karl loves putting pen to paper and you will often find him with sketch book and pencil immersed in creation. He loves designing pieces that truly capture the WOW factor, just as his Queen Street Mall Diamond Studio does, which has been specially fitted out with a scotch bar, ensuring his clients have a phenomenal and luxurious experience.
