A Family tradition since 1886, next year marks 120 years of Jewellery Craftsmanship in the Baker Family. This extensive association with the trade is reflected not only in the quality, but the beauty of the pieces you'll find at Leon Baker Jewellers.

The most recent person to take up the family trade is Gemma Baker, Leon's second daughter. Her creative skill and designing influence can be seen in many of the pieces in the showroom. The family tradition is set to continue too with Gemma's nephew Roy already showing a keen interest at only 14! Roy spends his Saturday mornings at his own workbench practicing his jewellery craftsmanship.

A feature of many pieces at Leon Baker Jewellers is the beautiful Abrohlos Pearl. Cultured allowing nature to take its course amongst the pristine Abrohlos Islands located just off the Geraldton Coast, the uniquely "black" Abrohlos Pearls reflect shades of green and blue, aubergine, gold and silver grey, offering an unusual and distinctive alternative to traditional white pearls.

The abundance of raw materials available here in the Mid West, like the Abrohlos Pearl are largely what attracted world renowned Artist Jeweller, Larry Williamson to Leon Baker Jewellers as their Master Jeweller. Larry's passion for local materials is showcased in his amazing 'Turtle' collection. Each piece is a unique blend of Murchison Gold, Abrohlos Pearls and Argyle Diamonds.

Being a board member of Argyle Diamonds, and one of only 25 in the world at that, means Leon Baker Jewellers have direct access when purchasing the world renowned Argyle Diamonds. You know what they say…Diamonds ARE a girl's best friend!
