“Baby, I’ll do anything for you”.

Lucie Ferguson is a contemporary jeweller creating future heirlooms imbued with femininity and timeless style.

Each piece is designed and sustainably made in Australia.

Be romanced with pieces from our Ceremonial collection, or create the perfect bespoke handmade engagement or wedding ring.

We believe jewellery has the power to hold memory and energy and respect the precious metal, diamonds and gemstones from which the pieces are crafted.  Our materials are sourced from premium local and international sources, resulting in an ethically conscious piece.

Fall under loves spell and let us make your dream heirloom.

Behind The Brand

Where are your gemstones and diamonds sourced from?

We hand source our gemstones and diamonds from our trusted dealers within Australia and overseas. I have worked in the industry for many years and have established close relationships with the best dealers in Australia allowing us access to their top shelf specimens, in addition to this we are also then able to source stock from their cutters worldwide. I travel to Hong Kong to meet with diamond and gemstone dealers in person to source our stones and establish relationships that allow us to source stones direct from the supplier throughout the year. Our favorite example of this is our Sleeping Beauty Turquoise – I purchased this through a dealer from the Arizona Mines, transported it to Italy to our cutters and picked up the final piece in Hong Kong, I am a part of the entire process. Our gemstone origins depend on where the stones are mined; for example, sapphires can come from Australia, Sri Lanka and Africa. Any diamond over 0.50pts (half a carat) is sourced with a G.I.A certificate – this is the Gemmological Institute of America, they are the world governing body of diamond and gemstone grading. Their stones are conflict free and all come with a certificate showing you the color, cut, clarity and all the specifications of the stone. Diamonds come from all over the world so the country of origin depends on the exact stone we are sourcing.

 

Do you offer a custom design service? If so, how long does it take to make a custom piece?

Yes, we offer a bespoke service where we design and hand make your dream engagement and/ or wedding rings. This allows couples or prospective husbands and wives to meet with Lucie for a consultation at the Babyanything Boutique where we discuss your hopes and expectations for the piece. We then finalise the design and quote for you, the sourcing of stones and hand make can take approximately 6-8 weeks.

 

What is your most popular piece?

In the bespoke range, our signature Babyanything delicate four claw setting with a solitaire oval diamond is the most popular piece requested.

 

What advice would you give to a couple looking for their wedding jewellery?

To follow your instinct, you know what you like when you see it.  Trust yourself. If you

don’t have an exact idea of the design of the piece itself then find a jeweller with an aesthetic you like and trust them to make something magical for you. Sometimes being surprised by something can be so beautiful; we rarely get surprised as adults so if you are clear with what you like and what you don’t like and if you trust the jeweller then it can be a really exciting experience.

 

What tips do you have for couples to care for their jewellery?

Respect that pieces can be fragile, but also live your life in them. We suggest taking your wedding jewellery off for any heavy activity such as the gym, gardening or exercise. But your jewellery is supposed to go on the journey of life with you, if you are precious about your pieces never getting scratched then you will need to take extra care. One of my favourite Babyanything grooms came back into the store recently and showed me his platinum wedding band, as he is a builder and wears it onsite everyday, it was so textured with wear that I asked him if he would like a repolish. He replied that the texture and the marks are what he liked the most about his ring, that it had become part of him. That is how we feel about jewellery; we want your journey of life to be imprinted onto your Babyanything pieces, so that when they become heirlooms your family can feel you there with the ring. That being said we love a mirrored finish polish just as much as the next person!
