Behind The Brand
What was the spark for beginning Michael Hill?
Since 1979, we’ve created beautiful pieces to mark your life’s moments. And it all began with a true love story of our own.

We offer fine jewelry, engagement rings and wedding bands, beautifully crafted from precious materials and designed to be treasured.

What inspires you creatively?
From our Design Director, Maria Then: “We find a lot of inspiration in how people dress and live. We look at how fashion trends are shifting and aim to offer the perfect blend of modern styles and timelessness that will endure. Our collections are always created with a dedication to quality craftsmanship and detailed design, which are so important when it comes to choosing your engagement ring, wedding or eternity band.”
What advice can you give to couples when shopping for their engagement ring?
From our Design Director, Maria Then: “The most important thing to remember is that this is your true forever-piece. While trends can provide great inspiration, and perhaps the chance to discover something unique that you love, your ring should truly feel like a reflection of you, and a timeless piece that you will love to wear always.
Don’t hesitate to ask your jeweller for personalised design possibilities. Many of our engagement rings can be made for you, if you have your heart set on a particular precious metal setting, diamond carat weight or quality, to make your ring feel completely you.”
What are you drawn to in wedding jewelry right now?
Laboratory-grown diamonds are an exciting space, as they allow jewelers to play with scale and with fancy cuts in a way that is still accessible to our customer.
Fancy cut stones are also in focus for us as brand at the moment, as they offer a modern yet timeless way to tap into a unique look – from the more classic fancy cuts such as oval to unexpected shapes like marquise and asscher cuts.
Finally, statement eternity bands offer a beautiful, modern look. These can be worn as wedding bands, stacked for a bold look, or worn as a unique alternative to an engagement ring.
Why we love it…
Modernity meets timelessness in legacy fine jeweler Michael Hill’s engagement, bridal and lab-grown diamond collections. The Australian brand combines an extensive history of craftsmanship and quality materials with contemporary techniques to craft decadent glittering shapes.
