It is fair to say I have had a blessed life and achieved many things. I am most proud of my wonderful family and the network of close friends we have developed. After that in a sporting sense some of my finest moments have been the many victories we have enjoyed in competitive offshore sailing. Golf, well that’s another matter, let us call it work in progress.

Finally in a business sense our family has built over 70 years a unique organisation. No other premium Australian jeweller can offer the range of diamonds, pearls and the most desirable names in Swiss watchmaking that we stock in the J Farren-Price Salon. This is a testimony to the dedication and vision of my mother, Krysten Farren-Price who laid the groundwork for this at a time when Australia was just beginning to develop a true taste for luxury.
