About Us

Graham Baker started his apprenticeship straight from school at Pitt Street, Sydney in 1977. Over the 40 years that he has been practicing, learned, mastered, and even invented (see the Hinge and Catch, Flattened Rings, and Overlapping Joins) every jewellery technique you can imagine.


As a child Graham developed a passion for gemstones which started with his Dad taking the family panning and fossicking for gold and gem stones up around Hill End near Bathurst. Bathurst was the site of a major gold strike made by our early settlers.

Graham and his Dad cut and polished the stones at Penrith Lapidary Club and thus began his wealth of knowledge in the industry.




In 1997 Graham opened a
jewellery store in Sydney which
he operated for seven years
before making a ‘Sea Change’ and moving to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland where he opened his Diamond Mine Jewellers store in 2004.



The store has become a destination for lovers of quality jewellery on the Sunshine Coast.

Graham and his team are well known for their friendly services as well as the knowledge they willingly pass on to their clients. The store offers ‘On-site Individual Design Service’ – Remakes – Repairs as well as an in-house range of magnificent  jewellery pieces for sale.

“Making People Happy and Exceeding their Expectations” is the Diamond Mine Motto.


Graham’s Story

Graham Baker’s journey as a Master Jeweller began with a spark ignited in his childhood. Family outings panning for gold and fossicking for gemstones near Bathurst with his Dad instilled a love for nature’s beautiful treasures. This passion was further nurtured at the Penrith Lapidary Club, where he learned the art of cutting and polishing stones. It was here that Graham’s creative spirit and appreciation for these natural wonders converged, inspiring him to pursue a career in jewellery.

Straight out of school in 1977, Graham embarked on his apprenticeship in Sydney’s bustling Pitt Street, laying the foundation for his almost 50 years of expertise. This dedication eventually led him to open his own store, Diamond Mine Jewellers, in Liverpool in 1997. However, the allure of the Sunshine Coast proved too strong, and in 2004, Graham made the move and established Diamond Mine Jewellers in its current home, Pelican Waters.
