Early in the 1990’s a group of Ten diverse Western Australian Jewellers formed a Networking Group to work together in promoting their unique Jewellery. This group comprised Dieckmann- Bros., Spectrum Diamonds, Linney’s Jeweller’s, Thomas Meihofer, Domani Jewellers, W. Verwuster, Pegasus Jeweller’s, D.Specogna, J. Mc Diven & Charles Edward from Charles Edward Jewellers.
With the assistance of the WA Government under Hendy Cowan, Minister for Commerce and Trade, Koro successfully participated in several overseas Trade Missions. The Trade Missions showcased the innovative skills and unique creativity of Western Australian jewellers. Koro achieved its objectives by gaining international recognition for the skills, talent and creativity of its people and the Uniqueness of its product and use of Australia’s precious raw materials. Most of the original Designers and Jeweller’s have since pursued their own careers.
