Our History

1940’s-1950’s

Orfeo Anania discovered his passion

Orfeo Anania was trained as a Master Jeweller in Italy where he learnt about the techniques and tools necessary to make his amazing jewellery pieces. He came to Australia in the mid 1950’s with dreams of opening his own jewellery store in Sydney.

1965

An inspired beginning

Anania Jewellers was founded in 1965 as O & A Anania Pty Ltd.

At this time, Orfeo Anania, an Italian jeweller, was bewitched by the beauty of the Australian opal which was growing in popularity. This gem would be the focal point of Orfeo’s new Sydney showroom which displayed many pieces of beautiful opal jewellery as well as diamonds and more.

Anania grew as a company and began to attract both national and international clients, who were taken by the beautiful handcrafted jewellery. Eventually Orfeo’s son Ken joined the passionate jewellery team and quickly helped to further establish the reputation of Anania Jewellers, as well as the growth of the Opal as the National Gemstone of Australia.
