A brief history on Larard Bros.
Larard and Son was first established on Melbourne in 1874 by John Larard and after his death in 1881, the two brothers changed the name of the company to Larard Bros (Brothers).
They became well known as a company that produced high quality jewellery, including the ever popular goldfield brooches. They were also importers of Omega watches and the jewellery is identified with their stamp of a five pointed star.
As one of Australia’s leading jewellers, the company enjoyed great success and finally closed in 1945.
