Featured on the cover this month, Paul Shadiac Imports celebrates 41 years in the jewellery industry. Paul originally started the business in 1981 carrying agency stock for South Australian jewellers. Over time, his success developed into a national brand wholesaling in both Australia and New Zealand, carrying merchandise imported from Italy. Today it is a proud, family-run business, with Paul and wife Jane, and sons Nicholas and Samuel.
“At Paul Shadiac Imports, we pride ourselves on sourcing up to date designs from Europe complimenting our core range of quality chains. We are constantly buying new pieces to keep our range interesting and vibrant,” says Jane Shadiac.
Located at the heart of the Adelaide CBD, trust, quality and service are the pillars that have ensured the success of this brand over time. The business attributes its longevity in the industry to the emphasis on personal relationships built with its customer base, the quality and unique designs of its pieces and a commitment to exceptional and unwavering service.
“Our business is always striving to stay up to date with current trends while also servicing our clients with a large core range of 9ct and 18ct earrings and chains,” says Jane. “Our website is comprehensive and wherever possible we strive to send immediately for next day delivery.”
When asked about what trends they anticipate will be popular for the coming season, Jane details their inspiration and an emergence of an old style.
“We observed on our recent trip to Europe that there was a strong return to yellow gold with bold designs reminiscent of the 80s,” she says.
With over 40 years of business behind them, Paul and family are looking to the future. Paul Shadiac Imports remains committed to their classic range and excited by the trends they’re seeing in contemporary styles. European flair will always be at the heart of their business, along with family and the strong connections the brand continues to foster with the Australian and New Zealand jewellery industries.
