It was 1853 when Mr John Hardy arrived in Australia from Nottinghamshire in England and commenced trading as Hardy Brothers from his rooms in Jamison Street, Sydney. Two years later, he opened a showroom in Hunter Street, which became the home of Hardy Brothers for the next 80 years.
Hardy Brothers was an outstanding success, and it continued to flourish when the company introduced silver plate ware and silver cutlery to Australia. In 1894, a second Hardy Brothers showroom opened at 116 Queen Street, Brisbane, followed in 1918 by the opening of a Melbourne showroom at 298 Collins Street.
For 160 years, Hardy Brothers has been building a reputation for service, quality and design by providing a unique shopping experience for anyone looking for the very best jewellery, timepieces and giftware in Australia. Today, that reputation still stands and Hardy Brothers’ exquisite range of internationally renowned products continues to expand.
