Shiels - A Family Jewellery Business




Albert has been a Rotarian for around 30 years and founded Shiels/Grahams  in 1978 in a single store in Adelaide Central Market.  He has stepped down as managing director of Shiels and is now Chair.

Shiels were the first discount jewellers in South Australia,  perhaps in Australia and was the first to mix humour in the sale of diamonds and gold.

Albert was president of the retail traders and campaigned and lobbied for all day trade on Saturday and eventually Sunday and is very involved in the arts, has served on many arts boards and was recognized  with an OAM in 2020

Albert is married to Nyra and has two children Tanya and Toby.


At the age of 16 Toby began to work part time at Shiels after and started full time work there after graduating from University in 2002.

In 2012 he founded a coffee pod business “Podpac” with two partners and in 2021 he was a founding partner in” bureau booths”

In 2020 he also co-founded “The Innovation Factory” a co-working space concept .

Today Toby runs the jewellery business across 50 stores throughout Australia.

Toby is married to Lauren and they have a baby due in April.
