Toscow, Kailis and Cerrone open in new jewellery precinct in SYD International terminal

Sydney Airport, in conjunction with Nuance Australia, has celebrated the opening of a brand new jewellery precinct within SYD Tax & Duty Free in the T1 International terminal. The new concept features a trio of boutiques from luxury Australian brands Toscow, Kailis and Cerrone.


Australian opal is one of the ‘must have’ keepsakes for visitors to Australia’s shores. As the largest opal jeweller in Australia, Toscow’s new boutique in T1 brings their trademark Australian opal jewellery to international travellers at tax and duty free prices. The new shop is the first to use a new concept furniture design, which not only provides a stylish setting to display the fine jewels, but also a luxury shopping experience for tax and duty free customers.


Now also open in T1 is a new Kailis Australian pearls boutique, offering their lustrous range of elegant pearl jewellery. Kailis’ international reputation rests on the rarity and beauty of Australian South Sea pearls, which it sets in modern, elegant and versatile pieces of jewellery. Over the past four decades, Kailis has grown from a small specialist pearl jewellery store in Broome to become an iconic Australian luxury brand.


Rounding out the trio is Australia’s leading manufacturer in exquisite jewellery, Cerrone. Since Nicola Cerrone started his business in a small terrace house in Leichhardt over 40 years ago, Cerrone Jewellers has become highly regarded as a producer of jewellery made with the finest materials and exceptional attention to detail. The Cerrone store in T1 was designed by Sydney-based architect Robert Parisi, who worked with bronze, copper and timber veneer finishes to give the store a luxurious feel which complements the gorgeous pieces.


The new jewellery concept area is part of Sydney Airport’s commitment to provide a range of fashion and lifestyle retailers, designed to improve choice and value for international travellers.


“We’re thrilled to add these new T1 store concepts to our growing list of airport firsts,” Sydney Airport General Manager Retail, Andrew Gardiner, said.


“With millions of travellers passing through the International terminal each year, we’re committed to innovating and evolving our retail offering to align with the expectations of our customers. By offering these three luxury Australian brands in one location, Sydney Airport offers Australian and international customers an exceptional shopping experience with greater choice of brands and value,” he added.


“Nuance Australia is a pioneer in creating new and interactive retail concepts for our shoppers. The new jewellery boutiques in T1 will entice shoppers with a unique offering that is tailored to the wants and needs of international travellers,” Nuance Australia CEO, Philippe Boyer, said.
