Melbourne's Hidden Gem Celebrates 20 Years!

Sally Tabart
12th November, 2018

The iconic Melbourne jewellery store e.g.etal celebrates two decades of operation with an exclusive exhibition.

Many retail spaces have come and gone in Melbourne’s CBD, but few have stood the test of time. In the late 90s, jewellery store e.g.etal opened the doors to their first shop, a tiny 20-square-metre retail space on Little Collins Street stocking the works of 14 designers – mostly friends who had also graduated from RMIT. Today, the iconic Melbourne business is celebrating 20 years of operation with a special exhibition!

Over 60 artists have been invited to design an exclusive piece inspired by the Roman number for 20 (‘XX’), for an exhibition taking place in e.g.etal’s current Flinders Lane store.

In their two decades of business e.g.etal have consistently nurtured the careers of emerging designers including Katherine Bowman (who is now represented in New York) and Julia deVille, and continue to prioritise this support as a pillar of core philosophy. ‘I’m proud that when people leave e.g.etal, they leave adorned with a piece of this city – carefully conceived, beautifully crafted, sincerely passed on,’ reflects e.g.etal founder, Emma Goodsir.

With outposts at the NGA, Heide MoMA, ACCA, the Adelphi Hotel and the Westin over the years, e.g.etal has certainly made a lasting impact in the history of Melbourne art and design!
