Metal Urges Fine Jewellery is a jewellery boutique in Hobart, Tasmania specialising in designing, creating and supplying fine jewellery. The professional team of jewellers and goldsmiths is led by master jeweller Chris Hood, and each piece is meticulously handmade.
Winner of four national design competitions, it is the precise methods and individuality of every piece that set Metal Urges apart. This is not your typical ‘jewellery boutique.’ You may be viewing blue sapphires in Hobart that Chris personally sourced from Madagascar, Sri Lanka or Cambodia; a jeweller just as likely to be wearing a wetsuit hunting gems as he is to be found at Metal Urges.
Specialising in diamonds, coloured gems, engagement and wedding rings of the finest quality, Metal Urges have a beautiful collection of platinum, diamond and 18-carat gold jewellery with white gold and platinum diamond rings a specialty. Only the finest materials and rarest gems are used in Metal Urge’s custom pieces, destined to become future heirlooms.
The team are always willing to discuss commissioned pieces. As a client, you will deal directly with the designers and jewellers that are crafting your piece. This hands on approach is testament to the customer service and care Metal Urges is known for.
The team are proud to represent the largest number of qualified jewellers and designers in Tasmania. With over 15 years’ experience in jewellery manufacture, diamond setting and gemmology, the professional team can also provide valuations. Chris Hood is available for appointments on Melbourne, Sydney and further afield on request.
