Emanuel Barhy grew up watching his father making jewellery and developed a passion for the craft at a young age.

Today he is the owner of Midas Jewellery in Miranda - a business he started more than 20 years ago - and also has stores in Bondi Junction and Westfield Parramatta.

He said Midas Jewellery was one of Sydney's leading jewellers.

"We specialise in custom engagement ring designs as well as wedding bands," Mr Barhy said. "We are also well known for jewellery repairs and remodels and can take old loved pieces and modernise them."

He said new technologies and machinery had changed the jewellery business over the years.

"We have recently started to do CAD designs which involves drawing a 3D realistic image of the jewellery item," Mr Barhy said. "That way before placing the order the client can get a visual of what that particular piece will eventually look like."

He said he chose the St George and Sutherland Shire to begin his business back in 1994 as there weren't many quality jewellers in the area at the time.

"I also loved the shire," he said. "From a young age I would come here and go to the beach and the people were always very lovely and friendly.

"My clients are all special to me because every piece tells a different story.

"In some cases I have had clients who came in as children back in the 1990s who are now grown up and coming back to me to purchase their engagement rings and so on."

Mr Barhy said he owed the success of his business to the fact his loyal customers keep coming back.

"I also base my business on good customer service. No matter how big or small the job is we treat all our clients the same."
