Collection: Australiana

Dedicated to Downunder, the silver and gold charms in this section celebrate The Lucky Country and all that is symbolic of or peculiar to Oz. It is estimated that Australia was first inhabited by humans about 45,000 years ago, but it wasn't until the late 18th Century that the European settlers arrived and began laying the foundations of the Australia that is now one of the most highly developed nations in the world. Australia is rich in natural resources and is also a major exporter of agricultural products and the world's fourth largest exporter of wines. While Canberra is the country's capital, it is often suggested that the real capital is Sydney, since it is the most populous Australian city and the financial hub.
