Ronan left the world of banking and started his life as a jeweller when be began working alongside a friend in his jewellery store. He intended to help his friend for six months but fell in love with the industry.
Once Ronan realised he had such a profound interest, he immersed himself in knowledge and studies of diamonds and gemstones. Ronan studied at GIA (Gemological Institute of America), The National Association of Goldsmiths (London) and also took numerous certified courses on coloured gemstones and the craft of jewellery making. With a backpack of knowledge , Ronan set forth and travelled the world from Hong Kong, New York, Russia, Africa and Europe building up an extensive book of contacts. All in preparation for the new journey he was about to embark. upon.
Some said it was madness but Ronan choose to open his business in 2007 just as the world's financial crisis was beginning to take hold. He believed that a business that could survive a recession would last the test of time, so he overcame his fears, convinced the bank he had a strong business model and founded what is Campbell Jewellers, his first solo venture.
Ronan's first store opened in September 2007, in Citywest. From the day he opened, business was strong but this was down to a lot of hard work and one clear goal- To look after their customers and deliver outstanding quality. There were some tough times. Open less than twelve months, Ronan was hit with a situation that could have easily closed down his business. His store was destroyed in a late night robbery. Ronan says this was without doubt one of the toughest periods in his career but thankfully with the support from his family and friends and a lot of long days and late nights he got the business back up and running quickly. Apart from starting his business they are a few other momentous occasions in Ronan's life.In January 2010 Ronan will never forget proposing to his now wife Grainne, a good Tipperary women, on a Barcelona roof top.
After spending 6 months designing what turned out to be one of the most simplistic but beautiful rings, Ronan was so nervous he ended up down on two knees shaking and muttering the words "will you marry me" . That evening they went out to a restaurant to celebrate the night away. They married in may 2011 in Grainne's Home town of Dunkerrin with the reception in the County Arms in Birr. In September 2013, Campbell Jewellers opened in Donnybrook Village. This store has become the Campbell's flagship store and the home of his diamond and gemstone business. In Donnybrook, couples or brave men on their own, can meet with Ronan by appointment to discuss the endless possibilities when it comes to designing and creating an elegant diamond engagement ring or a bespoke piece of jewellery. Over his 16 years in the diamond business Ronan has made some exquisite diamond rings and jewellery for clients in Ireland but also for clients around the world. Each week he designs/redesigns bespoke diamond rings and jewellery for new and returning clients.
As much as Ronan loves the diamond business, it’s not all work and no play. Outside of work Ronan is a keen sportsman. He has ran marathons, taken part in triathlons and is an avid squash player representing Fitzwilliam LTC. Also when the sun is shining you might find him attempting a round of golf. For Ronan sport his an outlet to help take his mind of the pressure of his business and recharge his batteries.
Little Lucy arrived into Ronan and Grainne’s lives in 2012. As any parent out there knows, the arrival of a little one is life changing in so many ways. She runs the Campbell household. Ronan has already started her on the path to becoming a pro golfer but we will have to wait and see as this path didn't quite work out for Ronan yet!
Ronan’s diamond and gemstone knowledge is sought after due to his refusal to compromise on quality and craftsmanship. He also enjoys spending a lot of time with his customers explaining and educating them on the intrinsics of the diamond industry, dispelling any myths or confusing information.
