Prouds Historical Background

The well-established brand name in Australia extended their operations into Fiji in the early 70’s and operated the one store in Suva,
the capital city of Fiji as Prouds – The Jewellers.

The owners, The Proudfoot family sold their business in Fiji to Stinson Pearce Limited including the intellectual property rights and the new owners extended the Prouds stores in other major towns, hotels and resorts while always maintaining the brands efficacy and maintained the logo mark Prouds – The Jewellers as in the Prouds Australia.

A New Beginning

On 1st June 1985 Motibhai Group acquired Stinson Pearce Limited and included in the acquisition was Prouds – The Jewellers store.

Motibhai Group with its extensive exclusive agencies and international network allowed the Prouds stores to evolve and thus a new beginning and new status for all Prouds stores in Fiji. The Jewellers tagline was dropped and a modified logo mark was adopted
signalling a new look, a new life was injected into the famous Prouds name in Fiji and later Papua New Guinea.
