“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo believed a statue lay hidden inside every block of fine stone and remarked, “It is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”
Akin to the artist, Riccardo Innocenti and Gareth Edwards saw fine architectural appointments, business embellishments, and home enhancements in the exquisite blocks of marble, onyx, granite, and limestone hidden in stone quarries throughout the world.
In August 2004, Edwards and Innocenti pooled their 20 years of industry experience. Choosing from Mother Nature’s best fine architectural stones, they created the premier Australian resource for handpicked natural stone products, Finestone.
In 2005, Finestone relocated to accommodate our ever-increasing selection of uniquely beautiful, natural stone products.
Finestone is committed to bringing an unparalleled choice of natural stone products to our clients. Gareth and Riccardo pride themselves on “walking the extra mile”. Specialising in custom orders of rare and exotic stone, that extra mile may take us to distant locations in Italy, India, Brazil, or Africa. Our unmatched product range and excellence in service combine to make Finestone the preferred resource of builders, architects, designers, and stonemasons throughout the Australian Gold Coast.
