As his future brother-in-law later observed, "Australia has my sister to thank for giving this country one of its greatest scientists". He described the position as "a humble one":“Since founding her company, she has changed the way people interact with and wear their jewelry,” noted Susan Abeles, Phillips’s head of jewels in the Americas.
