Diamonds and Diamond Jewellery:

Rings that are custom made need a longer time of around 4-6 weeks. The final sale price of the item may change depending on the requirements to make the ring. Our consultants will be able to provide you an accurate quote for your item within 2-5 working days.

Diamond prices will change depending on the market hence prices are generally unpredictable. However, if you have your eye on a good quality diamond but are hesitant about purchasing it, you can contact us and we will reserve it for you over a 24 hours period.
- Why is it that similar diamonds can sometimes be differently priced?
The price of diamonds depends on the market at the time we source them. Hence, we base our pricing on its cost and not just the current market pricing or stone characteristics. Rest assured that we source our diamonds to offer customers the most competitive pricing.
If you are stuck deciding between similar diamonds that are of different pricing, you can contact us for a diamond expert to compare them. In the case that the diamonds are of the same value, you may also request a 24 hours reservation on that diamond.

We offer complimentary resizing within the first 60 days of purchase. This service is available for all platinum, white gold and yellow gold engagement rings. Certain ring types, such as eternity rings or tension rings, cannot be resized. For these cases, we recommend having your ring exchanged for another size within 30 days of purchase. Please note that exchanging for another ring size may result in a price difference due to a change in the number of gemstones or weight of metal used.
