... AND HELP YOU TO CHOOSE THE BEST STONE TO FIT YOUR PRIORITIES AND YOUR BUDGET
Apart from a unique design, the next best thing about having your ring designed and made for you is that you get to choose exactly the stone you want to use. It doesn’t have to be a diamond, and there is a wonderful range of unique and gorgeous gemstones out there to choose from. Whatever your design and priorities there will be a diamond or gemstone which enables us to create your dream ring within your budget and we will find it for you.
However, not all gems are readily or easily available, you may not even know what the full range of options open to you encompasses, and in all cases, diamonds included, you need to know what you are buying. This requires skill, experience and specialist knowledge. It is a mistake to think you can simply rely on a diamond ‘certificate’ (more accurately called a report because it does not ‘certify’ anything), too often they obscure, rather than reveal differences. To compare one diamond with another, you also need to know what characteristics will influence the overall look, sparkliness and quality of a stone. This is even more the case when it comes to precious coloured gemstones.
Julie has almost 20 years experience of sourcing and buying beautiful gemstones and excellent contacts with specialist suppliers. This means we can source any gem, from Alexandrite to Zircon and everything between, in all shapes, sizes and colours - all from thoroughly reputable specialist gem merchants. We have access to unrivalled sources of diamonds, including the London and Antwerp diamond bourses, De Beers ‘sightholders’ and expert diamond cutters, just one of whom has more than 3000 ‘certificated’ stones to choose from.
