Engagement Rings in Melbourne

Step 1- Decide how much you want to spend

We have a wide array of choices when it comes to engagement rings. Have a price range in mind before you book an appointment with our experts. Going in with fairly specific parameters will help you as well as us find the right diamond and ring to fit your budget.

As we are wholesaler generally our diamonds are half of RRP. So should you want to suss out pricing, checkout the big retailer and gauge pricing at a retail level. This will assist when purchasing from a wholesaler.

2. Do your homework

There’s a lot you can learn about diamonds before you even set foot in our showroom. Start with the 4Cs – Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight – so you understand how each influences the value of the diamond and adds to the overall appearance of the stone. You’ll learn what is most important to you and where you might want to compromise. But don’t get too carried away and choose exactly what parameters you want before seeing diamonds in real life. Remember use online as a resource, but do not use it to guide you on real pricing unless you feel safe buying online not knowing what you are really getting..

3. Gauge her or his taste in Jewellery

Pay attention to the kind of jewellery she already wears. Is she more classic or modern? Does she wear more white metals or yellow gold? Do her pieces tend to be more delicate or chunky? Sleek or ornate?

4. Know her preferred diamond shape

If she hasn’t made it easy for you by already voicing an opinion on the subject (or admiring someone else’s engagement ring), keep these thoughts in mind when considering shape:

She will be wearing this ring every day of your married life. It will need to go with everything from jeans to evening wear. If you’re uncertain about her diamond shape preference, it’s sensible to stick to the classics, such as a round. They became classics because they appeal to most people most of the time.
