We take the time to inform and educate you on the true and ultimate value for money when it comes to diamonds, precious stones and metals. We do this because we strive to build a long-term relationship with our clients. We only use high quality diamonds in all our work; higher quality diamonds than those found on the high-street. This means we never use stones that have visible marks or colour that can be seen by the naked eye. We can supply flawless diamonds if required but we will always advise on the ultimate value for money. Fact is, most people cannot tell the difference between the same size, flawless diamond and another with the naked eye. We also offer exceptional aftercare service to all our clients.
Our prices are competitive because we make and sell direct to the public. Our craftsmanship is second to none. The quality of our materials and craftsmanship is as good as the likes of Tiffany but without the higher price tag.
David is a fellow of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths (I.P.G.), a prestigious organisation that one has to be a fine craftsman to belong to. The I.P.G. was set up to enhance and promote high standards in the jewellery trade. It’s members are hand picked and are the elite of craftsmen in the British Isles.
A large ring can take up to 3 weeks from design to completion – 1 week to design and manufacture the mount, 1 week for the ASSAY office in London to hallmark and return the ring, and 1 week to fit the stones and do the final polish. This is a guideline only since more intricate pieces can take longer. If the bespoke jewellery item is required sooner then we will do our upmost to accommodate you.
Our diamonds are sourced from trusted suppliers and all are certified conflict-free diamonds. We buy Sapphires, Rubies and Emeralds direct form a source in Sri Lanka that have their own mine.
Yes we do offer private consultations at whatever time is suitable for you, whether that’s during working hours or after hours.
All our work is guaranteed, including repairs. We do not put a time limit on our guarantees because customer satisfaction is our most important priority.
