Engagement rings are handmade in Australia.

Every ring is made to last using responsibly recycled metals.

Rings can be set with Australian or Canadian diamonds, Australian, American and Fair Trade coloured gemstones.

We can also work with your own heirloom diamonds and gems if their condition is suitable for setting in a ring.

If you are not a fan of newly mined diamonds or gemstones, we also offer you recycled diamonds, moissanite (a laboratory made Diamond alternative) and synthetic gemstones.

How do I design an engagement ring via the internet?

Once you make contact with us you will guided through the design process by email. You can share your ideas and we will go back and forth with you until the design is ready and the diamonds or gems are chosen.

After 10 years of designing rings this way, we have perfected the art of designing remotely.

If you need reassurance that you are dealing with real people, you are also welcome to phone.

How long will it take to make my engagement ring? 

The standard answer is five to six weeks from the time the design is completed. However, each ring is different and there can be a delay if it is peak season or there are a lot of hands involved in the ring making process. If you are in a rush and the design is fairly simple (i.e. without engraving) then there is a chance that we can meet a tighter deadline. Just ask us and we will see what we can do for you.

How much will it cost?

It is very hard to give a precise answer to this question as there are so many variables. Metal type, finger size, diamond or gem size, colour and quality and more.

For an idea of pricing we have created a price guide and written this blog article.
