Pink diamonds are a luxury item. Pinks over a certain size are often bought as investments Their value rises every year. The Argyle mine where most of the world’s supply is found has a limited lifespan and the price will only increase.*

*this is not intended as investment advice. It is an observation of the trending of pink diamond prices.
Prices for gemstones vary wildly depending on type and quality.
You might pay only tens of dollars for small, locally produced sapphires, or tens of thousands of dollars for larger, exotic and high quality gems. (Throw lab-created gems into the mix and that makes things even more complicated.)
The best thing to do is contact us to discuss what you want and how that will fit into your budget.
Ring designs with custom ‘technical’ (or workshop) drawings are free of charge. As is (of course) our advice.
Typical Technical Drawing

Valuations aren’t essential, but they’re very useful for insurance purposes so you have an independent record of the replacement value of your jewellery piece.
Sadly, over the years, several of our customers have lost their rings – one even destroyed hers in a push bike accident – so insurance is a good idea (it may simply be a matter of adding specific items to your home and contents policy).
Independent valuations are $70 per piece (inc. GST).
Postage and transit insurance
All rings or ring sets come with a beautiful, sustainable timber ring box. (Pendants and other significant pieces of jewellery get a timber box too!)
