News and media
We are honored to be featured in Style magazine’s story about Brisbane’s best jewellers for engagement rings 2019. Since we have relocated to Paddington two years ago, we have designed and crafted gorgeous engagement rings for many clients from Brisbane but also all over Australia.
Our custom design process
Do you want to take the adventurous approach and have us craft your unique ring for the love of your life in 15 working days or less? We can help you from the very beginning of the design, all the way to the finished beautiful ring in a gorgeous ring box, while working with your budget.
The design and stones
Bring your own ideas or let us help you design the perfect engagement ring. Sit down with our jewellers and discuss the design, metals, stones and your budget over a nice cup of coffee.
We will source a selection of Diamonds or gemstones for you to choose from and present you with a quote. You may already have a stone to create the new design and we are more than happy to create your ring.
Once you are happy with the concept of your ring and selected the Diamond or gemstone you like, our drawer will draw your engagement ring in 3D, with the dimensions of all stones and Diamonds to scale. The 3D technology allows you to see all the details of your new design, in an over sized rendered image, before we commence making the ring. This is also a good time to talk about any small changes to the design.
Crafting your ring
Your engagement ring will pass through several hands of our drawers, jewellers and setters.
We can share the images of the process with you to make it more exciting, or you can pop in and see the ring while we are crafting it in different stages.
Our turnaround is within 15 working days, but we will work with you if you have a tight deadline.
Collection and aftercare
Your sparkly engagement ring will be ready for collection in a beautiful box, ready for the proposal.
Our service is free for life, so you can bring it back anytime (we recommend once per year) so we can check all settings, clean, polish and if necessary rhodium plate your ring.
We can organize insurance with Q Report before you leave, so your ring is insured straight away. If you have your own insurance organized, we will provide a valuation certificate.
Is a custom made engagement ring more expensive?
To answer this question in the most simple way, the cost of each engagement ring is based on the cost of diamonds and/or gemstones, metal and labour (craftsmanship).
Who will craft your ring?
The important decision you need to make is which jeweller / company you are comfortable to spend your money with and what are the benefits.
There are so many choices (small local jeweller, large jewellery chains or buying overseas.) Being a small jeweller we will always be a bit bias, but our advice to you is to do your homework first and check out all the benefits for each option.
Local or overseas?
Like buying a car, going to someone you feel comfortable with and can trust is very important. Your engagement ring will need a regular service (checking, cleaning, polishing and rhodium plating if you choose white gold.)
If you get your ring from overseas and have any issues (stone falling out etc), can you return it to the supplier for any repairs?
So shop around and compare not only the prices, but the service and how you felt in the store. Ask questions, find out if there are any other hidden costs (yearly service of your ring) and are there any limits and stipulations if you have a warranty with your ring. Read reviews and choose your jeweller not just by the price, as you could be saving a few dollars buying the ring, but if the ring is poorly made it may cost you lot more in repairs in the long run.
Make it special
So the answer is no, custom is not always more expensive as you are paying for a quality made product with your input in the design and the choice of your stones, which is the best part of custom making an engagement ring. Your fiancé will absolutely love the effort you have put into it!

Padparadscha Sapphire engagement ring
“I went into to see both Dave and Tereza and was just blown away from the amount of knowledge they had. Even with my specific requirements I had for the ring, it only had made them more excited to find the perfect rock for me. In the end they came back with the completed ring and blew away my expectations. Absolutely gorgeous. It was a long journey to find that perfect hue for the rock, but I couldn’t think of anyone else better to do it with.”

Are coloured stones harder to maintain?
Compared to well cut Diamonds, coloured gemstones will dull off once they get dirty. Regular cleaning (at home or in our jewellery shop) will keep your stones sparkling all the time. Over many years of wear (it will also depend how you treat your ring), all gemstones will scuff and will need re-polishing.
This is an easy process if your stone is claw set, we just simply remove the stone, re-polish and reset it. If your setting is bezel set, the setting will have to be cut to remove the stone without causing any damage. The stone will be re-polished and we will repair the setting and reset the stone.
What is the best metal for an engagement ring?
Platinum or 18 carat gold are mostly used in engagement rings. It is a personal preference in what colour of gold you will choose, but white gold will need to be periodically rhodium plated. We offer free service with all our rings, so you never have to worry about paying for rhodium plating. Platinum is naturally white metal but requires few more steps while being polished to reach its incredible shine.
No matter what metal you choose, every ring will need to be polished and serviced about once per year to 18 months, to stay in its best condition.
What cut of Diamond is the hardest to keep clean?
Well cut round brilliant Diamonds can be covered in dirt from underneath and still sparkle! Other Diamond cuts like emerald, baguette or asscher, due to their style of cut do not refract light in the same way and therefore can look dull once dirty. These Diamonds just need a little more TLC to keep their sparkle. When you are choosing a specific cut of Diamond, keep this in mind, so you are not disappointed if you have to keep cleaning your ring more often. We offer free cleaning on all our engagement rings as often as you like, so pop in anytime as basic clean only takes few minutes.
Do I need an insurance for my engagement ring?
Same as we insure our cars, your engagement ring should be insured. We recommend jewellery only insurance QReport, due to their amazing policy. To have piece of mind while you are traveling overseas, accidental damage or loss, they have you covered in every instance! Depending on your home and content policy and what you are covered for, comparing your policies is a must. We can organise your jewellery insurance (Q Report) before you collect your precious ring, so you will be leaving our store with confidence. We can also supply a valuation for your home and content policy.
Can I use my own Diamond or gemstone?
Yes, we have used our client’s stones in many designs. Some customers like to have their family hairloom included in the design for sentimental reasons, or they already have a stone which they want to use for their loved one.
Some native cut gemstones can be difficult to use in certain setting styles, but because we have a local gem cutter, we can have your special gem re-cut to perfection if necessary.
We require 20% deposit for all Australian customers and 50% for all overseas customers before commencing any custom made job. The balance of payment will be due on collection, or prior to shipping, but you are welcome to make any payments while your ring is being crafted. We accept paypal payments for overseas customers.

We would love to help you, so don’t be shy and get in touch.
