Find your perfect diamond. 

How to get the most out of your R15 000 budget;  

Your engagement ring design and choice of center diamond should be complementary all round… the good old 2+2 =5.

Engagement rings simply look nicer when setting with a larger center diamond. There's no way around that.

But; here's how to optimise the size of your diamond, without any visual compromises;

  • Diamond colors I-J-K-L-M still appear predominantly white, especially if they have medium to very strong blue fluorescence. You're more than welcome to visit us and see these colours for yourself. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
  • Clarity; Its as simple as ensuring there are no visible flaws in your diamond when viewed with the naked eye. To be safe, don’t drop clarity below the SI1-grade. Some lower clarities can still be eye-clean, be sure to see the diamond in person.
  • Cut: Don’t compromise on the quality of the craftsmanship when you’re looking for your ideal diamond. The cut should be Excellent or Very Good. Cut is, and will always be, the most important C.
  • Settings with halo's increase the perceived size of the centre diamond.

I have some awesome deals for you below. Take a look, and if you have questions - we’re here to help.

Currently these are my top picks in the up to R15 000 range;
