Find your perfect diamond.

Welcome! If you know which specification combinations to look for your decent R50 000 diamond budget will get you much further than you’d think.

You’ll find some valuable pointers below, but eager beavers can jump right to the prices HERE.

I recommend you focus on optimising size. Nothing has a larger impact on the overall appeal of the engagement ring... really. None of the diamonds listed below are even close to being full of flaws and impurities. They're clean to the naked eye.

The degree to which a diamond sparkles is ultimately determined by the level of craftsmanship. This is referred as the cut grade. Don't be tempted to compromise on the cut, polish and symmetry grades in your pursuit of size. That's how you end up with a diamond that resembles a dull piece of glass. You can find all you need to know about diamond “cut”-grades here.

If you’re set on a 1,00ct diamond, do yourself a favour and take a look at the cushions on offer. They’re stunning and offer tremendous value. 1,00ct round diamonds in this budget range will have a small tinge of colour.

When you see something you like... please get in touch. We're here to help and will gladly answer any questions. You can also see my top picks by paying attention to diamonds marked in italics.

Enjoy!

Our Special Order system is extremely easy. We can't stock every shape in every colour, clarity and cut grade. That's over 400 000 combinations. So we obsessively work through the stock-lists of our mega-factory suppliers abroad and cherry pick the best deals from literally thousands of options. We order close to weekly so any special order can picky-back with our next order to our offices in South Africa. If you're looking for very specific diamond combinations this is also a great route.

To see where the sweet-spots are for colour and clarity combinations I recommend you read: "Buying Round Diamonds: Everything You Need to Know". All the clarity tips are applicable to cushion and oval shapes too.

We'd love to help you find the perfect diamond. Simply reach out.

You're also wholeheartedly invited to visit us in Pretoria or Rosebank to discuss whatever you have in mind over a nice cup of coffee. We also have full-time designers in our studios if you'd like some invaluable input and ideas.

You'll have a blast.

Kind Regards,

Johan Poggenpoel, Co-Founder.
