Here's how to find your perfect diamond. 

Buying R100 000+ Engagement Rings In South Africa

Realise you’re in niche territory.

When you’re shopping in the R100 000+ budget range in South Africa you’re most definitely in the top 1%-3% of shoppers. The majority of rings we manufacture in this range are exported to Hong Kong, Australia and the USA. Our rapidly growing market share (locally) of this segment has driven us to expand our footprint to Rosebank Johannesburg (Now open - Right at the entrance of the new diamond centre located at 3 Sturdee Avenue), and our first US studio in Houston next year. We want to personally serve and interact with the couples who spend these amounts of money on our products.

How we source and price R100 000+diamonds. 

I encourage you to scan over our sourcing process here. We’ve developed a deep, multi-layered method to ensure our diamonds offer tremendous value, and you don’t have the risk of choosing a dud diamond. Here's a quick rundown;

When it comes to R100 000+ rings we’ll gladly show the shapes available, what a certain size looks like, how the different colours look etc. A nice comprehensive matrix of options.

After you’ve selected a range of colours, clarities and shapes you’re interested in we reach out to the largest diamond polishing houses in the world and scan through literally thousands of stones to compile a short-list of stones we think offer great value. The stock we do carry in this bracket has been very finely selected so often we’ll have a stone available.

This way we can stick to thin margins, stay profitable, and you can get exactly what you’re looking for. We import goods weekly so you won’t even pay import cost...

A well stocked high end jeweller might have 10 x 2ct stones in stock. We can offer you thousands of perfectly cut, GIA and HRD certified diamonds with HD photos, a full upgrade plan where you’ll receive 100% credit for the price paid for a diamond when you upgrade to a stone of a higher value. and obviously way more tailored service and advice.

We have no incentive to move a stone we’ve been stuck for for 18 months. If someone buys one of the pieces we keep in the high end spectrum (the matrix I was talking about) I’ll replace it as soon as possible.

If you’re in the market or just want some more information feel free to reach out to me direct on [email protected]. I'll gladly offer my best tailored service and advice. I know you've found your jeweller.
