You probably thought you would never find yourself in a situation where you are about to invest in loose diamonds, yet you now know that having a diamond engagement ring custom made is no more expensive than buying a ring off the jewellery store shelf. That being the case, it is a no-brainer to opt for the bespoke ring and that means acquiring the stones in raw form, which the custom jeweller will cut to your specifications.
Of course, pink diamonds are very much sought-after and with that in mind, here are a few tips for safely acquiring pink diamonds for a unique diamond engagement ring.
Reputable Custom Jeweller
Once you make contact with a custom jeweller who has some of the best collection of loose Argyle pink diamonds Australia has ever seen, the rest is easy. Start with the ring design and regarding pink diamonds, you have a wide range of GIA-certified stones from the famous Argyle Mine in Western Australia to choose from. Any well-known custom jeweller would have a good reputation, which has taken years to earn and they certainly would never sell inferior diamonds, so you can rest assured that the stones are genuine and fairly priced.
If you were determined to get your hands on a few pink diamonds, you will find a retail jeweller who would facilitate the transaction, but when you commission a custom jeweller, they can buy the stones at trade prices. That is a saving of 10-15% and when the expert quotes you a price, you will see that it is about the same as the cost of an existing ring and for such an important occasion as your engagement, why not have a truly one-of-a-kind ring that was designed and handcrafted by a skilled custom jeweller?
When the jeweller acquires the loose pink diamonds, GIA certification accurately describes each diamond’s properties, using the 4C system of grading. The jeweller would advise you regarding the cut, along with every aspect of the ring design, to create something special that will become a family heirloom to be handed down to the next generation.
As we are still in the middle of the COVID crisis, it is possible to commission a custom jeweller to design and make a pink diamond engagement ring without ever meeting them face to face. Thanks to VoIP technology, you can have a video call with the jeweller at any time. Indeed, this would be your main method of communication, while the jeweller would send you design images and discuss minor alterations. Once the final design is approved by the client, the jeweller works his magic and the ring is presented to you via Zoom call, allowing you to get a close-up view from many angles, with the right lighting.
Secure Online Payment
Once you have seen the ring and are happy with everything, a secure online payment will see the jeweller package the ring, along with the paperwork, and send it to you via special courier. The ring is fully insured until it reaches your hand and you have eliminated human contact using the Internet for each stage of the process.
