You Bring the Gemstone, I’ll Bring the Manufacturing

The power of the internet lets you purchase pretty much anything online, and this has sparked a new trend…

More and more clients approach me with a diamond or gemstone they bought online from an overseas supplier, asking me to craft a bespoke jewellery design that features their purchased stone.

Seeing that I still get to do what I love – creating top-quality custom-designed jewellery – I’m not entirely against this new practice.

Technology is continually presenting us with new solutions, and it is only natural to want to explore all your options when choosing a bespoke jewellery designer in Sydney. So, if a client can source a high-quality stone at a bargain price, I’m still thrilled to be able to bring their dream piece of jewellery to life using their gemstone.

Rather that, than purchasing a cheaply manufactured, low-quality ring from an overseas supplier and dealing with a host of potential problems.

Quality Manufacturing Guaranteed – Always

Jewellery has always been my passion and crafting any form of jewellery , including remodelling, is what makes me love my job. So, whether you provide your own stone, or I source it for yourself, rest assured that every piece of jewellery is crafted with the same love and passion. 

The slight premium of a high-quality, custom-manufactured ring pairs nicely with your newly acquired stone. You’ll still walk away with a good deal, and at least you know your stone will be securely set with no risk of falling out!


Online Shopping Tips

Purchasing your gemstone or diamond online can be a risky affair with numerous pitfalls. But if you keep my advice in mind, you stand a much better chance of securing a quality stone and getting what you paid for.

Research, research, and research some more – and never buy the first gemstone or diamond that you come across. With endless information that is the internet, with only a little bit of research you’d be able to figure out if you’re making the right decision.

Tip 1

Firstly, familiarise yourself with what constitutes a good-quality stone and understand the various terminology used in describing gemstones and diamonds.

My 4C’s of Diamonds is a great starting place!

Tip 2

Secondly, do research on the website/seller that you are considering purchasing from. Search for any negative reviews or scam alerts before you make your final decision. 

Tip 3

Lastly, please read the fine print on their policies. A gemstone/diamond is a big purchase, and the last thing you need is not to receive precisely what you bought, and not being able to return or exchange it. 

So, if you absolutely adore online shopping, and you’re set on buying your stone online, I’d still love to work with you in creating your ideal dream piece of jewellery. The same level of passion and expertise, guaranteed! Have a read of my 5 step process to see how I can create a stunning piece of jewellery to suit your personality.


I look forward to hearing from you soon.
