3 Tips To Buying A Diamond Engagement Ring
Despite our name, diamond engagement rings are our specialty and this is where our clients win.
When you purchase a loose diamond or loose diamonds from Australian Diamond Brokers, you can be confident you are buying the best price diamond. We can then create or design a matching ring to go with your diamond. By buying a diamond and the ring from one vendor, you will be paying a better price than if you were to purchase a diamond or diamonds from a diamond merchant and then get a jeweller to create the ring for the diamond or diamonds. This is because the diamond merchant and the jeweller will be putting a mark-up on their product, whereas when our client buys a diamond and ring from us, our mark-up is lower because we are getting the whole business.
