Our common queries
How do I tell if I am getting a quality diamond?
Good question. It’s really hard to tell without having an experienced diamond merchant on your team. Have a look at our guide on GIA certified diamonds to help you understand what makes a quality diamond. We do suggest being wary of information you read online regarding diamond quality – there is a lot of information that is incorrect and misleading.
Our educated team is dedicated to finding the best possible diamond for your budget. Visit our Brisbane store now to discuss the beautiful diamonds we have in our range.
How are engagement rings made?
Diamondport engagement rings and wedding rings are all made to order, handcrafted rings, manufactured in Brisbane. Our talented designers use the latest in computer-aided (CAD) jewellery design software to create beautiful, high-quality Australian made rings.
Our dedicated team of jewellery manufacturers are also able to handmake rings starting with just the raw materials. This process involves a small bar of metal which is rolled, bent, twisted and shaped to form a ring. It’s labour intensive, thus more expensive than CAD cast rings. If you would like a handmade ring, please discuss this at your consultation.
Diamondport Handcrafted rings utilise Computer-Aided Design (CAD). Elements of a ring (usually a setting and shank) are cast in a mould then cleaned, joined, set and polished by hand.
At Diamondport, we prefer to make handcrafted rings as it enables a better design in the ring. It’s an efficient, more precise method, and produces high quality, durable rings.
Can I Buy An Engagement Ring yet buy a diamond elsewhere?
Can I Buy a Diamond Without Buying an Engagement Ring From You?
Yes, perhaps you’ve been lucky enough to inherit a family heirloom, or you’re ready to remodel an old design. Bring your diamonds in and we’ll happily help you design something beautiful to suit your style.
Do I Get To View The Ring Before Purchase?
How do I Pay For My Ring?
A 50% deposit is generally required when you first order your ring and the remaining 50% will be due on pickup of your ring.
Diamondport offers multiple ways for payment:
- EFTPOS – Mastercard, Visa, AMEX
- Direct Deposit
- Preapproved finance option through SKYE Finance – find out more here.
I’m surprising my girlfriend – what if she doesn’t love my engagement ring design?
At Diamondport, we have a True Love Guarantee – if she doesn’t love the Diamondport ring you choose, we’ll remake it, simple as that! We want you to both be overjoyed with your engagement ring, and if that means redesigning and remaking it, we’ll happily do so.
As for custom makes, we offer the remake at a 50% discount.
How Long Will My Engagement Ring take to make?
Our Diamondport range can be delivered within a 7-week timeframe.
Custom rings can be delivered within a 7-week timeframe but can be delayed due to the design process. We’ll give you a timeline during the design stage – we know you’re eager to pop the question.
We do try to meet all deadlines though – if you need a ring quickly, get in touch and we can work with you the best we can. We have been known to create a custom engagement ring in only a few days.
