Ready to pop the question?
Say yes to Diamondport.
If you’re ready to pop the question, chances are you’re just like 95% of guys we come across – you’ve got no idea where to start. What engagement ring should you buy? How much should you spend on an engagement ring? Where should you propose? Do you need to talk to her old man first?
Diamondport is here to help make the most important decision of your life as smooth as possible. We’ll work with you to design or select a beautiful engagement ring and wedding ring that she’ll love – almost as much as she loves you.
DESIGNED BY YOU OR DESIGNED BY US
THE PERFECT PARTNER DESERVES THE PERFECT RING
Maybe you know exactly what you want. Maybe you’ve got a bit of an idea. Or perhaps you need someone to walk you through the whole process.
At Diamondport, one thing is for sure: whether you want a custom-made engagement ring, or you’d rather choose something we’ve already designed, we guarantee you and your partner will love it.
one of a kind.
If you have specific ideas about what you want, or you have inspiration from somewhere else that you know she’ll love, we can design something unique for you.
Using state-of-the-art computer aided design (CAD) software, or hand sketching, our designers will turn your ideas into reality.
READY TO GO.
Not only do we do completely custom work for our clients, we also have a selection of our own designs that speak to the style and trend of the day.
If you’re not keen on creating something from scratch, perhaps you’ll find something in our design catalogue that you know will be just as perfect.
WE WORK QUICKLY.
All our rings are made right here in Brisbane. This means that you’re not just supporting local business, you also don’t need to wait months for your ring to be made (nevermind the horror stories of buying from overseas.
Because we operate locally, and because we work with you personally, we can craft your engagement ring for you faster than most jewellery stores.
KEEP YOUR ARMS AND LEGS.
QUALITY DOESN’T COST A FORTUNE.
There are no pushy sales people, no commissions, no up-selling, no smoke and mirrors. We have no incentive to make you spend more money than you want to, and because we make our own jewellery, we don’t prefer certain brands over others.
We also have less overheads, so you’ll end up spending less than if you shopped at a retail jewellery store. In a nutshell, you get exactly what you want, inside a budget that’s set by you, not us.
At Diamondport, the diamond merchant, sales consultant and business owner are all the same person: Ashley Portas. There are no supplementary sales staff at Diamondport; we don’t need to worry about the cost of salaries, commissions and bonuses that may be passed onto you by others.
Apart from running with less staff, we don’t have a ground floor shop front to pay high street rent on. No catalogues, no signage and no unnecessary retail paraphernalia. We operate efficiently from an upstairs suite in the Queen Street Mall, without all the bells and whistles.
Ashley started Diamondport off the back of an intense interest in the world of diamonds, so you know he’s been around the block a few times. He’s an expert at choosing the right diamond for the right price, and never sacrifices on quality. With his connections, he can source the best price on the perfect diamond for you, which is something not many others can say.
The man behind the magic
Meet Ashley Portas.
When former Ipswich man Ashley Portas got a job as a courier driver at the age of 17, he had no idea it would take him down a route where streets were lined with gold and diamond merchants.
“After ten years in the diamond wholesale industry as a Diamond Merchant, I started Diamondport because I wanted to offer high-quality rings, made in Australia by true master craftsmen. I love working closely with my customers to help couples find their perfect ring.”
LET’S BE FRIENDS
BEST FRIENDS. FOREVER.
If all we wanted to do was sell jewellery, we’d have opened a jewellery store. At Diamondport, we’re here to walk you through some of the most important moments in your life. We want to get to know you (and your partner).
We want to know where you’ll propose, and when you want to get married (and if you have no idea, we want to help you figure it out). In short, we don’t consider you a customer. You’re part of the Diamondport family.
FRIENDS FOR LIFE
We consider ourselves more ‘jewellery consultant’ than ‘jeweller’. We work to understand you and your partner so that your jewellery will create moments neither of you will forget.
Imagine if you got a free health inspection on your car every year. Heck, even a car detail would be nice every now and then. We hear you. While we don’t sell cars, you can rest assured any jewellery from us will be taken care of with a complimentary inspection and in-office clean each year. If required, a comprehensive polish or any repair work at the workshop can be arranged for a nominal cost. Till death do us part.
TRUE LOVE GUARANTEE
So what happens if she doesn’t like the engagement ring? If she’s game enough to tell you, we’ve got your back. If your fiancée doesn’t love her ring, you’ll love our True Love Guarantee*: bring it back and we’ll remake it. If that isn’t true love, we don’t know what is.
