Not exactly sydney but I purchased my diamond with Empress Diamonds in Melbourne CBD and the price wasn’t nearly as expensive as Michael Hills for the quality of the diamond I got (1 ct, f, VVS1, gia triple x for $15k). It did cost me about 1.3k to get it set on a handmade platnium ring (note that handmade is usually more expensive than handcrafted or casted).

Do not go to Michael Hill! They don’t even stock anything over a G VS2. Not saying getting a G is bad but as an example I went in store for fun a vouple of weeks back and they were trying to charge 10k for a 1ct solitare, I Si (can’t remember one or two). Ridiculous. So you could get a near colourless for a much better price.

A bee was posting somewhere about Enchanted Diamonds, their website looks amazing. I think you pay 10% to import a diamond to Oz, even with that and our currently weak Aud (relative to the US) you can get something amazing with a modest budget!

I’m having one being made in Sydney right now! The jeweller in Perth got a jeweller in sydney to cut the sapphires and make the ring. we thought they were cutting it in Sydney because thats what we were told, but we now suspect its actually outsourced to Sri Lanka/Bangkok. Initial quote was 7 weeks, but when 7 weeks finished, we asked about it and they said it wasn’t near ready at all!! Sydney jeweller NEVER informed us about the delay or problems they faced UNTIL we asked them about it when the 7 weeks was up! They then said they needed another 3 weeks, and when that came, they want ANOTHER 2 WEEKS. My fiance and I are absolutely furious at them!

Then, their delivery date is 9th Dec to our Perth jeweller, guess what, today they said there’s a SLIGHT DELAY to it. AGAIN. I am definitely not going to recommend that Sydney jeweller even if it looks bloody fantastic (it better be!) because they are so not punctual at all and terrible communication!

 

will definitely show a pic when it arrives.
