The diamond industry is not transparent. Not. At. All. But we’ve got you covered. The Diamond Registry was founded in 1961 to protect consumers from overpriced diamonds and jewellery.

Unlike other jewellers, The Diamond Registry gives unbiased information about diamond prices, helps couples buy diamonds at current market price and save money on their bespoke jewellery. It’s the best way to find the true value of diamonds.

The initial step in the process is to provide you with free expert independent guidance, saving you time and money by knowing exactly how much a diamond costs upfront. Here we are talking about the true value of the diamond, what it costs on the wholesale market without any middlemen or brand markup. The market price is actually the real diamond value you can’t really afford to ignore, it’s far below the retail price and reflects all the variations of the market. In times like this, diamond prices have crashed, it might even be one in a lifetime opportunity to buy a diamond at a lower price point but if you look at jewellery stores, prices have not been adjusted. 

The second step involves them sourcing your diamond from all around the world and buying it at the best price for you, which brings us to the last step of the process: creating the bespoke piece around the unique beauty of your diamond. One of The Diamond Registry’s team specialities is custom designed and handmade engagement rings, they will help you design the perfect ring for your loved one. Their experts can definitely help you to work within your budget to design a ring that’ll make heads turn. 

That brings us to a crucial question when it comes to classic rings: branded or not?

Given the high price of high-end branded jewellery, is it worth paying that much for a classic diamond ring shape like a solitaire? It depends on your preferences. Brands such as Tiffany, Cartier, and Harry Winston have many pieces with an assortment of unique designs that justify the price tag. However, classic diamond shapes, especially solitaire rings, have little or no special design, the retail price is mostly comprised of brand markups.

10 Carat Round Solitaire Diamond

For example, a singularly elegant platinum ring featuring a 2.49 carat round brilliant cut diamond, E colour, VS1 from Tiffany & Co, costs around US$90,000.

Typically, 2 carat diamonds of the same nature would cost you approximately US$38,000. That is to say that a handmade bespoke ring with exactly the same GIA diamond characteristics, bought at wholesale price and exactly the same classic solitaire design, it would cost you more or less around US$40,000 depending on a few options. Keep in mind that a classic high-end ring is always cheaper to create with a diamond bought before it reaches the store, allowing you to get the same luxury ring for an appealing price. For that reason, why would you spend more than needed?

The Diamond Registry makes buying a bespoke diamond ring easy with a fast and simple process. Their service is built on trust, integrity and professionalism. It has been direct-to-consumers since 1961, and is proud to be one of the last remaining true independent wholesale-only diamond dealers in the world.
