What if I need my ring resized?

In the event that your ring size has changed, we’ll be more than happy to resize your ring to a perfect fit. Please keep in mind that some designs have limitations to sizing. Sizing cost vary due to metal prices and labour costs. Should you require a resize, please get in touch.  

Can I exchange my order?

What if I don't live in Pretoria?

No problem! We have clients all over the world and would love to collaborate with you on your custom design. The custom process happens via email, over the phone or in person. When it comes to hand selecting your diamond, we send you high quality images and videos so that you can get a true visualization of your options.

What if I live overseas?

We've got you covered! For custom orders, get in touch to start the bespoke process. To order an item from our online store, send us an email and we'll send you an invoice with your order and international shipping rate. Payments can be made through PayPal or a wire transfer. Once your order is ready, we'll ship it to your door with DHL express. It takes approximately 5-20 working days to arrive, depending on where you are.

Can I have my outdated ring remade into a modern design?

Absolutely! We love remodeling old jewellery and would love to reset your diamonds. Your old metal is sent in for refining, in order for us to work with a pure alloy. With the refining process there are slight losses involved and we’ll have to add some new metal to be able to create a new piece. You therefore get discounted on your metal cost. If you have an old piece of jewellery that doesn’t get the love it deserves, get in touch to give your old piece a makeover!

Are your diamonds ethically sourced?

Yes! We work with a trusted network of suppliers who source diamonds ethically and sustainably.
