Trade In Your Gold and Support a Local Industry

Although the rest of the world might be struggling, it does provide you with an opportunity to take advantage of the resulting high gold prices, trade in your old gold and support a local industry.

We will accept your old gold as a trade in, not only on any new piece of jewellery, but also on any commission job, remodeling work, repair or valuation. We promise to pay you the full wholesale rate for your gold, take no commission and either transfer the funds into your account or reduce the cost of the work undertaken.

And, best of all, because your old gold will be refined, recycled and reused in the Australian jewellery trade, you will be helping maintain a sustainable local manufacturing industry.
Check your jewellery boxes now for overlooked jewels or neglected hand-me-downs and put them to good use to create, remodel or repair a brand new piece of heirloom jewellery. Call us now on (02) 9299 1117 and we will provide a quote for your old gold.

A Guide to Diamond Stud Earrings

The perfect pair of diamond stud earrings are an item of jewellery you will very happily wear every day. But how do you choose the perfect pair of diamond stud earrings? Here is our simple guide:

1. The diamonds in your stud earrings don’t have to be perfectly white but they shouldn’t show any colour either. Diamonds in the G or H colour range will make into excellent diamond stud earrings. Colour ranges lower than this might show some yellow.

2. No one should come too close to your diamond studs when they are on your ears so it isn’t necessary for the diamonds in your diamond stud earrings to be perfectly clean. Diamonds in the SI ranges will make perfect diamond stud earrings. That said, stones that are heavily marked won’t sparkle and we certainly want sparkly diamond stud earrings.

3. Cut is very important when it comes to diamond stud earrings. Fine cut diamonds sparkle like stars and won’t stand out too far from the ear. A poorly cut stone is usually cut too deep. It won’t sparkle as much and will stand out too far, never sitting properly on the ear. Also, you pay for diamonds by their weight; the heavier the stone the more it will cost. When it comes to diamond studs, you want to see every bit of the diamonds you pay for.

Ideal Cut
Poor Cut

4. Remember, two diamonds make up a pair of stud earrings; they have to match. Your diamonds should have the same colour, the same clarity and, most importantly, the same dimensions. Two stones might have the same weight but if they are cut differently then they will have different widths and one will look larger than the other when you wear them.

If you would like to know more about diamond stud earrings or even try some on for size call us now on 02 9299 1117.Incidentally, those diamonds on our model Tess are one carat each. You are able to see our full range of diamond stud earrings by following this link.

Halfway to Diamond Earrings

If you have ever inherited an old diamond ring (which you never wear) or own a single diamond earring; then you might be in luck! These loose diamonds have real value since they are one half of a pair of new diamond earrings.

If you supply us with a single diamond we will happily match it with another stone to allow you to make a pair of diamond stud earrings. While there will be a charge for the new diamond, the cost of making a pair of studs is minimal and you will have a pair of diamond earrings you will enjoy wearing for many years.

We are able to match stones of any size and, with a supply of older cut stones, we are able to match stones of any age as well. Empty your jewellery boxes, rifle through your sock draws, find those unmatched diamonds and you will be halfway to a pair of brand new diamond earrings.
