CHOOSING AN ENGAGEMENT RING
FOR HIM – ITS SECRET MEN’S BUSINESS
Keeping your proposal secret can be nerve-racking enough. If you’re confident of your love, you probably know she’ll say “yes” to you – but will she say “yes” to the ring? So here’s how to make sure you get the right answer.
Design to your budget
No matter what you can afford, we’ll make sure that your handcrafted design takes her breath away – and you can’t put a price on that.
Working out your budget gets things off to a good start.
We’ll explain the components that add up – diamonds, gemstones, style of ring, the setting and the craftsmanship.
You can handpick your own diamond, with affordability in mind.
Make it right for her
You probably know your lady well enough to know what she likes – her taste, her style, her personality. We’ll take all of this into account, to help you choose everything from the shape of the diamond, to the design of the engagement ring. It might be a classic solitaire, an ornate vintage inspired piece, or a three stone trilogy. With our guidance and your input, we know she’ll love her ring, as much as she loves you.
A fitting choice
Try to get hold of your girl’s dress ring to get her finger size right.
We are very good at estimating size but if you need to modify, resizing is FREE.
Consider an inexpensive proposal ring which you can surprise her with – then after the thrill of the proposal, choose her dream engagement ring together.
FOR HER – WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
Saying “I do” is an exciting commitment. But if your guy finds the thought of choosing the right engagement ring daunting, we can make it easy for him. All he has to do is come in and select the diamond that will be the brilliant centrepiece of your individual creation. Without any guesswork your guy can be sure you and your individually designed engagement ring, will live happily ever after.
A beautiful reflection of you
Knowing what you want takes a lot of pressure off him. He gets the girl – and you get your dream ring – a design that reflects your taste, style and personality. It’s an easy decision that makes perfectly good sense. It’s as simple as:
Your fiancé selects the diamond shape you both like. (He may choose to quietly let us know his budget – or be upfront about it.)
You let us know what you’d like in diamond size, colour and clarity.
You choose the design that best suits you – solitaire, halo, claw-set or bead-set.
We record all your details such as finger size, design style, your prefered metal type and keep it on your personal file.
Then your fiancé simply comes in with your record card, confirms your name and we commence your unique design!

Your man may choose to discuss his budget privately with diamonds presented for selection, with his price range in mind.
You may both choose to be involved in the whole design process, or your man may prefer to return when it suits him, for an added element of surprise.

Some days are diamonds
There’s no doubt about it, a diamond is the ultimate gift of love. So before you buy her engagement ring, you need to start by choosing the diamond that best suits you both.
Just like every couple, no two diamonds are exactly the same, so choosing the diamond’s shape and understanding the four C’s – carat, clarity, cut and colour is an important part of the decision-making. You’ll have a full appreciation of the true value of your diamond, which we’ll hand select to ensure you get the maximum beauty and value for your budget.

BUYING A DIAMOND
There are many facts to consider
There is nothing as thrilling as finding the perfect diamond for a customer, especially for an engagement, wedding, or custom-designed piece. It’s something we do on a daily basis and we never tire of our obsession. There are so many facets to selecting a quality diamond that’s brilliant at every level – here are some of them.
Fact 1: We’re really fussy
When you inspect and select diamonds for a living and you are a GAA-trained gemmologist, the choice is going to be brilliant. A diamond of the highest pedigree. In fact, a diamond that may look OK to the untrained eye won’t get past our inspection. We see everything.
Fact 2: We make it unique
Every diamond we handpick is specifically tailored to your taste and style. That’s because we spend time with you to understand what’s perfectly right for you. We’ll make it unique – and we’ll make the selection process effortless.
Fact 3: We’ll coach you
Think of us as your diamond coach. We will guide you one-on-one on everything to do with diamonds. It’s as simple as choosing the perfect diamond – and once you understand what determines the value of your diamond and we demonstrate the uniqueness of each diamond; you’re sure to make the grade when it comes to buying a diamond.
Fact 4: We’ll consider your budget
We believe there is a diamond for every budget, and we will happily work with you to find the perfect diamond you can afford – one that lives up to your expectations in every possible way.
Fact 5: Sustainably sourced and conflict-free
At Andrew Mazzone Design Jeweller we are committed to sourcing our diamonds and gemstones in the most ethical and environmentally responsible manner possible. We only deal with members of the Jewellery Association of Australia who adhere to strict codes of conduct and the Kimberley Process.
The Kimberley Process is a joint government, industry and civil society initiative to stem the flow of conflict diamonds – rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments. This prevents the flow of conflict diamonds, ensuring that the journey from mine to supplier to designer is conflict-free.
