Mazzone ring experience from QLD
Claire & Greg were our first clients to try the Mazzone ring experience from QLD entirely via Skype. They purchased their beautiful solitaire diamond engagement ring entirely online through skype consultations and they share their experience below. This year in April due to COVID-19 our store closed for the first time in 60 years. and even though we are all back to being open now, Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers continues to help our customers via skype or zoom if preferred.
Greg & Claire’s online purchase story
I found Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers through Instagram. It was a targeted ad and I loved the look of the settings they had made for other engaged couples. I sent through a web enquiry and Jemma got back to me so quickly to organise a Skype call. We were actually looking at purchasing a ring online and having it shipped to Australia. But, when we spoke to Jemma we realised we wanted to support a local Australian business and it would actually be more cost effective (and less stressful!!) to do so.
The experience was really easy and enjoyable. Jemma shared with us the details of the diamonds that Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers had available and we discussed our preferences. She took everything on board and kept us updated throughout the whole process.
When did you meet
Greg and I have been together since April 2019, it’s definitely been a bit of a whirlwind romance – but when you know, you know…as cheesy as that is!
How did you meet
It’s actually a bit embarrassing, we first started talking on Instagram and it took us a whole month before we actually met in person. We were both pretty invested by the time we met and so it was a very nervous first meeting – we both wanted it to go super well.
I knew the ring had arrived as I’d collected it from our lobby, but I was very restrained and didn’t look at it. Greg booked a long weekend away in Noosa, one of our favourite places that holds many happy memories for us. I had a very strong inkling that it was going to happen. He really gave it away when he said he wanted to go for a sunrise walk to our fave beach together, and that I had to “wear something pretty”! As the sun rose over the beach, Greg got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I of course said yes, and was immediately distracted by someone taking photos in some bushes. I thought it was just someone photographing the surfers in the ocean, but it turned out to be my best friend who had driven in the pouring rain during the early hours of the morning to hide out and wait!
The engagement ring
We are both so in love with my engagement ring. It’s exactly what we had hoped for and makes us so happy to see it every day.
