How does the process work?
How long does the process take?
For engagement rings, we recommend starting the process 2-3 months before your proposal to allow for enough time to design and finalise your perfect ring!
Production time will take around 2-3 weeks for engagement rings as well as all jewellery but we can expedite this process upon request.
What are your hours of operation?
10am-7pm on weekdays and 11am-2pm on Saturdays
By appointment only.
Where are you based?
We are based in Hong Kong! Sheung Wan specifically.
Do you serve overseas clients?
Yes we do! We ship worldwide so contact us for more details on shipping, insurance, and duties tax.
Where do you manufacture your jewellery?
All our rings and jewellery are made in Hong Kong - with bench jewellers (sifu's) that have been in the industry for 30-40 years!
Diamonds & Gems
Are your diamonds certified?
Do you sell lab-grown diamonds?
No - we only deal with natural untreated diamonds.
How does the diamond selection process work?
We will help you curate a selection of diamonds for you based on your preferences. Feel free to show us pictures of the ring or jewellery you would like and we can create something custom for you.
Do you have a stocklist?
We have around 500-700 GIA certified diamonds in our inventory for your detailed selection. We can also source beyond our stock list as per your request.
Can I re-size my ring or jewellery?
Yes! Your first resize is free. After that, we will charge a fee for any additional resize.
1. We recommend sizing 1-1.5 sizes smaller or larger than originally made.
2. We recommend not resizing too many times because it can jeopardise the struture of the ring.
3. Bangles and eternity bands cannot be resized.
4. We only offer resize service for our Hong Kong customers.
Do you offer cleaning services?
Yes, feel free to make an appointment with us and we can clean your jewellery at our office (ultrasonic machine) free of charge.
Can you arrange insurance for jewellery?
Yes, we can recommend trusted insurance coverage for the jewellery you commission from us.
