I met with Nick a few months prior to purchasing an engagement ring for my now fiancé. He was very helpful, gentle and listened to what I was after. He helped to design a ring that would suit my fiancé. When I wanted a change made to the ring, he was very professional and reliable. My fiancé is still staring at her ring every day and is very happy. If this is what you’re after, I’d recommend seeing Nick Ireland.

Can't recommend Nick highly enough. Very easy to talk to and an expert craftsman in his job. I was also looking for a diamond jewellery maker, and read some of the reviews here, which encouraged me to have a chat with him. Fully endorse Nick's work and friendly nature.

Exceptional quality, design and service. If you want a quality piece which is unique and personal Nick Ireland and the Diamond Jewellery Studio is the place to visit. After reading the Google reviews for the Diamond Jewellery Studio I decided to get in touch with Nick. The reviews were spot on. After a few meetings (where Nick listened to what I was after, selected a few stones for me to view and then put together a design based on my budget) I am now the proud owner of one of Nick’s creations. It is absolutely beautiful and certainly something you will not see in a run-of-the-mill jewellery store. Thank you Nick!!!

Dealing with Nick to have an engagement ring made was a fantastic experience. His service was excellent and extremely professional from the moment I submitted a query through the website. Nick went over and above to make sure he had the most suitable diamonds for me to look at in person and was very helpful in guiding the selection process. The final result was stunning! I couldn't recommend Diamond Jewellery Studio enough.

Designing Your Ring

Designing an engagement ring is an exciting time for the buyer and the designer alike. A hands-on process that involves stone selection, setting and material selection, drawings, and final CAD-rendered plans, every ring is brought to life through the craftsmanship of our expert in-shop team.

For those new to the market, our entire process traditionally looks like this when designing your ring in our Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne studio:

1. Contact Our Team

Clients connect with one of our studios to book an appointment and begin the review and design process.

2. Confirm price point, ideal metals, and potential stones

We confirm your expected budget, potential stones, and materials. Among the most common metals used to create rings are yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, and platinum. Our master jewellers can review the benefits of each before you decide.

3. Review Recommended Settings and Diamonds

Based on these decisions, our team will present a select number of diamond ring settings, stones, and materials that meet your aesthetic vision and price needs.

4. Confirm stone grade and certification.

On closer inspection, some of our clients will want further information about their stone’s source, certification, or grade, whereas other clients will want to see several stone grades, carat sizes, and colours before deciding.

5. Review Design Plans

After material selection, our team creates a mock-up of the expected outcome, which the client reviews and confirms. From side stones to band engraving, we design dream rings by making them personalised for you and your loved one. Discover some of our recently completed rose gold and white gold rings handmade in the shop for inspiration.

6. Confirm Lead Time

The design process can vary based on your selected stone availability. If the chosen stone is in stock, our team will be able to schedule in studio time more quickly than stones that need to be sourced and secured. Your designer will be able to confirm lead time during the process once the final material selection has been decided.

7. See Your Final Engagement Ring in Real Time

Your ring is finalised and ready for review. The hard work is done -we welcome you to visit one of our studios in person or we can offer secure delivery for regionally based customers. With your ring in hand, we’ll sign off your project with the best care instructions and well wishes for the years to come.

8. Post-purchase Support Options

Need additional support post-purchase? Our craftsmen are always available for post-purchase support, best care guidance, and adjustments, if needed. Please speak with your designer about ring warranties, size adjustments, and care practices at the time of purchase.

The 5C's Of Diamonds

The diamonds and precious stones you select will serve as the crowning moment to your engagement ring. Diamond Jewellery Studio provides options from across Australia and all over the world, and our team can help select the setting that’s perfect for you.

1. CUT

The cut of a diamond determines how brilliant it looks under the light. We choose the best cuts of diamond to give your ring an incredible sparkle.


Diamonds are graded according to colour. The clearest, colourless diamonds are graded ‘D’, with the scale running to ‘Z,’ which is a diamond with a yellow tone. 


Clarity is important when you want a diamond that sparkles. The best diamonds are graded as FL/IF (flawless/internally flawless). Diamonds with small faults can still look incredible, as these imperfections are often impossible to see with the naked eye.


Carat is a measure of the weight of the diamonds used to create your ring. On average, engagement rings have around one to one and a half carats of diamonds. If you opt for a bespoke ring, you can choose the carat weight that suits your taste and budget.


We provide certification with our work, which confirms the carat weight, providence and other details.

The Different Diamond Cuts

The Diamond Jewellery Studio carries an extensive range of diamonds and precious gemstones. This allows you the freedom to select the specific gems to suit your ring, budget and partner.

We have access to incredible diamonds that have been responsibly sourced from local and international sites. Our precious gemstones are selected for their beauty and quality, and each one can be shaped into a setting that suits your partner’s tastes.

Some of the most popular diamond cuts include:


This classic cut is often requested for solitaire rings. Round diamonds are understated, but they offer unmatched brilliance.


An oval cut can look slightly bigger than a round diamond of the same carat weight, as it has a larger surface. So, if you are looking for ring designs that make a statement, you may want to start with an oval centre diamond. before you decide.


Emerald cut diamonds offer a vintage look that never goes out of fashion. These have a sleek, art deco style that shows off the clarity of the diamond.


Princess cuts are square and modern, and are perfect if you want to use multiple small gems in your diamond wedding ring. If you choose a larger solitaire, a princess cut can look beautiful at its centre.


Cushion cuts are also square but have more facets and rounded corners. They have a modern look and are one of our most popular options.


Pear cuts are a classic style that stands out, offering a ring that’s utterly unique.

Engagement Ring Guides


How much you spend on an engagement ring is a personal decision. We have high quality options ranging from $10,000 upwards, so budget is a conversation we’re happy to have. While traditional advice recommended “three months’ of salary,” that’s not a standard we adhere to.

The actual cost of your engagement ring will depend on:

  • The materials you choose
  • Stone setting
  • Stone clarity
  • Stone carat and size 
  • Complexity of the design

Each of these things has an impact on the cost. We carry ring settings and stones to suit budgets of every size, so we can help you find a ring at your ideal price point.

There are no expectations for stone size, colourway or setting. The right ring is one that’s personal to you and your partner. 

It’s more important to choose a stone that matches your personality, likes, dislikes and ideal price. These factors all influence which stone you should choose, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to stone carat.

Certain cuts of diamonds give off an excellent sparkle, making the stone seem bigger. Emerald and oval cut stones typically catch light the best and look the biggest when set on a ring.

The cut isn’t the only factor that affects how large a diamond seems. The apparent size of the stone is also affected by its grade, which is made up of carat size, dimensions, clarity and colour. Talk to our designers if you are searching for a striking cut and we can help get the most from any stone.

It is the diamond’s cut that gives it a shape as well as an incomparable brilliance. With facets, this cut allows light to get into the diamond and be reflected off of each facet, therefore creating a stunning sparkle.

That depends on the wearer! Some ring wearers will prefer white gold, and others will prefer yellow gold, but rose gold and platinum are great options too. It’s a good idea to choose precious metals that match your beloved’s regular jewellery selection. You can also match the engagement ring to the metal used for your wedding bands.

If you’re undecided as to which ring material is right, speak with one of our designers about your loved one and what you’re searching for.

Yellow Gold: Yellow gold is one of the most popular materials for engagement rings. Stunning, timeless and beautifully warm, yellow gold is the perfect accompaniment for every precious stone.

Rose Gold: Rose gold is becoming increasingly popular for engagement rings. With hints of blushing pink, rose gold is a unique metal that can make your ring and setting stand out.

White Gold: White gold is a combination of yellow gold and silvery metals, like silver, palladium and platinum. The blend creates a durable, stunning material that’s resistant to wear and tear, making it perfect for longer-term ring use.

Platinum: Platinum is a white metal that shines like no other. Hardy, wear-resistant and known for maintaining its brightness over time, platinum is the ideal metal for rings.

Deciding if $10,000 AUD is enough for an engagement ring involves considering various factors, including your financial situation, expectations, and the significance you place on the ring. Here’s an overview to help guide your decision:

  1. Budget and Financial Health: The most important factor is your own financial situation. It’s advisable to buy a ring that you can afford without going into debt. If $10,000 AUD doesn’t stretch your finances too thin, it can be considered a reasonable amount.

  2. Expectations and Preferences: The expectations of your partner and the type of ring they desire also play a crucial role. Some may prefer a simpler, less expensive ring, valuing the gesture more than the ring’s cost or size. Others might have specific expectations regarding the ring’s design, size, and quality. Communication is key to understanding these preferences.

  3. Market Prices: $10,000 AUD can buy a high-quality ring with a decent-sized diamond in Australia. The cost of a ring can vary greatly depending on factors like the four Cs (Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat weight), the type of metal for the band, and the jeweler’s brand. It’s possible to find a beautiful engagement ring within this budget, especially if you shop wisely and compare prices.

  4. Alternative Stones: Diamonds are traditionally the most popular choice for engagement rings, but other gemstones like sapphires, rubies, and moissanites can also make stunning alternatives and may allow you to get more size or uniqueness for your budget.

  5. Customization and Design: Custom designs may cost more but can offer a unique ring that perfectly suits your partner’s style. With a budget of $10,000 AUD, you have a good range of options for customization.

  6. Cultural and Personal Values: The amount spent on an engagement ring can also reflect personal or cultural values. Some see the ring as a significant investment and symbol, while others prioritize spending on experiences like the wedding or honeymoon.

In conclusion, $10,000 AUD is a substantial budget for an engagement ring in Australia, capable of securing a high-quality piece. However, the right budget is ultimately one that aligns with your financial capability, meets your partner’s expectations, and reflects your values. It’s advisable to conduct thorough research, compare options, and possibly consult with your partner to ensure the choice made is one that you’re both happy with.

The 3-month salary rule for engagement rings is a guideline suggesting that an individual should spend the equivalent of three months of their income on an engagement ring. This rule originated from a marketing campaign by De Beers in the mid-20th century, aimed at boosting diamond sales. The campaign suggested that spending three months’ salary on a diamond ring was a benchmark for demonstrating one’s love and commitment.

It’s important to note that this rule is not a strict standard and is widely considered outdated by many. The financial situation of each couple is unique, and spending should align with what is comfortable and realistic for them, rather than adhering to a rigid formula. The focus should be on the significance of the gesture and the mutual values of the couple, rather than the price tag of the ring.

In practice, couples are encouraged to discuss their expectations and budget together, ensuring that the purchase reflects their personal circumstances, priorities, and values. This approach recognises the importance of financial responsibility and the diverse ways people choose to express their commitment to each other.

Yes, men do wear engagement rings. This practice has become increasingly popular and is seen as a way to symbolise engagement for both partners, not just the woman. Traditionally, engagement rings were mostly worn by women, but societal norms and perspectives on relationships and marriage have evolved. Couples today are seeking more equality and mutual recognition in their commitments, leading to the rise in men wearing engagement rings as well.

This trend is also reflective of changing views on gender roles and relationships, making the gesture of wearing an engagement ring more inclusive. Additionally, in same-sex relationships, both partners may choose to wear engagement rings as a symbol of their commitment to each other. The design of men’s engagement rings can vary widely, from traditional bands to more unique and personalised options, reflecting the wearer’s individual style and preference.

Whether your partner picks out the engagement ring or not largely depends on personal preferences and the dynamics of your relationship, as well as the discussions and understandings you’ve shared about engagement traditions, such as men wearing engagement rings and the idea of budgeting for the ring.

In many cases, couples choose to shop for the engagement ring together to ensure that the final choice aligns with the wearer’s tastes and preferences. This approach allows both partners to be involved in the selection process, ensuring that the ring is not only a surprise but also a reflection of the recipient’s personal style. It also facilitates open communication about budget and expectations, which can be important for financial planning and setting the tone for future financial decisions in the relationship.

Alternatively, one partner may choose to surprise the other with a ring. In such instances, it might be helpful to have some insight into the recipient’s preferences regarding the style, type of stone, and metal for the ring. This information can be gathered through direct conversations about jewellery preferences, observations of the partner’s current jewellery, or seeking advice from friends and family members.

The concept of engagement rings for men, as discussed earlier, also plays into this. If both partners are wearing engagement rings, the decision on whether to choose rings together or surprise each other can apply to both parties. This evolving tradition supports a more inclusive and equitable approach to engagements, reflecting the diversity of modern relationships.

In conclusion, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to whether your partner should pick out the engagement ring. It’s about what feels right for your relationship, taking into account your collective preferences, the significance you both place on the engagement ring, and how you envision marking this important step in your lives together.

Before purchasing an engagement ring, there are several key details that might prove invaluable to know in advance. Reflecting on what others have learned through their experiences can help guide you through this significant decision with more confidence and insight. Here are some considerations, keeping in mind the context of our previous discussions:

  1. Understanding Preferences: Knowing your partner’s preferences in jewellery, including style, metal type, and whether they would prefer a diamond or an alternative gemstone, can ensure the ring you choose aligns with their tastes. This might involve subtle conversations, observations, or even consulting with their close friends or family.

  2. Budgeting Wisely: While the three-month salary rule is a traditional guideline for how much to spend on an engagement ring, it’s more important to budget based on what you can realistically afford without financial strain. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, and many find that prioritising personal financial health and future planning is more beneficial.

  3. The Importance of Research: Understanding the four Cs (Cut, Colour, Clarity, and Carat weight) of diamonds can greatly impact your purchasing decision. However, it’s equally important to research the jeweller’s reputation, warranty, and return policies.

  4. Customisation Options: Knowing that customisation is an option can open up possibilities for a more personalised ring that matches your partner’s unique style. However, customised rings can take longer to create and may be more expensive, so planning ahead is crucial.

  5. Ring Sizing and Adjustments: Ensuring the correct ring size while maintaining the element of surprise can be challenging. It’s useful to know that rings can typically be resized, although some designs are more difficult to adjust than others.

  6. Insurance and Protection: Understanding the importance of insuring the engagement ring can save a lot of heartaches later on. Rings are valuable not just in monetary terms but also sentimental value, making insurance critical for protection against loss, theft, or damage.

  7. The Experience Is Personal: Every couple’s journey to engagement is unique, and there’s no one correct way to choose or present an engagement ring. Whether the selection process is a solo venture, a joint decision, or involves a proposal with a placeholder ring, what matters most is the meaning behind the gesture.

  8. Resale Value and Practicality: While not the most romantic consideration, being aware of the ring’s potential resale value and practicality for everyday wear can influence your choice. Some designs are more timeless and durable, while others might be more susceptible to wear and tear.

Knowing these details beforehand can help navigate the process of selecting an engagement ring with more assurance and satisfaction, making the experience both memorable and deeply personal.

The primary difference between a “normal” engagement ring, typically featuring a naturally mined diamond, and a lab-grown engagement ring lies in the origin of the diamond. Here’s a detailed comparison:


  • Naturally Mined Diamonds: These diamonds are formed over billions of years under high-pressure and high-temperature conditions deep within the Earth’s crust. They are then mined from the earth through a variety of extraction methods.
  • Lab-Grown Diamonds: Lab-grown or synthetic diamonds are created in controlled laboratory environments using high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) or chemical vapour deposition (CVD) processes. These methods replicate the natural conditions under which diamonds develop but do so over a significantly shorter timeframe, often just a few weeks or months.


  • Cost-Effectiveness: Lab-grown diamonds tend to be more cost-effective, often priced significantly lower than their naturally mined counterparts. This price difference is due to the less intensive labour and environmental costs associated with their production.


  • Quality and Characteristics: Lab-grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds. They are real diamonds in every sense, except for their origin. The quality of both mined and lab-grown diamonds is assessed based on the four Cs (Cut, Colour, Clarity, and Carat weight).

Environmental and Ethical Considerations

  • Environmental Impact: Lab-grown diamonds are considered more environmentally friendly because their production requires less disruption of the earth and can be more easily regulated to reduce carbon emissions and other environmental impacts.
  • Ethical Concerns: Lab-grown diamonds also sidestep many of the ethical concerns associated with diamond mining, such as labour practices and funding conflict regions.

Value and Resale

  • Resale Value: Naturally mined diamonds typically hold better resale value compared to lab-grown diamonds, partly due to perceptions of rarity and traditional value. However, both types of diamonds can suffer depreciation once they leave the jeweller.

Choice and Availability

  • Designs and Availability: Both naturally mined and lab-grown diamonds are available in a wide range of cuts, colours, clarities, and carats. Lab-grown diamonds may offer more flexibility in terms of size and quality at a given price point due to their lower cost.

In summary, the choice between a normal engagement ring and a lab-grown engagement ring often comes down to personal values, budget, and preferences regarding environmental and ethical considerations. Both offer the timeless beauty and durability expected of diamonds, making them suitable for symbolising a lifelong commitment.
