Who To Trust For Advice When Buying A Diamond Engagement Ring?

Hands up who recommends and trusts Campbell Jewellers Dublin for Diamond Engagement Rings?
Recently over in the UK & Dubai two companies have been forced to into liquidation in the public interest for their part in a coloured diamond scam  IGL Labs UK Limited (IGL) and Diffraction Diamonds DMCC (Diffraction) after a hearing in the companies court.
The scam involved IGL which is based near Hatton Garden, providing certificates to Diffraction a company based in Jumeirah Lake Towers in Dubai. The diamonds were sold to the general public with massively over inflated prices.
IGL never even saw the diamonds they were 'certifying' and increased the actual grade level of the diamonds in order to the justify the massively over inflated price the public were conned into handing over.
No matter how much research a member of the public does before jumping in to buy a diamond engagement ring whether it is for a €500, €5,000, €20,000 or €200,000 ring they will never do more than scratch the surface of the world of diamonds, simply popping into multiple jewellery shops and walking away with the little business card with the price, colour, carat weight very minimal information and comparing that at home against the other 3 or 4 business cards from other jewellery shops and going on the web to look at stock photos of diamonds which seem amazing value does not make you an expert, in fact it will probably confuse you more, that is why you need to put your trust into a company that is long established in the City or town you are considering buying your diamond from. 
Ronan Campbell - Campbell Jewellers Managing Director has been buying and studying diamonds for over 17 years and loves nothing more than explaining to his clients far more than the simplistic "four c's", there are also many wonderful long established jewellers in Dublin City that have amazing reputations built up over years because their clients trust them to provide quality diamonds. There are also others who have themselves little or no real life experience or knowledge who seem to have woke up one day and thought, hey I'm going to sell diamonds. 
At Campbell Jewellers we only buy our diamonds from reputable sources, in many cases from families who for generations have cut and polished diamonds and who we can trust. 'It is trust that makes the diamond business work'.
We see diamonds each week coming into us for valuations bought across the world from Dubai to Grand Cayman with all sorts of dubious certification in regular cases the diamonds are of such poor quality we would never even offer them to a client in the first place. 
For a moment think about how awkward that conversation is for us when we have to explain to a loved up couple who have just returned from a whirlwind engagement all giddy and excited making plans for a wedding to find out they have been sold a dud with no recourse open to them because they actually got what they paid for, maybe the slick sales person glossed over the fact the diamond was artificially enhanced, maybe they just focused on the colour and ignored the poor symmetry, maybe they failed to explain the diamond is milky because of the level or type of fluorescence, the list is endless.
It is far more beneficial to a client to hand over the trust to someone like Ronan Campbell who studies every diamond we offer which is not just bought because it ticks the 4 c's boxes, but because it is a beautiful stone.
Just one of the IGL diamonds presented to us for inspection, this diamond is so poor in quality it really is worthless, the client said he trusted the website it was purchased on.

Where To Buy A Diamond Engagement Ring In Dublin?

At Campbell Jewellers Dublin We Bring The Diamond Market Direct To You.

Our In House Diamond Experts Travel To Antwerp & Further A Field Every Two Weeks To Find The Finest Diamonds At The Best Possible Prices.

We Study Each Diamond Chosen At Great Length And Compare It To Many More Diamonds Of Similar Size And "Spec" Which Guarantees We Only Select The Best Diamonds On Offer Which We Use In Our Beautiful Engagement Rings.

Buying a diamond engagement ring simply based on the 4 C's does not guarantee you will get a nice diamond or value for money, even a D colour diamond which many consider to be the best can be a poor diamond if it has a sub par symmetry or polish which many prospective diamond engagement ring shoppers may never of heard about.

We understand diamonds and the craft behind making the finest diamond rings, in our Dublin studio our goldsmiths craft the finest diamond rings for our clients in Ireland and throughout the world.  

The term certification is a very loose term used in the diamond business and can be very confusing for a diamond ring buyer, we will educate you on GIA Certified Diamonds, HRD Certified Diamonds and IGI Certified Diamonds explaining the difference between them all and why one is more expensive than the other, we will also educate you on the pitfalls of diamond certification and what to look out for.

Each week we value diamond engagement rings for insurance purposes purchased abroad or at home in Ireland which are accompanied by "Certs" or "Certification" some of these certs are literally not worth the paper they are printed on. 

So How does the process work? Simply pick up the phone and call 01-2600060 or email ronan@campbelljewellers.com to arrange an appointment, at this appointment Ronan Campbell our in house diamond expert will show you loose diamonds and finished diamond engagement rings to suit your budget and taste. You may find the ring of your dreams ready to go or we may create a bespoke diamond ring to suit your taste. 

Each week Ronan meets clients in our Donnybrook Dublin Showroom and the adventure starts with a simple, informal but very professional chat.

Yellow diamonds are extremely rare one in every 10,000 diamonds dug up from the ground is a yellow, they are available in a range of intensities from very light yellow to very intense, finding the right yellow diamond is much more time consuming than a typical white diamond but we have developed it into an art form. 

Ronan our in house diamond specialist, who himself is a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) graduate loves spending time searching the world through his trusted international contacts, from India, Hong Kong, USA & Europe to find the best GIA Certified yellow diamonds which our Master Goldsmiths then craft into truly unique diamond engagement rings.

Bespoke Diamond Engagement Ring Specialist - Campbell Jewellers

Campbell Jewellers Diamond Engagement Ring Specialists Dublin Ireland
Each week in our Donnybrook Village gallery we meet clients to discuss what it is they would love as their perfect engagement ring.
 
Here is one we created which was collected last week, the client wanted a slight art deco feel to it.
I think we have created a magnificent diamond engagement ring, our master goldsmith seemed to be quite happy with himself but more importantly our client was over the moon.
Campbell Jewellers Bespoke Platinum Diamond Ring
We spent a lot of time on the planning of this ring before we set out to make it by hand using platinum, crafted by one of the most skilled goldsmiths in Ireland.
Campbell Jewellers Round Brilliant Baguette Platinum Engagement Ring
We had the magnificent 2ct+ centre diamond in our stock ready to go, it was a very impressive perfectly white diamond cut to our exacting standards.
We used 6 perfectly shaped and matching baguette cut diamonds to flank the main round brilliant cut diamond and give us that art deco feel while not looking too "antique" as per the requirement of our client.
If you would like to discuss a possible diamond engagement ring with Ronan Campbell our in house diamond specialist we would be delighted to arrange an appointment you can call +353 1 2600060 or email ronan@campbelljewellers.com

The stone of the week: The dazzling tourmaline

Tourmaline’s Dazzling Range of Colours
Tourmaline, along with opal, is one of the official birthstones for October. 
Tourmalines are found almost all over the world. There are major deposits in Brazil, Sri Lanka and South and south-west Africa. In the 1500's Brazil a Spanish conqueror washed the dirt from a green tourmaline crystal, confusing the vibrant gem with emerald.
 It wasn't until the 1800's, scientists recognized tourmaline as an other mineral species. 
It's name is thought to be develop from the Sinhalese word, “turamali”, which means “stone with various colours” in reference to its extreme versatility.
Tourmaline considered to be one of today’s most versatile gemstones with a wide colour spectrum. Although it is best known in shades of green and red , it also can be in purple, yellow, blue, Pink or colourless.
The ability of this stone to appear like other gemstones led to some confusion.
Many gemstones in the Russian Crown jewels from the 17th Century once thought to be rubies are in fact tourmalines.  
 
Ancient legend says that tourmaline is found in all colours because it travelled along a rainbow and gathered all the the rainbow's colours.
Tourmaline is believed to strengthen the body and spirit, especially the nervous system, blood, and lymphs. It is also thought to inspire creativity and was used extensively as a tailsman by artists and writers.
We have crafted a gorgeous ring using a pink tourmaline have a peek below and click the image to go direct to the ring on our website!
