Handmade wedding rings with recycled metals and Australian or recycled diamonds Let's see what the peeps are saying about Ethical Jewellery Australia… Thank you so much for my stunning engagement ring! We had a specific idea in mind that was not like anything we found in the shops and you have turned it into reality… and even more beautiful than we imagined! The whole process was so exciting, and a bit nerve wracking because we couldn’t show you a picture, but you expertly guided us through and interpreted our ideas perfectly. It was really important to us that the diamond and metal was ethically sourced and locally made so thank you for that as well; and it didn't even cost any more than a shop bought alternative! One of the nicest things about your service is that I felt totally comfortable expressing every niggle or worry and you listened and took these on board. We can’t thank you enough for a ring that will be cherished for the rest of our lives. -Jo and Mal from Brisbane I knew nothing about diamonds or jewellery and was quite nervous about the process of buying an engagement ring so it was wonderful that you were so willing and able to help. It was a joy to deal with someone who loves their job, as you obviously do. I especially appreciated the regular contact you maintained throughout the process and the way you helped me to be well-informed. I know I can refer my friends to you with confidence. As you know, Rosie said ‘Yes’ and she loves the ring. Thank you again for all your help. – Stuart from Mackay, Queensland Let's get to proposing… If it can be made, Ethical Jewellery Australia will make it for you — from mainstream to quirky and opulent to dainty. Their service is clearly awesome, and their rings are beautiful and made to last. Hell, you don't even need to buy a ring to get a "yes!" with Ethical Jewellery Australia.

Oh my gosh. This is so incredibly brilliant. This should change the way proposals are done, for the better! I really hope it catches on! 3 agree Reply Oh wow! The Promised Ring is really cool. I just picked out my engagement ring and let my fiance know what it was so he could buy it at his convenience lol, but this is a really cool thing for someone who wants a custom ring. The way it's presented is pretty snazzy too. Reply Those rings are so beautiful! 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
