How to choose the perfect engagement ring?

If you want the proposal and engagement to be a secret, the best way to understand this is by talking to close family & friends who will give you a great idea of your bride-to-be’s personal style.

Also, looking through her jewellery box is another great way of understanding her style. Maybe take a few photographs to show your selected jeweller.

Once you have decided on a style, “borrow” one of your partner’s rings for sizing. Be sure to place it back where it exactly belongs!

When asking Waldemar Jewellers if more couples are choosing the ring together, he responded that over 70% of customers are just the partner making a secret proposal! Swwooonn….romance is still alive! Sydney Engagement Rings - Waldemar Jewellers

However, if you have a really strict deadline, Waldemar Jewellers will meet it. We are proud to know Sydney’s Best Wedding Jeweller has not missed a deadline in his entire profession as an expert jeweller.

The time also depends on how quickly you communicate as a client, as there will always be changes. 


What is the processes of a custom-designed ring?

When first meeting with Waldemar Jewellers, you will discuss different styles, diamond grading & quality, but most importantly educating you as a customer on the value and quality of different gemstones & diamonds.

During the first meeting, Mark will personally sketch your envisioned ring and will then create a realistic 3D design using advanced technology.

When choosing the stone, Mark emphasises on the importance of building the ring to the diamond or gemstone, as this will retain the ring’s value. 

Once you are happy with the 3D design, the ring will be crafted by Mark personally, presented in a beautiful box waiting to be opened by the love of your life.
