Words cannot describe the emotions that overwhelmed me when I opened the case and saw the ring that Dan at Polished Diamonds had made. $7,500 is a lot of money to entrust to anyone, especially someone I hadn’t met face to face! The ring is simply stunning, Service & workmanship nothing but CLASS!! Please contact me via email & I will telephone anyone who is needing confirmation regarding the integrity of Polished Diamonds
As I said to you on the phone today unbelivable !!

I have no hesitation in recommending Polished Diamonds. In typical Male fashion I had left the final order until the last minute and Dan really pulled out all the stops to make sure that I had the ring in time for our flight overseas. If you have looked at their website, then I would definitely suggest you give Dan a call. After talking with him for 15 minutes you will see the passion he has for this business and for diamonds. Further, after listening to him, you will know more about diamonds than 95% of the staff in other shops. After talking with Dan, I spent a lot of time looking at other shops to see what they could offer. It was obvious that there was no comparison in service, quality and price. From there, it was an easy decision to entrust what is a very important moment to him. The ring always draws heaps of positive comments and is unlike anything I have ever seen. Absolutely stunning!

Dan I just realised that I got so caught up with the proposal and the excitement and madness that followed that I forgot to give you feedback on the ring. It’s absolutely stunning – she loved it and we were very impressed. I’ve passed on “Polished Diamonds” as the creators of the ring to all those who have asked and will be sure to be referring you to my other friends when they make the move. The model you attached is indeed the engagement ring. Would love to see what the matching wedding ring would look like. Thanks and talk soon

I just received the rings and wanted to express my gratitude at the wonderful experience I have had dealing with Polished Diamonds. Your professionalism and attention to detail is rare, but it’s the personable and human interaction that really sets you apart. I never once felt like I was just another customer, I felt you really cared about my ideas and thoughts, and I completely trusted your judgment.
I loved the presentation. The inconspicuous white box surrounding your lovely ring box. Letting you know, there is something truly special hiding in the dark shiny wooden box. The rings themselves have exceeded all my expectations. I chose Polished Diamonds because I thought your website was classy and professional, your ring designs were stylish but understated at the same time, exuding class but never shouting too loud about it. The craftsmanship and attention to detail has to be applauded, dare I say, even outdoing the CAD images.
The diamonds sparkle, boy do they sparkle, even in normal lighting. I can’t take my eyes off them. And the rose gold bands with the platinum top are divine In a word, WOW!
Thank you so much I am A Very Happy Girl!!!!!!!.

Well if you’re reading this it must mean you’re getting ready to buy the loved one of your life a very special gift. In my case it was time for an engagement ring. Now I’ve been fishing around for quite some time, searching through shops, jewellery stores etc etc. Trying to find a ring or diamond that your loved one wants or likes can be very tricky and very expensive too. So I went online and had a search, eventually finding “Polished Diamonds”. Now knowing that it can be quite risky buying almost anything online I gave them a call to get some reassurance. I’m not highly qualified in diamond acquiring at all so I asked for some advice too. To my surprise, Polished Diamonds has been extremely helpful concerning what to look for in a diamond, ring and my budget. Before the purchase was finalised, I was sent a full set off detailed photographs and dimensions of my purchase, and it was exactly what I was searching for. When the order was confirmed, I was kept up to date on how the process of my engagement ring was going which made me feel very assured about my purchase. The ring was finished and delivered well within time and I’m totally satisfied with my purchase. I thank Dan and his team at Polished Diamonds for their help, advice and great service. Well done guys.

I dealt with Dan; the very first phone call he was wonderful, he explained everything about the process and the diamond, so I was assured I was getting great value. I had been researching diamonds for a few months and found Polished Diamonds to be by far the best. Thank you so much, Dan, for making this such a great experience. I will be calling back for my wedding and eternity ring.

Polished Diamonds made designing and buying an engagement ring very easy. The information and advice given over the phone and by email was far superior to any retail store I contacted. The CAD modelling gives a clear image of exactly how the finished ring looks. Overall fantastic friendly service, keeping me informed of the progress of the ring through all of the production stages. Everyone who sees the engagement ring really likes it and are impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship. We would not hesitate to use Polished Diamonds again to make our wedding bands.

Excellent customer service and product range. Will definitely buy again, am absolutely delighted with my diamond.

As a medical doctor, I am used to noticing fine details, and when I started looking for rings at retail jewellery stores, I soon realised the diamonds didn’t hold up to close scrutiny. It didn’t take much to notice the flaws, and the prices were steep. On discovering Polished Diamonds, I found that far superior diamonds could be obtained for a similar price. I was initially a little nervous about doing business online, but with a little research I was convinced they sounded legitimate. On calling Dan it was immediately obvious that he was the real deal, as he talked far more openly and knowledgeably about what makes a good diamond than any of the sales people in the regular stores. I had a simple but stunning diamond ring designed, and my new fiance receives no end of comments about it. In fact she went to a retail store the other day, and said the man just about fainted with excitement on examining her engagement ring. This is a ring that is not cheap, but not wildly expensive either. The value from Polished Diamonds is amazing. I was absolutely thrilled with the service I received from Dan, and would never consider going anywhere else. He was easily accessible throughout all stages of the ring making process, had great ideas, and was very discreet. If you want a quality diamond, Polished Diamonds is the place for you. If you are happy with a regular diamond, and just want it a lot cheaper than retail, Polished Diamonds is also the place for you. I will be recommending them to everyone I know who is in the market for a ring, and am more than happy to answer any questions anyone might have as they are considering their options for a ring purchase. Thanks again! Steve

Thanks so much for my gorge anniversary ring, I just love it. I’m having a Friday wine and enjoying the view from my sparkly diamonds 🙂 lol, thank you for all you help, will definitely be recommending Polished Diamonds but I’m sure my new ring will do all the advertising!

Thanks for the all the work you have done on my various rings. I appreciate they have not been your most lucrative commissions but you have never treated them as such. My thanks are particularly for restoring my grandmothers art deco onyx ring. You clearly discussed the various options and prices, the end result has been absolutely fabulous and the compliments received on the ring are on-going. I have had no trouble in recommending you to anyone for either new, repaired or restored works. Hope to do further business with you in the future. Thanks again. Helen

Hi Dan, just to let you know my fiance Jessica collected the ring smoothly on Saturday. She finds it brilliant and loves it very much. Thank you once again for a most pleasant journey on our engagement ring search

The engagement ring is stunning. I’m so amazed! My partner still hasn’t seen it and has no idea I have it, so it should be a total surprise when I decide to bring it out. I still haven’t quite gotten over how beautiful it is!!!!

I know I’ve said it before but thank you so much for all your assistance in the design process and turn-around of the ring prior to my trip; the service was absolute quality and so was the manufacturing of the ring. I won’t hesitate to recommend Polished Diamonds to friends and family.

Hi Dan, I picked up the ring, and it is now firmly planted on my finger; thanks again for all you did! I absolutely love it.

Hi Dan, I’ve attached some photos from our wedding day, shots of the rings.
Thanks for all your help in organising both engagement and wedding rings. We had a great day and the rings looked amazing! Thanks again Todd

Hi Dan got the ring and she is delighted with it; so looks like ill be hitting you up again for a wedding band in the near future hopefully 2015. just a note to say I’m delighted with the quality of the ring and will be recommending you to all my friends cheers and happy new year Eoghan

Hey mate just messaging you to say a big thanks for all your help. everything went smoothly and she said yes! Looking forward to catching up in the near future to discuss wedding bands. I’ve attached a picture for you to check out of the ring in Fiji – it looks awesome and we are thrilled.

I managed to stumble across Polished Diamonds online while looking for rings. Through the entire process, Dan has been more than helpful, from helping choose the best diamond for the setting to the end product. I am very happy with the final result, and it looks absolutely amazing! Exactly like the CAD drawing produced by Dan and his team. Thanks again for the help and for making this process so easy for me! I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Hi Dan. Just a quick email to let you my ring arrived and its beautiful. I love it. It’s exactly what I wanted and I’d recommend Polished Diamonds to anyone looking for value and quality. Thanks again. Have a great weekend. Cheers Kate

“Hi Dan, what a surprise – our engagement ring and wedding bands arrived on Monday, and we picked them up yesterday. You weren’t wrong – they were super speedy!
The finished products are just beautiful!!!! Never could we have imagined that we would be able to have such gorgeous rings. I can’t thank you enough for all of your and your teams hard work and outstanding service- I know we were fussy!!!
We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone who will listen for years to come, and I’m sure we’ll be back for more in the future.
Sarah & Michael

Hi Dan, just a note to thank you for the help you gave during my engagement ring making decisions. It was great to talk to someone who has true passion for his product and with a depth of knowledge of jewellery that you have. Not just in the design but also the manufacture, types of materials that can be used, diamond settings, colours, sizing, etc. and also the understanding of the significance of the ring, there was nothing you missed out. My suggestions made you realise that I wanted something unique, not a production-run ring, and that was important to me. As we discussed the design of the ring, visiting many re-inventions along the way, I realised that you take on board the customers requirements and you do not push your thoughts into the design. If the designs were possible but flawed in some way, you talked to me about it, not only regarding the flaw but also the reason why it was not maybe a good idea to use that design in that ring.
One of my thoughts you discussed with your ring manufacturer and came back to me with a reason not to do it, not because of the cost or the difficulty in manufacture but because the design the ring would not look correct and you would see more of the multiple joins than the ring itself. Im sure you could have just said Yes we can do that and I would have ended up with a ring I would have been disappointed with. It seemed to me that your only goal in the process was to have a happy customer when the ring is complete.
You never rushed me into making a decision. The cost was always up-front – nothing was hidden from the process. The final ring came in on my budget and looks, in my opinion, spectacular.
Even the presentation of the ring in the ring-box has given a new-look. Instead of getting a box that the ring is pushed into, and you can only see the head of the ring, the ring is clipped into the box, and you can see the whole ring.
I can honestly say it has been a very pleasurable experience doing business with you, and I am very happy with the end result – and so is my (now) fiance. She cannot stop showing the ring to friends and work colleagues with the tale of how unique the ring is, how flawless the diamond is, how it was designed, etc, etc. It has got very positive remarks and made a lot of people think twice about the purchasing of a production ring.
I can only hope that this word of mouth advertising brings you more success in the future, and I wish you every success with your business.
Regards Colin

Hey Dan, The diamond ring was delivered today and it looks absolutely amazing. Just want to say thanks for all your help and top class service once again AAA+ Regards Mabel

I started the enormous task of an online search for a jeweller to make an engagement ring. I was overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. I didn’t know a think about all the C’s or weight etc. Polished Diamonds website stood out so I sent an enquiry. To my surprise I got a phone call from Dan Joines who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my questions. Dan talked me through everything I needed to know and within no time had a CAD design ready for me to view. Like many brides (I hope) I changed my design and budget numerous times. Dan continued to be extremely patient with me. When I decided on the final design I gave Dan and his team very limited time to make and deliver and he did it without any hesitation. I am absolutely over the moon with ring. Thank you so much Dan for delivering such outstanding customer service and a superb piece of jewellery that I shall treasure forever. I look forward to having everything else I ever want or need made by you.

Hi Dan, thank you for the gorgeous ring. It arrived early last Wednesday. I love it and will be proud to be wearing it for the rest of my life. It has truly been a pleasure doing business with you.

Dan & Team – I would just like to thank Polished Diamonds for designing & making the engagement ring of my fiances dream. As I work in the trade industry and am on site most of the time & also work overtime and weekends, I knew it would be a difficult task to get a ring without my girlfriend suspecting something. Luckily for me Polished Diamonds was there to help me. As I only had a picture to go by, I explained everything to Dan who got everything perfect and even could send me the CAD drawings of what the ring would look like. The whole process was easy and Dan always kept me well informed as to the process which I very much appreciated. Overall fantastic service and would definitely recommend PD!
Thanks a million Quantin

After receiving some valuable advice from Dan I purchased a custom made engagement ring set in Platinum. I was keep updated throughout the manufacturing process and received the ring a week later. When I first opened the display box it was immediately obvious that the craftsmanship was far superior from the rings I had viewed at various high end retail stores (which were up to 50% more expensive). My fiance is so happy with her ring especially because it was custom made and one of a kind. I was so impressed with the service of Polished Diamonds that I ordered a set of wedding rings which I am very happy with. My ring was slightly tight and Dan offered to re size it free of charge. I recommend Polished Diamonds to anyone who wants the best value for money, an outstanding product and unparalleled service.
Regards Luke.

Just to say a BIG THANK YOU again for designing and making the stunning engagement ring.
In less than 2 weeks you took a design, thoroughly trawled the world to secure the perfect diamond, enhanced the design with your artisan touch, produced the ring and delivered it within stringent budget constraints whilst maintaining frequent and professional customer interface.
We are receiving countless compliments about the ring, its intricacies and design detail. With much pleasure we refer intrigued people to yourself and the Polished Diamonds website, hopefully some of these leads will transform into sales for you!
Thank you so much, we will definitely return to you to design our wedding rings.
We look forward to seeing you in the near future.
Kind regards, S & J”

Dear Dan,
You have just made me a very popular person. The tanzanite and diamond ring is stunning and will, I am sure, be an outstanding hit. The entire process – from design, through construction to completion – has been a pleasurable experience. Being able to observe the design development via your unique CAD technology was a revelation. I have never been happier with a finished piece of jewellery than I am with this ring which is the product of superb craftsmanship. You will definitely be seeing me again.
Warm regards, Brian Cowley.

I can tell you this;
Dan, dealing with you has been nothing but sensational. When you helped create my engagement ring you gave me all the information and knowledge I needed, you also worked with me to ensure I got the ring I wanted within our budget. You made sure the design would allow for my wedding band and eternity ring (something I had not considered) You kept me informed the whole process and most importantly, my ring arrived in time.
I look at my ring constantly and fall in love over and over again. The quality of the diamonds are exceptional, people often comment on how lovely my ring looks.
There was no hesitation when coming back for my diamond wedding ring and there won’t be when I order my eternity ring. You are the best!

Just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for the service I received from you and your team. I appreciate that you didn’t have a huge time frame to work with, but as promised, my chosen ring was waiting for me at the Airport on my departure last month.
Despite seeing several CAD drawings of my chosen design, I had to sneak a peak at the ring at the airport before stashing it in my bag, and I couldn’t have been happier with the design. You did a great job in selecting the stone – it was a little bigger than I imagined – not that that is a problem! – the ring looks perfect.
The best bit however is that my girlfriend (now fiancee!), absolutely adores the ring. She tells me she has never seen another ring like it, and that she couldn’t have chosen a better design herself. Phew! The size is perfect too, and despite her concerns that it might somehow come off her finger, we managed to do all sorts of adventure activities on our trip like quad biking, snorkeling and parasailing without a worry. The engagement really was the perfect start to our holiday! Thanks once again, Cheers Tom
P.S. I will be in touch at a later date to organize a matching wedding band!

Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!!!!!
I love my ring, it is AMAZING!!! You are a legend, Im soooo glad I found you online, your work is impecable. I cant wait to show my work colleagues, everyone has been waiting to see the finished product. Yaaaayyy – going to get my nails done now.
Thanks again Dan, it has been a pleasure dealing with you. Love it love it love it!

Hiya, you are not wrong the ring does look awesome. I can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you have spent with me through this process. This ring is far superior to anything that I have bought from the local jewellery store. The way that the light reflects is amazing, it is a truly spectacular ring. A big thanks to you and your team for creating this brilliant piece of jewellery. I will be sure to use you for any future purposes and have already passed your brochure and card around the office with a glowing review of the process.
If you would like me to write something more formal as a reference for your website then let me know as I would gladly oblige.

Thanks Dan for such an excellent service. Dealing with you was easy and I will have no hesitation in telling anyone interested in purchasing a ring to not bother using anyone else (have already told people). Planning a ring as a surprise for my wife it was important to me that she didnt find out. When we collected the ring at the airport she was extremely surprised and it got the holiday off to a flyer. You will be happy to know also that the woman at the collection point is also a fan of your work. The ring itself is exactly what I had envisaged and exactly what my wife had been looking for for some time. Thanks again Dan. PauL.

Thank you for all the hard work you put into the diamond ring, it’s amazing and we cant wait to show if off.

I wanted to come back to you and thank you for the ring. My girlfriend (now fiance) was very surprised and is very happy. I’m glad I spent some time researching the individual diamonds on your website and making the changes with you to the ring until it was right.
Thanks again and we’ll be in touch come Wedding time.

I picked up the ring yesterday, and it looks fantastic. Thank you very much.

I am sorry for not writing earlier to thank you for the amazing engagement ring you made for me! My fiance Mike said you were just wonderful when he was organising the ring. Thank you for making such a beautiful ring, I’ve now been wearing it for 3 weeks and still can’t stop looking at my hand!! We will Definetly be getting in touch about wedding rings, 🙂

Hey Dan. I received the ring yesterday and it looks awesome! Thank you so much for your hard work! I wouldn’t have a problem recommending you to others as I’m really happy with it.
Thanks again – Chris

Hi Dan, I would just like to thank you for the AWESOME ring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your service and workmanship is excellent, and I can’t thank you enough. Wow, it is super shiny and everyone that sees it absolutely loves it. When I presented it to my girlfriend, she was completely overwhelmed and we are now happily engaged. I will most definitely order wedding bands from you as well. I looked at lots of rings at many jewellers before coming across your website, and I dont think any of them would have given such good service and quality.
Kind regards, Michael

Hi Dan, It arrived a day earlier than expected! Thanks so much. The presentation is immaculate and a work of art in itself, and the ring is just beautiful; Thanks Shona

Hi Dan, would just like to thank you for the beautiful ring! Tracey is absolutely over the moon and it was exactly what she was looking for.. You have done a fantastic job. We will touch base when we are ready to discuss our wedding rings. Thanks again, Rick.

Hi Dan, I’ve just returned from holiday and wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the gorgeous engagement ring you have made for me, I LOVE IT!!
Your service has been amazing and I will be recommending Polished Diamonds to my friends.
We’ll also be in touch for our wedding bands, Thanks again – Trina

Hi Dan, we received the ring last night and it is fantastic. We are both very pleased with how it turned out and want to thank you for all your hard work putting it together.

Found Polished Diamonds to be exceptional value and very high quality. We had an antique design in mind and using two family diamonds, we then purchased a 1.00ct cushion cut diamond and incorported these into our unique design. We were able to check the proportion of the ring using the CAD modeling and 3D graphics and once the design was perfect the blueprint was produced in Platinum. The finished result was identical to the CAD that we previewed and very very sparkly. If you want a high quality diamond ring you must speak to the team at Polished Diamonds, we highly recommend them AAA+.

Thanks very much for the effort taken into making the diamond necklace. You have made the whole process very easy and stress free, and I really appreciated the fact you kept me informed of progress during the process. The extra effort you took in getting the job done on time (in fact earlier than agreed) was greatly appreciated. The finished product looks fantastic and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any client looking for quality handcrafted jewellery.

Picked up ring at Auckland airport last week thanks. Designing, selecting and finally buying a ring though Polished Diamonds has been a very easy process which has resulted in a fantastic piece of jewellery. For me the experience was just as important as the end result and staff at Polished Diamonds ensured that my expectations have been exceeded all the way through. The internet may seem a strange way to buy a piece of high quality jewellery but I can confidently recommend Dan and his team to make sure you get exactly what you are after. Thanks

I just wanted to let you know that our rings arrived safe and sound on Friday afternoon. Thank you so much for your hard work, both the wedding bands are absolutely amazing, we are so happy with them, you have done a great job. Louise’s wedding band looks fantastic with her engagement ring. We’ll be sure to send you some professional photos of the rings once we have them. Cheer

The cushion cut diamond ring in platinum is just amazing! It looks very elegant, and the craftsmanship is superb! You kept me informed all the way through and were very patient, answering all my questions. I now think of my ring as like the phoenix (of surpassing beauty and quality) rising from the ashes! I have and will continue to recommend you to all my friends and family. Thank you so much.

I approached Polished Diamonds with an idea and concept for an engagement ring. Dan not only helped me put together the final product by taking his time and showing many options until I was satisfied, he also met tight timelines and helped urgently produce my ring. He treated me with the up most respect as a client and his CADD drawings are spot on. I would highly recommend his services to everyone as he will be my first port of call for jewellery in the future.

Just like to say thanks again, mate all went off well with the ring she loved it can’t thank you enough for your prompt service. Have told everyone, so I hope you get a few more customers your way. If you’re ever up this way, drop me a line, and I’ll buy you that beer. Cheers, mate thanks again!

I would like to personally thank Dan for all his time and patience he has given me to come up with the perfect Diamond and making it into the perfect ring. Your CAD system is very precise and shows how the final piece will look with the dimensions and different angles. Polished Diamonds would have to be the best website in the country (New Zealand) for searching across such a large range of diamonds, as you can choose whatever you like and narrow down your search within budget. Once you find something just give Dan a call and he will follow up and get back to you quickly with all the finer details. I would recommend Polished Diamonds to any friends and family and will be seeing Dan in the future for a matching wedding ring. It was also very assuring being able to meet you face to face in your office which is based in Christchurch, so dont go anywhere else go Polished Diamonds!

Another satisfied customer in every way!! Thoroughly professional service from start to finish, always called back if they were not available to speak at the time, a great price, and a stunning product. would definitely recommend Polished Diamonds to any one looking for a personal service and a unique purchase. Will definitely be looking to deal with you again in the future. Regards D.H.

Thank you very much for the engagement ring. Polished Diamonds have done a fantastic job, and I am extremely proud to show it off on my new fiances hand. It looks absolutely stunning. I have to admit at first, I was a bit sceptical about dealing with a jeweller so far away (I’m in Auckland), but the process was flawless, and the communication both by email and phone were excellent. The level of service, care, and commitment from Polished Diamonds exceeded my expectations and I am more than satisfied with the results. The ring and diamond look even better than the 3D CAD images that were sent to me prior to creating the ring. The price of the diamond and the ring are highly competitive, which is surprising considering the superior level of quality provided. I will highly recommend Polished Diamonds to anyone. Thanks for a job well done, from a very satisfied client.

I was clueless and worried when I started looking for an Engagement ring to propose with. Luckily, I stumbled onto a piece of old news article about Polished Diamonds. I played around with their website to start with, the procedure outlined on the website was already pretty clear, but I thought I would still give them a call to check how he sounded. I was greeted with a friendly male voice (believe me, it was easier talking to a guy), he explained every single detail from the 4 Cs to how to clean your diamond ring whilst explaining the processes related to purchasing a ring; needless to say, I was extremely impressed. The purchase went ahead with efficiency, precision and, most importantly, progress updates. I cant stress how much of a relief it is to receive a progress report on how your ring is going at each stage; you know that someone is looking after you.
It was a logistical challenge on the day of proposal, I had to be stealthy. First, I whisked my girlfriend onto a plane to Sydney, collecting the ring which Dan has already disguised and sent to the airport. Got to the hotel and proposed right there in the hotel room. She LOVED it!! Polished Diamonds, thank you very much, a personal thanks to Dan who had to be probably the best person to ease the anxiety with such an important purchase. I would recommend Polished Diamonds to anyone

Just confirming I received my ring today.It is absolutely fabulous!! Thanks very much – I haven’t been ‘out and about’ today but I am sure it will be noticed when I do. I will be very happy to pass on your cards to anyone interested.
Cheers and best wishes.

Meeting someone I felt I could spend the rest of my life with took a long search, and when it came to proposing, there was no way a trip to the local jewellery store was going to cut it. There’s always designer jewellery of course, but I never came across anything with the kind of simple elegance I prefer.. avant garde pieces date too quickly, and I wanted something that would look as good today as it will in fifty, or one hundred years. As a designer myself I wanted something that would perfectly suit my fiance. The freedom of being able to design a ring to my own specifications was really important, and the Polished Diamonds team were able to take a few simple sketches I made and generate quality CAD images. From here, via a few tweaks made over the phone, a really beautiful ring was crafted. The entire process, from choosing metal and a stone (complete with detailed gem reports I could peruse at my leisure) was made so simple, and the freedom of being able to direct the work via phone and email, without the hassle of cross-town trips during work hours, took all the drama and the stress out of the process. The team made the entire experience simple and enjoyable. Their relaxed, straight-up style, devoid of unnecessary pomp or formality, made dealing with them a real pleasure. The final product is absolutely beautiful; my fiance adores it and it has been universally admired by everyone that has seen it. Well done Dan and the team, love your work. I would definitely shop with you again, and I categorically recommend you to everyone and anyone who is considering an engagement ring. Cheers

I found Polished Diamonds while searching for ring designs on the net. I found a great ring style on the website, and the many, many glowing testimonies for Dan and the Polished Diamonds team made up my mind to get in contact. I found Dan incredibly helpful in a knowledgeable and non-pushy way, and he found the perfect diamond for us. My fiance is incredibly happy with her ring and can’t stop looking at it, and all our friends and family are forever complimenting her on it. Definitely will be getting the wedding rings through Polished Diamonds as well! Thanks again.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping Craig and I design my engagement ring. Craig gave the ring to me recently, and it is absolutely stunning!!! I am so happy with the design, and I have had so many envious compliments!!! I wanted to say how much I appreciated all the time and effort you took when helping us get the design we were after. I was so grateful for your advice and expertise and for keeping us updated on the progress of the ring. Thanks again for all your patience (with my continued changes, questions and general nervousness), invaluable advice and for helping create a uniquely stunning engagement ring. I will email you soon to get an idea of costs for a matching wedding band. Thank you again, Maria and Craig

It brought tears to her eyes when she opened the box! Perfect, amazing, stunning! Dan with his fabulous CAD programme, put all our worries regarding the design process and purchasing online, at ease. We will definitely be returning to Polished Diamonds to complete the set. We we’re absolutely thrilled with the quality of the service and product, the value for money and most of all the fact that no one else in the world has a ring that is exactly the same as the one we commissioned from Polished Diamonds. Thank you so much Dan and the team, you guys are awesome.

There is no doubt – buying an engagement ring is one of the most important decisions any man will ever make. Like most of us it would seem, I spent quite some time looking through rings in high street shops and learning exactly what constituted a quality stone. To be fair, I was horrified by some of the pricing out there and have always had an attitude that if you can bypass the middle man who adds questionable value, then you most certainly should. With that in mind and armed with some education, I searched the internet looking for a reputable online dealer. As many before me have mentioned in their testimonials, this is a harrowing process. The amount of money most of us are spending means that this is a nervous experience and one that you undertake with a significant amount of trepidation. Let me say, at the age of 38 years old and with 20+ years behind me in service orientated backgrounds, if you can find a more accommodating, trustworthy and abjectly honourable person to deal with than Dan at Polished Diamonds, then you will have done extremely well. Personally I couldn’t have been more impressed. A database of over 33,000 GIA diamonds structured in a simple search engine that means you decide colour, cut, clarity, size, polish etc You get consulted and reassured at every step along the way, and the result was outstanding. Honestly, I’m doing Dan a disservice calling the result outstanding but adjectives aren’t my strong point. Suffice to say the girl was over the moon and as any male in a relationship will tell you happy wife = happy life! We chose a .90 carat solitaire with VS1 clarity, with excellent polish, symmetry and cut. The landed price from Dan including 18ct white gold ring designed to her preferences was a bargain and the quality workmanship was stunning. The same stone and ring in the aforementioned shops would have to have been ordered in and would have cost me twice as much without the quality enough said. Dan, you are a legend and quite simply anyone I can tell about your organisation will be hearing about it ad nauseum. Kind regards.

Once again, thanks for the nice work done on the wedding ring it matches the engagement ring perfectly. Carol absolutely loved it. Many thanks.

I would highly recommend Polished Diamonds to anyone who was thinking about purchasing a diamond ring. Dan upheld every promise he made and even managed to exceed my expectations. I received great advice, great customer service, it arrived sooner than expected and was exactly what I was looking for. She LOVES it. Thanks Dan.

Thank you very much, the ring is exactly what I wanted and arrived last Friday with plenty of time to spare.Really looking forward to the big day on Saturday and just wanted to flick you a quick email to thank you once again for the excellent service. It has been a pleasure dealing with you for both my engagement and wedding rings and we will definitely be recommending you to friends and family. Kind regards.

Thank you SO much, Dan for producing the most amazing engagement ring I could ever have hoped for (and afforded)!! To be honest, I was very nervous purchasing an expensive ring online and without ever seeing it first, but that is what made it so much fun! I actually enjoyed the whole process! As soon as I spoke to you Dan, I knew I could trust you. You are so passionate about what you do, and it shows! The ring is amazing!! Flawless, and absolutely perfect!! My fiance gets compliments on her ring at least twice a week! I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thanks again Dan, we’ll talk soon about wedding rings 🙂

After getting frustrated looking for a ring in the usual retail outlets I came across the Polished Diamonds website. I’m very glad I did – their prices were much lower than the retailers, even for the custom designed ring I came to buy. More importantly though, both the diamond and setting I chose exceeded my expectations but more importantly, my fiance’s. She loves the ring and the comments she gets from her friends. Don’t let it be a question of business legitimacy – Polished Diamonds definitely do exist in more than just the web site and are very professional. Many thanks.

Karyn collected the ring on Friday and arrived home last night with it. I (we) are very happy with the ring. The service and advice from yourself was excellent and I thank you for that. As stated I did shop around before ordering the ring from Polished Diamonds. Choosing to deal with you and Polished Diamonds was a considered and certainly the correct decision.

I received the ring this afternoon and I just want to say a big thank you – it looks fantastic! I absolutely love it and recommend anyone to Polished Diamonds – 1st class and very sparkly. Thanks again.

Thanks for the perfect re-sizing of my ring! Came back beautiful, clean and polished looks new again! As promised, here is my testimonial for the website, cannot stop raving about PD to everyone! FANTASTIC BRILLIANT QUALITY! Do not hesitate to purchase your life-time investment with Dan at Polished Diamonds. Being at the receiving end of a proposal and a gorgeous engagement ring, I can tell you that I was completely blown away with the clarity, cut & quality of the diamond. Beats any that I have seen at the retail shops in town and for an affordable price (so I’m told!). It was such a relief that my now-husband had chosen Dan to work with in designing and creating a one-off piece that suits me to a tee, with trusted quality workmanship. It is the envy of many family and friends. You’d think that would be enough to make a woman happy but Dan also provided GREAT aftercare service. He was very reassuring with details regarding my ring and what needed to be done as I needed it to be re-sized. He did a perfect job, polished up everything to look new again! It has been a pleasure to deal with Polished Diamonds online and via phone from start to finish! I highly recommend Dan and will continue to spread the news about this great workshop!

I amOur company, Silver Stone Jewellery, has now bought diamonds from Polished Diamonds on several occasions and have been delighted and thrilled with the fabulous service we have received and the diamonds have been absolutely stunning. The first occasion was when a dear client of ours wanted a very special ring for her 60th birthday 3 x 3/4 c diamonds she has 3 daughters and wanted one diamond to symbolize each daughter. Dan tracked down 3 stunning matching gorgeous diamonds very quickly enabling us to get back to our client with a great quote and win the job. She was delighted with the ring and receives compliments on a daily basis the sparkle is just unbelievable. As jewellers ourselves it is vital that we deal with someone whose knowledge and integrity are unquestionable and certainly Polished Diamonds fitted the bill and are so friendly and approachable and very easy to deal with. Another occasion was even more important my gorgeous niece got engaged! Her fiance gave her a $20 bling ring to do the ‘on the knees job’ as he knew that she would want us to do the ring for her so a couple of days after the engagement they came to us and told us what they wanted we immediately contacted Dan and Polished Diamonds who was on holiday at the time however, he still took the time to contact us and start the process. The end result is that he tracked down a diamond that will surpass my nieces expectations and got us a diamond with which we can create the ring of a lifetime for my niece. The confidence that the GIA diamond reports give cannot be underestimated. As well as sorting this diamond for us, Dan also sorted out some small diamonds to go in a ring that my jeweller husband is creating for me yippee! Thanks Dan, a pleasure to deal with you and we will be back in the very near future for more orders.
