Fine Crafted - Just for You
Custom & Bespoke Engagement Rings
At Harry and Co Jewellery our signature engagement ring and wedding ring designs are crafted to order right here in Adelaide.
Each diamond or gemstone is sourced specifically for you and our diamond graders love to help guide you through this process.
An entirely personal experience, because you deserve an exceptional piece of jewellery, and an unforgettable experience.
Bespoke and customised pieces are at the essence of everything we are about because we all have different values and different elements that are important to us.
That’s why every piece of jewellery we sell is able to be customised. We have collections of engagement rings, wedding rings, earrings, necklaces etc and we pride ourselves on their meticulous design. However, the ability to be able to customise these pieces, to make them yours, is what makes us truly special.
Our collection of solitaire engagement rings, affectionately coined ‘The One’ collection, has been meticulously designed so that your centre stone appears to float on your finger and it has been created with just enough height to allow a wedding ring of your choosing to sit flush against it.
However - the all important centre stone – that is entirely your choosing.
Naturally mined diamonds, lab grown diamond, champagne diamonds, morganite, sapphire, the list goes on. The colour, the clarity of your diamond, all of which we help you choose.
We are experts in gemmology and diamond grading and love nothing more than helping people choose the perfect centre stone for them.
We provide consultations face-to-face or over Zoom to personally take you through the hand selection of your centre stone, offering advice and education along the way to ensure you make the right decision for your ring. Your budget, your lifestyle, your partner, your values are all considered as we guide you through what is a very enjoyable process.
One other emphasis of our business, aside from customising pieces, is our emphasis on quality. Each piece of jewellery we create is crafted in the highest quality and using premium materials.
All engagement and wedding rings are made with 14kt gold as their minimum standard, ensuring your stones are set in premium metal, with 18kt and Platinum options as well.
The base minimum for our diamond selection, is G colour and SI clarity. G colour and SI clarity ensures your diamonds will ALWAYS be white and without inclusions noticeable to the eye. They won’t lose their sparkle and fire when you take them out of premium lighting.
G colour and SI clarity minimum – we truly believe that the quality of all our diamond jewellery speaks for itself.
So browse our collections, find inspiration within, or bring inspired ideas to us, and let’s begin fine crafting a piece just for you.
Searching for the perfect engagement ring can be a life-changing experience that will live long in the memory. Undoubtedly, you're full of excitement about choosing the ring, but you probably have a lot of questions as well.
This is why we have compiled this guide.
Getting engaged is one of those things where there may be no time like the present. However, you shouldn't be hasty when choosing the engagement ring because this is a recipe for making mistakes.
Here at Harry & Co, we produce hand-crafted custom engagement rings in Adelaide with the aim of our customers walking away with a piece their bride-to-be will love, and this takes preparation.
There are thousands of years of history with engagement rings, and they remain a fundamental part of the bride's journey to betrothal. They are usually worn on the fourth finger of the left hand and tend to feature diamonds, and will sit alongside a complimentary wedding ring when the big day arrives.
Though diamonds are the tradition, non-conventional stones like sapphires and emeralds have become more popular in recent times.
You're about to embark on a huge adventure and deserve a lifetime of happiness with your future bride. If you have never bought a ring for your partner before, you need to understand that size is important. If the ring doesn't fit her finger when she says 'Yes' it could completely ruin the moment.
If you need help finding your partner's size, there are various options for you. You could measure yourself or try asking her best friend for a tip-off - however you get it, that measurement is of the utmost importance.
Choosing the style
Once you have the ring size, you're ready to start exploring your options. Style is everything when it comes to engagement rings, and Harry & Co have a range of ring styles and designs for you to choose from. Whether you already have a certain diamond shape in mind or know the stone style you're after, we can help.
What is a bridal set?
This refers to a complementary set of engagement and wedding rings. Both rings are exquisite on their own, but when the big day arrives and the two interlocking rings are brought together, you'll see that the full set is far greater than the sum of its parts.
What are solitaire engagement rings?
Solitaire engagement rings remain one of the most popular choices out there. They generally feature a signature diamond in luxurious settings that places the larger gemstone atop a band of smaller stones. The bigger the main stone is, the more breathtaking that brilliant sparkle will be.
What are halo engagement rings?
This is a type of ring where the chosen gemstone is encircled by the setting with smaller, round diamonds. The feature stone doesn't necessarily have to be a diamond but, if it is, you'll get a phenomenal sparkle when it catches the light.
Something special for a once-in-a-lifetime occasion
To this day, nothing says luxury more powerfully than diamonds. This is why they are such a popular choice for popping the big question. The luxury and intrinsic value of diamonds have made them the stone of choice for engagement rings for centuries. The gift of a shimmering diamond will make your engagement proposal all the more special for your bride-to-be.
If you have your heart set on diamonds, it's important to understand the shape options as there are many to explore:
- Brilliant Round
- Emerald Cut
Do your homework and look into all these different diamond shapes and cuts to decipher which will be the best fit for you and your partner.
Going a different way
If your special someone has a more unique style and isn't drawn to diamonds, there are many alternative options for you to consider. Here are some examples to choose from to help with your decision-making:
- Blue Zircon
These alternative stones bring a range of beautiful colours and cuts to the equation for something a bit different.
Buying your ring
Some of the questions in your mind will revolve around cost. How much should I pay for an engagement ring? What is considered 'expensive'?
The tradition is that you should spend three months' salary on the perfect engagement ring. Naturally, this amount will vary significantly between jobs, and many people now suggest spending one month's salary on the ring.
Forget those unwritten 'rules' regarding the amount you should pay and go with what feels right to you. Many people wouldn't want their partner to blow several months' salary on a ring - that extra money could be better spent on the wedding itself, and if they love you then they'll be happy that you're proposing.
If you find the ring of your dreams and it's slightly beyond your budget, you could consider taking out finance to spread the cost over a longer period. This option can be a way to get a ring without breaking the bank, but you should consider your decision very carefully.
