Dalgleish Diamonds’ Bespoke Engagement Rings
Just like every piece of our bespoke jewellery, every customer is unique and so is the way we’ll collaborate. Email, Facebook, call or come into the store and make an appointment with one of our on-site jewellers so we can begin the process of creating a unique engagement piece for you. Or if you'd like to create the piece with your fiance-to-be we have a Devotion Package that may suit.
STEP 1: Getting to know each other
Your jewellery is an incredibly personal expression of who you are, and our custom consultation area is where we start getting to know you. We’ll talk styles and shapes, likes and dislikes, design and details. You’ll try on examples, we’ll sketch ideas, discuss stones and materials. You’ll leave fizzing!
STEP 2: Guesswork free design
Our workshop boasts industry-leading technology and we use it during the design phase to guarantee you are completely confident. After hand-sourcing the perfect stone, we create a 3D wax model of your piece that you can actually try on. Alterations, big or small, are simple to make until you’re absolutely in love with your piece.
STEP 3: Crafting perfection
Our four on-site jewellers (all registered members of Jewellers & Watchmakers of New Zealand Incorporated and the Goldsmiths Guild of New Zealand) will channel their passion, experience and technical mastery into your bespoke piece. We work with the best tools and technology available and, because we craft your piece by hand, we are able to give extra attention to the finer details and finishes as we strive for perfection.
STEP 4: A lifetime of love
Walk away with your bespoke jewellery in complete confidence. We stand behind our workmanship and give every piece we create a five-year warranty against manufacturing defects. To minimise wear and tear (not covered under our warranty) our Lifetime Care Guarantee offers a complimentary annual clean and check for all our bespoke pieces. We can also provide an independent valuation for insurance purposes and peace of mind.
Questions Our Customers Ask
A bespoke piece of jewellery is something designed and handcrafted especially for you (or that special someone in your life). Over the years we have perfected the process of creating a piece of custom-made fine jewellery so it is easy, accessible and enjoyable for every customer.
It’s better! In fact, when you commission a bespoke piece of jewellery from Dalgleish Diamonds, there is no compromise. Our highly skilled artisans use industry-leading technology and tools (laser welders, CAD programmes, 3D printing). We strive for perfection in every piece we create and produce details and finishes that machine manufactured jewellery is simply unable to replicate.

In only one meeting & edit, Bill nailed the design & I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result! It is unique, beautifully crafted & so very treasured. I would highly recommend this talented team for any boutique jewellery requirements."
"Paul and I want to extend heartfelt thanks to Bill, Lynnette and Bev for the wonderful in-house design service we received when crafting our perfect engagement and wedding rings. Every day I feel joy when I wear my pieces as not only are they breath-taking but uniquely me. This was achieved through the care and attention to detail we received throughout the process from the moment we first walked in the door. We also know our pieces will stand the test of time in design and quality. Thank you!"
"I have had the privilege of having several beautiful pieces made by Bill…but by far the most memorable is my eternity ring of pink and white diamonds. From the very first encounter when I explained my vision, Bill immediately began his magic to materialize my dream ring and created something so exquisite beyond my wildest dreams. I will always be eternally grateful!!"
