Hi Carl & Edward,

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your excellent Customer service (Carl) and brilliant craftsmanship & advice (Edward)!

I absolutely love my ring – the diamond, design and fit is everything I wanted!!

I have so many comments every day and I tell them exactly where and who did it!

I look forward to seeing you both in the next 8-10 months to get our wedding bands done.

Thank you,
Bianca Esposito

To Carl, Edward and Gina,

I never got a chance to sit and tell you all just how well everything turned out and how smooth the whole engagement ring process was, it’s just been so busy this year with my new job and wedding planning and all but here it goes.

When I started looking for a jeweller I had one main criteria in mind, I wanted a jeweller who would show me some artistic flair. I knew what my girl wanted but I needed the right person to convey that vision into a ring design. I was designing this ring as a surprise as you know, so this was super important.

When I came to see you guys, right from the get go I was shown the ACTUAL diamonds that I could purchase (no other jeweller had done this) and I was told everything up front so there were no surprises. This was a refreshing surprise but what was even better was what came after, the design process with Edward was so fluent. He basically got me to describe what my woman is like, and tell him what information I have already gathered about what she likes in a ring. Just like that we were away and Edward was hitting the nail right on the head with the designs he was suggesting to me.

I was still a little nervous, after all I was trusting a substantial amount of money for a product I won’t physically see until the end, but after seeing Edwards work and visualising what the ring would look like with my diamond I wasn’t scared, just excited.

When the day finally came when I held the ring box in my hand and looked at it with my own eyes I was gobsmacked, it was perfect. So much better than I could have ever dreamed.

On the 4th of February 2012 I planned a nice lunch out at Coogee beach and made sure the whole day was free for just the two of us. I used the cover of taking her out for her birthday so she didn’t suspect a thing. When the time finally came, I got down on one knee and popped the question the way I’d planned. It went off without a hitch; she couldn’t even answer from the tears rolling down her face. She absolutely loved the ring, and was gobsmacked by its uniqueness. I told her all about how I had been planning it from the November ’11 and all the work that has gone into it. She was over the moon that all this planning had been done to surprise her, but she is well worth it.

At present day it’s now June and we are well on the way to planning our big day in October this year. We are looking forward to a happy future together.

For anyone wondering whether I was paid to write this tribute or something like that, make no mistake, I am simply a very satisfied customer. I cannot speak more highly of Edward’s team. They are professional yet personal and for me it was a very stress free process even before the ring construction had begun. The simple fact is that once I saw Edward’s work and spoke to him directly about my specific ring, I knew all I had to do was plan the proposal day because the ring would be fantastic.

Anyone curious about the Certified Diamond Network or, anyone that would like a second opinion or, to ask a question about my experiences with Carl and Edward, feel free to ask one of the guys to put you in touch with me.

To the Certified Diamond Network team, thank you so much for making this experience very special, my wife-to-be will cherish her ring for the rest of our lives.

Thank you.

Hi Carl

Thank you! I am a very lucky girl. Now I have to do the hard thing and wait!

Thanks again for all of your help; I’m sure the finished product is going to be amazing. You’re advice has been impeccable and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with both yourself and Edward to complete the design! It has been a very memorable experience.

Let’s hope when Edwards gets the ring it gives him some inspiration to put it on my finger quick smart! Haha.

Look forward to designing the wedding rings with you both in the future!

Thanks again!


Hello Edward and Carl,

I apologise for how long it has taken me to send you this email. I have been meaning to contact you to let you know that I absolutely LOVE my ring!

It is everything I had hoped it would be and more. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my ideas and translating them into something so gorgeous and beautifully crafted.

Thanks again, and I am sure we will be in touch shortly to design our wedding bands.


Hi Gina & Edward,

I want to thank you both for making our experience of buying & designing my engagement & wedding rings and absolute pleasure. The finished piece was better than I could’ve ever imagined.

Thank you once again. We will recommend you to our family & friends.

Thank you

Charlene & Graeme

Hi Edward and Carl

We are back from our honeymoon!

I just thought we’d share a couple of pics with you of the special pieces (the third one you will see Tam a little teary eyed – which is when her mum delivered the jewellery to her on the day). Hopefully we will be able to catch up soon and tell you all about the day (and bring some other shots)!

In any case, the bridal pieces simply went amazing with Tam’s dress – elegant, unique but not overstated. Perfect.

Thanks again for all of your help in making our special day extra special.


Jakob And Tammy

Hi Gina and Edward,

Hope you both had a lovely long weekend.

Stephen and I just wanted to say a big thank you for everything. We absolutely love the ring and have spent the entire weekend showing it off. We have got more ooo’s, ah’s and wow’s than expected. We are just so happy with the finished product and we can’t keep our eyes off it.

Also thank you so much for helping us find such a beautiful diamond, and for being so patient with all our questions and moments of indecisiveness. The design is exactly what we wanted and Edward, your work is just so beautiful. We just can’t believe how perfectly it has turned out and it looks exactly like the design we brought to show you. We still can’t believe the size and quality of the diamond for the price we paid. We will definitely recommend others to use the Certified Diamond Network and we will definitely be back. Once again thank you so much.

Thanks again.

Kind Regards,


Edward & Carl,

I just wanted to drop you a note to share with you our weekend.

In short, we had a very romantic evening in the City and our Family joined us for a surprise dinner.

Now for the most exciting part… the all-important, Engagement Ring.

Lauren is beside herself with her new (and only) piece of jewellery. She has been smiling for the last three days (and while I like to think that I have a little bit to do with this, clearly the ring is a highlight).

From the time I initially enquired via email, to our consultations and then the final product you have both been accommodating, informative, consultative and non-confronting.

For me, you both added to the whole experience and removed any of the potential stress related to the purchase of the ring.

I would have ABSOLUTELY NO hesitation recommending you to anyone and invite you to use this email as a testimonial.

Both Lauren and I look forward to working with you in relation to our wedding bands and wish you both good health and happiness.

Thanks again.

Geoff And Lauren

Hi Carl,

It has taken me a while to write this because quite frankly my vocabulary was stunted at the word “awesome”!

Firstly, both Col and I would like to say a big thank you to you and Edward for what you have created for us. As you know we were referred to you, and from the moment we walked in we knew we had found our jeweller for life. Your level of service at every step of the way exceeded our expectations just as the final design of our ring did. I was nervous, as being that the design was a vision and knowing that Edward would create something unique, I did not really know what to expect.

When Colin saw the ring first, it was his gasp that made me realise that it was breath-taking – literally. When I opened my eyes to see this handcrafted labour of love I was speechless – for me to be speechless is amazing! I have had strangers approach me (in 3 continents) to ask me where they can get my ring, to be able to say that they can’t get it anywhere is a fantastic feeling. We have even had jewellers marvel at the craftsmanship and intricate design and then congratulate me on finding someone who had the vision and ability to create it! It is interesting to see a little bit of jealousy from everyone that they either weren’t able to make it or can’t get it in the stores.

I really don’t know how to say thank you enough to both of you – to know that I am wearing a unique piece of jewellery that is truly my personality and that can never be recreated is a fantastic feeling. To know that you both had the same amount of love and passion for this as we did, to come to you is awe inspiring.

Again, many many thanks for everything. We look forward to keeping the circle of referrals moving and returning to you for our next piece.


Mary & Colin
