Midas Jewellers

Location: Westfield Bondi Junction, Westfield Miranda and Westfield Parramatta

Customer Rating: 5 Stars

With over 35 years of experience in the industry, Midas Jewellers is an established name in Sydney’s jewelry scene. The company has three prime locations in Westfield Bondi Junction, Westfield Miranda and Westfield Parramatta, with an onsite jeweller and workshop at each store.

Midas Jewellers specialise in custom design engagement rings and wedding bands, making them an excellent option if you’re after a bespoke engagement ring. Starting with a private appointment, the team will create a 3D CAD drawing to show a 360-degree view of your custom piece of jewellery before proceeding with the order. That way, you can be sure you know what you’re getting before you commit.

At Midas, you’ll also find a wide selection of jewellery, including stylish bracelets, gemstone rings and more brooches to name just a few, as well as hand-selected loose diamonds.

We liked the quality of the website and the amount of information for jewellery lovers. While you can’t purchase online, the site gives you insight into the extensive options they have on offer. 

Raffini Jewellers

Location: 6/155 King St, Sydney NSW 2000

Customer rating: 5 stars

This family business prides themselves on creating high-quality custom-made jewelry at reasonable prices.

Browse their website and you will encounter an impressive collection of engagement and wedding rings. The store offers diamonds, gemstones and a variety of other options.

Their custom service is also excellent. Many customers claim that the patience, knowledgeableness, skill and quality of work at Raffini is exceptional. Their price is also reasonable and the work quick with excellent service.

Although the website looks dated and may not be appealing, it gives you a clear idea as to what Raffini offers, with good descriptions of the items and prices included.

Armans Fine Jewellery

Location: 10/80 Castlereagh St, Sydney NSW 2000

Customer rating: 5 stars

Arman’s is highly respected in the Sydney jewelry scene and has been around for over 30 years. It’s a great place to start your engagement ring search in Sydney.

At Armans, you can either decide to go with one of their pre-made engagement rings, or you can design your own. They have a range of loose diamonds to choose from and a nice selection of modern engagement ring settings and styles. If you find all this overwhelming, they even have a diamond expert on board whom you can consult to ask all your questions.

If you are having your ring custom-made, the designing team at Arman’s will work with you to create a unique, custom made piece. They ensure that each ring is different and exactly what the customer ordered.

The company prides itself on excellent quality and stand by their products. What we love about Armans is the passion they have for their craft, high quality, after sales service and excellent customer care.

Affinity Diamonds

Location: 10/74 Castlereagh St, Sydney NSW 2000

Customer rating: 4.9 stars

Located on Castlereagh street, Affinity Diamonds is an Australian owned family business that operates in the heart of the city of Sydney.

Affinity Diamonds offers one-on-one service as they assist you in creating your ideal engagement ring. They are known for their personalized service and will ensure that you receive exactly what you are after. They always try to accommodate your budget without compromising on quality and work closely with the customer.

When browsing on the Affinity Diamonds, we found the inventory to be somewhat limited and the website not user-friendly. Having said that, we are sure that if you are after a custom made ring, you will have a lot of options and be able to bring your ideal ring to life.

One other thing.

You don’t have to be in Sydney to buy from Affinity Diamonds. They will assist you wherever you are, through emails and phone calls. Feel free to explore the sight and maybe grab some of the fine jewelry advertised there!

Cerrone

Location: 77 Castlereagh Street Sydney and 14 Martin Place Sydney

Customer rating: 4.5 stars

Cerrone  is a luxury-business and it shows! From the elegant and classy website to the beautiful showrooms in Sydney and Melbourne, this jewelry retailer is all about class.

While Cerrone’s main focus is on precious gemstones, they are also known for their excellence in design, craftsmanship and attention to quality. If you are looking for a non-diamond engagement ring, Cerrone will have something to offer you. Their collection includes gemstones such as topaz, tanzanite and opals among others. Their ready-made ring collection is elegant and classy.

Cerrone takes their bespoke process quite seriously and provide a range of services. You can book a consultation with them to discuss your ideas and options in order to create a unique ring suited to your personality and relationship.

One thing we did not like when browsing online on their site is that many pieces are not available to online shoppers. You can browse online but you will have to visit them for your best options.

Moi Moi Fine Jewelry

Location: Queen Victoria Building, 16/455 George St, Sydney

Customer rating: 4.9 stars

Moi Moi has a wide range of products on offer, including moissanite, precious stones and artisan enamel jewelry. This makes it an excellent place to go for a diamond simulant for your engagement ring. Their moissanite range is comprehensive, reasonably priced and they take pride in explaining why moissanite is so wonderful (we agree there!).

Moi Moi provides customization and will work with you to incorporate your ideas and design into the ring. They are known for taking the time to assist each customer and for their friendly and accommodating service. All you have to do is make a booking and go in for a chat.

If you want to browse their collections, the website details the price and specifics of the items listed making it easy for the customer to stick to their budget. You can request more information of each article of jewelry and there are extra services such as free ring sizers, gift wrapping services and so on.

And one more thing.

We are pretty sure it isn’t pronounced moy-moy but instead mwah-mwah, Frenchstyle.

Fairfax & Roberts

Location: 19 Castlereagh St, Sydney NSW 2000

Customer rating: 4.8 stars

F & R are a luxury bespoke jewelry store that has been around for over a 150 years! Couture and bespoke engagement rings are one of their main specialities.

You can purchase excellent ready-made pieces at F & R so take time to browse their collections on their website or drop in to their store. Their jewelry selection is stunning and their craftsmanship impeccable.

When you take your ideas to their team, they will create detailed sketches for you and once the final sketch is done, you will be provided with a quote for your ring. The pieces are all hand-made and usually take 3-4 weeks, which isn’t such a bad turnaround time considering that it is being made from scratch.

And they even give you the hand drawing of the ring design as a keepsake.

If you already have an heirloom as an engagement ring but wish to upgrade it, F & R offers excellent restoration and upgrading services. They specialize in restoring antique jewelry and damaged precious items.

Customer rating: 4.8 stars

Established by Italian jeweler Orfeo Anania, this company initially focussed on the Australian opal but then spread their reach to diamonds and other stones.

Anania is one of the most popular jewelry manufacturers in Sydney and they maintain this position by upholding their reputation. It is clear that for Anania jewelers, a stellar reputation means everything.

Daniella’s after sales service is exceptional with a lifetime free cleaning and check-up service. In addition, they also provide a lifetime maintenance warranty on all their jewelry items.

Anne Schofield Antiques

Location: 36 Queen St, Woollahra NSW 2025

Customer rating: 5 stars

And finally, although most people don’t go for an antique engagement ring, we decided to include this excellent store for those of you who might.

If you are an antique lover, then Anne Schofield will be your mecca! Anne Schofield has an impressive range of antiques in their collection, with pieces from many past eras. It really is a treasure trove for the discerning antique enthusiast.

It is unfortunate that the website is not at all attractive, which may put some people off from browsing their collections. Don’t let it stop you though. It is worth the effort and why not drop in next time you’re in Sydney?
