Claw Set Wedding Rings
A popular choice for wedding bands is a claw setting style. This style keeps the focus on the diamond that is set and doesn't highlight the metal as much in this case. A claw set wedding band is a good choice for those who want to keep their wedding band fine but still want a good lustre amount of lustre. You can customise your ring by adding more or fewer diamonds as well as changing the size of these stones to suit you best. A perfect way to show off your diamonds in a slim, elegant design.
Channel Set Wedding Rings
Channel set diamond wedding bands are a great classic design that involves setting a row of diamonds in between 2 rows of metal. A channel is calved into the metal where the stones are then placed, and metal is worked down on top of the diamonds to hold them in. This style of the ring works well with most engagement rings they will be sitting next to and can also look fantastic even if going to be worn on its own.
Grain set Diamond Wedding Rings.
A diamond grain wet wedding band is a good option for those who want to add an art-deco feel to their set. Having the diamonds in-beaded in yellow or rose gold will tend to make the also a feature in a wedding ting of this nature, whereas if the ring is in platinum or white gold, the diamond will tend to blend in a little more with the white metal.
Gold Wedding Ring Bands

It is one of the most innovative diamond wedding bands we have on offer.
Our white gold, half-round, pave set diamond band features 3 rows of tightly packed diamonds that sparkle in one continuous band. Or for something you will truly adore, you can choose a white gold ring half set with 5 rows of brilliant cut, pave set diamonds. It is truly dazzling.
Steve Pallas Bespoke Jewellery - Loose Diamonds, Wedding & Engagement Rings
(03) 9602 2158
BESPOKE JEWELLERY IN MELBOURNE
Steve Pallas is known as the pre-eminent award-winning master jeweller in Melbourne. His workshop and showroom nestled in Melbourne's iconic Hardware Lane is the destination for fine bespoke jewellery. He knows the value of family and friendship. He understands the relationship with jewellery and the special occasions that define your lives. Steve Pallas loves what he does, and he embraces your milestones with knowledge, integrity, passion and expertise while offering an intimate jewellery experience for his clients.
An engagement ring is a timeless symbol of love and commitment. And for the rest of your life, your carefully chosen bespoke engagement ring promises to be a constant reminder of the romance behind your unique journey together.
Whether it's an elegant and perfectly classic solitaire diamond, a delicate three-stone trilogy, standout halo engagement ring or your own custom diamond design, at Steve Pallas Bespoke Jewellery, you are certain to find the perfect diamond engagement ring in Melbourne that reflects your unique style and is a suitably scintillating symbol of you and your partner's endless love and commitment to one another.
While the round brilliant cut engagement ring is a definite classic, it all depends on your own personal preferences as to which type of engagement ring in Melbourne will best reflect your personality and make a style statement that is uniquely yours. Apart from the fact that Steve Pallas Bespoke Jewellery can help you get an architecturally beautiful round brilliant cut diamond engagement ring, they can also help you get an engagement ring of any other cut of your choice, including emerald cut, cushion cut, oval cut, pear-shaped, and radiant cut just to name a few.
Round-cut diamonds have 58 facets that reflect an incredible amount of light, making this shape the most brilliant. Over 75% of all diamonds sold on the market today are round brilliant diamonds. However, this shape can also be one of the most expensive cuts, not only because of its popularity but because much of the diamond is lost during the cutting process.
Our collection of the most sought-after diamond engagement rings in Melbourne are made in your choice of the purest platinum, the finest 18kt gold (including our nickel-free 18kt white gold) and features only the finest sourced conflict-free diamonds that are synonymous with the Steve Pallas Bespoke Jewellery brand. Each impeccably handcrafted engagement ring has been created with one intention – to dazzle the person who the unique creation was meant for and to be a suitable reflection of the enormity that comes with making a lifelong vow to the one you love.
DESIGN YOUR OWN BESPOKE ENGAGEMENT RING
BESPOKE JEWELLERY DESIGN IS WHO WE ARE, AND IT'S WHAT WE DO.
Designing your own engagement ring is an exciting and memorable process. It's a way for you and your loved one to share something totally unique and one-of-a-kind, a true symbol of your love. Our design process brings you directly in contact with our award-winning designer and master jeweller, Steve Pallas. He'll guide you through every step of your custom engagement ring design process.
FIRST, YOUR VISION
You can start by selecting an existing style from our showroom or by submitting something totally unique and custom. We recommend bringing in any engagement ring images, sketches or inspiration to help us understand your vision. From here, Steve will assist you with any questions you may have during the custom engagement ring design process. He'll help you along the way, making sure your bespoke engagement ring turns out exactly as you envisioned. Through the help of personalised sketches and a custom 3D CAD, we'll ensure that your piece meets your every expectation.
During your consultation, Steve will draw a rough sketch based on your ideas and give you a price guide accordingly.
You can also easily get started designing your own engagement ring by using the Ask Question button on any of our pages. This will send a direct message to us, and we can answer any of your inquiries. You can send us a rough idea of the shape, carat weight and budget that you have in mind.
NEXT, WE SOURCE
We source the finest GIA Certified Diamonds, and while the 4Cs and certificates are an important consideration, every diamond that goes through Steve Pallas Bespoke Jewellery is personally inspected by Steve to ensure the certificate correlates to the diamond, has the correct diameter to weight, compares good or bad clarity grades, ensures bright and lively cuts, has the perfect depth percentage, and the best weight to value. Sometimes fluorescence has an adverse effect. Other times it helps.
We know everything there is to know about finding the best diamonds, and it's in our best interest to ensure you are completely satisfied with yours. Steve is an expert at finding the best quality and the right value in diamonds whilst maintaining the highest and strictest standards. He'll work directly with you, focusing on the quality you want and the budget you set.
Once your order is placed, and we know your vision, we will create a 3D CAD Image (Computer-Aided Design). A CAD is used to create, modify, and optimise your bespoke engagement ring design. This cutting-edge technology gives you a clear vision of the exact dimensions of your engagement ring, ensuring a precise manufacturing process whilst giving you the option to alter your piece until you are satisfied.
THEN, WE REVIEW
Envisioning your jewellery is sometimes not enough, so we create a 3D wax model of your design to allow you to see, touch and try it on. This process isn't always necessary but is an option if you are still unsure of the finished product.
FINALLY, WE BRING IT TO LIFE
After your approval, our expert jewellers start handcrafting your design. First, we cast or handmake your bespoke engagement ring in the precious metal of your choice. We then handset all diamonds and gemstones on premises by our in-house expert gem setter. And finally, we emery, hand-polish and clean to give your bespoke engagement ring its final finish.
DIRECT UPDATES FROM YOUR JEWELLER
Once we start handcrafting your ring, you have the option to receive direct messages of every step of your bespoke engagement ring process. With this feature, our master jewellers capture the progress of your ring throughout the manufacturing process and will send it straight to you. You'll watch the journey as our craftsmen bring your beautiful custom engagement ring to life.

With a high-calibre of diamonds its evident in the continual satisfaction of customers, our reputation as an industry leader and the first jeweller in the country to be awarded "The Supreme Diamond Award" by De Beers.
Cerrone jewellery & diamonds are crafted from an exquisite blend of white diamonds and natural Australian pink diamonds. Sourced from the rugged East Kimberly region in Western Australia, these rare diamonds are a gift of exclusivity.
At the heart of Australia's leading jewellery house is a family love story of passion and vision.
Born in Lanciano, a small village on the east coast of Italy, Nicola Cerrone immigrated to Australia when he was 12 years old. Following his schooling, he was employed as an apprentice to a master jeweller in Sydney's central shopping district, thus igniting his passion for what would become his life's work.
Cerrone travelled the world and learned from masters and artists throughout Europe before opening his flagship store in the backstreets of Leichhardt in 1972.
Word spread of Cerrone's work, and he garnered a loyal following for his craftsmanship. Within five years, his workshop grew from two to 20 employees, and he now operates the largest handmade jewellery workshop in Australia.
In 1991, Cerrone was commissioned by the Argyle Diamond Mine to design and execute the largest diamond necklace ever made in Australia. The brief from Argyle was to create an exhibition piece for investors. Cerrone's answer was to craft what would become known as the Million Dollar Necklace (right), an awe-inspiring piece that includes hundreds of cognac, champagne and white diamonds, totalling an unprecedented 230 carats.
In 1998, Cerrone created the Elizabethan Ruff, set with 559 round brilliant-cut diamonds. Each diamond is bezel-set to a radiating platinum frame which fastens with hinge joints and an invisible clasp. The impressive piece earned Cerrone the 1998 De Beers Diamonds International Award, presented in Paris – an event that jewellery insiders have nicknamed the "Oscars of the jewellery industry".
In recognition of his success in Australia, Cerrone received the Key to the City (il Frentano d'Oro) in his hometown of Lanciano Abruzzo, Italy. The award celebrates individuals who have succeeded abroad and made a positive difference to the arts and the community. Nicola also became an ambassador of the Abruzzo region, which he still holds today.
Whilst celebrating this honour, Cerrone launched 'Passione', a collection dedicated to the region in Italy.
Over the past 45 years, the business has cemented Itself as an industry leader and is highly regarded for Its craftsmanship and reputation for design excellence. At the core of Cerrone, philosophy Is a focus on creating unique, handcrafted designs using only the finest materials, which push the boundaries for Its clientele In design and customer service.

Suzi Zutic - Loose Diamonds, Wedding & Engagement Rings
401 326 887
BOUQUETS OF EXOTIC GEMSTONES | THE FINEST PRECIOUS METALS | PASSIONATELY CREATED | HANDCRAFTED
Unusual wedding and engagement ring with an antique flourish. All jewellery is bespoke and can be personalised as required. Custom made bridal jewellery sets are also available upon request. They are made in Melbourne, Australia.
SUZI ZUTIC IS A JEWELLERY DESIGNER AND GEMMOLOGIST FROM MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, WHO PRODUCES UNIQUE, PERSONALISED ENGAGEMENT RINGS, WEDDING RINGS, BRIDAL SETS, EARRINGS AND OTHER CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN. HER BESPOKE WORK IS HANDMADE FROM PRECIOUS METALS SUCH AS PLATINUM, GOLD AND SILVER AND ENCRUSTED WITH EXQUISITE GEMSTONES INCLUDING DIAMONDS, SAPPHIRES, RUBIES AND EMERALDS. SUZI LOVINGLY SOURCES AND COMBINES THESE MATERIALS TO CREATE MODERN, UNUSUAL PIECES OF THE FINEST QUALITY. HER CUSTOM MADE JEWELLERY IS HANDCRAFTED IN HER STUDIO IN MELBOURNE AND STOCKED BY JEWELLERY STORES AND BOUTIQUES ACROSS AUSTRALIA.
Suzi Zutic's jewellery is born of a varied and long-standing artistic career; as well as being a jeweller and certified gemmologist, Suzi is a qualified interior designer with a sound understanding of the principles of design. The pleasure she derives from the act of creating is evidenced by a large body of work which is expressive, eclectic, intricate and colourful. Her jewellery has been presented internationally and is currently stocked by galleries across Australia and New Zealand.
Suzi has a meticulous hand which allows her to indulge her penchant for detail and achieve a high level of craftsmanship. Her ongoing commitment to quality and technique has seen her undertake studies in gemmology, diamond grading and gemstone setting. This, combined with an interest in jewellery making throughout history, has resulted in work which draws on a diverse repertoire of techniques including enamelling, engraving, the ancient practice of lost-wax casting, stone setting and gem faceting.
Suzi's work has taken forays into the distant and not-so-distant past, using historical trends and practices as springboards for new pieces. Her creations are playful homages to forgotten forms and styles. Some of her jewellery is archaic-looking, using roughly shaped wax castings peppered with small jewels or sometimes adorned in bare metal alone. Other jewellery has drawn on past religious and royal opulences, featuring impressive stones or hinting at ornate religious iconography. Other pieces have taken inspiration from antique jewellery fashions. Her more recent work has seen a move to harder lines and more geometric shapes as well as what seems to be examples of pure improvisation based on the materials themselves: the cut of a gemstone might inspire a ring or multiple gems might be grouped into a bouquet of stones. What ties it all together is an undercurrent of mystery and rarity, fine craftsmanship and the sumptuousness of the materials

Wedding rings to capture your love.
A piece of jewellery marks a special occasion or turning point in your life, and there's no better example of this than the rings chosen for your wedding – which will truly be one of the most important days of your life.
The exchanging of classic wedding rings and bands is more than just the giving of gifts between a newlywed couple. It signifies the coming together of two people, eternal love, and the start of a beautiful new chapter.
Your wedding rings should reflect just how big a step this really is. Just as importantly, men's wedding rings should represent the specific qualities of the wearer and tie in with the personality and taste of you and your loved one.
Custom-made wedding rings are as unique as your love.
No ring can compare to the person that you have fallen in love with. But it should encapsulate a part of their story and passion.
With a custom-designed wedding ring, we bring your dream ring to life.
Bespoke wedding rings made to order
A ring shouldn't try to stand in for the person that you have decided to spend the rest of your life with. But a custom-made design can keep a part of their essence with you at all times. Whether you are after a specific type of metal such as platinum, or a certain arrangement of precious stones, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to have exactly what you want when it comes to style.
Of course, wedding rings aren't the only tokens of love associated with marriage. At Joseph George Jewellery, we also create custom-made engagement rings and, further down the line, eternity rings to solidify your commitment. These three items aren't always worn together, but it's important for them to work as a trio – even if that's only for special occasions. Our handmade jewellery and custom designs allow you to make sure that all three rings complement each other. This may not be an issue if all three pieces are being designed by one jeweller, but if your engagement ring is a family heirloom, going down the custom route is the only way to ensure your wedding ring works alongside it.
Simon West Fine Jewellery - Loose Diamonds, Wedding & Engagement Rings
03 9639 1404
Who is Simon West: An experienced Jeweller?
Simon began his jeweller career as a Gold & Platinumsmith apprentice back in 1993 under Michael Cook in Cobram/ Barooga on the Murray River. With vision and ambition in his eyes, he decided to move to Melbourne in 1995 and learn more about the business employed at Bennettswood Jewellers in Burwood for four years. The goal was to learn as much as he could before branching out on his own where he knew he could add his personal touch and make special moments even more meaningful. Simon opened the doors to Simon West Fine Jewellery, located at the Capitol House Building on Swanston Street back in October 1999, but he had always dreamed of moving his workshop to the famous Manchester Unity Building on the Corner of Collins & Swanston street. Why? This building is the historic home of Melbourne's finest jewellers. In 2002, he realised his dream, and he set up the jewellery workshop and showroom in this building & never looked back as he is still located there today.
Diamonds are a Man's Best Friend.
Simon ethically sources the diamonds embedded in all engagement and wedding rings from all corners of the world, including Canada, Mumbai, Israel and Belgium. Simon maintains a strong focus on diamonds that are cut to perfection with the goal to unlock the sparkle within for maximum brightness.
Simon has a passion for design and quality. He is so detailed and passionate that he developed a collection of diamond engagement rings that are 100% made by hand, giving them longevity and the potential to one day become a family heirloom. Simon becomes frustrated that less than 10% of engagement rings sold across Australia were made and are still not made by hand these days. Simon saw this as an opportunity to bring back traditional goldsmith and jewellery making back to the modern era, offering a unique, individual and truly special dimension to his clients.
Designing luxurious fine jewellery is very fulfilling, and Simon loves creating it. He loves visioning new & original rings and jewellery ideas. Although he designs contemporary designs, his favourite style is Art Deco-inspired designs.
The Diamond Ring Showroom & Store

We specialise in commitment jewellery, including engagement and eternity rings, as well as women's and men's wedding rings and bridal jewellery. One of a kind personalised jewellery, including earrings, necklaces, diamond and coloured gemstone rings and men's jewellery, can be designed and crafted to any specifications.
Each item we create is custom designed and handcrafted to our client's specifications, and nothing is mass-produced. We understand that our clients like to know what to expect before commissioning a piece to be made, and so below is some basic information about our process.
With few exceptions, everything is handmade in our Melbourne studio. During the initial consultation, we will discuss your ideas and requirements. From there, we will work together to source the materials and develop the design. Then manufacture can begin! You will be involved in every step of the process from start to finish.
From the initial consultation to completion usually takes 4-12 weeks. This includes working with you to finalise the design, making any necessary adjustments and sourcing the right materials to make sure you are completely happy with the outcome.
Whilst it isn't possible to give an exact quote without knowing the details of your project, we are always happy to discuss what can be done within your budget.
Initial consultations are free. If you do wish to proceed and have designs drawn up to scale, there will be a $300 design fee that is deducted from the cost of your piece if and when the quote is accepted.
There are, of course, many stages in the process where it is important to minimise waste and ensure best practices, but here are some of the direct ways in which we go about reducing our impact.
These stones have been mined and cut by hand many years ago and re-introduced into the supply chain. Because they are cut by hand, each and everyone is completely unique.
These stones are modern cut stones that have been previously set in jewellery and re-introduced to the supply chain. Every recycled (including antique) diamond helps to reduce the demand for future mining ventures.
Certified Origin Diamonds
These are Australian and Canadian Diamonds with certificates of origin, ensuring that they are conflict-free.
White diamonds are the most readily available, with champagne, cognac, yellow, pink, blue and purple available in limited quantities of Australian certified stock.
We are constantly working with suppliers and communities to find gems that are sustainably and ethically sourced and cut.

Loose Diamonds, Wedding & Engagement Rings FAQs
Diamond buying requires a little planning. But, follow along with these guided steps, and you will be able to find the perfect diamond in no time.
Set a budget: the most important part of buying a diamond is setting a budget and never exceeding that budget. Diamonds are a symbol of commitment, not a measure of spending capacity.
It is important not to forget that and never pressure yourself into spending more than you are comfortable affording. You never want regret, in the present or future, to be part of your engagement story. To set a budget, do very high level, preliminary research about the average diamond engagement ring purchase price. See if that's above or below where you may want to be.
See what going up or down in carat gets you. You need to establish a preliminary baseline to budget relative to it and properly set your budget. Otherwise, you'll find yourself changing your budget around, and this will get frustrating. If your budget is on the lower end, we recommend looking into lab-created diamonds. Lab-grown diamonds are chemically, physically, and optically the same as natural diamonds. Access our Lab Diamond Buying Guide for more information.
Timing: give yourself about 1 month, plus or minus a couple of weeks. You're not expected to become a diamond expert, and diamonds are something you buy every day. Therefore, don't obsess over them by spending months researching every single aspect -- it'll drive you crazy.
Also, taking too long may result in questioning your decision and put off your proposal longer than you should wait. It's best to purchase a diamond when you're research is fresh in your mind, and you're not learning about diamond a little per week. Odds are you'll forget many of the things you learned early on, which are often the most important parts of diamond research. Also, give yourself time. A ring takes about two weeks to make unless your purchase a preset ring. Don't cut it close and stress yourself out.
Shape first: The first and most visual consideration is the diamond's shape. The most popular shape is the brilliant round cut. If, however, you know they prefer another shape, definitely go in that direction. It is never a good approach to be selecting between multiple shapes at the same time because the styles, pricing and consideration all vary so much. The diamond's shape will really set the standard for the style and look. Some rings are only compatible with certain shapes, so we recommend confirming that first.
The 4 C's: Once your shape is final. You'll need to read up on the 4 C's and beyond the 4 C's. Carat, Cut, Color and Clarity are the most visual characteristics of a diamond. That is why they get the most importance. They also are the factors that set the diamond's price. You don't have to be an expert, and you'll never be grading a diamond. You simply need to understand them enough to decide on the diamond you may want to choose.
The best way to understand the relationship between the 4 C's and a diamond's price is as follows: Think of the C's as levers. Unfortunately, with diamonds, you can't have it all. So carat is typically the lever on your left, and Cut, Color and Clarity are levers on your right. If you pull the carat lever up, you may need to pull the other C levers down (and vice versa), so the diamond works with your budget.
Once you've pulled the levers up and down, you'll ultimately find the right balance, which will lead you to select a diamond. Be careful though, these are very sensitive levers, meaning that small changes in diamond attributes are large changes in price.
Selecting The Right One: Finally, once you've determined the right combination of diamond attributes for you, you'll probably notice that you still have several options remaining. Well, now what? Don't always go with the least expensive. Diamond suppliers know their inventory. They price diamonds a certain way for a reason.
If the price seems too good to be true, there's a reason for that. Second, consider comparing the attributes beyond the 4 C's such as fluorescence, measurements (length to width ratio), table, depth, polish and symmetry. These factors will help you. Beyond that, we highly recommend consulting a gemologist, ideally one that graduated from an institution such as GIA.
The 4Cs of diamond quality will help you learn how to buy a diamond. This basic knowledge will unlock the mystery of a diamond's quality and help you understand a diamond's value and price.
- Diamond Colour In most diamonds, the term refers to the absence of colour. The less colour in the stone, the more desirable and valuable it is. Some of these differences are not visible to the naked eye but directly impact the overall quality and price of the stone.
- Diamond Clarity measures the amount, size and placement of internal 'inclusions' and external 'blemishes.' Grades run from 'Flawless,' with virtually no imperfections, to 'Included,' which contain a significant number of imperfections.
- Diamond-Cut does not refer to a diamond's shape but the proportion and arrangement of its facets and the quality of artistry. The amount of brilliance, sparkle and fire in a diamond is determined by cut. Grades range from 'Excellent' to 'Poor.'
- Diamond Carat refers to a diamond's weight. Generally speaking, the higher the carat weight, the more expensive the stone. However, two diamonds of equal carat weight can have very different quality and prices when the other three Cs are considered.
No matter how beautiful a diamond may look, you cannot see its true quality. Knowing more about the 4Cs of diamond quality will help you learn how to buy a diamond. The 4Cs provide you with the information you need to see the diamond's actual quality.
Diamond colour matters, but only to a certain point. The way we approach the 4Cs, we separate cut and carat weight from colour and clarity. Cut and carat are positive traits (you want to maximise as much as possible). Colour and clarity are negative traits that you want to make sure you don't notice when looking at a diamond.
When it comes to colour, there is a line where you notice whether the diamond is clear or has a yellowish tint. Your goal should be to make sure you don't buy a diamond with a yellowish tint so low that you notice it. That line between yellowish and clear varies based on the shape of the diamond and the style set you are putting the diamond in. We get into that below.
Once the diamond looks clear to you, there isn't much to gain by spending more on a higher colour grade. Keep in mind that buying a diamond is a zero-sum game. If you spend more money by going with a higher colour grade than necessary, you will have to sacrifice size, brilliance or clarity. Is it worth doing that? Take a look at this challenge and decide for yourself.
A diamond is the hardest of all gemstones and is known for its extreme durability. To contribute to its longevity, it is advisable to take great care of your diamond jewellery, preferably by keeping each diamond creation separate and avoiding contact with other pieces.
Are Diamonds Indestructible?
There is a myth surrounding diamonds; they aren't indestructible. While diamonds are often described as being the hardest natural material on the planet, that doesn't mean that they aren't be scratched, chipped, or broken. So the expensive gem on your finger needs to be treated with care to prevent damage, even though it is pretty tough, and Noe's Jewelry has some tips that will help you avoid damage to your diamond.
Kinds Of Damage Diamonds Can Sustain
Diamonds are hard, but they can be damaged. It is possible to break or chip a diamond. However, breaking or chipping isn't the only way to damage a diamond. For example, you can damage a diamond with chemicals that cause it to look dull and cloudy or discolour the stone until it is professionally cleaned.
Be careful that you take off your ring when you are doing anything that could cause it to sustain damage. In some cases, you may damage the stone and the metal of the setting; and sometimes, rings can't be fixed.
If your precious ring suddenly loses its centre stone, you should call your jeweller and insurer straight away. However, other damages are more difficult to spot. Here are a few simple ways to gauge whether your ring needs repair.
Hold the ring close to your ear and tap it with your finger. If you can hear a rattling noise, this is a sure sign that something is loose and should be repaired.
Do a visual check for cracks or chips in your diamond. If anything appears different from when you bought it, consult your jeweller. If you still have the paperwork from when you purchased the diamond, compare your ring to the picture on the paperwork.
Take note if it becomes repeatedly snagged. If your diamond continues to catch on your clothes, consider the possibility that the claw isn't performing as designed. You may need to have the setting fixed or even redesigned.
