|I began working in the diamond and jewellery trade about ten years ago – working for a diamond dealer in Hatton Garden, London’s diamond centre. On my first day I was sent to Antwerp, the largest diamond centre in the world, where I learned how to grade diamonds (colour, clarity, carat, cut and other various aspects of a diamond). After eight years and two children we left London and headed north where I had family, to get a better education and quality of life for the kids.
It was my old boss idea to use the knowledge I gained working for him and the contacts I have established in the trade to set up my own on-line shop.
Online shop with very low overheads means that you get better quality diamonds at lower prices than high street jewellers. If you live in the Cheshire area you can also benefit from a bespoke jewellery service. I work closely with a Bond street jeweller that would realise your dream to a high standard.
I buy my diamonds from reputable sources that do not sell diamonds that have been used to fund wars (known as blood or conflict diamonds).

Bespoke jewellery is the term given to:

Bespoke jewellery will be with the customer after the last payment was cleared.

Why should I buy from H & D Diamonds?
I have contact with a dealer, who is both very well established and respected in the trade and buys his diamonds direct from the source, this enables you to benefit from guaranteed savings. Having an on-line shop keeps the costs at a low level so you won’t get the cushy chair and the glass of champagne included in the price.
