diamond engagement rings

OUR PRIDE – Be Careful

OgilvieGems only cast in 14K, 18K (White | Yellow |  Rose) Gold and Platinum. Our Reasons for not working in 9K and 10K Gold are purely due to the purity of each metal and the market that we are in. We are not competing with the local jeweler or chain store, rather with the higher end custom market with our hand crafted work.

We feel that its not worth hand crafting any fine jewelry with less than 50% Purity in Gold (9k and 10K fall below 50% purity) where as 14K (Au585- 58.5% purity) and 18K (AU750 – 75% Purity)  as well as platinum (PT950 – 95%) fall in that higher end purity range.

The same goes for all the Gems we use in our jewellery. OgilvieGems only make use of Loupe Clean or Eye Clean Graded Gems.

As for Natural Diamonds: Only GIA Certified Natural Diamonds will be used under natural diamonds – on request we might do another certification or treatment, but this will be laid out in the quote in detail.


A note on Grown Diamonds – Our utmost favorite diamond and our general go to, yes you read it right. We absolutely love grown diamonds. These authentic (100% Real Natural Carbon) diamonds  are grown from a Natural Diamond Seed. Chemically and Compositionally Identical to Natural Diamonds, because well they are authentic diamonds. These are Eco- Friendly and Environmentally Conscious Choices.

Diamond Simulants, or simulated diamonds are not Diamonds – we do not do Simulated Diamonds!

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, On Moissanite, Diamond Carborundum, Silicon Carbide, Lab Created SiC : Only (Charles and Colvard Created Moissanite  and only FOREVER ONE RANGE will do.  {They are the original creators and patent holders and are light years ahead of anyone}. Its come to our attention that some companies are selling fake Charles and Colvard Warranty stones, with warranty cards, therefore we urge you to make use of only authorized South African  representatives which can be found on their portals. We so passionate about the superiority of Charles and Colvard Forever One Range that we have added additional offerings where we them locally graded by the DIA taking certification and warranty a step ahead of the rest. DIA is South Africa’s only trusted local and accessible to you as the client grading authority! We do this as we are tired of fakes, re brands hitting the market as rubbish with amazing promises! Stick to the best!  We have also added an additional Ltd Lifetime specially sourced Moissanite for the a more budget conscois buyer , these are hand picked for quality!

With so much fake Charles and Colvard Warranty stones, with warranty cards,  we urge you to make use of only authorized South African  representatives which can be found on their portals. As always, there might be cheaper options in the market for the same size Diamonds and Gems, please however take note carefully of the specifications involved in each quote when doing comparisons.
