Alan was extremely helpful, professional and very forthcoming from the first consultation up untill the day I collected the ring. Yolandé, my fiancé, is absolutely in love with the ring and it was exactly how she imagined it to be! Alan created THE most amazing 5-Stone engagement ring for Yolandé, and in my opinion, the most beautiful ring I have seen! Awesome people, awesome jewellery!

diamond engagement rings


There are always cheaper options on the market for the “same” supposed offerings.
Take careful note of the specifications involved in each quote when doing comparisons.

OgilvieGems only cast in 14K, 18K (White | Yellow |  Rose) Gold and Platinum. Our Reasons for not offering 9K and 10K Gold as standard is 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. Quotes are generally structured with 14K, 18K, and Platinum as base metal choices, unless specified by client or budget constraints.

We feel our base metal offering should not fall below the 50% Purity in Gold. 9K and 10K Gold offerings  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 ranges between 58.5 and 95%.

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

Mined Diamonds: Only GIA Certified Mined 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.

Grown Diamonds – Our utmost favorite diamond and our general go to, yes you read it right. We absolutely love authentic 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!

Moissanite | Diamond Carborundum | Silicon Carbide: (Charles and Colvard) and (Majestic) top the list when it comes to quality and being authentically true Moissanite. Not all Moissanite is Moissanite. Not all Moissanite carry the correct ratio of carbon to silicon, nor is grown in the correct “natural simulated” growth patterns that top rated brands do.

Charles and Colvard are the original creators and patent holders of Moissanite, with the best patented roughage and growth process, placing them lightyears ahead of anyone else in the industry with Majestic a close second. 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

When going alternative, stick to the best!  


OgilvieGems is an official registered Charles & Colvard Retailer

OgilvieGems are pleased to introduce Charles & Colvard‘s newest premium line of Moissanite gemstones.

Forever One captures all of the same amazing properties as classic Moissanite but is now available, for the first time, as a colorless gem, grading D, E, and F on the GIA diamond color scale.

The Forever One is now available in 2 grades – “colorless” (D-E-F) and “near-colorless” (G-H-I).

Forever One Moissanite is truly the best diamond replacement in the world.
