My engagement rings were absolutely beautiful and my new fiance has only amazing things to say about the process they took him through to get the rings. Will definitely be supporting them due to their personal touch they add.💖💖💖 If you want timeless beautiful designs of amazing quality you have to get them from Ogilvie. My rate- The absolute best 1000/100

  • review rating 0  Initially I approached several Jewelers, but none like OgilvieGems. Alan made my experience so personal from day one, not only interested in my design, but also in myself and my soon to be forever partner. I came to Alan with a clear idea of what I want in my mind, but not so clear on paper😂. Somehow he managed to interpret exactly what I wanted and turned my design to a reality. The detail on the end product was so intricate and stunning. Thanks OgilvieGems for the great effort, you guys made my Fiancé a happy women and in return, myself a happy man!

OUR PRIDE – Be Careful

OgilvieGems only cast in 14K, 18K 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 jewelry. OgilvieGems only make use of (AAA+/GEM – Loupe Clean or Eye Clean Grade Gems), (GIA Certified Natural Diamonds), {Lab Made Diamonds – 100% Carbon Synthetic Diamonds – Various grading}, as well as only Charles and Colvard Created Moissanite {The original re-creators and patent holders with a 30+ year track record}.

As a South African first, OgilvieGems now offer GIA Certified Moissanite with a lifetime warranty, taking certification and warranty a step ahead of the rest.

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. 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.

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.
