DRI (Diamond Rings Internationale) is an Australian-owned jewellery design and manufacturing studio that specialises in high-quality, value-for-money diamond engagement rings, wedding bands and loose diamonds.
Our rings are designed and manufactured in Australia to the most exacting standards by skilled and experienced Australian gold and silver smiths.
And because our diamonds come from Antwerp (Belgium) — the acknowledged world centre for diamond quality and cutting — you can be assured you are buying the best.
Every ring sold by DRI comes with a certificate of retail valuation issued by an experienced, independent and registered valuer. This certificate details the diamond weight in carats and describes its cut, colour, clarity. It also describes the precious metals used in the ring. It is your guarantee of authenticity and proof of value for insurance purposes.
Visit the Australian Gem Testing Laboratory website to find out more.
DRI can organise for your diamond to be independently certified by one of the two main international certifying bodies:
the Diamond High Council (HRD), and the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
These organisations issue certificates stating the scientific facts of your diamond after examining it in a fully-equipped laboratory. As well as the 4Cs (cut, color, clarity, carat weight), the certificate issued describes the diamond’s shape, exact measurements, proportions and depth percentages. It also grades the polish and symmetry and comments on characteristics like fluorescence, graining, and any imperfections in the diamond.
A Diamond Certificate does not include a statement of the monetary worth of the diamond. This service is only offered for diamonds of 0.70 carats (70 points) and greater and costs AUD$150.
