Who We Are

Thank you for reading about who we are and how Ember Diamonds came to be.

My name is David and both I and my fiancée Hannah, have the pleasure of owning and managing Ember Diamonds – a small company local to Altrincham, Cheshire (UK). We decided to call ourselves ‘Ember Diamonds’, as a representation of our main ethos – reinvigorating and giving a new ‘lease of life’ to pre-loved jewellery pieces. As legend would have it – the phoenix is re-born from the ashes in an amazing explosion of fire!

Although Hannah and I have both trained and worked in the NHS as health professionals since the ages of 18, we have always had a passion for jewellery. I have been fascinated by crystals and gemstones and began by collecting loose semi-precious rocks as young as 5 years old. In around 2015, I became interested in jewellery photography and enjoyed the challenge of attempting to capture the brilliance and beauty of diamond and coloured gemstone jewellery.

This passion developed into seeking out and selecting beautiful pre-loved items of jewellery and working with talented local independent working jewellers to reinvigorate them back into pristine condition, via professional restoration. We are very fortunate to have some amazing friends and contacts within the jewellery industry and have learned so much from so many people. We know how fortunate and privileged we are to be able to work with stunning and unique pieces of jewellery, whilst offering an ethical service to clients, at fair prices that work for everyone. We also appreciate how lucky we are to have worked with some of the fabulous clients we have to date.

What We Offer

We sell a range of diamond pieces (mostly engagement rings) and take pride in being able to sell very high-quality diamond jewellery at a very small fraction of the high street prices. Unbeknown to most people – the high street places a huge mark up on diamond jewellery. We are passionate about being able to offer people top quality diamond rings for typically 20-45% of what you could expect to pay from a high street store. Rejuvenating diamond jewellery this way, is also a more ethical way to supply items for our clients. 

We predominantly stock 100% natural Earth mined diamonds – none of which contain any colour or clarity enhancement of any kind. The certification that accompanies the diamonds (most of our diamonds are certified) – will always confirm this. We also stock a minority of jewellery pieces containing laboratory created diamonds, and our listings will always make this clear where applicable. All our items are either brand new and unworn or have been professionally restored to look as new, via cleaning, buffing, polishing (and for white gold, rhodium re-plating). Most of our items come with comprehensive diamond certification from professional/well respected and reputable diamond grading labs such as ‘GIA’, ‘IGI’, ‘HRD’, ‘AGS’ & ‘Anchorcert’. If you would like us to have an item certified for you, please ask us about this.

Our Bespoke Service

We also offer a bespoke service where we can work with you to produce any unique item of jewellery of your choice. Your bespoke item will be designed and made to your requirements by our team of designers, goldsmiths and jewellery making experts. Please feel free to reach out to discuss this with us.

Thank you for reading about us and our business. We look forward to hearing from you.
