I am planning to ask my girlfriend to marry me and I'm looking for an intricate ring for her. Does anyone knows the best jewellery store where I can buy diamond engagement ring in Australia?

@aaronwest,
Have you considered trying the classified ads and telephone directory?

@Ragman,
Or Google?
And the yellow pages online?

@msolga,
Does Australia use Yellow Pages?

@Ragman,
Yes.
They are delivered to your home free. Along with the White Pages.
They make wonderful doorstops.
But I believe their days are numbered as most people use the internet now.
I can't remember the last time I actually removed the packaging & used either.

Back in the old days it was rumoured that the police of the Flying Squad used the yellow pages (which were pink then) as a persuader.

You could whack your victim with it and it didn't leave marks.

I wonder if this is a troll post? If not - if you live in Sydney, try Nic Cerrone - look him up in the phone book or whatever!

I was wondering the same thing, Margo. A little disingenuous, don'cha think? And no mention of what city or locality.

@Lustig Andrei,
I really hope that the poster is a troll. If not, I would suspect that he is very young and naive. If he is unable to figure out how to buy a diamond ring, and if asking for help, leaves out vital information, he is nowhere near ready for marriage.

@aaronwest,
Check the van at the corner of Hay and King catty-cornered from the Rydges Hotel in Perth. Ivan and Nate will offer you a vast selection of recently 'acquired' jewels including diamonds in white gold settings and some with pink opals, others with sapphires. Be sure to wear good running shoes and be ready to dash off if the police are in approach mode.

@Ragman,
Thank you for your reply. Yes, but I am looking for an online store that could have all the information I need about the jewellery. I tried visiting some but when I went to their shop I end up disappointed. My girl really have an intricate taste when it comes to accessories that's why I so careful what type of ring I would consider for her.

This website has a lot of information about choosing a diamond. My problem with your post is that you say that your gf has intricate taste, but you don't mention what you want to spend. The prices of diamonds vary all over the place, and you really have to know what you are doing when buying a diamond.

Good luck!

Why not take the lady for a walk or even better a stroll along the best shopping street in town. Stop by the jeweler stores and see what she wants to look at. Ask her what kind of ring she likes
Maybe she does not even want to diamond ring.
There are rings where the diamond is above the ring - or how to describe it - I guess what you call engagement ring. I find them super impractical as the diamond get stuck in everything.
Then there are rings where the diamond is in the ring - which I think is very practical.
And there are plain rings.
If you love her -let her come along to buy it. She is the one to wear it all her life - hopefully.

In Sydney, as I said above - Nic Cerrone - I think he's in Leichhardt - or used to be!

There must be a squillion jewelry stores here - wander around!

Or - there's always Tiffany!

You can take help of Google to find popular jewelry stores nearby you and also you can ask to your local friends or known person. I hope your love relation turns to a successful married relationship.
