Certificated diamonds

If you want that extra peace of mind a certificated diamond is just the thing. Every certificated diamond comes complete with a Jewellery Identification Report from the International Gemmological Institute, an internationally-recognised grading laboratory. This report contains an account of the diamond and assures its colour, clarity, carat weight and cut.

Our diamond sourcing

The source of our diamonds is an issue we take very seriously. You can be confident that concrete and comprehensive measures are being taken to ensure the products we sell do not include conflict diamonds.

We require all our trade suppliers of diamonds and diamond jewellery to provide us with a warranty that they do not supply us with conflict diamonds.

Caring for your engagement ring

To avoid dulling your diamond's optimum fire and natural brilliance, it is best to remove any jewellery when using oils, soaps and cosmetics. You can keep your beautiful engagement ring looking as stunning as the day you bought it with the Ernest Jones jewellery cleaning range – an all-in-one solution to cleaning, protecting and storing.

Although diamonds are very durable, we also recommend removing your engagement ring when carrying out strenuous work to avoid it being chipped by a hard knock. It is also important to ensure that your diamond engagement ring does not come into contact with chlorine bleach as this can damage the setting.

At Ernest Jones, we give you a lifetime promise to clean and annually inspect your diamond engagement ring for weakened or bent claws. Please bring your diamond privilege card along to any Ernest Jones store where we can assist you further.

10% off your wedding rings

When you buy your engagement ring at Ernest Jones, we will give you 10 per cent off your wedding and signet rings if you buy them at any Ernest Jones store.
