ABOUT GLOBAL DIAMONDS
A legacy of fine jewellery design, expert gem craft, and world-class diamond setting
Global Diamonds has established a strong reputation for handcrafting fine jewellery, working together with our clients to create quality pieces designed to last generations. For over 10 years, our jewellers have designed, sketched and crafted unique pieces of jewellery, right here in our store.
As diamond specialists, we not only hand-select our own diamonds for their cut and colour, but we are also able to give open, honest advice about the type of diamond to suit your design and your budget. We’re Northland’s boutique locally owned and operated handmade jewellery specialists, with expert goldsmiths and jewellers waiting onsite to transform your concepts into reality.
