Have you found the one? Thinking of proposing? With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start planning your engagement! Here are four reasons why you should choose Matthews Jewellers to help you find the perfect engagement ring.
1. Quality and trust built on 60+ years of experience
With over 60 years of experience operating in the Hunter, Matthews Jewellers are a local, family run business that are renowned for delivering the highest quality jewellery. The Matthews team work with leading diamond merchants and jewellery manufacturers to deliver the latest and best products to meet all budgets and tastes. Every diamond is hand-selected to provide an expert assessment before it is set into your jewellery. We do all of this to ensure you receive a product that we are proud of and that you can trust will be with you for generations to come.
2. Widest Range of Diamonds in the Hunter
Regardless of size, colour or shape, all diamonds at Matthews are hand selected by an expert from the Matthews team right here in the Hunter. This is to guarantee that your diamond is the finest in its price range for cut, colour, carat weight and clarity.
We have the widest range of diamonds in the Hunter including:
- The Matthews Signature Collection: We work with the largest diamond merchants both locally and offshore to hand select our Signature collection of diamonds, representing high quality and great value in all price ranges.
- Matthews Certified Collection: Each diamond in our Certified collection is independently assessed by a reputable, not-for-profit and internationally recognised diamond grading organisation. We are careful to ensure that only high performance, certified diamonds are included in the Matthews Certified Collection.
- Hearts on Fire - The World’s Most Perfectly Cut Diamond: Understanding that Cut is the most important aspect of a diamond’s performance, Hearts on Fire guarantee that every diamond is meticulously cut to mathematical perfection. Hearts on Fire are simply the best diamonds you will see. As one of only 11 retailers selected to showcase the Hearts on Fire range in Australia, visit us in store to see why these diamonds outperform all others.
- Australian Argyle Diamonds: We are proud to source a range of stunning Australian Argyle Diamonds direct from the East Kimberly region. Available in a range of white, pink and champagne colours, Argyle diamonds are a beautiful piece of Australian Heritage that can be passed on for generations to come. Argyle diamonds come with a certificate of authenticity to guarantee your diamond is sourced from the renowned Australian Argyle diamond mine.
- Canadian Fire Diamonds: Locked for millions of years in Canada’s remote frozen north, each Canadian Fire diamond is 100% pure and mined with care and respect for our planet and its people. The clarity and colour of this range are consistently of the highest grades.
ALTR - Created Diamond Collection: Experiencing significant industry-wide growth, created diamonds represent the latest in diamond technology. Grown above the ground in a laboratory rather than below the ground, ALTR Created Diamonds are chemically, physically and optically identical to a mined diamond. We partner with ALTR for three reasons: their diamonds are grown from a seed of the purest diamond crystal (a type IIA diamond crystal) delivering a brighter, more scintillating diamond; their diamonds are larger; and ALTR run their facility on green energy, minimising their carbon footprint in the production process.
3. Matthews Lifetime Care Commitment
Our Lifetime Care Commitment is an endorsement of the quality of your purchase and a demonstration of our commitment to delivering you value for life.
