A fantastic jeweller, professional in every aspect of the word. It is very hard to select an engagement ring for your loved one and all in all a stressful experience for anybody. Ultimately worth it when her face lights up when she looks at the ring for the first time, for this I have Richard to thank. Richard helped us through the process from beginning to end guiding us through each step with his thorough knowledge in Gemology. Would recommend him to anyone!


Dear Richard,
Just a quick note to say thank you again so much for such a BEAUTIFUL ring!! I’m so happy and you perfectly captured what we had in mind with your own personal take. Thanks so much for taking the time to take us through everything so thoroughly. We really felt looked after and we will be raving about “Richard the Ringman’s Diamond School” for years to come!
Will took some photos when we got home…so I have attached them for you.
Thanks again,


Hi Richard,
Just wanted to say thank you so much for my stunning engagement ring – I got such a surprise last night! You have exceeded my expectations hugely and I absolutely adore it. Nick and I thoroughly enjoyed the process of designing the ring and learning more about about diamonds from you – it really is an art!
We look forward to catching up with you soon and will return your magazines. We’ll also come to see you towards the end of the year about our wedding bands.
Thanks again, we really appreciate all your work on what is such a special thing for us both.

Dear Richard,
On behalf of Travis & Jess, Brett and Jen, and Duane and myself, we would like to sincerely thank you for the excellent job you have done on each of our individual “stories”. We thank you for your kindness, professionalism, craftsmanship and time – it has not gone un-noticed, and, we are all very appreciative, in fact we couldn’t thank you enough. When our father heard of what you were doing for us all, he wanted to make something special – “to the hand that crafted such beautiful rings!!” Dad made you a pen, out of a piece of wood called tiger murtyl . Please accept this small gift as a symbol of our gratitude. To us it is very special that you have made my brothers and my rings – all the VanDer Veldens. Here’s a cheers to you Richard and to your continued success.

“My fiancé and I were provided with professional knowledge and honest advice about diamonds. We were able to choose our own unique engagement ring
design that was beautifully crafted down to every small detail. I have had numerous compliments on how stunning it is, and two months on, I still can’t take my eyes off it myself!! Richard is a true expert, whose work is of the highest quality.”

Over the past seven years my husband and I have commissioned Richard to make five rings for us. A solitare ring, my engagement ring, two weddings bands with a row of diamonds set in both rings and recently the most stunning diamond ring you have ever seen (except for Richard’s fiancé’s ring of course).
The ring is a single band approximately 7cm wide with 96 baguette and brilliant cut diamonds across the top half of the ring. It is more beautiful than I ever imagined it would be and I get comments all the time from friends, as well as people that I don’t even know. It is so sparkly and gorgeous and I am absolutely in love with it!
Richard is the most professional jeweller I have ever met and not only because he is so passionate about his art and the beautiful pieces he makes, but also because he is so committed to completing a piece of jewellery so perfectly and with such precision and detail. He will go to any lengths to make sure his customers are 100% happy with the finished product.
I would not hesitate to recommend Richard to anyone wanting to commission a special piece of jewellery to be made just for them.

Our experience with purchasing an engagement ring from Diamond Prominence was a most pleasurable one. The most professional and personal service which was provided was only one of the reasons why we chose Diamond Prominence over other larger companies in the city! We were fully informed of the several details that make for a quality diamond and never mislead once through the process.
I have recommended Diamond Prominence to friends of mine who are also ecstatic with their engagement ring… and this form of advertising speaks for itself!

Dear Richard,

Nichola and I wanted to thankyou for your many hours of work, not only designing and building our engagement ring but also for your time in explaining the four C’s to us and educating us in the finer points of choosing a stone.
Nichola has not stopped looking at the ring since I first put it on her finger 3 months ago and she is constantly receiving complements on it.
Maybe I am a bit biased but I have never seen a ring that catches my eye so much, and I never thought I would be “tipping” a jeweller for doing such a wonderful job.
I would never allow a friend of mine to buy a ring “off the shelf” and the wedding ring you designed completes the engagement ring beautifully.
We look forward to seeing you in 11 months for the eternity ring!

Best Wishes

Cameron (& Nichola) Stillman
