The gemologist at George Bryan Jeweller’s is Holly Bryan, George’s daughter who studied at the prestigious Gem A laboratory in London. With 15 years experience she has benefited from best in class training that allows her to find the best value diamond - one that maximises budget impact - without compromising on quality. Once sourced she will design the most beautiful bespoke ring around it.
Diamond/diamonds will be sourced and design sketched up.

'Growing up I watched my dad create such beautiful things in his workshop - that is where my appreciation for great design began. After formally studying gemmology I was equiped with an additional understanding of how to use a gemstone's technical information to be able to maximise the beauty in any design' - Holly Bryan
Making a bespoke engagement ring can take time, while you wait we can offer a complimentary placeholder ring if desired. It consists of a small round cubic zirconia set in 9ct yellow gold, a perfect promise of more beautiful things to come.
At George Bryan Jewellers even the smallest detail means everything to us. Our engagement ring boxes open to reveal more than one surprise inside - the boxes contain a LED light that illuminates on opening to maximise impact and sparkle, creating an enchanting first impression.

Fancy cut stones
All Diamonds that are not round are considered to be “fancy cuts”. A good gemologist will understand what is really important for each different shape of "fancy cut" and which elements in the quality are less impactful so that the best stone can be found within the budget.
This bespoke "pear" shape diamond was selected to maximise the coverage on the hand as "pear" shaped stones look larger than round cut diamonds. Hundreds of stones were checked until a diamond with a small inclusion or "flaw" in just the right place was found. The inclusion kept the price down but it is completely hidden by one of the claws which hold the diamond in place because of Holly's clever design. Our decades of experience translate into a markedly elevated engagement ring for any budget.
We can provide certification for all diamonds that we source for you. Certification confirms the grade and a guarantee that it is conflict free.
1) Our diamonds can be supplied with a certificate confirming their grade and quality from either GIA or IGI which are the two most respected laboratories in the business. 2) All of our diamonds follow the Kimberly process, which means that they are certified conflict free.
