Where do diamonds come from?
The vast majority of the world's diamonds are now mined in Russia, Australia and several African countries such as Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zaire and Sierra Leone. Once the diamonds are extracted, approximately 80% pass through the hands of De Beers and on to the cutting centres of Antwerp, New York and Tel Aviv. From here diamonds may take a number of different channels before being set into a piece of jewellery.
Are Walker & Hall diamonds conflict free?
Diamonds offered for sale by Walker and Hall have been purchased from legitimate sources not implicated in funding conflict and are in compliance with United Nations resolutions. Walker and Hall endorses and follows the Kimberly Process and hereby guarantee that our diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the suppliers of these diamonds.
Purchasing from Walker & Hall
Why should I buy from Walker & Hall?
Firstly, Walker & Hall is one of the oldest jewellers in New Zealand and with age and family ownership comes trust and a dedication to quality.
Secondly, our own in house gemologist regularly checks the quality of our diamonds before they are sent to an independent gemologist where they are colour graded. The diamonds are then valued by a member of the jewellery valuers society according to international market prices. This way we can guarantee an accurate assessment of the diamond.
Thirdly, our trading history coupled with our scale of operation - fourteen outlets nationwide - allows us to buy direct from the diamond cutting houses, avoiding wholesalers and distributors. This, and the fact that we do not incur the costs associated with a large public company, translates into unbeatable value for money.
Finally, at Walker & Hall we believe that jewellery is about celebration and remembering the important moments in your life.

How much should one spend on an engagement ring?
Although this is very much a matter of personal preference, many people use two months salary as a guideline. Spend less and people will talk, spend more and they'll rave!
