The Perfect


Just as you and your life partner

fit perfectly together, so should your

engagement ring and wedding band.

To recommend wedding band styles, we need to understand

your lifestyle to ensure a style that suits. With this knowledge,

we can ensure your uniquely crafted wedding band is the

perfect match for you and your engagement ring.

In designing your unique ring we take all factors into

consideration; band width, the right metals, diamond

shape, diamond quality and diamond size that balances

beautifully with your engagement ring. We ensure the

design fits perfectly, no matter where your engagement

ring was purchased.

If you’re considering purchasing your engagement and

wedding bands together, please talk with our consultants

about our specially priced bridal sets. These classically

styled sets have been produced from the finest materials

and diamonds. Our international network and buying

power allows us to pass on added value without

compromise in styling or diamond quality.

To make sure

your ring is

a ring like

no other.

Stephens Jewellers specialist design service enables

us to create the ring of your dreams, whether it be an

engagement ring to symbolise your unique love,

a wedding band or special anniversary ring.

We combine the latest technology and design resources,

with our many years of experience and a highly skilled

specialist team to bring your unique diamond ring to life.

If you have seen a ring style you like in

the past or have an image, show our

design specialists. If we don’t have

something similar from our vast

selection, rest assured we can create

it for you, always ensuring we

understand your lifestyle and

adapt the design to fit within

your budget parameters.



In Australia the majority of engagement rings are made

from 18ct or 9ct gold, however as we have become an

increasingly multicultural society, tradition has evolved.

Stephens Jewellers can create your wedding bands to

match your engagement ring in virtually any of these

precious metals. 9ct, 14ct, 18ct and 22ct gold. Many styles

can also be crafted in platinum, palladium or lightweight



Prized since prehistoric

times, gold is the perfect

precious metal for

jewellery manufacturing

as it doesn’t rust, tarnish

or corrode. It can combine

with other metals to make

it more durable and create

variations in the finished

colour as represented in

the below forms.


In its purest form, 24 carat

(ct) gold is considered

too soft for general

jewellery use.



18ct gold is 18/24 parts or

75% (750) pure gold and

is heavier than 9ct gold,

which is 9/24 parts or

37.5% (375) pure gold. 18ct

yellow gold has a richer,

more golden colour than

9ct and tends to retain

its appearance better as

it ages over the years.

For this reason 18ct is

preferred for engagement

and matching wedding




Pure yellow gold can

be mixed with different

metals to create popular

colours such as white or

rose gold. Today, many

rings incorporate multiple

colours, which gives you

the freedom to mix and

match white, rose and

yellow gold to create your

perfect ring. White gold

jewellery is generally

finished with a surface

coating of rhodium,

another natural metal that

gives the bright finished

lustre. This coating will

need reapplying over

time to retain white gold




Unlike other white metals,

platinum and palladium

do not require rhodium

plating and their natural

brilliance makes them the

perfect choice for jewellery

that will last virtually

forever. Titanium is also

increasingly used in men’s

modern wedding band

designs, as it’s known for

its light-weight, yet highly

durable characteristics.

We are also often able to

combine a variety of these

precious metals for a truly

spectacular and hardwearing




Feel the difference

We recommend the

W&D Comfort

Curve for both our classic

wedding bands and

many of our patterned

wedding bands. The gentle

contoured inner surface

provides the ultimate in

wearing comfort, minimal

skin contact yet a secure

fit allowing for ease when

sliding on or off your finger.

Popular Diamond

setting Types

Diamond set wedding bands are increasingly popular

and properly balanced with your engagement ring,

they create a spectacular effect that enhances the

overall design.

The most popular designs incorporate either a channel

setting, bead setting or fine claw setting. Pave setting

of small shoulder diamonds on engagement rings can

also be complimented. To simplify the selection process,

we have developed a comprehensive sample collection

so our consultants can show you the exact effect of the

wedding band and engagement ring before we make it

to your size.

A modern styling trend is to incorporate split wedding

bands or two identical finer diamond set bands worn

either side of your engagement ring.

Once you have determined the right setting style and

diamond point size, we can then work out the right number

of diamonds and the best profile or surface curvature of

the band to compliment your engagement ring. As a tip

with any styling, an odd number of diamonds works best.







Can we incorporate a family

heirloom? The simple answer

is yes. We can restore to its

original condition, we can

replicate the original design

and use the diamonds,

or we can melt down the

gold and incorporate it in

a new modern design. Rest

assured we can work with

you to achieve a beautiful

reincarnation that can be

handed down to future



Sometimes an engagement

ring design needs a specially

shaped or fitted band to

compliment it. If the ring

was originally purchased

from Stephens Jewellers

we will be able to create

the exact band for you. If it

was purchased elsewhere,

designers can hand craft a

band to fit snugly with your

unique design too.

Affordable finance solutions

We appreciate that planning and preparing for your

wedding day is a very special and sometimes expensive

process. Many clients opt for finance as a way of

spreading the impact of buying their wedding bands.


Certegy Ezipay – no interest ever finance option


Traditional 3 month lay-by – pay a 20% deposit

to secure the order, and the balance can be paid

in installments over 12 weeks.
