About Us

Founded by two lovers, The Prestwick Place is a fine jewellery brand, specialising in Lab-Grown Moissanite & Lab-Grown Diamond engagement rings designed to last a lifetime. Hand-crafted in Australia by a team of highly-trained jewellers, we provide transparent pricing and conflict-free stones. The Prestwick Place Moissanite are an affordable possibility in a market where options have never before existed.
To be clear, the Moissanite is not a diamond imposter, it is in fact a very rare gem stone that rivals the diamond due to its refractive and hardness qualities. 
Moissanite share a lot of optical similarities to the diamond although, they are chemically and compositionally different.
In fact, Moissanite have a higher refractive index than diamonds do (more sparkle).
In addition to this is the hardness of the Moissanite stone. (MOHS scale)
On this scale diamonds are a 10 and a Moissanite is a 9.5-9.25. Followed by the Ruby (9), Sapphire (9), Emerald (7.5).
This ranking makes Moissanite the second hardest stone known to man.
Moissanite are incredibly strong and never change colour, become dull or lose their sparkle.
They are also completely traceable, conflict-free and eco-friendly.

Lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds.

Lab grown diamonds are composed of crystallised carbon just like natural diamonds so the two have the same appearance and the same physical, chemical and optical characteristics.

Lab-grown diamonds are created using extreme pressure and heat inside a machine rather than the bowels of the Earth. Lab grown diamonds are identical to earth mined diamonds in every way, except that they are grown in a lab.

They have the same chemical, physical, and optical properties as mined diamonds however, they are free from all forms of conflict, they do not impose ecological harm and damage to our environment and they do not require any diamond mining.

The Prestwick Moissanite stones are so pure and so white that they exceed that of any ordinary gem.
Our stones are an unfailingly pure, white colourless gems in the premium D-E-F range, with extreme hardness.

The Prestwick Lab-Diamond is available in any cut, colour, clarity and carat although we opt to list online D colour Lab-Diamonds in three clarity's only. (VVS1 - VS1 - SI1) 

We have done so mindfully, in order to provide a range to suit most budgets while maintaining a high quality calibre of Diamond. If however, you would like to increase or decrease your cut/colour/clarity/carat, please email us and we can quote you accordingly. 

Lastly, we do not use CAD's - we hand make each ring. 
CAD is a drawing of your ring that is created on computer software which is then used to make a cast mould of a ring. When using a CAD, the artistic, human element is removed and we don't believe this is how engagement rings should be made.
Just like sustainable food and fashion; handmade, artisan jewellery havehigher levels of materials and craftsmanship involved when making them. This is the special quality missing from all mass-produced rings.
With love,
The Prestwick Place.
