Ronan Campbell FAQ
Why should I buy diamonds from Ronan Campbell?
Ronan Campbell has been immersed in the diamond business for almost 20 years. His network of trusted dealers spans the world. The personal experience from start to finish will make it very clear from the outset you are dealing with an expert removing the unnecessary pomp while keeping the attention to detail and personal touch, a level of continuity which cannot be replicated in a big chain or high street store. His keen eye for only selecting the finest diamonds to suit his clients needs and budgets has the majority of his clients turn into friends who come back to Ronan for every special occasion.
In most retail environments staff of many different levels of diamond education must sell the inventory in front of them as their store/company owns it and must try to get a return, this can sometimes lead to suggesting diamonds which for whatever reason bought at the wrong time/currency fluctuations, high prices, lower qualities have sat there for many years.
Ronan curates a selection of diamonds for each client based solely on their requirements the main benefit of this process is newly available diamonds are shown to clients at the current market price, this eliminates the chance of overpaying for a diamond.

With the closure of the Argyle mine (source of 90% of the worlds
pink diamonds) scheduled in 2020 now is certainly the time to consider the safe
haven of pink diamonds to add an alternative option to your portfolio. Viewing
of this class of diamond is only available at our suite in Antwerp.
Are Ronan’s diamonds ethically sourced?
Always adhering to the Kimberley Process (which has its limitations) All of Ronan’s diamonds are ethically sourced through trusted partners many of which Ronan has worked with for over 15 years. Ronan takes this side of his business extremely seriously. Constantly involved in self and formal education. Researching how the diamond business can and does directly benefit the people of African countries like Sierra Leone & Botswana through education and investment in health and infrastructure. Developments in Sierra Leone will hopefully soon see microeconomic benefits impact artisanal miners in a much more meaningful way.
