About Congenial Diamonds - Meet the Owner
Greetings! My name is Maria and I am the proud owner of Congenial Diamonds. It is my pleasure to share a few words about Congenial Diamonds and our story.
Congenial Diamonds is a UK-based online retailer with a showroom in the town of Guildford, in Surrey. Our online presence was launched in 2012, but my connection with diamonds goes back many more years.
My family started trading in diamonds and selling diamond jewellery over 40 years ago. Today, I am the third generation to carry on this family heritage in UK.
Years of expertise and a passion for precious gems, passed on from one generation to the next, makes Congenial Diamonds the best place to buy diamond jewellery.
The family set up the business in Antwerp, the diamond capital of Europe. Back then, the main focus was buying rough diamonds and selling the polished gemstones to wholesalers. Over the years, the business expanded into the retail space, selling diamond jewellery directly to customers.
I am proud to embrace and build on this family tradition. My training started in the family-owned jewellery boutique in Guildford. Throughout the years, I gained first-hand, extensive knowledge in jewellery, particularly in the field of diamonds, complemented with hands-on training experience at the Diamond High Council in Antwerp. In 2011, I successfully qualified as a Diamond Grader.
In 2012, my business expansion plan saw the light of day. Over the course of twelve years, Congenial Diamonds transformed from a small family-run diamond and jewellery store into a successful boutique with a steady base of satisfied clients, many of which have become repeat customers. From finding the perfect ring to obtaining the best diamond price, our customers value the expertise, coupled with exceptional service provided at Congenial Diamonds. Moreover, many clients are happy to share their recommendations with friends and family. After such successful growth, it was the right time to expand the market base and share our love for diamonds nationwide. This is how Congenial Diamonds came about.
Diamond jewellery is not just what I do – it is a passion, which I share with all our customers. Whether you’re an experienced diamond buyer or a novice, we feel privileged to assist you with your special purchase.
