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. We launched our online presence in 2012. However my connection with diamonds goes back many more years.

My family started trading in diamonds and selling diamond jewellery over 40 years ago. I am the third generation to carry on this family heritage in UK. Congenial Diamonds is an example of expertise and passion for diamonds passed on from generation to generation.

Our Story

The family set up the business in Antwerp, the diamond capital of Europe. The main focus then 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.

Diamond grader - HRD certificate

I am proud to embrace and build on this family tradition. I started my training in the family-owned jewellery boutique in Guildford. Throughout the years, I gained an extensive knowledge in jewellery, particularly in diamonds. I complemented this hands-on experience with training at the Diamond High Council in Antwerp. In 2011 I successfully qualified as a Diamond Grader.

In 2012 I took the decision to expand on the success story of our family-run diamond jewellery boutique. Over a twelve year period, our small independent jewellery shop established a steady base of satisfied clients. Many of our clients return to purchase more items of jewellery. They are happy to recommend us to their families and friends. On this basis, we felt it was the right time to expand our market base and offer our diamond jewellery nationwide. This is how Congenial Diamonds came about.

Diamond jewellery is not only what I do. It is a passion, which I share with our clients through Congenial Diamonds. Whether you are an existing client of Congenial Diamonds or are looking to buy from us for the first time, my staff and I feel extremely privileged to assist you with your special purchase.
