Why purchase on the internet?
Buying online eliminates the layer of wholesalers which can save you up to 60% of high street prices. Unlike most diamond websites, we do not buy our stones from other wholesalers. We work in collaboration with our sister company, a wholesaler and a jewellery manufacturer itself. Our sister company buys large quantities of stones which gives us huge negotiation power with our suppliers and enables us to obtain the best possible price for our gems. The introduction and the incredible growth of the internet gave us the opportunity to shorten the supply chain and reach our customers directly, eliminating the need for a middle man and enabling us to pass our savings directly on to you. We take pride in ensuring that your purchases will be of the highest quality and value for money.
What if I do not like the design or wish to return my purchase?
Cadeau di Sequino Gianpaolo offers a 30 day money back guarantee (see our refund policy). You can have a full refund or you are welcome to exchange it for something else more to your liking.

What is the difference between white gold and platinum?
Platinum is a natural white metal. To achieve "white" gold - yellow gold is mixed with other metals to make it whiter and is often plated with rhodium to achieve its shiny white surface. Over time white gold might begin to yellow and may require re-plating to regain its white colour. Platinum weighs about 40 % more than white gold as it is a denser metal. Both platinum and gold can be scratched and neither are indestructible. Over time platinum develops a matte finish but if you prefer the high-finish look, regular polishing by a professional can maintain this finish.
What is my ring size?
