Posted September 29, 2018 11:25:10 If you are a ring collector and have spent some time browsing for the perfect pieces, it might be worth your while to check out the site of jewellery dealer Nick Waggoner.
Mr Waggner is known as the man behind the famous Diamond Ring and Diamond Dime ring collections.
Since he began his career in the 1980s, he has collected more than 100,000 pieces and sold them for a whopping $200 million.
He was one of the first to introduce the diamond ring, but now he is famous for helping to popularise the diamond dimes and rings category.
The popularisation of the dimes has allowed for a resurgence in the jewellery market, with many collectors now opting to buy rings as part of a bigger collection.
But Mr Waggon said he was not surprised by the popularity of the diamond rings category and said the majority of his customers were not collectors but had come to collect.
“It’s not the collectors who are getting into the diamond jewelry market, it’s the younger generation of people,” he said.
“I see a lot of older people wanting a diamond ring as well.”
They like the fact that the diamonds are not too big and they don’t need to put them in a fancy case.
“Mr Woggon said the Diamond Ring collection was a big reason why he was able to sell so many pieces at a time.”
We sell out a lot quicker than other jewelers do,” he explained.”
Most of the time, when we sell out, we get orders for about 20 rings.
“So we’re still getting a little bit of a trickle down from the older people who are buying these rings.”
When you order a ring at the Diamond Rings website, you can choose from three options: an antique-looking antique ring, a modern-looking diamond ring or a vintage-looking modern ring.
“For a lot the younger people we get, the modern ring is a little more interesting because it has a little less of a dangle,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.
“The old ring will have a little little bit more of a pendulum and that’s why the old ring looks a little better.”
The vintage-style ring has a more traditional look, and is much more expensive.
“That’s because the dents on the old rings are quite noticeable, so it’s very hard to get a modern vintage ring with them,” Mr Woggan said.
The majority of the rings that Mr Wagons sells at the site are either vintage or contemporary, and are also a big hit with the younger buyers.
“As a matter of fact, one of my biggest selling points is the vintage ring.
They look like a vintage vintage vintage, with a vintage design,” he added.
Mr Nick said he also had a big list of vintage rings that he was selling.
“A lot of the younger collectors that we have sold are buying them because they’re looking for a little something different,” he joked.
“Because they know they’re getting something really special, a vintage ring.”
Mr Nick, who is also the founder of the Australian Diamond Ring Museum, said that the younger crowd was looking to get something unique and unique in their ring.
