Hey chaps,

I’m Alastair and I’m an English guy currently living in Australia.  When I decided to pop the question to my now-wife, Faith, I couldn’t find any honest help to stop me getting ripped off anywhere.

So I spent 6 months researching, looked on 3 continents, got inside info from 2 jewellers and 1 gemologist and in the end got an awesome ring for a great price. I nailed it.

This site includes everything I learnt then and much much more. Have a look around, read the blogs, check out my free eBook and learn how to get a great engagement ring at an awesome price.
