Quality Diamonds

Amazing value for money with quality and customer service to boot!

Around 7 years ago me and my partner got engaged, we visited QD at their office in Milton Keynes, it was a new experience for us as we traditionally bought from the main high street jewellers, with glass cabinets and bright lighting to lure you in. I wanted to spend a decent amount on a ring but the traditional jewellers have such a high mark up that you did not get much for your money. They rely on the trust factor meaning that you will tend to buy from these shops as you know that what you are sold is genuine. I bought a one carat D colour diamond with a GIA certificate for around £5300, the same stone 7 years later will now cost you £10,000.It has been independently valued to confirm its authenticity but demonstrates that QD does indeed offer outstanding value for money. A month ago I purchased two wedding bands (yes I know I've dragged it out a little) the bands were platinum, a 3mm and a 5mm traditional court heavy design, as the high street stores do not quote the weight, you cannot really tell what you are getting for your money. I called a few jewellers and managed to get one in Wilmslow to provide a weight so I could see what I was getting for my money, on a cost per gram basis the high street jewellers were £140, whereas the QD price worked out at £65 per gram, less than half the price! We chose to visit their office in Hatton Garden as we were in London for a few days and were measured up for sizes, the service was amazing as 5 days later the rings arrived registered post, they were perfect. Ok so you might not be offered a glass of wine in the office or some pretty box with a bow on to put your ring in, but what you do get is amazing quality at a fantastic price. I have recommended QD to everyone I know as my two purchases (albeit with a seven year gap) have been incredible. Do not be put off by buying rings and jewellery online from someone like QD, its not about being cheap, but with the quality and service to back it up, I would rather put the savings we made towards our honeymoon, rather than the high street jewellers Christmas bonus!

Bambino Direct

great price, great delivery, everything you are looking for when buying online!

As Argos had run out of the trampolines they were advertising at half price I decided to look elsewhere and saw the same model at Bambino Direct for the same price without the Argos half price gimmicks.
Order it and it arrived a few days later, it weighs a great deal but the postage was only a fiver, which it woudl have cost me to collect it from Argos, plus the hassle of loading it up and getting it out the other end.
Really pleased and woudl reccommend Bambino Direct to anyone looking for a similar product at a good price with a great service and delivery experience.

great knowledge and excellent service make Ceiling Speakers an esasy choice

Called to check some tech details and got put through to their tech guy who kindly spent around 10 minutes on the phone talking through various options until deciding on a pair of monitor audios. highly recommended!


great advice, great choice of products, really fast service, you may only purchase light switches every now and again, but they really are good at what they do.

Was unsure about which products to use, how they worked, would they fit in to my existing units etc, one phone call and some good advice later I placed my order and within 48 hours the units arrived, really pleased with their performance and after sales advise was welcomed.


superb quality products

ordered chrome hinges after receiving some advice over the phone from the helpful customer service lady, not the cheapest of hinges, but the quality is excellent, far better than anything close to the price from the usual DIY shops, definately a specialist item which is best catered for through web sites like this.


outstanding levels of service

For good quality curtain poles you need to spend a little more, cheap is OK, but it's never going to look amazing. I was talked through each option by a friendly and helpful chap who spent as much time as I needed to ensure I got just what I wanted, the order arrived promptly and the quality was very impressive, we have a whole house to do as we've just moved in, I will certainly be ordering more poles and fittings from Simply curtain poles.
