The Holloway



Holloway diamond™ Explained

Holloway diamond™ Selection Criteria

Holloway Diamonds Jewellery Spa

We believe in and commit to creating beautiful things in a beautiful way for today and for future generations.

Holloway Diamonds is a rare breed of jewellers in that we choose to manage the quality of our workmanship and products in-house. We also hand-select all of our stones which is why we stand behind our products with a Holloway diamond™


Our Canterbury and Brighton stores offer you specialised expert service through designers, jewellers, setters, gemmologists and valuers working as a team under one roof. When you visit our stores always make an appointment with our team. We love the fact that we have this level of expertise to consult with you about your jewellery. Even if it’s an item in stock our team can still walk you through the process so you understand the approach that goes into every piece that wears the Holloway Diamonds signature.

Note: We do keep the Holloway Original Designs in stock simply because they are favourites and we aim to keep up with the demand.

You will find only natural diamonds and gems in all of our jewels. Why is this? Apart from the sparkle of natural beauty, we stand behind our quality and offer a trade-up service giving you full credit for what you paid for a Holloway diamond™. That’s why we don’t sell Lab Grown Diamonds (LGD). They keep falling in value by about 20% a year.

WHY IS  Holloway diamond™ IMPORTANT?

A diamond that is selected as a  Holloway diamond™ can be traded up in full for the value you paid for the diamond to go toward another beautiful design.

What this means is that when you buy a Holloway diamond™  diamond, you are making a guaranteed investment in a true quality stone. We will gladly take this diamond back at the full value you paid for the stone and put it towards the investment of a bigger trade-up stone.
