Lot 324: Canadian Heart-Shaped Diamond Ring.

So you finally decided to pop the question. But before you get down on one knee, you need to find the perfect ring for your proposal. This is perhaps one of the most important purchases you will ever make – talk about pressure!

While choosing the right engagement ring can seem an almost impossible task, it can also be a memorable experience, especially if you opt to forego the retail route, and the added hassle of dealing with pushy sales people, and instead buy a one-of-a-kind piece at a jewellery auction.

Shop at an auction, expand your options

Buying your engagement ring at an auction is accessible no matter what your preferences or budget. In fact, you can expect to pay considerably less than you would shopping at a traditional bricks-and-mortar jewellery store. You can feel confident knowing you’re getting the most bling for your buck. Got a question? Staff are onsite with spec and tech info.

In addition to great value, the selection of engagement rings available at an auction is unrivalled. Whether your soon-to-be fiancé prefers vintage opulence or understated modern elegance, you’re bound to come across a unique style that pleases them – and your wallet.

How does buying at Dupuis work?

Here at Dupuis Fine Jewellery Auctioneers, there are many ways to bid when buying jewellery at auction. We suggest attending the live auction for the experience; however, you can also bid live online or over the phone. You can view the lots ahead of time in our gallery showroom or with our searchable online catalogue. All condition reports for each piece are easy to access, too.
