Since our founding in 1864, responsibility has lay at the heart
of all we do, fusing life’s most treasured emotions, integrity
and love, as one to bring pride to the owner of a Partridge
piece. Established in 2003, the Kimberley Process unites 81
countries under a transparent regime, monitoring diamonds from
mine to market to prevent the supply of conflict diamonds. In
supporting only reputable diamond dealers, working under the
terms of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, Partridge
Jewellers are proud to have contributed to the elimination of
99.8% of conflict diamond production globally.
Recognised as one of New Zealand’s premier jewellers for over 150 years, Partridge Jewellers are proud to be the Nations exclusive stockists for some of the world’s most rare and coveted specialty diamonds for creating a piece that is truly unique and special.
In our pursuit of quality and excellence, Partridge Jewellers
solely supply Internationally certified diamonds and gemstones,
each with their own certificate of authenticity. With every
diamond carrying a unique set of characteristics, the
Gemological Institute of America (GIA) introduced a grading
system in the 1950’s known as the 4C’s, using four important
factors to classify the quality of a finished diamond; Clarity,
Colour, Cut and Carat Weight.
All diamonds carry internal features such as inclusions and
surface irregularities. The GIA clarity scale (made up of
flawless, internally flawless, very very slightly included,
very slightly included, slightly included and included),
refers to the relative absence of these features. In colour,
diamonds range from colourless (D, E and F) to light yellow
(S, T, U and below). At Partridge, we take pride in our
diamonds, working exclusively with stones meeting an array of
strictly excellent quality determinants, ensuring all diamonds
are colourless and range from flawless to slightly included in

Recognising the importance of true diamond quality, and in our pursuit to create only the most beautiful of creations for our customers, Partridge Jewellers work with a unique and extensive range of incredible stones sourced from around the world to suit the needs of every piece.
The Cut of the diamond is an assessment of a diamond’s
Proportions and Finish.
A diamond’s colour grade is assessed by comparing it with
master diamonds of known colour grades. Truly colourless
diamonds are very rare.
Clarity is the measure of included features of a diamond.
A carat is the metric unit used to measure a diamond’s weight.
