About - Time For Diamonds

Time for Diamonds is a beautifully presented jewellery shop located in Ashburton. We are large enough to stock an extensive range, yet small enough to bring you a very personal service.

Time for Diamonds believe in the quality of the products we sell, and the quality of service we provide. If you have a specific design for a piece of jewellery, or would like some assistance in creating your own design, please speak to one of our staff. We have access to internet design sites, and the services of a highly skilled jewellery manufacturer.
