One of the most popular industries in the world is jewellery and in Melbourne it is no exception. People wear jewellery for a number of reasons. Some wear it because they like how it looks, others because it makes them feel good and boosts self esteem. It can also be seen as a status symbol, which is never more evident than with diamond engagement rings. How many carats is yours?
