Scott has been in the industry for many years & has always had a fascination with diamonds and elegant design. He started his career in a little jewellers shop on K'Road in December 2002. From humble beginnings sweeping the floors & learning how to do ring sizings & rolling out metal, Scott quickly moved into designing engagement jewellery & diamond jewellery.
Scotty then spent several years designing for some of New Zealand's biggest diamond jewellers & discovered his niche:
"I found there's a real gap in the market for custom one off designed pieces. Anyone can walk into a shop & buy a ring off the shelf… But what I like to do, is design specifically for each individual client, & tailoring each design to suit them perfectly."
"Last year I proposed to my beautiful fiancée with an equally beautiful emerald cut diamond engagement ring. Scotty took my ideas and turned them into a one off designer rock.
I was very excited about proposing and getting the right ring. Scotty was energetic, discreet and the end product is magnificent! He even organized the ring to be delivered to the airport so that we could claim the gst and enjoy a celebratory engagement holiday. Annelise gets a huge amount of admiration for her ring every day and I think that speaks volumes for the Culét design.
Stoked heaps, cheers for your help!

We're delighted to refer you to our friends and family and to write a testimony to your fabulous approach and amazing skill in sourcing stones, creating designs and manufacturing the best engagement ring we could have hoped for.
We undertook this project together as we wanted to find a ring that we loved (semi-old fashioned and feminine) said the right things ("taken" and "Loved" so "hands off" J and was the best value we could get for our money. We also wanted to share the experience about learning about diamonds, metals, settings, cuts, and what ideas we liked.
Ultimately (Scotty) you were great to work with and you created exactly what we dreamed of and started our formal (engaged) relationship in the best possible way.

Culét were absolutely amazing to deal with, every part of the process was a pleasure, they we're so informative with choosing the right diamonds, and made the design process very easy, my partner and I would recommend Culét to anyone, they went above and beyond for us and we couldn't be happier!
