"Vandenbergs is interested in a long term relationship with us, not just one quick sale. This is proven as we have come in many many times for a ring cleaning and every experience was amazing."
Edmonton’s longest-standing Graduate Gemologist, Ralph Vandenberg has travelled the world honing his craft. And whether he’s visiting the renowned DeBeers diamond mines in Botswana, brokering diamond agreements in London and Antwerp or haggling over the latest bounty of sapphires in the cutting rooms of Mumbai, India – Ralph is always on the lookout for the gems that will make his clients’ dreams come true.
As the owner and lead designer at Vandenbergs, Ralph carries on the rich tradition established by his father when the company opened its doors in 1976. This modest family business in Capilano Mall was where, as a young man, Ralph worked as a part-time salesman and learned the gem business from the inside out. His passion, creativity and love for beautiful stones led him to the prestigious Gemological Institute of America in California – the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls. Ralph graduated in residence as a Graduate Gemologist and furthered his skills by graduating from the Institute’s jewellery design school. Edmonton is able to boast that Ralph is now one of the most experienced and travelled jewellery and gem specialists in North America.
Join Ralph as he retells 40 years of treasure hunting in the Vandenberg Diaries. Whether he’s bartering for emeralds in the wilds of Brazil or negotiating deals in the backrooms of De Beers in Botswana, you’re sure to be entertained.
