Ryder Story

Meet founder and CEO Sally Ryder

Ryder Story - About Us

Born from a true passion for the art of jewellery making, and a zealotry for rare diamond gemstones, Sally Ryder left her career in finance to start a new life as one of Hong Kong’s most respected diamond merchants.

Witnessing the slow death of fine jewellery making in well-known diamond ateliers, Sally, spurred by a desire to keep the art of craftsmanship alive, opened her own workshop with an emphasis on a unique service of reinterpreting time honoured tradition and client personalisation. Selecting only the best craftsmen with exceptional skill in stone setting and jewellery making, Sally has focused on attracting Hong Kong’s most talented artisan jewellers. No moulds or casts in site, Ryder’s jewellers are highly skilled in the art of hand making truly beautiful diamond jewellery.


Slowly building her trusted network of diamond suppliers, Sally now holds a little black book of some of the world’s best. Combined with an artistic vision, a creative eye, and a personalised touch, the world of Ryder is one to be experience and enjoyed.

Trust is the most valuable commodity in the jewellery industry, that is why we make it our mission to educate all of our clients.
