Sally Ryder grew up on a chicken farm in Red Hill on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, Australia. A childhood she cherishes with fond memories. With a father who was an international airline pilot, her family spent many years in Asia during her teenage years. After graduating with a degree in Arts and Business, Sally moved to Hong Kong in 2005 with a dream to create a unique shopping experience for discerning clients looking to create fine diamond jewellery.
Sally has always been passionate about reviving the dying art of hand craftsmanship in diamond jewellery. Ryder Diamonds is the only bespoke jeweller in Hong Kong with an on-site studio where the city’s most talented and highly skilled master craftsmen custom make each piece. The attention to detail in design and quality craftsmanship is the key to beautiful diamond jewellery and Sally is dedicated to using time-honoured techniques to keep the artistry in hand-making fine diamond jewellery alive. Her customers are invited to come behind the scenes and see their piece being created at the workbenches of the Sifu (that's the Master Jeweller in Cantonese), an experience that few jewellery buyers are allowed witness.
With an extensive network of trusted suppliers, Ryder offers clients access to superior, ethically sourced diamonds at the most competitive prices in town. Ryder believes in empowering clients by educating them on the diamond buying process. Sally hosts Diamond Masterclasses to help ease customers into the bespoke diamond jewellery experience.
Sally is a mother of two children, Jack and Charli. Her next passion project is creating an online marketplace for the trade of second-hand diamonds. Watch this space!
