It seemed a little risky at first to buy a ring on-line but I was quickly assured after the first time I spoke to you about the guarantee. I really appreciated how accommodating you were with my special requests for the delivery of my ring to be available for when my fiance (now husband) was visiting me in New Zealand. The whole process was seamless.
As I began to delve into the multiple layers of well packaged merchandise I started to feel like I was playing "pass the parcel" at a birthday party!
First the plastic envelope... RIP
Then another layer of plastic wrap... RIP
Then a few layers of bubble-wrap... tossed over my head
Then a big dark blue 1791 box (delicately saved for re-packing purposes)
Then a smaller dark blue 1791 box (again saved for re-packing)
Then a small ring box... which refused to open until I realized it had a tiny (maybe child resistant) lock..
Followed by the Mother Lode! WOW!
Thank you for such a nice piece of art. one that she will never see in a Michael Hill store!
Pero Diamond Ring Review
A single beautiful solitaire diamond can make a stunning statement for an engagement ring; remember, though, that your choice of diamond need not be restricted to the traditional round brilliant. Pero from 1791 Diamonds offers a striking alternative with a lovely pear diamond.
The pear, with its elegant tear drop shape, is a brilliant cut diamond and is half oval and half marquise and therefore offers a fabulous display of fire and brilliance. All 1791 diamonds are of either Excellent or Very Good cut - the very top cut grades - so you can be assured that your diamond will not show signs of the "bow tie" effect which can occur in some elongated fancy shaped diamonds. This is a dark area in the shape of a bow tie that occurs when the angles of the diamond cut are not optimum.
Some of the world's most valuable diamonds have been cut into the pear shape and have been the choice of the rich and famous. The best known is probably the 69 carat Taylor-Burton pear shaped diamond given by Richard Burton to Elizabeth Taylor. The Pero is certainly a glamorous diamond engagement ring, but rest assured, you will do not need to pay millions for this gorgeous ring!
