I had something specific in mind for my wife to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, and 1791 couldn't have made it easier. I told Designer Alice roughly what I was after and within a day I had a beautiful rendered image of the ring design sitting on my desktop that you could have sworn was a photo of the real thing. So from idea to reality in about 48 hours, not bad! We were easily able to make a couple of small design tweaks, and the result was stunning. Right through the process from design to the paperwork afterwards was a pleasure and I would highly recommend 1791 to anyone looking for value for money and an outstanding result. I know my wife loved it :)
Right from my first enquiry, the 1791 team impressed me with their care for detail and willingness to go to extra effort to provide quality service. I am living overseas but wanted a New Zealand made engagement ring for my Fiance. Ardouin from Customer Services organised the shipping and tackled the challenging French customs systems to get the ring safely across to the other side of the world. When it arrived it was perfectly crafted and beautifully designed. I needed to resize the ring and again Ardouin organised everything for the ring to be resized in Europe by a trusted jeweller. Throughout the entire process comunication was fantastic, even across so many timezones, and I felt completely at ease that the ring was safe. My fiance loves the ring and we will be in touch again soon to choose our wedding bands from 1791.
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!
