Testimonials: Diamond Rings
It was so easy using the 1791 online store. The staff were so helpful, they helped me design the perfect ring. The ring arrived on time and it was exactly what I wanted. My fiancee loves the ring, she said yes!
1791 created the perfect engagement ring for me to propose with; and without ever meeting a single one of their team face to face! From the first moment I saw their website I was confident that they could do exactly what I wanted, even though I didn't know quite what that was at the time. Alice took time to understand the look and feel of what I wanted and quickly came up with concepts that were beautifully tailored to suit. Discussing my chosen design with her later, I couldn't even find any changes I wanted to make. After some much needed help on getting the right diamond and ring size (thanks Ardouin), my design was crafted into the perfect ring. The team at 1791 even disguised the packaging to ensure it remained a surprise right until the last moment. And of course she said yes!
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!
