I just wanted to give a big thank you for all the work on the ring - it looked even better than I thought it would and my now fiancee loved it!!! The timing was pretty incredible too, as I had planned to go ahead and propose on friday night, without a ring (controversially!) but then to have the ring finished early and literally hours in before the deed was great! So thanks Alice for all your work on the ring and everyone for being cheerful and helpful and encouraging throughout, I appreciate it all!
I would like to thank Ardouin and 1791 Diamonds who made buying an engagement ring online special. They delivered me expert and trustworthy advice in a simple manner that I could understand. Using their recommendations on the final colour, clarity and cut made for a great ring and a very happy lady. I am not one for words but rather actions and you can guarantee that I will be using 1791 site and service again.
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!
