I was skeptical at first, buying from an online shop and all, however the team at 1791 were absolutely fantastic to deal with, they let me go into the jewelers shop where the ring was being made and I felt comfortable the whole way through the process. Their rings are made from the picture you see on the website and what you see there is what you get, which is very cool. The various payment options made paying for the ring easy, I only had to make a 20% deposit before I got the ring, and now I'm paying it off interest free in 4 month by month payments. I would recommend 1791 to anyone looking at buying rings as they have any ring made is made specifically for you and you know that the rings aren't being produced in bulk like other well known jeweler brands. Thank you 1791 for such an easy, stress free option of sorting out a ring - lets hope the rest of the process goes to plan!!
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!
Elena Diamond Ring Review
Elena, from 1791 Diamonds' Modena Collection, showcases a lovely example of the fabulous fire and brilliance, or sparkle, of well cut diamonds. The 'fire' refers to the rainbow effect that you get from the white light in a diamond. The 'brilliance' refers to the white light you see when looking at a diamond. It is the quality of the cut which largely determines how well a diamond will sparkle.
1791 Diamonds only use 'Excellent' and 'Very Good' cut diamonds in their diamond engagement rings so you can be assured that whatever stye of ring you choose, from a single solitaire to a multi-stone ring, the scintillation will be fabulous.
Elena is a glamorous multi-stone ring featuring a sparkling princess diamond for the centre stone with gorgeous smaller princess diamonds channel set into the shoulders. Because princess diamonds are square shaped, they can be aligned with hardly any gap between them so the effect is a shimmering line of brilliant diamonds along the shoulders of the ring, drawing the eye to the magnificent centre stone. The traditional four-prong setting for the centre stone adds an elegant touch to the ring without drawing attention away from the diamonds.
The Elena design exudes a sophisticated and radiant glamour and will appeal to those who are not afraid to indulge.
