Alice Herald and the team at 1791 were fantastic. Over a period of about 6 months, and many emails they designed and crafted a ring which far exceeded all my (and my now Fiancee's) expectations. Their commitment to establishing a rapport with their clients to ensure satisfaction is unique and matched only by the quality of their finished product. My sincere thanks to all involved.
It is nerve-racking to purchase something like an engagement ring online - but once you get passed that you'll be well rewarded by 1791 Diamond! The customer service, the design input and the quality of the end product were all excellent - especially the end product! I've just had the ring independently valued for insurance and was gobsmacked to find they priced it at well over a third again what I paid for it, they also noted that the craftsmanship was excellent. I'll be coming back to 1791 for the wedding rings and if any of my friends look like they're about to go diamond ring shopping I'll be pointing them in 1791's direction
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.
