Testimonials: Diamond Rings
James & Donna D
It was wonderful when James asked me to marry him, but was a surprise that he had chosen a gorgeous ring that was stylish, classic and beautiful, really a reflection of my personality and of our love together. We are now planning a wedding, which we hope that you can help us with our ring selection for that special day.
After spending several weeks trawling through the internet looking at engagement rings I finally settled on the Ignite in Platinum from 1791 Diamonds. I just loved its minimalistic design and, as my partner works with her hands, I am sure that she too will appreciate the gorgeous low profile design! 1791 kept me informed of progress throughout the entire process and I can only say that many businesses, both online and store based, would do well to follow the customer service example set by 1791 Diamonds. Thank you to the Sales Manager for your help in the initial selection and purchase, the Customer Services Manager for your communications during the manufacture and delivery and last, but not least, to Alice Herald for your stunning design!
I was all set to buy a ring from a well known UK high street chain, not knowing anything much about diamonds. I just happened to stumble across 1791 Diamonds whilst searching Yahoo, and I'm glad I did. Their website was very informative about the 4 C's and showed me what I ought to have been looking at. I found a gorgeous ring and then picked my own diamond to put in it, having weighed up all the options. It turns out that although I've spent roughly the same as I would have in the high street shop, I have a much better diamond in terms of colour, clarity and cut. The staff at 1791 are very helpful indeed, and keep you informed of what's going on.
They also offer a free re-sizing service which is included in the price of your ring. All in all, I was very impressed with the whole experience, particularly as they met a very tight deadline in getting the finished product to me. Oh, and of course the most important thing...? She said "yes", and absolutely LOVED the ring.
I can't recommend the team at 1791 Diamonds enough - they guide you through the whole ring-selection process, making it as easy and enjoyable as possible. They give you updates along the way, and go out of their way to satisfy requests, answer questions and resolve any issues that pop up. I really appreciated the lengths they went to so I could get an idea of how the ring would look on my finger, with photos and detailed measurements. From the very first time I spoke to Ardouin on the phone, I realised how passionate they are about what they do, and knew that I had found the right people to make my perfect ring. The fact that they take such pride and pleasure in helping couples get rings they love really makes 1791 stand out above the rest. Thanks so much to the whole team, I'm excited to wear this beauty on my finger for the rest of my life!
Ignite Diamond Ring Review
Ignite, from the 1791 Diamonds Modena collection, offers a graceful alternative to traditional solitaire diamond engagement rings. With the diamonds channel set into a gorgeous platinum band the design is simple, almost understated, yet lacks nothing in elegance.
As the name Ignite suggests, the diamonds sparkle with fire and brilliance, creating a fabulous wave of shimmering light which is offset perfectly by the rich platinum. The effect is one of tasteful opulence; it is quietly chic rather than fabulously ostentatious.
The channel setting means that the diamonds are securely nestled within the band and there is little danger of losing them for those who lead active, outdoor lifestyles or play a lot of sport. The platinum band is also more hard wearing than traditional gold bands so, again, will appeal to those who work with their hands, as well as those who simply appreciate the exquisite white lustre of platinum.
The Ignite design stands apart from traditional engagement rings with its distinct style. It is not awe inspiring in the manner of large, flashy solitaire diamonds, but nor does it pretend to be. With its clean lines this design offers simple and graceful beauty.
