Buying from 1791Diamonds online was very easy and straight-forward. It made organising an engagement ring at the last minute (as my original jeweler fell through) while doing a fly in fly out a possibility. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. They did everything possible to get me my engagement ring on time. Once I had received the ring it was a happy response. 1791 were only too happy to receive the ring back through the post for a re-size. This was a process that was suprisingly quick and it was sent straight back to me. All in all, 1791 were a delight to deal with and went out of their way to make an already very exciting time just that little bit easier.
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!
1791 Solitaire Engagement Ring Review
The 1791 Solitaire is a stunning six claw solitaire diamond ring with stylish shoulders giving it an overall regal look. The centre stone is a spectacular round brilliant which will not fail to impress with its characteristic sparkle.
While solitaire diamond rings are a popular choice for engagement rings, and round brilliants a particular favourite largely due to their fantastic fire and brilliance, the 1791 Solitaire is set apart by its stylish six claw setting.
The ring setting is an important consideration when selecting your ideal style of diamond engagement ring and should not be overlooked. One advantage of a six claw setting over a four claw setting is that the diamond is held more securely. At the same time, having more claws means that the individual claws can be finer, more delicate and less intrusive; whereas the four claw setting usually requires each claw to be slightly thicker to ensure the diamond is held securely in place.
You have a choice of metals for your ring: 18kt yellow gold, 18kt white gold or platinum. There's very little price difference between the two types of gold but platinum does increase the overall cost of your ring as it is a more expensive metal than gold. By all means base your choice on aesthetic appeal, you may simply prefer the natural look of yellow gold, but also keep in mind that platinum is the most hard wearing of these metals and is also hypo-allergenic.
