I was incredibly excited to start unwrapping our rings when they arrived yesterday! The packaging is lovely, the information and letter from Alice Herald is great and very helpful. But the rings! They are beautiful! I am going to find it very hard to resist wearing mine before our wedding! Beautifully delicate, but simple. Just how we envisioned our rings to be.
I was recommended your site by my Maid of Honour as she knows of another couple who have sung high praises of 1791 Diamonds. And I'll be joining that chorus with sharing the positive, consistent, friendly and amazing service you offer. Your rings are divine!
Thank you, Erika, for your amazing help throughout this whole process. Usually all things wedding related are meant to be stressful - but you have definitely eliminated that element for us when it has come to buying our wedding rings :)
My experience with 1791 was perfect. I found the whole website easy to use and love the fact you can pick and choose what ring you like and what diamond as well. I was a little unsure with what I was buying without seeing it first hand although when I spoke to a 1791 representative her recommendation was clear and very informative. Delivery of the ring was excellent and the whole process was very simple. When the ring arrived it was better than I imagined.
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.
