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.
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 :)
Aura Diamond Ring Review
The Aura ring showcases the unique qualities of the marquise diamond. This cut is said to have been commissioned by Louis XIV to commemorate the smile of his beloved Marquise de Pompadour, and it certainly adds a note of distinction to the Aura design.
The distinctive shape of the marquise diamond offers a stunning alternative to the traditional diamond shapes. It is an impressive looking stone and with its pointed edges at each end can often appear a larger carat weight than it is due, which can certainly be an advantage for the buyer. Its elongated shape is particularly suited to someone with slender fingers.
In the Aura design the marquise diamond is held in place in a Bezel setting. While this holds the diamond securely in place it can seem quite a plain setting. The sublime bead set rose gold wires entwined around the top of the ring band add a more decorative aspect to the Aura design.
The delicate colors of the rose gold wires and the champagne side stones blend beautifully and add warmth to this exquisite design.
