As with any purchase over the internet there is always some anxiety as to the finished product but any fears disappeared the moment I opened the box.
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!
Orlo Diamond Ring Review
A marquise diamond is the perfect choice for anyone looking to step away from conventional or traditional diamond ring designs. The Orlo design from 1791 Diamonds emphasises the distinguished look of this exceptional diamond shape and offers a sophisticated and unique sense of style.
The marquise diamond has a dynamic oval shape leading to a dramatic point at each end. In the Orlo design the diamond's sharp angles are matched by a knife edge ring shank. The cut out detail below the diamond setting adds an intriguing design feature while drawing further attention to the knife edge shank.
A line of side stones encircles the center stone and mirrors the shape of the diamond with a sharp point at each side. The side stones flash with diamond fire adding intensity to the brilliant sparkle of the marquise.
A bezel setting holds the center stone in place. The metal rim surrounding the diamond complements, rather than conceals the unique shape of the diamond and provides a particularly secure setting.
