I received my ring this morning it's beautiful. I absolutely love it, can't stop staring at it! So pleased, it will take a very long time for this smile to fade!
Wanted to thank the whole team for all their parts in getting it to me, the help, advice and re assurance via e-mail which I have received. A very BIG thank you to you all
From a very very happy and pleased customer.
The staff at 1791 were very helpful to me. Spending a large amount of money on something that I had very little knowledge of was quite daunting. Not to mention that I also wanted to choose something that would suit my girlfriend. 1791 helped explain the various technical aspects of diamond jewellery, and also helped suggest styles for my girlfriend.
1791 were happy to customise the ring for me. I was very impressed that a computer rendering of what the ring would look like was sent to me. It was helpful to see how the finished ring would look.
I'm very happy to say that my girlfriend loves the ring.
Duchess Engagement Ring Review
Simple elegance defines the Duchess diamond engagement ring from 1791 Diamonds. The Duchess features a lovely marquise diamond set across a band of either 18kt yellow gold, 18kt white gold or platinum.
The distinctive oval shape of the marquise diamond offers a stunning alternative to the traditional round brilliant diamond shape for diamond engagement rings and is particularly well suited to someone with long, slender fingers. An added advantage of this fancy cut is a marquise diamond tends to emphasize its carat weight, making it appear much larger than it actually is; the result is a striking diamond ring for less cost than other traditional diamond cuts.
The marquise diamond cut is said to have been commissioned by Louis XIV to commemorate the smile of his beloved Marquise de Pompadour, and the Duchess design certainly encapsulates a regal and romantic air.
