She absolutely loves the ring and everyone she has shown is raving about it. I can not thank you both enough for all you did in helping me so much with every aspect of the ring.
We are expecting to tie the not towards the end of 2014 and will defiantly have the other rings made with you so that can match the exquisite beauty of the engagement ring.
Thank you again so very, very much. I will be sending as many people as possible your way.
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!
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.
