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!
When my husband finally popped the question, I admit I was a bit relieved that he didn't already have the ring as I had spotted one on the Internet that I really liked. I was very wary about buying a ring off the net but it really was nicest ring I had seen. So I plucked up the courage and rang 1791's customer's services. Ardouin was just fantastic not only did she answer all our questions; she reassured us that the company was real and what we could do to check.
The ring making was quite a personal process, selecting your own diamond, progress reports on its creation and in no real time at all, it's delivery. I feel like my ring is really mine.
Now I'm the proud owner of my stunning ring and with a wedding band to match that they made for us at the same time.
1791 I love my ring and I wish I needed another, but maybe earrings!!!!
