@memmielee:  My fiance purchased my antique e-ring from a private seller on ebay. The seller was located in New York, and we’re located in Michigan. He purchased the ring and had it shipped to his work. After he proposed, we had it appraised and sized. The appraised value came back more than double what he paid for it (!!!!). The stones in the ring arent the clearest, some of them have a yellow tin to them, some of them look darker in certain lighting (they’re old mine cut diamonds), but I love it! The ring also doesnt have perfect proportions, either, and I am also okay with that since it’s an antique and I know it was hand crafted by someone in the 1920s. 

If I were you: purchase the ring, have it appraised, and then decide what you want to do (send it back, ask for some money back if it appraises way lower than what you/FI paid, etc.)
