Ok…. so we have been engaged for 20 months… initially I had my engagement ring from Michael Hill jewellers, we paid $4000 AUD…. within 5 weeks the first diamond fell out…. Ofcourse I got a completely NEW ring…. 20 months on and my FOURTH REPLACEMENT ring has just had ANOTHER diamond fall out and I hit the roof and got a full refund on not only the engagement ring but also my wedding band and eternity band. A total of almost $7000 RRP. HERES MY PROBLEM>>>> I get married in 10 weeks!! I visited alot of chain store jewellers to find that what I wanted just didnt exist in my price range… so after OODLES of research I discovered, blunile.com jamesallen.com and zoara.com
Holy crap Im considering buying my rings ONLINE!!!!!
All have rave reviews, all have amazing rings and after hours and HOURS and DAYS of trying to decide I settled on an amazing set from zoara.com
They have empty settings that you can choose, and then you can choose the diamond that suits your budget. I was able to purchase a 1ct J colour, Excellent cut, SI1 clarity Radiant cut diamond, The ring itself was $2084 AUD, the diamond $2548, and then the matching bands were $950 each. What I got for my money from ZOARA far far faaaaaar exceeds anything even CLOSE to what I could have achieved from Michael Hil Jeweller! It also comes with a grading report from GIA and a valuation report or insurance. ALSO i just flat out asked the customer service 24-7 chat team…. “hay can I have a discount?” the nice guy gave me $700 off!!! WERHOO!! thanks mate!
You also have 90 days to return the ring if you are not happy. I THINK THATS GREAT!!
Also the fact I am on a tight 10 week timeline till our big day, I was AMAZED that my ring should be here in Australia, from the USA in around 2 weeks tops! Again AMAZED! Ill show pics of my crappy ring and my new jewels that I am utterly INLOVE with.
Has anyone else ordered from ZOARA? Or any online jeweller? what was youur thoughts and pics?? 🙂
the following is the crappy MH ring. Obviously way cheaper looking with its 4 stones in the centre.

chantelle.jenkins: My ring is the same as your old one. The 4 stones in the middle annoy me so much. I wish I had the same problem as you with the stones falling out so that I could demand a refund and get a new ring from ZOARA too! Your new ring is sooo pretty!

chantelle.jenkins: Hello aussie bee!
I’m not engaged yet, but have been looking at rings.. Man, we get charged a lot down under! I’ve spend plenty of time on both the aussie chain store websites, as well as blue nile and james allen, but I haven’t been on Zoara.. I look forward to seeing how your ring comes out!
Also, do you mind keeping me in the loop with taxes when the ring comes into the country? I’ve heard some conflicting information about what percentage needs to be paid to import the ring.

He purchased my ER from James Allen. I did tons of reashearch to insure he got the best bang for his buck. We absolutely love the quality of the product, stayed in budget, and I’m completely satisfied. Congrats on the engagement and best of luck (∩_∩)

diddles112230: OMG fellow Aussie bee feeling your diamond pain! Just wanted to empathise. I don’t even have that expensive taste, I just don’t feel like we get our moneys worth in the chain stores. If I’m spending $5000 on a ring, I expect my ring to look like it’s worth $5000.
