A lot of you will probably call me crazy, but: I found this ring on Etsy that I am just awed by and kind of in love with. It’s different, edgy (imo), totally me….BUT also WAY out of our budget!! (FI plans to replace my current ering with a set for our anniversary in March since we can’t find a band to work with it, current ering will become a rhr because I love it too much to totally part with it.)
Sorry if the pictures below are huge, I took them straight from Etsy. In all it’s glory:
So do any of you bee’s think I have any chance of finding something similar? Or if there is a jewler out there that would even try to re-make something like it?
Whatever we go with we’d like to keep it under $300 (I know, tight, but neither of us can justify paying more than that for something that will go through the ringer on a daily basis).

i don’t know if the ring listing includes the center stone, but if you really love it you could contact the seller and ask if they’ll sell the setting without a stone, and you could have a moissanite or asha set in it for less, or maybe they have an alternate stone.
I definitely think the ring is cool and different. It also seems to be abit young and “current” though, which isnt necessarily a bad thing. Do you see it as being your forever ring? (As in you’ll wear unt until you’re old and grey)? If so, go for it!

@multinational: Honestly I didn’t even think about that. They seem to be one of those ‘once this ring is gone that’s it’ kind of deals. I’ll hop on that!
I’ll agree that it is more on the ‘trendy’ end of things, but it’s just so much something I would wear that I think I could handle wearing it (and loving it) forever. 🙂

Perhaps talk to a jeweller to see if you could have it custom made?

@LadyBortles: what kind of stone is in there? kinda hard to tell from the pictures. sometimes etsy sellers will sell you the setting only! i like it! not cookie cutter!

This looks very similar to the ring that Kat von D just got – If not exactly, it’s pretty close. If you’re budget is really tight, you might be able to google “knock off Kat von D ring” (or something similar) and find a CZ version? Just a suggestion 🙂

@wrkbrk: I’m almost certain it’s a diamond. Surely it is for the asking price of almost $2,000. I plan on hitting him up to see what my chances are, the worst that could happen is he says no! 🙂
@TogetherThroughLife: I’m surprised I’m even getting that! Lol. Since this will technically be the 3rd ring (including my promise ring) FI has bought for me.
@humminbird: Kat’s is from Great Frog in London. Totally custom for her & twice as gorgeous!…lucky girl! (I shamelessly follow both her and DeadMau5 on Instagram! Lol.) I’ve tried searching for ‘skull engagment rings’ but haven’t turned up anything other than pics of her ring and the 2 listings for this jewler on Etsy. But I’m not giving up yet! 🙂 I honestly didn’t even think of trying to google for a knock off instead of just a ring with skulls!

I love these skull rings https://www.sapphirestudiosdesign.com/product-category/skull-rings/
My favourite I think is ‘Aphrodite’! (dream ring..)
