I like your idea of waiting a few months. That may give you time to find another ring that you love just as much (or more!) but is less risky a proposition. I’d do the same thing. Also, have you found any reviews of the company? I often depend on reviews when on the fence about online purchases. Good luck!

My FH ordered a made to order engagement ring online and it was more beautiful than I could have imagined.

I would be hesitant to go with a company that doesn’t have a good return policy.  I would also advise waiting a bit longer and shopping around.  You may find something similar or better somewhere else.

Since you have time, if I were you I would make a habit of popping into jewelry stores whenever you see one and asking to try on wedding bands that are as similar as possible. Who knows, you might end up finding something you like better. But if you don’t then you can feel a little better about purchasing the made to order ring without trying it on first.

DH and I ordered all of our rings without seeing them in person and we love them!  I say go for it!

@Audrey2:  Do they have a lot of pictures and the specifications of the ring? As long as it is described adequately and the pictures look good, I would say go for it.
