Hello! I’m not engaged (yet!) but I have been looking around at rings for a couple of months to get an idea for the, hopefully soon, future! I didn’t know until recently that I’m not really a traditional diamond engagment ring type of girl, who knew?! So I went in search of somehting different and fell in LOVE with morganite and rose gold! BUT where I live most jewelry stores I’ve looked at don’t sell a huge selection of Morganite or Rose Gold engagment rings. That lead me to the amazing Google where I found a ton of listings but all from Etsy. I’ve looked around on Etsy before but have never bought anything or really even know how it all works as far as payments, etc. But I found a TON of gorgeous rings and from a lot of different sellers. The reviews are all really great but I’m a little worried about a huge purchase being made over the internet and shipped by mail and I believe my BF is too. I found a ring from an Etsy shop in the US (I would feel more comfortable with it not being sent all the way overseas and it would seem easier to fix a problem if something came up). The seller is ByLaris and here’s the ring I am looking at:
If anyone has ordered thier engagement rings from Etsy or have any comments please let me know! Also, if you have a Morganite ring, please let me know how you like it, the color, pros/cons, and of course pictures! Maybe I can get some inspiration for another style!
Thanks and much Love!

Oh my gosh I love that ring! If only I had $400 to spare lol.
Etsy is sort of like Amazon, but homemade goods and crafts. But like Amazon, it’s comprised of individual groups or companies who want to sell their goods. You pay through Etsy and they get the money. Just put in your,credit card or paypal. A percentage of what they make goes to Etsy for advertising and hosting the page.
That user has 5 stars! Definitely a safe bet.
edit – I’d just like to add that you shouldn’t worry about overseas shipping. I used to work for a company that sold jewelry on many sites, including Etsy. You just put the product in an “international” envelope. Plus, think of it this way: even if you were ordering it from a seller in the US your ring would still be put on a plane. This time it’ll be put on a plane that’s traveling slightly further. It doesn’t make a difference. We never experienced any more lost items with international orders. And if you order is lost, the seller has access to tracking info. They’d make you another one no problem.

Just like with any other retailer, if you closely read the reviews and discuss any concerns you may have with the seller beforehand, you should be good. Re shipping, I get where you’re coming from but the seller should buy shipping insurance (or it should be built into the shipping cost).

Can’t help you with any of your questions, but may I just say, “GORGEOUS”!

My engagement ring is from Sundari Gem. I love it and would do it all over again. I will say, this is my second one from Etsy though. The first one we purchased through Eidel Precious ended up being very poorly made. She had a lot of great reviews too but I’ve talked to many women on here that had the same issues with her. At least she refunded our money.

I have a morganite and platinum ring from Rosados Box on Etsy. I loved the rings, but was skeptical about ordering such a big purchase online, plus I had never seen morganite in person. Luckily, they have a store (called Love and Promise) in Chicago (where I live) a few blocks from my office, so my Fiance and I went in and met with them. My ring is from Rosados Box and I love it!

Mine is currently being made by an Etsy seller. Even though I’ve purchased from Etsy before and everything went smoothly we still had our concerns about spending such a large amount of money on something so important and that will be coming from New York (UK Bee here) but shipping insurance is included.

Mine is from samnsue, who I found on Etsy, but ordered through their website. In my research, I found that Etsy reviews are only allowed to be positive or the negative ones are deleted/never posted, etc. I looked in various places for reviews and felt pretty confident with my choice. I would also order from Rosado’s Box too. A morganite search here will give you some info about legit sellers and who to avoid. There seemed to be a pretty big range of legitamate jewelers and someone working on a home ec project.

You can’t delete Etsy reviews, so that’s not real. You could potentially fake real ones for a small amount of money, but once they’re there, they’re there to stay.

Perhaps, but I saw some commentary about shady sellers on Etsy and the review process. It’s not easy to weed through the BS.

Hey, I bought my wedding band from etsy and I was super worried about the idea of buying a ring off etsy.. I just felt there was so much less accountability, etc.. BUUUT the price tag (20% of in-store prices) plus the fact I couldn’t find one quite as dainty from big brand name stores made me take a leap of faith.. I was so happy I did. I love my ring so much. It came super quickly and seems very well made.
I got it from JulianStudio, in case if he has anything you like I’d highly recommend him.
