I think KatyElle got a beautiful ring from Etsy. There are so many designers on Etsy that have amazing work.

It really depends on the designer.

 

Also, you need to be aware that the rings on Etsy are handmade – duh, right? But that means there will almost certainly be evidence of this: slightly crooked prongs, band not even all the way around, marks or grooves, etc. Some people like this, the “perfectly imperfect” look. Some people want their ring to look very clean and precise. It’s up to you and your preference, but just be aware.

I had my wedding band made from an Etsy seller. I had an idea in my mind of what I wanted but couldn’t find it in the stores. The Etsy jeweler took a concept I described and created a CAD drawing of it. I changed several things, and approved a final drawing. The ring came out better than I ever could have imagined. It’s perfect in every way and MUCH less expensive than the quotes I received from my local jewelers to create it.

It looks like CanAmBride had a good experience with a jeweler from Etsy but beware that not everything on Etsy is handmade. Since I’ve discovered Regretsy.com I’ve learned there are obvious re-sellers. Etsy boasts that everything is handmade but clearly everything is not. I guess it depends if you want something handmade or maybe it doesn’t matter. I’ve seen absolutely beautiful handmade things on Etsy, including jewelry and I’ve also seen obvious jewelry made in China.

By The Way, CanAmBride… your ring is stunning!!!

My engagement ring turned out beautifully from an Etsy goldsmith. However, as it was handmade it was not completely “perfect” as if it came out of the mold, that’s what makes it unique and special to me. There is a little air bubble that only I know is there. There are minute differences between two sides that only I can see. It’s awesome for me to know that somone has shaped my entire ring from scratch.

I also decided not to see the centre stone before it was set, as it was adding a lot of time to the project mailing the stone back and forth. It was gorgeous, clear stone but I could see tiny spots on one side that my husband can’t see. I have great eye site. Only I know, those are there if I look at a very specific angle. I think it is worth the time not to rush. Pick everything carefully and check out the stone/s before they are set if possible.
