@allyfally:  That does look shady. It appears that she just resets other gems into the Berricle rings. I would steer clear. Could you get a Berricle and just replace the center stone? Also, if you’re worried about the durability of your current ring, wouldn’t a rhodium-plated sterling silver ring have durability issues too?

Yeah I agree those look practically identical. They could be just copies of the berricle rings but….I wouldn’t trust it. If I were you I would continue wearing your current ring since you’ve got a warranty, and keep looking for your “forever” ring–a solitaire or whatever you want. What stone are you looking for in a forever ring?

@allyfally:  Ah, okay. Well, I think the Berricle ring would be a better bet! Looks (nearly?) identical, and it shouldn’t be too hard to pop out the CZ and put your stone in. Plus, Berricle seems to be way cheaper.

@allyfally:  If you are looking for colored stones, Rareearth on etsy is great!

You’re not wrong, those are Berricle rings and it looks like she’s resetting them and selling them for a huge mark-up.  I’d just order from Berricle.

Those rings are all identical. Which is one of the problems with Etsy. While Etsy has some lovely handmade pieces, there are a lot of things on Etsy that are just being marketed as “handmade” and are really made by a large chain (or a company in China) and being advertized as a work of artisan craftmanship. It’s unfortunate that a few sellers ruin the reputation of Etsy for everyone.

Thats insane!  Is there a way to “flag” her items or call her out on it?  The idea of people paying her for Berricle stuff makes me so angry!
