Hi everyone. New UK bee here and my first post
My partner and I are 30, own a house (and kitten) together and are very happy. So we are naturally heading towards getting engaged. We have discussed this together a few times and he is open to seeing rings that I like. I would let him choose as I trust him however he is just so useless with technology so I think pointing him in the right direction would be best.
My slight dilemma here is that I have fallen in love with a unique style of ring, see attached image. I can only find this in two places which are on Purely Diamonds and from a seller on Etsy who is based in Israel. My main issue here is that firstly the ring from Purely Diamonds is smaller than I would like, being a total of 0.5 carats and it is real diamonds. I am not a snob and have no issues with smaller rings but I am very tall for a girl (6ft1) and have larger lanky hands and so just simply feel a small carat size could look and feel lost on me. Maybe I am wrong! Additionally I have found myself steering towards wanting a more eco friendly ring such as a moissanite or white sapphire etc. The only issue here is that these aren’t common in the UK and so would likely have to import from abroad. I have found one that is perfect, the exact style I would love and 1 carat moissanite centre stone, however, this would involve buying through Etsy from Isreal… I am wary of this and also the import taxes that could incur.
Therefore, ladies, I wondered if anyone had seen this style of ring elsewhere, had any advice on buying a diamond simulant or from abroad/through Etsy. Or, of course, if anyone has this style of ring photos and where you purchased it from would be amazing. Thank you so much! x
