@MrsPirt_2013:  what setting are you looking at? If it is a setting with lots of delicate pave work, then the people responding that way may be concerned about diamonds falling out. Also, if it a fairly thin/delicate band, they may be worried for you about durabiity. It may also be that the comments are about craftsmanship and quality.

Lord of Gems was suggested to me as a place that could make me a custom e-ring on one of the boards. I did find the same info as you that the rings are great for RHR but not for everyday wear. Then I read somewhere that even though real stones are used they could be treated and filled in to make them look nicer than they are. So, I decided to go with someone on Etsy instead. It’s like a shark tank out there for these things. Would love to hear more about the place too 🙂

I have purchased a RHR from LOGR. I brought it to a jeweler right after it arrived. The jeweler was surprised that they used such nice diamonds for the baguettes surrounding the center gemstone. I know that some people upgrade the diamonds, but I didn’t. They look beautiful. I changed the gemstone in the ring and the jeweler said it was nice also.

My only concern with the ring if it was an Engagement Ring would be regarding the thickness of the gold.

I would worry about sizing it down that much also.

Here is what I would do – do a custom order instead. It takes a little longer to receive, but then you could request that the shank be a bit thicker and have it made in your size instead of sizing it down. I just received a quote on a custom order where I needed it to hold a 9mm gem instead of 6mm as the one listed. It wasn’t much more.

Just realized that you posted this 2 weeks ago so you may have already made a decision. Sorry for my late reply!

Beware! I bought a lovely anniversary band from LOGR in July of 2013. About a month ago one of the diamonds fell out… gone. Unlike the pleasant correspondence I got when ordering, the correspondence about the problem was brief and abrupt… I had to pay for the new diamond, I had to pay $20 to have it shipped, AND I had to have a local jeweler repair it. When I replied that this was unacceptable because the ring was only 14 months old, I was told I could return it for 65% of the price. When I spoke to Stephen Zhou on the phone he said because of the price and the fact that it was made in China, there is nothing I can do. He has since stopped answering any of my correspondence. My setting is still without a stone. Beware!

I’ve ordered one ring from them and I love it. It’s the rose gold eternity band. The stones are fairly good quality, but I would have paid extra for a stone upgrade, which is possible.

Here is the ring, at the bottom of my stack (the other rings are from eleswhere). 

If any stones come out, I would have the ring fixed at a local jeweler. It was well priced for what I got 😉

But for a forever everyday where e-ring, I would much prefer a local store where I could get a warranty (which is what I did at Zales/Peoples). That way any maintenance or repairs are covered!

Stay away from this Lord of the Rings online jeweler. What everyone has been saying is absolutely true – they do not honor their words, and their pictures do not accurately describe the merchandise sold on Ebay or any where else sold online.

 

Unfortunately the eternity band I bought recently was supposed to be VVS diamond quality and 18k gold. When I had a GIA appraiser take a look at the ring (which was supposed to be just over 3 carats in diamond weight), He determined that the diamonds were instead SI3 to I1 quality, and weighed at 2.3 carats instead. The quality of the gold was also not 18k either. Some areas were spot checked to be 18k while others were 14k. Also, some of the wiring used to hold the diamonds in place are loose (like what others have been saying) so there is a chance the stones could fall out.

Not convinced, a got a second opinion, and the appraiser confirmed the same.

I went back to this “Jeweler” called Lord of the Rings, and mentioned the issue – Stephen Zhou never responded to my emails. He just lied. Took my money, and never responds.

 

Buyers, Beware!

@cgasp:  Having to have a stone set at a local jewler is a risk you take when ordering from a seller on etsy who manufactures their work in China. I emailed him and asked him ahead of time what would happen if something went wrong with my ring and he was very straight forward. I think a  lot of people seem to expect nothing to ever go wrong with their rings, and for the original seller to automatically fix it forever, but that isn’t always the case. I’d say with the SIGNIFICANTLY reduced cost of ordering from LOGR it is still worth it even if down the line you have to pay a local jeweler to repair something.

MrsPirt_2013:  DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER. MY RING BROKE WITHIN 2 MONTHS OF HAVING IT. I ENSURED THAT I TOOK IT OFF TO DO THE CLEANING AND TO HAVE BATHS ETC BUT IT STILL BROKE. THE SELLER TOLD ME I WOULD RECEIVE A FULL REFUND IF I RETURNED THE RING BUT ONLY GAVE MY 70% BACK.
