@hphipp1:  some online jewellery companies operate under multiple names for some reason.  this could be the case.  or perhaps it is two companies and they happen to buy their jewellery stock from the same supplier.

do they have reasonable reviews?

I purchased a loose peach sapphire from Rene Jewewlry. The sapphire was exactly what he advertised. It came very quickly too. I think I ordered it on a Tuesday and it arrived on Monday. i am on my iPad so I can’t upload a photo but look under my name to see the stone. It is beautiful. I hope this helps. Oh, I emailed him and asked what the deal was with the other seller. His response was, “we are partners.” I hope this helps.

Not usually. It is always best to go with anywhere that has a good return policy and/ or money back guarantee. Stores cannot afford to get a bad reputation online especially.

It’s because most likely the person who owns the stores did not create the ring you’re seeing. They probably purchased settings (Likely in bulk unless they are precious metal) and set their own stones and/or they purchase pre-made rings (Even precious metal/stone type rings) and are simply reselling them. It’s a huge no-no in the Etsy world since everything “should” be hand-made. But these clearly weren’t unless they are the same shop, in which case policy states they need to identify their second shop in their policies. If they don’t, I’d be wary.

Not everything on Etsy is hand made. You’ll likely end up with a slave labored item from China unless you do some thorough investigating of the seller and their creative process.

Definitely check the reviews and ratings of the seller.  Also, make sure they have a return policy.   They can just purchase them from the same supplier.
