Right I’m having a bit of a rant.
I can’t be the only one, so please help if you can relate to this in any way.
my boyfriend and I have been looking at rings since May and I’ve got to the point where I almost dont care what I get any more, I’ve gone round in too many circles.
We bought a moissanite co ring which is beautiful but I just dont love it, and we cant return it because we chose a colour gold for the prongs that wasnt standard.
I’ve spent hundreds of hours pouring over online blogs, photos, stores at rings and I change my mind every five minutes.
We’ve ordered a few other rings online that we did return as the quality wasnt very good and they still were not quite what I was looking for.
We booked an appointment in London at a really posh jewellers who only sell online but have a show room so their prices are low, but still nothing I loved.
We spen an entire weekend walking around jewellery shops and found thinks I thought were ok but nothing screamed ‘pick me!’.
So now at this point I’ve almost given up. I’ve tried on enough rings to know some of the thigns I do and dont like but I jsut cant seem to find it, and having a modest budget means we’re a little bit restricted with where we can purchase. Online so far seems to be the best choice and price for us, but we’ve already been stung once.
I have now stumbled on a UK jeweler who sells online but has a show room 3 hours away (too far for me to get to). They have a setting online that appears to have elements I liked from other settings combined, and they have a solid return policy. I showed my boyfriend and he agreed we could take a chance on it as we can send it back, but this is the last one we order.
I’m now waiting on a .58ct radiant with a tapered channel set band and lucida style prongs to arrive in about 3 weeks, but i’m so worried I will get my hopes up and praying it really is as good as it looks!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who has driven themselves and their partner insane looking at rings?! I realise I come across as a bit mental 🙂
