My partner and I are looking at engagement rings and were thinking of going down the custom design route, however I have been looking at Tacori rings online and they are just beautiful. Have any Australian bees been able to source the brand here, their store search is only bringing up North American locations 🙁

I don’t know if they sell them in Australia, but when we went shopping in Perth, most of the local jewellers could replicate anything we wanted. I was, at the time, specifically looking to replicate Tiffany Novo so that’s why I know. Just get the images from the website and take it to a few local jewellers. You can then pick out the stones you want, they make a wax mould of the ring. Once you’re happy with the design, they send it off to have the setting made in the metal of your choice and set the stones.
I ended up actually changing the design slightly and added a halo and a couple of pink diamonds so it’s totally different now from what I was thinking when we first started shopping. I liked that I was able to start with a ring design, but add and change elements as I pleased. It’s much more fun that way!

As far as I am aware there are still no authorised Tacori sellers in Australia.

I am also in your position, i live in melbourne and have started looking for engagement rings. I’ve fallen in love with one of the Tacori settings but unfortunately there’s no retailers that sell Tacori here.
I have just posted a question on here for any ladies who have purchased a Tacori to see if i can find a trusted jeweller in the states because i don’t want a replica and i don’t think i’ll find anything close to the ring i want here (i LOVE rings and ALWAYS have to stop to look at rings in jewellery store so i’ve looked at quite a few over the years and have never really seen any with such detail)
I would be careful about replicating Tacori as their rings a very distinct and detailed and i think you will have to pay quite alot to a very good jeweller to get the same or similar result.
They may well tell you they can make it but once you’ve put money down and they’ve started it’ll be hard to get out of it if you’re not happy with the result.
I thought of finding something that i can actually see before buying as i’m hesitant to make such a huge purchase blindly but i can’t find any ring that matches Tacori’s.
Good luck and let us know how you go!

@ChiChiGirl77: Hello fellow Aussie 🙂
My partner and I did consider purhasing a Tacori from Since1910.com seeing as they ship internationally, but in the end we did go the custom route with an intricate and unique design. If you are hesitatant to purchase online like I was then I think custom is the way to go, some jewellers do simply amazing work but I think it’s so important to find the right jeweller (get recommendations and review their work before buying.)
Do you mind me asking which Tacori design you like?

I like the HT2522ov9x7. This is the link.
I would love to own the original, unfortunately Since1910 don’t have this design, Ive heard they’re good to buy from though so its a shame. I’m going to continue looking for a reputable jeweller and see how i can cover myself if anything does go wrong.
I will continue to look at rings here in Melbourne and who knows even though Tacori is hard to beat (In my mind as i’ve fallen in love with them :-)) i might find something i love more and don’t have to worry.
I have about 12 months as we’ve just started saving for the ring, but i have been looking for a while now and have changed my mind a few times! haha… I think because for me its the sentimental value and i plan to keep it forever, some girls like to upgrade or change but i want to buy one ring and thats it.
You should post pics of your ring, i’d love to see it.
Did you use Tacori as inspiration for your ring?
