I wouldn’t buy something so expensive and precious online, unless its from a very well known store. Etsy is kind of known but the sellers are independent. I would look somewhere else.

have you checked in these places?

I don’t see a problem, but if there is one, PayPal is on your side. Go for it!

I’ve bought several pieces of jewelry from various etsy sellers overseas, never had a problem. Everything pans out to me, I say get the ring!

The only thing I see is that she wants it sent back within 3 days. Confirm that it has to have confirmation that it is on its way or does she have to have it in her hands within 3 days. That has happened believe me. I worked for FedEx for 5 years and this was a common thing for shippers overseas to get you for no returns.

Does that make sense?

Do you have her name or business name? Try to do some research online to see if anyone has any good/bad reviews anywhere. Definitely check out her reviews on Etsy, too. 

Good luck!

I think the ring is super beautiful and it all sounds legit. Her craftsmanship is extremely beautiful for an etsy seller, and I think, if I were in your shoes, I would go ahead and buy. However, if the Amora is truly an Amora, it will be accompanied by an NAGL certificate with color grading and specs, so be looking for that.

As soon as you get it, I would take it to a jeweler to get it appraised and make sure it is what she says it is.  I did that with my ring even though I bought it from an American company.

The ring looks gorgeous, and everything sounds legit. I would double check the return policy, like a PP said. If it’s confirmation that it is sent to her within 3 days that’s one thing, but if she has to have it within 3 days, that’s shady.

Would you be willing to share the name of the seller? I’d love to see her other work!

If you are still anxious, have you considered buying from Moissaniteco.com or even Betterthandiamond.com directly? They both have similar rings available:

Wow, beautiful ring looks like mine! I would also be leery of purchasing online. You can absolutely get this ring made in the states by a jeweler. Just take the pic of your ring with you and see what they quote you.

gorgeous ring.  it’s sounds fairly legit.

i’ve seen rings like that from other jewellery stores, can you not get one without having to buy it online?  i’m sure a jeweller could find one just like that for you.  if it’s a price thing, ask if they will match the price.

let us know how it all works out.
