I live in Australia and am in the process of looking at rings – however, there are very limited places to buy them over here. Can anyone suggest really good online sites to look at. I’m finding it so hard to find the PERFECT ring here.
Thanks in advance 🙂 x

I found mine in Etsy. If you like antique/vintage rings you might want to have a look 🙂

Where in Aus are you from? There’s multiple jewellery stores in every shopping centre but I’d recommend a wholesaler or small jewellery store, not a chain one.

I got mine from Krikawa they are in the United States but they ship world wide. Many of their rings go to Singapore of all places. They are well known for their Mokume Gane and ornate engagement rings.

I got mine from James Allen! I love that you can get a close-up view of the diamonds, but you definitely should look at the ‘recently purchased’ rings to get an idea of what the actual rings look like. I assume the pictures featured on their website are the originally designed pieces – the ones you actually purchase are made from casts, so they look slightly different. I absolutely love my ring, and we’re planning on buying our wedding rings from there as well.
I second Etsy, though! There are some beautiful rings on there – I’m loving the rings from Rosados Box I keep seeing around the boards and I eyed a lot of the Art Deco rings on there before I decided on my James Allen ring.

Diamond was ‘A cut above’ stone purchased online from Whiteflash, based in Houston, Texas.
Setting was made by Mappin & Webb in Glasgow.
Very pleased with both. By puchasing the diamond and setting separately I saved about a third of the cost of a UK ring with an equivalent good quality stone even allowing for postage and 20% UK import tax.
Also have a look at the Brian Gavin site. The diamonds are really well cut.
