NO. I love Ebay but some things I just wouldn’t buy on there, this included.

For that price? Why not.  Either it’s a great deal, or it’s a cheap lesson learned.

I’m not entirely impressed with the feedback they have received…  I think for <$20, I might give it a try.  This for your sapphire?

@GelaMac:  I look up completed sales for this same item. All 7 of them sold in prices ranging from $127.00 to $167.00.

If you have around $160 to experiment with, go for it.

But this same seller has a similar mount listed at $398. I don’t see a difference in the product.

I myself have wondered about these Chinese products. There are vendors on the web that seel ring mounts–while not so inexpensive as this–less expensive than American chain jewelry stores.

I would worry about purity of metal and workmanship and would wonder if the diamons are “real.”

You can’t get something for nothing.

if it seems too good to be true, it probably is

If it were me, I would carefully go thru all the negative feedbacks. And with “stock” photos, I’d be XTRA careful bcuz 99% of the time, the actual item would be much smaller in person!

Shopping on eBay, I’d first consider those with actual “real life” photos of the item to get a accurate perspective.

Good luck to you!

@GelaMac:  Nope. I’d be iffy buying off Ebay in the first place… and for China and that price? I don’t think so.

I’d rather pay more at a local jeweler and know what I’m getting.

I wouldn’t want to wear something that’s bad quality.

I would do it for that price! If you don’t like it, send it back or sell it for scrap gold…the price of gold here is much more than that!

I love the second with the twist and double halo! I’ve ordered purses and clothes from china before. They will usually mark the item as a gift so you don’t have to pay customs. You might want to check with the seller first.

does it come with an appraisal or anything? 

it isn’t a very expensive item so why not?
