I know a lot of you have and I was just looking to get some opinions. This is chapter 56079312 in our ongoing saga of my engagement ring. I know what I want. Blue sapphire, circled by diamonds, white gold. Preferably oval, but can be swayed on shape. I live in the UK and I think you guys in America are just years ahead of us in terms of engagement rings. We dont have anything like what you ladies have over here. I have seen countless rings I like on etsy which match my specifications exactly but my gf is reluctant to order online as obviously we havent seen them in person.
How did you get around this? Were you nervous knowing you may not ultimately like the ring?

I know what you mean about UK vs US rings. I originally looked at UK websites so we could easily get it shipped to my SO without customs charges, but I really couldn’t find anything I liked. But on US websites? Tons! I found a lot of things I loved.
I was fine with Etsy because for one, the seller had been in business for more than a year and had 100% positive reviews. She was also great to communicate with and worked well with me, so I had a good vibe from her. No red flags. She also had real pictures of her work, rather than just digital mock ups.
She also had a decent return policy, so ultimately I knew if I got it and hated it, I could work with her to fix it or just return it.

We plan to upgrade to this beauty in a few years.

I didn’t get my engagment ring from etsy, but I have gotten several RHR’s and I love them all. Do you’re homework on the seller and you shouldn’t have any problems! Good luck! And for fun some of my etsy ring porn.
