Today I’m going to share with you how to save money when buying a wedding ring by buying it online. When my husband and I first got married, we bought cheap wedding rings from Walmart. We were young and just starting adulthood so we wanted to go easy on the budget. I personally have never bought into the idea of a big fancy diamond wedding ring that costs thousands and thousands. If we are being honest, I prefer other gemstones. My wedding ring from Walmart consisted of a bunch of small stones. I honestly couldn’t even tell you if they were real diamonds.
After four years of marriage, I was ready to upgrade my ring. I wanted something just a bit shinier. I decided on Moonstone for my stone and started searching online. I happened upon Etsy and found one I fell in love with. It was also a great price, way better than what you can find in stores. I was a bit hesitant to make such a large purchase on Etsy. After reading the sellers description, shop policies and reviews, I decided to take the chance. And let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed. My new ring is everything I wanted and MORE! I opted for a 14k rose gold band with a pear-shaped moonstone surrounded by diamonds with diamonds on the band. I also had it engraved with our initials and anniversary date! It’s so beautiful and makes me smile every time I look at it!
Before jumping the gun on a wedding ring from Etsy, I highly recommend you do your research. Read the items description entirely. Also read up on the shops return policy and read the shops reviews. I decided to order from Ramona because she had sold many rings and had a ton of five star reviews with buyers raving about the rings. After purchasing, she kept in touch regarding my order and even sent me a picture of the moonstone she was planning to use in my ring to make sure I loved it. You can find her shop HERE.
I also recommend you make sure the estimated delivery day meets your needs. I was not in any hurry to get my ring (besides wanting it immediately). If you need the ring ASAP for a proposal or wedding ceremony, it might be better to purchase one from a store. Since the ring is created custom, it did take just under three weeks to be delivered from the time I purchased it. I was anxiously waiting at the mailbox when the mailman arrived (it required a signature for delivery).
I love that my ring is definitely more unique than the rings you find in the jewelry stores. It’s rose gold (I love rose gold!) and has a beautiful moonstone for the main stone. The engraving also makes it even more personal. I’m very happy with my purchase and will not hesitate to purchase future rings online. As long as you do your research, you can absolutely find your dream ring for a great price!
