Unique Engagement Rings from Etsy

Buying engagement rings is a seriously big deal! Congratulations on reaching this step in your relationship!

Before we even begin to recommend some of our personal favorite Etsy engagement rings, we also wanted to answer some of the most frequently asked questions regarding engagement rings.

How much to spend on an engagement ring?

It is said that the average price for an engagement ring should be roughly the sum of two salaries. This is clearly debatable and subjective, but also a good guideline if you really don’t know where to start from.

How much do people actually spend on an engagement ring in the UK?

Again, this is extremely subjective and you don’t really need to follow anyone’s opinion. However, the average cost for an engagement ring in the UK is about £6k.

If you decide to spend that amount on an engagement ring, you might also look into getting insurance for it. You will easily find many options available online.

According to Purely Diamonds, a round diamond engagement ring starting price would be something like this:

You will see below, we have made a wonderful list of engagement rings varying from £200+ which is the cheapest, and all the way to £21.000. Yes, you can certainly find some extremely expensive but unique engagement rings on Etsy.

 

Is it safe to buy engagement rings online?

As long as you buy from a reputable website and not a dodgy site with no actual address, customer service, or return policy, yes.

Another thing to consider is that online retail has always been cheaper than a high street store. Jewelry and particularly engagement rings also fit into the rule.

Again, we recommend Etsy in this article because it fits into all of the above criteria.

 

Is Etsy a good place for buying engagement rings?

While anything you buy on Etsy is from the actual seller’s shop, you would have any issue with Etsy.

They are a publicly traded company on the stock market. It’s in everybody’s best interest to have satisfied customers.

The best part about buying on Etsy is that you have access to sellers all around the world, with some of the most unique pieces of jewelry. The reason why you will find some very expensive engagement rings here is that they are genuine antique rings, which you most likely can’t find on the high street.

Obviously, make sure you read all the reviews and vet the seller when making such a purchase. They are usually extremely responsive and helpful so you should have all of your questions answered before buying anything.

How to guess the perfect size for the engagement ring?

This is probably one of the main reasons why people are slightly hesitant to buying jewelry online. However, you don’t need to worry that much because there are many ways around it.

Obviously, the easiest thing would be to simply take a ring she wears on her ring finger and have it measured.

You could even get a piece of string to go around her finger. It might be a bit tricky if you didn’t want her to suspect it! If in any doubt, get a slightly larger one which you can always change to size, later.

Have you also heard about the soap trick? Simply get one of her rings, press it into a bar of soap and you have the size!

And if it happens at all that it doesn’t fit, you can always return or exchange!

**********

Now that we hope we answered some of your important questions, let’s get to the really important one- what should you get?!

We have made an incredible selection of engagement ring styles for you, from rings similar to princess Diana’s or Kate’s to famous people’s stones and some unusual engagement rings or vintage finds, too.

Engagement Ring Styles

Although things forever change, the classic engagement ring will probably always remain the diamond stone. You will also see real diamonds (far more expensive) and lab-grown diamond rings. These are just as beautiful and shiny, less the price tag, of course, and also far more ethical.

We share some examples for each of these, so you will see there is no real physical difference.

3-carat solitaire oval moissanite engagement ring

Something we have learned about ourselves- the moissanite stone – is a man-made stone, which is as durable as sapphire or emerald but just as sparkly as a diamond. Isn’t it stunning as well as much more affordable?

Pearl Engagement Ring

If you’re an Emma Stone fan probably like your future fiance is (and the rest of the world), you should definitely consider a pearl engagement ring. The actress got engaged and received a stunning and unique pearl engagement ring instead of a massive stone like most famous actors do. The price for a pearl ring is much more affordable which shows that at the end of the day, it’s not about the stone but the actual moment.

Ok, maybe it is a bit about the ring, too, because let’s be honest, your fiance is going to stare at it for quite a while until she gets used to it!
