Hello,

First time poster here. I'm ready to pop the question to my girlfriend. The only problem is she's not a traditional girl when it comes to engagement rings. She's shown a strong interest in a vintage emerald ring, preferably something in an emerald cut with a few small diamonds around the center stone. I found a few items on eBay, but I'm always hesitant to go that route, since I'm not actually seeing the ring in person (but let me know if this has worked out well for anyone else):

Both of these rings are from the same seller, but I'm very open to any suggestions as to where I can find similar rings. I'm fairly far out of my element when it comes to such a purchase so I welcome any and all advice. My price range is around $3-5k. Hopefully I can find a quality ring in that range.
