Do you like it, i was a little shocked also as ive never paid imoprt tax before either.
I offered $800 and he accepted,
Then there was shipping fee through that ridiculous global sipping program, all up it was more than $1300 aussie dollars, i couldn't find a similar nugget coin ring anywere else eccept for this seller, Its the design im paying for! I've been looking for weeks and tried on over 50 rings and nothing appealed to me as much as this one, actually not just this one but this seller has great taste and designing skills, just like I do with lasers, he has many other buitifull rings if you can appreciate gold designs take a look!
OK that makes sense then--import duty really drives it up on top of all other costs.
If you like it, is all good. From pictures it appears to be nicely made.
