I am a Ukrainian American man who is interested in proposing marriage to a woman I meet two years ago in Ukraine while visiting some relatives. So, I need to buy an engagement ring for my girlfriend.

I heard that Ukrainian custom officers will not let anyone remove Ukrainian Gold from the country.

Should I buy it here in the states and smuggle it in (to avoid taxes).

Or should I purchase it there in the Ukraine. If I purchase it there will my girlfriend have a problem with the custom officers when she leaves to the United States? Will they confiscate it or tax her for the ring???


I would be very appreciative for advice from someone who has been through this experience.

P.S. What is the average price of a 1-carat diamond solitaire engagement ring in Ukraine?

OR what is the price of an average engagement ring in the Ukraine?
