I am from Australia and going on a holiday to LA. I am ordering an engagement ring from the USA and having it shipped to the hotel where I am staying in LA. The ring is not a diamond (it's a moissanite) and its value is around US$1,300 (I am buying it $995 on sale).
Is the ring going to be OK to come back on my fiancés finger through Security and Customs or do we need to pay extra to bring it in back in Australia?
Do I need to declare it coming in or can she just wear it on her finger?
