A Few Tips for Narrowing Down Your Choices
Like flowers and cake, there are thousands of options to choice from and since your wedding band is one of the few pieces of jewelry you’ll wear every day, it’s best to have an idea of what you find attractive before you visit one of our store.
Here are a few simple questions to help you narrow your options with ease:
- Do you want your wedding band to be made from gold color as your engagement ring? White gold, yellow gold or rose gold?
- Is your style typically minimalistic, extravagant or artsy?
- Would you prefer your wedding band to showcase diamonds or colored precious stones?
- Do you want your wedding band to be similar to your significant other’s?
You can also narrow down you choices by bring in a few images of rings that you have pinned on Pinterest or seen in our Bridal collection. Once you have a general idea of what you like, it’s time to start trying on in-person. Give yourself between two and three months prior to your wedding date to select and purchase a ring (If you are in a pinch, we can certainly accommodate a slimmer time frame!). You’ll need time to browse and maybe even get the opinion of family and friends. If you are looking to have a custom wedding band created or would like to have your ring engraved, you will need to schedule an appointment with our service department in advance to make sure we have everything ready with time to spare.
It’s also important that you try on bands that aren’t on your Pinterest board. Like with dresses, the only way to rule out a mermaid gown or teacup dress is to try it on. We can pull together all the rings you like and suggest a few more based on how you feel about the questions listed above. Our staff has years of experience and will work to help you find your ideal wedding band.
One last thing – don’t forget about comfort! You may love the style of a band, but after trying it on, find that it's just not a good fit. Wear it around our store for a few minutes or try writing your name or texting on your phone as a comfort test. You can always work with our service department to adjust any band to fit.
