Make sure you have the right size, and that there is a STELLAR return policy!

We tried a couple on in stores to get an idea of what he liked and then bought it off of amazon. We’re really happy with the band, and I’m happy knowing that if anything happened to the band, we can easily replace it.

Go to a jewelry store, act interested, and have him try on a bunch of different rings to get a sense of his preferred style. Also get measured there. Then you can hop online and find something cheaper that you already know he’ll love and it will fit him. Do make sure the return policy is flexible just in case the sizing is off.

@DiamondnLovey:  My FI got sized at the jewelry store, but selected a pretty wide band.  The size the little sizing ring said he was is too small/ not comfortable with the wider band, so he has to half size up.  So I would just be careful of that and if he’s around the normal ring store size, have him try on a few different types to see how the fit goes.

e-weddingbands.com is fantastic – I bought mine and my husband’s bands there.

SO’s ring is from Etsy so we went to a jeweler in the mall to figure out his ring size. My only suggestion is going to at least two different jewelers just to be sure the size is correct. Overall, it was a great decision for us – he loves his ring and I love seeing it on him 🙂

I bought him a few cheap $10 rings in different sizes to actually wear before he decided his size.  The size you think you are on the jewelry sizer in the store is often different than the size that you like day to day.  FI ended up choosing almost a size smaller than he originally thought.
