hit up every single store until you are satisfied (thats what i intend to do).  there’s no rule saying it has to come from the same store..unless you go a custom route.

Mine are from different stores.  We found the exact engagement ring I wanted at one store, but honestly, I don’t like their return policy, or their extended service plan. So, we went to another store for my wedding ring, and found the perfect one. 

One thing to consider, though, if you get your rings at different stores and get them soldered together, you may void your service plan on one of the rings. A lot of jewelry stores will do that if you have work done at another store saying they can’t guarantee work done somewhere else. So make sure you get any work done at the place where you bought the most expensive ring… Either that or just plan on paying for any work you have to have done.

But honestly, if you have quality rings, you shouldn’t need a lot of work done on your rings anyway. So it shouldn’t be a huge issue.  Just make sure your rings are covered on your home owner’s policy or rental policy.

Mine aren’t. Darling Husband and I were in school a state away when he bought my e-ring. We now live and work 6 hours from that jewelry store (not a chain) and got my wedding band from a chain store at a mall. I wanted to be able to get it easily and quickly fixed/replated/cleaned or we could have gone back to the e-ring store and bought my band as well.

@o0olibelulao0o: We got our wedding bands from a different store than where my husband had my ring made. I have a friend who works for a local jewelry store. They were having their bi-annual wedding band trunk show. It gave my husband an opportunity to try on a lot of different wedding band styles to see what suit him. We found a comfort fit wedding band that looked alot like my engagement ring band. The store had a great sale and price for our rings, so we went for it. We’ve recommended the sale to a lot of friends too because it’s so awesome.

Here’s what my store mismatched rings look like.

I say go wherever has the band that fits your need.  There aren’t any rules about buying the rings at the same store.  We’re getting ours from the same store, but our bands are a really basic design and the store had really great prices and a totally awesome staff!

mine are from the same store but its not a matching set – i have a cushion halo too and i can see a slight difference in color since they aren’t made to match but i dont think anyone else can tell. the matching band to mine was 1200 for the eternity 800 for half – that was way out of our price range so we found somithing similar that matches for around 400.

I’d go to another store!  I’m a finicky shopper… I know what I want (usually), and if I can’t find exactly that, I’m not gonna sell myself short and settle for something that’s not perfect, I’ll keep on looking until I find what I want.

Your ring is BEAUTIFUL!  I’m surprised they said it should be worn alone.  Well, I’m not really surprised because it’s freakin’ gorg, but I’d also want a wedding band!  More bling, baby!

Go to other stores, for sure, and get what you want Smile
