Why not wait until after the wedding?  Or, buy cheap stand ins and shop for bands after you elope?  I know much of the sentiment is gone at that point, but I would rather look down and see something I loved every day for the rest of my life vs. something that was purchased in a rush.  The marriage is about your love for another anyway, not rings.  🙂

@mayflowerbride13:  Depends on price point. Birks is a wonderful jeweler, but on the expensive side.

For less expensive options, try People’s (I’ve bought a few things from there, they’re pretty good), Ben Moss (ditto), or Mappins (ditto).

I hope you do elope – that would be wonderful based on your past posts!!

DO IT!!! Check out local chain jewelery stores – you should be able to easily get something right off the shelf.  Good luck hun!

You can order bands from Blue Nile today and get them tomorrow. My band’s from there, and I love it.

Blue Nile will take a while (because of customs and crossing the border into Canada).

I would try your local mall and consider buying cheap ‘stand in’ rings at the mall so you can choose your rings after. (Canadian jewellers are Birks, Ben Moss, People’s Credit Jewellers’, Mappins – I shocked to find Walmart sells silver engagement rings.)

You can browse People’s Credit Jeweller’s online if you want to see what they stock.

There is a blue nile.ca site, FYI.. I am pretty sure you can get stuff overnighted.

OP – ideally, you’ll be wearing these rings for the rest of your lives.  Pick up some cheap stand-ins for the elopement ceremony, then take some time after to shop around and pick out a set that you both really love.

I don’t know what kind of rings you are looking for but here are my top pics:

MagPie has lots of options and alternative metals. There is one in Rideau centre and one in the Glebe.

Rings Etc (on Bank st) has lots of antique rings downstairs and they will give you a deal if you pay cash. My Darling Husband hates the people serving you there but I thought for plain bands there were lots of choies downstairs in the vintage department (Do not go upstairs, it is all really expensive)

People’s would not normally be my first choice but the prices are cheaper, workmahship not so great

@rebwana:  Unfortunately, Canadian customs can take up to a week to clear depending on their load. I would not risk it!
