- Wedding: May 2013
FI and I are looking at wedding bands now. We’ve looked online and at a reputable jeweler, but we’re really confused on where to buy them! The jeweler’s quote was out of our price range, and he said the price wouldn’t be final until after he created them (which I REALLY did not like hearing!, although we learned alot about different types of gold/metal and got professionally sized, which was good.)
We both want fairly simple bands, we like the hammered look. We’re leaning towards rose gold as well, although I’m not 100% on it, and we like 10K, because we’ll wear the rings hard.
SOOO… Does anyone have any suggestions about:
1. Where to buy the ring from, either online or a reputable jeweler in the Midwest? I will not get mine at a big box store. I know as well that to price rings down, they will scrape some metal on the inside so the weight is less and you pay less doing so.
2. Your experiences with white, yellow, and rose gold? Do some scratch easier than others, how easy was it to resize, etc.
3. If anyone has any advice on comfort fit or hammered rings, I would appreciate it!
