Hi!! I have decided on a hand engraved/carved wedding band such as the one shown below. My challenge is finding one under $1000 that comes in a size 4.5. I’ve found some that are 5’s but they cant be resized due to the design.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a jeweler who might have something like this?

i don’t know where you live, but i saw a few like this at the jewelry exchange/jewelry factory. they’re a national chain.

@FranksMama: so pretty! but I don’t get why it would be $1,000 unless it was in platinum?
anyway, keep googling. try different keywords such as “floral wedding band”, “flower wedding band”, “leaf wedding band” “vine wedding band”, “wedding band no stones” etc. and then try that search all over again but use “ring” instead of “band”.sometimes you just have to keep trying all kinds of different key words before you find what you need.
also, I start with google image search. when I see a ring I like, then I go to that website.

@ kitzy – i completely agree that $1k+ is obscene for a white gold band
@janie-janie – thanks for the search tips. I will keep looking.

Have you tried circa1930s.com (might have an appostrophe, not sure).

You’ve probably already found one by now, but Doyle and Doyle in New York City has lots of beautiful hand engraved and vintage engraved wedding bands for under $1,000. You can look and order from their website if you can’t look in person. Also, GreenLake Jewelry Works in Seattle has some beautiful engraved bands for under $600 and they also do custom work. I had a new head put on my engagement ring by them (mailed it to Seattle from New York) and they did a beautiful job for an extremely reasonable price.
