1. TIMING IS IMPORTANT
While some prefer to purchase their wedding bands at the same time as their engagement ring it is not a requirement. Some of our designers require up to five weeks to complete their rings. Because of this we strongly recommend ordering your wedding bands a minimum of six to eight weeks prior to your wedding date.
At Jewelry Expo, we understand that wedding planning can be stressful and in those final weeks some things can be forgotten. No problem, although many of our bands are custom-made designer items we do have in-stock selections to make sure you’re able make your date!
2. TARGET A PRICE
Just like an engagement ring it is important to consider price when planning for a wedding band. All of our designer engagement rings can be paired with the wedding band that is recommended for them and designed specifically to match in style and fit. If you purchased a designer engagement ring and you’re having difficulty finding it’s recommended match, don’t hesitate to chat, email or call us. We can quickly assist in locating the correct style.
Keep in mind it is not a requirement to purchase the designer’s recommended match. There are many options for each ring that fit into all price ranges. So don’t stress, it’s entirely up to you what style wedding band you purchase. Mixing and matching is an expression of your personal style and we encourage you to make your wedding set your very own.
3. SELECT A METAL
Whether you’re shopping for a ladies or men’s wedding band there are important factors when considering the metal that is right for you!
