I’ve been waiting anxiously for my wedding band to get here. Karl bought it online, and it takes 3-4 weeks for delivery, and even though we still have 6 months until the wedding, I want it here NOW.
We went ring shopping a few times, and I had a really hard time deciding not only what would look good with my engagement ring without overpowering it, but what would also look good by itself since I can’t wear my engagement ring everywhere (definitely not in Brazil…).
Karl’s ring was a much simpler process (ah, to be a guy…). At first, Karl also wanted a platinum band, but he also wanted something shiny. I explained to him that platinum scratches easily and eventually it will be matte. He then started considering Tungsten rings, which yay for me, it’s a LOT cheaper than platinum ones (so I’m saving a good grand on his ring).
We did a bit of research, and settled on buying it from Titanium Kay, since the site has great reviews and spectacular prices.
After picking two styles, choosing which we liked best after receiving them in the mail, and returning one for a refund and one for engraving, we received the final ring at home.
Of course, I took pictures! I engraved it with You’re My Dream Come True – C&K 11/27/10 (our wedding date)
I can’t recommend Titanium Kay enough — the ring prices were great (his ring was less than $100, including engraving!), and the quality and service was well beyond my expectations. From the time we first ordered to the time he had the final engraved ring back was at most 2 weeks.
The bad part? There’s still 6 months until he could wear that for good. I loved seeing him with a ring on his finger. Who knew a ring could make a guy so ridiculously attractive?
