The Gazelles ticked another big item off the to-do list – we got our wedding bands! With less than 2 months to go I think we cut things a bit close but we managed to luck out.
See, the thing is, we put off buying our wedding bands for so long because we were waiting for the Tiffany & Co. jewellery store to open up here in Calgary. I was pretty sure I wanted a simple platinum band that matched the band on my engagement ring. Well…I trotted on down to the new store within the first week of opening, tried on the wedding band and I just didn’t love it. Instead I fell in love with a circle of thin diamonds that was way out of our price range.
Since I found the look that I loved I tried to see if I could find it for less. We lucked out at Calgary Jewellery. It was the perfect ring, at the perfect price, and in the perfect size. Want to see it again?And here it is with my engagement ring…We lucked out that the ring in the case just happened to be in my size. If we would have had to order a ring we might have had a tough time getting it in time for our July wedding. So Hive, don’t do what I did – don’t put off the search for your wedding band for too long!As for Mr. Gazelle? He decided to go for a tungsten carbide ring with a carbon fibre accent. It looks very cool and very manly and modern!We also lucked out in that the standard size rings in most of the jewellery store just happened to fit Mr. Gazelle. He’s definitely very happy with the style of his ring.The only thing is I was Googling for an image of the ring to show BM-D…and…I found it online for significantly less! We ordered the other ring, we’ll compare it to the original ring and probably return the more expensive ring.
Did you almost wait too long to buy your wedding bands? Did you find your ring online for a lot less than what you originally found it for?
