Your elegant shaped engagement ring has been admired by all but now it’s time to order your wedding rings.
You pop into your local high street jeweller to make enquiries – and then comes the shock. Not only is it going to cost you extra to have a wedding band specially shaped to fit, but that’s the last you’ll see of your engagement ring for around six to eight weeks.
So what are the reasons for this? Well, high street jewellers often act as middle men, which means that any ring that needs special shaping has to be sent off to an expert jeweller. The result is that:
Before you start wishing you had gone for a simpler style of ring, there is an alternative – go directly to the specialist jeweller yourself.
Not only will you be able to consult directly with the jeweller, but you’re less likely to be without your engagement ring for weeks. And the good news on the money front – it can actually work out cheaper.
If you aren’t sure where to start, here are a few tips on what to look for when you need a specialist ring shaping service:
This last issue is perhaps the most important, as there’s no point in choosing the quickest cheapest option if you don’t end up with a well-designed, correctly shaped wedding ring that fits snugly against your engagement ring and matches the design.
