At the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, we see hundreds of happy and beautiful couples each month, all of them in one stage or the other of getting married. As the wedding date approaches, we see couples often balancing the joyous highs of anticipation against the weighty realities of the planning process. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by time crunches, budget and the seemingly endless errands to cross off the checklist.

One of the most important errands is the selection of the couple’s wedding bands. This selection process can sometimes be a daunting task as couples deal with the dance of his taste vs. hers. Remember this — wedding bands are wearable billboards that announce your love and lifetime commitment to the rest of the world. Choosing them should be fun – not frustrating.

The experts at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City have a bit of advice:

CHOOSE IT: Remember, your future spouse’s band is something that he or she will wear every day. Make sure they are happy with the selected band and that the final choice is theirs – and not yours. When shopping for his or her wedding band, keep this one Golden Rule of marriage in mind: “It’s not about you.”

MISMATCH IT. Your bands don’t actually have to match. Unless this is a point that both of you have agreed upon, then don’t worry about matching your wedding bands. Instead, focus your attention on selecting or custom designing the bands that each of you would most like to wear each day. Perhaps he likes the idea of a simple yellow gold band with a matte finish, while she dreams of a Diamond eternity band set in shimmering white gold. It’s up to each of you to choose a band that reflects your personal style and respects the budget limits you’ve set.

CUSTOMIZE IT: “If you can dream it; I can make it,” says Johnny N, the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery’s lead designer. Whether you want engraving, a birthstone added, a mix of finishes and metals, or any other detail, even a simple wedding band can be customized. “We had one customer request Celtic symbols be etched onto the outside of her future spouse’s band,” he says. “Even though her fiancé was not really a jewelry guy, he ended up loving the piece and not wanting to take the ring off.”

ASK FOR IT: Because we know that every dollar and every penny matters when you are planning a wedding, at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, we offer couples a discount that allows them to save even more on our already 50-75% below retail prices. Buy your rings together, on the same day, and we’ll give you a special package deal price. If we don’t mention it, ask for it.

PROTECT IT: On your BIG DAY, every little detail matters. Plan to have your rings steamed a week or so before the ceremony and then keep them under wraps until the wedding. This ensures a fresh pop and sparkle will be apparent as you present the rings to one another and take your commemorative photos. The Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City offers free cleanings and maintenance for the lifetime of your piece– an invaluable service to our clients.
