If shopping for wedding bands seems like a big deal, that's because it is! After all, you'll be wearing your wedding band for the rest of your life; of course you want to end up with one that you love, that suits your budget, and that suits your lifestyle. As you shop wedding bands at different jewelers, then, there are some questions worth asking to ensure that you and your partner end up with exactly what you want.
What Kind of Warranty Do You Offer?
Your wedding band is going to be exposed to plenty of wear and tear over the years, so you want to buy it from a jeweler that stands behind their rings. Any reputable jeweler should offer some sort of warranty on their wedding bands, though specific warranties can vary greatly. Some jewelers, for example, may cover just the stones (if any) on the ring itself. Others may cover the entire band. In some cases, you may be able to purchase additional warranty protection as well.
What Are the Terms of Your Warranty?
If your jeweler does offer a warranty on a band you love, then you'll want to find out exactly what the terms and stipulations of the warranty are. Even with a lifetime warranty, for instance, you may be required to bring your ring in for regular cleanings and inspections in order to keep the warranty active. If this is a requirement of your warranty, then you'll also need to find out whether these cleanings/inspections or other services are included with your purchase or if you'll be expected to pay out-of-pocket for them.
Is Resizing Included With the Cost?
Even if your ring is a perfect fit on your wedding day, there's a good chance that it will need to be resized at some point later in life. Be sure to ask your jeweler if resizing services are included with your cost. And because some metals and ring styles can be resized more easily than others, you may also want to confirm with your jeweler that the ring you're looking at can, in fact, be resized as needed.
Do You Offer Customization Options?
If you want to have something special engraved into your wedding band or would otherwise like to customize your ring, be sure to ask about your jeweler's specific offerings. Ultimately, it's more convenient to find one jeweler who can handle all your customization needs.
By asking these questions as you shop for wedding bands, you'll be well on your way to buying with confidence. That'll be one more item checked off your list before your big day!

A few days ago, my mother-in-law’s dad passed away. This sweet man lived a long, full life. He was ninety-one-years-old when he died. At his funeral, my mother-in-law told me she liked the ruby, cross pendant I was wearing. Because I wanted to cheer this sweet woman up, I immediately came up with a plan. I decided to buy her a pendant like mine. Because this pendant was also available in sapphire, I decided to purchase this stone for my mother-in-law. Sapphire is her birthstone. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of jewelry items to buy for a mother-in-law. Enjoy!
