It's something that should be relatively painless, relatively fun, and relatively easy. Of course, it's not. Especially when you start going around to all the different jewelers who start recommending products, that are in no way, shape, or form CLOSE to your personal style. And if it's the first time you've been to a jeweler, you can be overwhelmed by all the different styles and numbers. What size ring do you wear? What about the metal? Do you want gold? What karat? Do you want a diamond? Does he? What cut? What's your budget? Are you going to engrave it? How wide?
The list goes on and on and on. I remember walking into the store with DadGuy, knowing that I wanted something simple with clean lines, and that's about it. What I got was some guy, wearing more jewelry than any man should, working on commission, trying to talk me out of the ring I knew I wanted.
We ended up walking away, and tryed a few different ring shoppes. At every counter, I ran into the same problem. I remember telling DadGuy how I wished I could just order a ring without having to explain to anyone why I wanted the ring I wanted.
When we finally got married, it was to the right person, but with the wrong ring.
That was about 8 years ago. Three years ago, the setting on that ring broke, and I've never gotten around to fixing it. I mean, why would I? I'd rather get a whole new ring, sans diamond.
Enter Superior Wedding Rings.
They contacted Motherboard and I, and asked if either one of us would maybe like a new wedding ring? Specifically a Tungsten band. I immediately said Yes! I'd love to try one! Then I picked out the wedding ring my little heart has desired for the last eight years.
Isn't it gorgeous? This little beauty is an 8mm Tungsten wedding band, with a brushed inlay.
Don't know what Tungsten is exactly? Well for one, it's virutally indestructible. That means, that unless you have a run in with a chainsaw, there's not going to be a scratch. And the Tungsten bands from Superior Wedding Rings DO NOT contain any cobalt. Cobalt in tungsten is bad. It will make your finger AND your ring turn pretty shades of green.
Superior Wedding Rings also offers a LIFETIME WARRANTY. Not just on their Tungsten bands, but on ALL the rings they sell. They also offer engraving in a variety of different fonts.
The prices are reasonable too, because they aren't working on comission. (Praise Oprah)
AND the best part? Is that they're offering one lucky reader a set of man and women Tungsten wedding bands FOR FREE. The rings will be in the MMB July giveaway, so make sure you're subscribed to the blog so you know when to enter to win! (*cough*July 27*cough)
