Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes wedding ring shopping can be overwhelming. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we’ve seen from our customers about simple engagement rings.

What do you look for when choosing a simple engagement ring?

You’ll want to understand the style preferences of the person who’ll be wearing the ring. You’ll also want to ensure that the ring maker creates a quality product that’ll last and always look great. This means high-quality diamonds, as well as experience in designing classic styles. Lastly, you’ll want to make sure that the materials in your ring are ethically sourced and ethically made.

Can I add stones to the band later?

Many couples start out with simpler wedding bands to match their active lifestyle, and later as their day-to-day becomes more low key they seek out jewelry with more gemstones or diamonds. Changing your style is common, and while shopping for a brand new jewelry piece later is one way to manage this, others try to find alterable wedding jewelry the first time around. A lot of these rings can hold diamonds of different sizes. It’s possible to upgrade the size of your center stone, but otherwise, the ring is as-is. If you want a three-stone engagement ring, make sure to mention that specifically to your jeweler.

How much does a simple wedding rings cost?

It depends on a lot of factors. It depends on the size of the stones, the shape of the stones, and the type of precious metal in the wedding bands. Whether you are looking for a bride, groom, or multiple pieces for your wedding, the best way to approximate your wedding band’s price is to try building your own.
