Really excited about this cos the wedding band has been worn as a symbol of marriage for many centuries. It's something very significant to every couple, and I feel the rings reinforce the vows that were exchanged..To make it more meaningful, he will buy my wedding band and I will buy his wedding band =)
Something I found on the internet to share.
The Exchanging of Rings Ceremony is the most common ritual performed at marriage ceremonies. The Bride and Groom, after stating vows to the other, exchange a ring. The ring, which is a complete circle with no break and no end or beginning, which means that it just goes on and on eternally. And, since folklore has it that the fourth finger of the left hand has a vein leading directly to the heart, it is only natural that both engagement and wedding rings would be worn on this particular finger, which was once reputed to be a direct route to the heart.
we went wedding band shopping on Chu 3 and yesterday too. We went to almost every reputable jeweler to check out their wedding collections!
Was still deciding whether I want a thin or thick band. hmmm...
Thick bands can be nice as you can engrave wordings or dates in the internal side of the ring but some thin bands can look very elegant and classy too. We initially wanted a pair of matching bands so that it is more meaningful but the kinds he like are very manly (kinda square type). It's really prettie difficult to find a pair that we both like, so we decide to mix and match. It's something we gonna wear everyday, we have to lurve it, right? lol
Love this ring from the destinee range with half circle diamonds!
have some lee hwa points to offset the price..
We went to the more upmarket boutiques (tiffany and cartier). Must say that Tiffany’s service is great! The SA even thanked me so politely for my time to come down just to TRY their rings..(there's not one hint of sarcasm, a simple, genuine "thank you for coming down..." that kind of thing) wahhhhhhh... not the typical "u-dont-buy-from-me, i-give-me-buay-song-face" that kind. keke
Saw one angmo beside me looking at a piece of rock in his hand (yeah, it's a rock) and the Sales Person was saying it is 2 carat and cost S$34,900.
For a moment, i let out a "silent-fwah!" expression wahhaha. Can buy a cherry QQ car aledi. =p
can't afford those anyway, freaking expensive!
he likes this from cartier in white gold..
Gonna decide this weekend as there's no time to lose. if customization is required, it may take another 2 months for it to be ready~
one more day to the weekends, to more band shopping and to chingay parade... town sure bery crowded =(
