What the most important thing when looking for a wedding ring.

The perfect diamond wedding ring is a ring that compliments your engagement ring.  If you get something too large it will likely look un proportion.  We recommend the band width of your diamond wedding ring to be slightly larger or smaller in width.  Contrast is key!  This will keep the focus on your engagement ring and not take away from the beauty and value it has while adding the right amount of sparkle.   See below a few examples of customers diamond engagement ring with matching wedding band for inspiration.

How do I find out her finger size?

How do you find her finger size without ruining the surprise?  First, congratulations on finding your special someone.  Now it’s time to find the finger size.  This can be tricky, but here are a few suggestions to help as you do recon work.

1) Kidnap a ring she may have and get is sized.  Even if its not the correct size you can still get an idea what ball park you’re in.  This will help you make an educated guess.  Don’t worry sizing most rings up or down 1 size is not a big deal and will not affect the integrity of the ring unless there are 100′s of little pave stones.

2) If you dont want to take a ring you can trace the circumference or diameter on a piece of paper then convert that measurement into a finger size using sizing conversion chart.

3) Average size 6 fits a person who is 140 lbs and 5’6″.

4) Press the ring in a bar of soap and make an impression.

5) Try to get her talking about engagement rings and sizing.  Go to the mall with her and stop in a store, make up a reason about getting someone a bday gift or something special for your mom.  Look at styles and ask them to size her.

6) If all else fails ask around.  Perhaps she has mentioned something to her mom or friends.  If that do not know you can ask them to ask her so you’re off the hook.

Don’t worry you’re not alone on this and most jewelers have thought about the possibility that you may order the wrong size.  Guesstimate and if you’re wrong no problem.  Pompeii3 offer free sizing for 6 months.  Some metals are not sizable such as cobalt, titanium, and tungsten.  Some ring styles such as eternity rings and micro pave bands cannot be sized.  Titanium rings made of really hard steel and even when heated they cannot be stretched or compressed like precious metal rings such as gold and platinum.  Micro pave bands cannot be sized more than 1/2 size because there are so many small prongs they are likely to come loose and have stones fall out.  Eternity rings are not sizable as well because they have diamonds that go all the way around the band.  Hope this info help and good luck with the proposal!

What is the best wedding band?

What is the best wedding band?  The best wedding band is made to your size. The best wedding band is made from extractude tubing and completely seamless.

Sizing rings is not good for the structural integrity.  Cutting and soldering will create a weak spot in the ring kind of like breaking a bone, it will eventually repair but where it joins is not as strong as it originally was.  Given that you will be wearing this ideally for the rest of your life you want to make sure is durable.

At Pompeii3 we make all of our bands from extracted tubing, this means we are making the wedding band from a solid piece of metal instead of casting.  This type of production ensures the ring has no porosity or brittle pieces.  Large wedding band manufacturers like ourselves usually buy tubing because we can make many rings as oppose to smaller shops the investment is too much.

The best wedding band is one that is seamless.  At Pompeii3 we never bend metal around and solder it to make a wedding band.  Its made from solid metal tubing to ensure structure and integrity.  Our wedding bands will last a lifetime.
