How much to spend on an engagement ring?

How much should you spend on a diamond engagement ring?

This question often gets asked, and there is no reason why you should overspend especially with all the online deals we offer.  That being said, our rule of thumb is you should spend 2 months salary on an engagement ring.  Our feeling is a traditional engagement ring features a genuine diamonds.  No a lab created diamond, not a moissanite diamond, not a Charles and covard fake diamond a 100% genuine real diamond made of carbon.  Dont deny the one you love a genuine diamond engagement ring regardless of the size.  You would rather have a small but real diamond, than a syntetic replica that is large.  Can anyone tell the difference, yes!  You can tell and anyone that has a real diamond can tell.  Buy a genuine diamond engagement ring and spend 2 months salary.

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.
