You can design and make your own, under the guidance of a jeweler. I think that is very romantic for now and in the future. This is what we plan to do. Branches in all big cities.

Welll, hmm.... we ordered our wedding bands online while in the Philippines, had them engraved and arranged for them to be shipped to arrive at home shortly after we got back to the States. So I guess that means we bought them while in the Philippines... :lol:

My wife picked them out, and they are very nice.

We bought ours in the PH. It was just the girls wedding ring that had 7 diamonds and costed $500 since the groom received my family's ring or an heirloom. So it was pretty pricey but we did save something with the groom's ring.

If it is a band that you want then buy in the US bc as what others have said it has insurance and quality is assured. I would say look into Zales for bands. Of course PH would offer cheaper ones like 2 wedding bands for $500 or lower but just try to check Diamond Fire Manila facebook page bc they might have sales and you can customize also for an inexpensive price :)

You guys are buying rings already? I thought it best to wait a couple years and make sure she deserves it. Start small, then trade up every 5 years or so, right? dancin5hr.gif

You talking about the ring? or the bride? Once they hit 40 trade her in for 2 20s? That is if you're wired for 220! haha

Way to go DavenRoxy! I'm starting out with those rings you find inside cracker jacks!!! Hehehe, but seriously I've given her an engagement ring. And we both decided on a simple matching wedding bands for the wedding. Elegant, presentable, memorable - not to break the bank. Now if only we'd get out of AP.........

This is the site we used, rings arrived perfect, engraving was perfect, sizing was perfect. They even do 1/4 sizes.
