Pick One :)

I know the wedding's in more than 12 months from now, but i can't help but think about it. besides the engagement ring and the dress, which have been covered already, the most important thing to me & Long is our wedding bands.

so i've been looking online for things i like, i already have a favorite and he does too, but i wanted to hear what you guys think. its always better to consult more people before taking the jump. so, what would you prefer to wear? American, Canadian, Italian or French? =] i've tweeted about this and have gotten a few answers from my followers. Most prefer French even if i did not specify the subject. here are my selections:

AMERICAN
Tiffany & Co.
we would have matching bands because these appear in both men & women categories.



CANADIAN
Birks
Hers
the women's bands section was really lacking, there wasn't anything else that caught my eyes than these 2 simple diamond bands.
His
kind of vintage-y/classic looking..just like my engagement ring.



ITALIAN
Bvlgari
His & Hers
classic B.Zero1 rings, 3-band for him and 1-band for me
he really likes these because they look modern and the design is nice..i like them too, but they look like couple rings to me, too casual to be considered as wedding bands.



FRENCH
Cartier
OMFreakingGOD..need i say more?
i've always been an avid fan of Cartier's Love collection, simple, yet so meaningful.
will try to convince him =D


and YOU, dear readers...which one do you like?

i really love the Cartier bands, so I vote for that one too!

I like Birks the best, then Cartier. My thoughts are that something representing your love should be independent of a brand because you never know when that might tarnish *cough*HewlettPackardMarkHurdScandal*cough*

my vote goes to bvlgari and/or cartier! :)

SYLVIA said...

CANADIAN for sure! I think they look gorgeous, and are the most unique. And gotta represent right? ;)

BIRKS!!!!!!

TreezieS said...

Cartier all the way!!!

Kate said...

Canadian :) Didn't much like the italian ones and Tiffany's doesn't look mature enough.

esther said...

birks. definitely birks (:

CINDY said...

I'd say Cartier is the winner here! It is beyond gorgeous! I think it would look good as a his and hers ring too, its not too casual & expresses the elegance & beauty that the others lack.

Jennie said...

I think the Birks look the best, then it's the Cartier.

The Tiffany rings are pretty!

Like Birks the best; don't like brand names on wedding brands. All choices are gorgeous tho, GLD.

kalai said...

birks looks nice~ but too normal. tiffany doesn't look serious enough. more of a fashion ring. i would wear them alone. but wouldnt get them as wedding bands.

i go for bvlgari or cartier. simple but nice and stylish~ xx

no lies. just love. said...

Love the Birks one the best...Canadian all the way! :D
just my two cents

Hi,

Dont you want to have the same brand like the ring Long gave you? May I ask which brand it is? I like Cartier,look kinda clean and timeless:)

birks!!
cartier/tiffany/bvlgari are nice but they look more like a normal ring than a wedding band

miemiemie said...

maddy said...

I love Birks, especially the simple ring on the top that you choice. Very elegant looking

it depends how ur engagement ring looks?? make it match!!! did u do a post on the acutal ring/..

bebe said...

For me personally. I would stick to a classic wedding band. No need for labels, brands, meaningless symbols, etc.etc. on it. All you need is something simple (maybe with a diamond or two for him). No need for anything trendy because trends fade.. classic is forever.

As for your wedding band.. keep it simple as well with a band that will match your engagement ring.
Try to keep them similar so it looks like a matching set and not so different, so when you wear the two they aren't clashing against eachother. ^^

GL. =D

I would say either the Birks or Cartier. I remember you saying that the both of you have matching rings from Tiffany's already; wedding bands are special since it signifies your marriage, might as well go with something that really "speaks" to you.

cocoabee said...

i think the birks are the nicest!

Birks. I love the simple and classic look for wedding bands. And the ones for His are also really nice. I don't recommend having a brand logo on the rings. It's a little tacky for wedding bands. So Birks for me!

MakingMochi said...

I think the Birks bands look gorgeous! it's simple, elegant, and timeless! (:

Swtess said...

Definitely Cartier if you can get him to agree. As much as I like Tiffany, it just doesn't seem something to wear as a wedding band. Plus I would not want to have my wedding band have Tiffany&Co for all to see like that. Birks is nice too if you can't get hubby to agree with Cartier.

Birks! It looks simple and timeless

Miss Queenie said...

thank you all for your opinion and input!! =D although i LOVE tiffany in general..i personally think these dont look serious enough to be wedding rings. so the American is the 1st one to be eliminated.

i was in NYC recently and had the chance to drop by the bvlgari store to try these rings with my fiance. he really liked them but i felt neutral. they aren't ugly...the design is definitely special..but they look more like couple rings to me. so..no-go for the italian.

the final choice was between the gorgeous Birks bands and the Cartier Love rings...and i presented these choices to the fiance and he clearly prefers the Cartier bands more because we had tried them as well and they looked really nice on. and the Birks ones looks too old he says...

anyways, the Cartier has always been a favorite of mine and since he stopped his choice on them as well...we will go with these!! =D i'm so ecstatic..and i thank everyone once again for your honest response. i love you guys xox
