When Darrell asked me to marry him, it was without a question a yes. I had been with this perfect human for almost five years at that time, and couldn’t picture my life without him.
When I dried the tears and finally took a good look at the engagement ring, I was speechless. He picked the perfect piece for me to wear for the rest of my life. Though a lot of couples do go and try on engagement rings and wedding bands throughout their relationships, we had never. So when he slipped on my beautiful engagement ring, I really had no idea what I wanted to sit next to it.
Finding the perfect Wedding Bands…
This process was so important to me before we even started. While an engagement ring represents the love and devotion, the wedding bands signify the couple’s union and eternal oneness as the couple pledges their love to one another and serves to seal these vows.
We were lucky enough to team up with Michael M Collection through this special process. Before visiting the store, we were sent their look book so we could have a look at their products and read through the information on them. Then, we visited one of their retailers where we sat with one of their highly trained representatives and learned about the significance of a wedding band and most importantly, we got to do this together. He also helped me try on wedding bands that would complement my engagement perfectly.
Michael M has a stunning collection of both Men’s and Women’s wedding bands. I found their collection to have such a variety of different styles between, pave, prong and channel that all exuded a beautiful sense of modern sophistication. Every single piece was so chic yet had a vintage flair which is timeless.
I ended up going with the ‘prong’ style wedding band. Because we travel a lot, I often leave my engagement ring at home so I wanted to make sure that when I wore my wedding band alone, it was a show stopper. The diamonds in my band are brilliant round shaped and are set in an eternity ring style on a 18-karat white gold band.
Darrell went the classic route with a touch of trend. He picked an 18-karat white gold wedding band with beveled ridges and a satin finish. Michael M had a variety of Men’s Wedding Bands that included diamonds and textured finishes but my husband is a man of simplicity and the vertical beveled ridges gave the perfect little unique touch to it.
We both loved so much, the process of picking out our wedding bands. Michael M made it so fun and easy but also such a knowledgeable experience. We couldn’t be happier with our choices and are very excited that we get to wear them forever.
