Excellent quality, better price! :D

(The below statements of value were true at the time of purchase in the early part of 2011 <<< Prices may have changed).
If you're reading this review with a serious view to purchase: Aren't you a lucky little thing?!
Congratulations on your engagement and all the best for your wedding day! :-)
Before we were married we shopped around for rings and in the process we very quickly discovered the size of ring we needed.
Armed with this knowledge we proceeded to look online for wedding rings..... This ring was two thirds (Yes! 66%!!) cheaper than in any of the high street shops and boutiques we visited!
Example: I bought the engagement ring from Ernest Jones. Because of this they offered a 10% discount on Wedding rings... But the plain platinum wedding band was still coming in at around £850!! Buying through Amazon was SOOOO much cheaper!!
Okay, so there's no offer of cover / protection / guarantee on rings purchased from Amazon.... BUT when you're making a saving of ~£700? Insurance no longer matters!
Hell, you could buy TWO and keep one as a spare!
Put it to one side and save it "just in case" you lose it (or it gets stolen / damaged / etc).
One of the key things I learned was that manufacturer sizes CAN vary considerably (they claim to be one size, but when the ring is measured they're actually a whole half size larger or smaller than the size stated), but this was NOT the case with this ring!
The size stated for this ring was exactly right (we even had it measured in our local H.Samuel to double check <== A little cheeky, I know :-) ).
If you know the size you need, you can be sure that you're getting exactly what you've ordered!.
This particular ring states "light"... And as I said before: We shopped around before deciding to buy online, as a result we felt the weight of many different types and styles of ring... And by no stretch of it imagination is this ring "light".
If anything it's more of a "medium".
Please don't be put off by this: It's not SO heavy you'd rue the day you bought it. My point is that you're getting a lot of metal for your money.
You're not going to find your left arm "bulking-up".... It's simply a nice reassuring weight that implies value and quality.
I couldn't recommend buying through Amazon enough!
In my case: It was hassle free and the package arrived within 2 days of ordering!... What more could you reasonably ask for? :-)
You'll be buying this ring for your wedding day and hopefully you'll only ever get married once.
So making sure you get the right ring is REALLY important because you will be wearing it for the rest of your life!
Platinum may be a little more expensive than white or yellow gold... But if you're only ever going to buy ONE RING? You really should treat yourself to something special ;-)
Not a day passes when I don't notice my wedding ring and think "Holy cr4p! That's PLATINUM!!!".
There is definitely something special about platinum... It's nicely understated and although it may not be as overtly flashy as yellow gold (which I consider to be a bonus) it makes every day feel like a special occasion :D
Buy Platinum! Buy from Amazon! It's a winning combination.
I hope this review helps in making your decision and all the best with your big day :-)
