I'm getting married soon, and I'm trying to pick out a ring. I really like the idea of a plain, sterling silver wedding band, but I know next to nothing about jewelry. If you work regularly with silver, or have silver jewelry, can you tell me if you think a silver ring would stand up ok to everyday wear? Would it scratch and tarnish quickly? [more inside]
We are going to be in Paris next week, and want to go wedding ring shopping at a sort of vintage or antique jewellery store. I'm looking for a simple band for my tiny fingers. I'm looking for a nice band for under about $450, used is good. We don't want to go to the Wedding Ring Superstore or wherever. Do you know the perfect place to shop? Ideally, we walk in to a place with a lot of rings, I try on 6 of them, and BAM. job done. Thank you!
I'm about to get married and can already anticipate times in which I will not want the ring on my hand (like when I'm whitewater kayaking, for fear of losing it), but I'll still want it with me. I'm thinking maybe I'll get a simple, sturdy necklace and a little clip of some kind. Any suggestions for said necklace and/or clip? Also will the stainless clip damage 18k gold?
Any suggestions for jewelery stores in the NYC area that have unusual wedding bands? The Clay Pot in Brooklyn is a perfect example of what we're looking for. Also maybe interested in vintage. Where should we go? Thanks!
Is there any noticeable, physical difference in any of these wooden rings? Moreover, are any of them a better choice for a wedding ring that will be worn daily? (Links and more wooden ring info than you ever wanted inside) [more inside]
We need an awesome small (3 to 5 person) wedding band for our Los Angeles wedding in June. I've tried all the booking agents, my local nightclubs, even craigslist but have yet to find the right match! Any recommendations? [more inside]

My wedding band is plain and made of yellow gold. My watch is stainless steel. I wear both on my left side. I haven't worn my watch since the wedding because I'm (perhaps unduly) bothered by the clash between the gold ring + silver watch. [more inside]
I am a man and I'm getting married! I need a lot of help picking out a wedding band. I know my size and am looking for a non-traditional ring. Specifically I am looking at tungsten and titanium rings or rings with some kind of pattern. [more inside]
I'm looking for some reputable online retailers selling 100% nickle-free tungsten rings. I need a men's wedding band; turns out I'm allergic to the first one I got, as a result of the nickle fusion process or whatever. It seems most retailers do not specifically state whether the ring is made with nickle or cobalt. The claim that tungsten rings are always hypoallergenic isn't completely true...
