Not that I am complaining considering I recently purchased my future hubby’s wedding ring. We went to two stores to check out men’s rings and found the second store because of a coupon I got in the mail. Is it tacky that I was going to use a coupon to buy his ring? I am actually glad I got that coupon because that’s how we ended up at the second store.
Future hubby didn’t like most of the rings we looked at. I really thought I was the picky one, until we went ring shopping. We finally found one that all three of us liked. Future hubby, myself, and the sales rep. Not that the sales reps opinion mattered much, but she seemed to want to add her two cents here and there. I didn’t mind considering she was really nice. Who are we kidding, all sales reps are nice when they’re about to get a sale. Unlike my David’s bridal experience with that sales rep.
Unfortunately the ring we all liked wasn’t a part of the sale where I could use the coupon, which sucked because it was a 30% off coupon. Fortunately for me, I was able to negotiate no tax. It wasn’t 30%, but I still saved 13%.
It’s amazing how cheap men’s wedding bands are compared to women’s. I know our rings have diamonds, and some people are into the cut, the carats, the size, the clarity, the shape, the color and so on. All things that don’t matter much to me at all. But still, even the men’s rings with diamonds are a few hundred dollars and even cheaper if you have a coupon. Lol! I am happy in my case since I didn’t have to dish out as much money as he did, which I know won’t matter much in a few months when we’re one. But in the mean time, I can save more for our future since his ring came in under budget.
