Scott Kay – Vintage
If there are seasons in the jewellery industry, this would be the “Wedding Band Season.” And, really, if you think about it, with so many weddings happening in the summer, it makes sense for couples to start ordering their wedding bands.
SK Cobalt – Native
Depending on the manufacturer of the wedding band, it can take anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks to get the band from the time of order. I would probably say that 95% of the time, we have to special order the wedding band in. The reason for this is because if you find one in our showcase you like, chances are it will not fit your finger. And if it has any kind of pattern/brushing/diamonds/or is made of a contemporary metal like Tungsten, Cobalt, or Titanium, then we will not be able to size it. This is why you will find most of our wedding bands as brass samples. We do have a lot of “live” bands in stock, however, and if they fit your finger and you like the style, then you are golden!
There are many options today as to the alloy of the band. You have 10K, 14K, 18K in yellow or white. There is even 19K white gold now, as well as palladium and platinum. The newer metals are Tungsten Carbide, Titanium, Ceramic, Cobalt, and Black Cobalt. With so many options it can be quite hard to decide, but the staff at Independent Jewellers can certainly help you with all your questions.
