This isn't really a craft-related question, I know... But I figured someone might be able to help me...

The hubby-to-be (ack!) and I are looking for wedding rings (hooray!) and we have no idea what we're doing.  All we know is that we want:
(1) no diamonds or stones of any kind
(2) white gold
(3) we'd love to have something handcrafted and somewhat unique

We went to the "jewelry district" which is right in Downtown Crossing and there are lots of interesting white gold bands to choose from but every store seems to have the same exact selection.  It's like they all were pumped out of the same factory.  It just kinda feels like shopping for a wedding ring at the Gap!

Can anyone recommend a good place in the Boston area that does handcrafted rings?

Thanks!

We got ours on the internet.  He got mine here: http://jurbanrings.com/ and I LOVE it.

I got his at another store and I can't remember the name.  At the site above, it will take several weeks to get the rings as they are hand-made.

what about commisioning them from the mass art kids?  they have a jewelery dept. and i'm sure they'd appreciate the business / experience.

Interesting idea.  Along similar lines, someone mentioned the North Bennett Street school as a possibility too.  Thanks for this idea!

 The  Claddaugh ring is  probably what I will choose as a wedding ring  .

 The meaning behind it , is just so sweet . It doesn't matter if you are an Irish girl or not   Smiley


Most people have seen one ,and they aren't that hard to find

The 2 hands  = friendship

the heart  = love

the crown = Loyalty




 the story behind it

I originally wanted one of these rings and still do (heh)

but we opted to get our rings at

http://www.bluenile.com

since my fingers are really skinny and will most likely someday get bigger and it's hard to get the "treasure ring" resized.

I know! I knew you'd like it! I think there's a place on Newbury St. that sells them. I'm hoping that someday I'll get one for an anniversary or something. I saw an ad for them in a magizine years ago and ripped it out (I think I was in the dr.s office heh) and still have it saved.
