Finding the Right Jeweller for your Wedding

I was speaking to a friend last night who relayed her nightmarish story about her great ring debacle. She has been married now since June and still doesn’t have her rings. Her then-boyfriend/now-husband wanted something unique and very special for the love of his life and contacted a jeweller to make a custom engagement ring that he helped design. It was beautiful, it was perfect and she said “Yes!” Fast forward a year and a half later to a week before the wedding and lo and behold, the bride still doesn’t have her wedding band and they have now been through two jewellers. The nightmare continued after the wedding. Although they were able to get a wedding band made for them in time for the wedding, it wasn’t perfect and had many flaws. So off to a third jeweller who then proceeded to damage the original engagement ring, leaving the newlyweds out of much money and quite distraught. They have since been to two more jewellers, the engagement ring and wedding band have been re-made about 5 or 6 times and they are hoping against all hope to pick up the final rings this week.

I have never heard of such a nightmare! We had quite the opposite experience at our jeweller, Goldform. We originally went to them to get my engagement ring resized. The store Thomas got the engagement ring from didn’t do ring sizing so I asked friends and was recommended to Goldform – a little jewellery store in Westboro. We brought my engagement ring in and they re-sized it in less than a week! We were so impressed that we began speaking to them about doing our unique, custom made wedding bands. We wanted something very specific and they were able to accommodate every need we had. They worked with us every step of the way and we went in several times to oversee the progress. The jewellers really knew their stuff and made suggestions that would not only fit our budget, but look fantastic.

I couldn’t have been happier with our experience with Goldform and I was so saddened to hear about my friends journey.
