There are a lot of factors that go into choosing a wedding band. The quality, the materials, the price — they all play a big part in the decision. But what matters most is the emotional connection to the ring. Does it make the bride’s face light up? Does the groom beam with pride when he wears it? When you find the right one, you just know.

Engraving a personalized message of love on the inside of a wedding band makes it you unique to you and your spouse. Your wedding date, special nicknames you have for each other, a sentiment that means a lot to you both — these are just a few engraving examples that can add a special touch to your rings. Yes, an engraved wedding band is a romantic gesture, but it’s also a lasting expression of love between you and your new spouse. Your rings will likely become family heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.

Engraving and Personalizations Options from Furrer Jacot

Since 1858, in the Swiss town of Schaffhausen, Furrer Jacot has produced made-to-order individually crafted wedding bands and jewelry according to the highest standards of Swiss craftsmanship. The FJ trademark stamped into every piece symbolizes this traditional company’s dedication to and responsibility for the quality and authenticity of the materials used and the workmanship of its products.

Below are the different engraving options offered by Furrer Jacot, as well as a few ideas for what to engrave on your wedding bands.

Hand Engraving: There was a time when all engraving was done by hand, but today the art is known only by a select few. A hand-engraved ring preserves the hand of the artisan, so no matter the message or sentiment, it truly remains one-of-a-kind.

Laser Script or Block Engraving: A laser burns your personal message into the surface of the ring in script or block lettering. This cutting-edge technology provides unsurpassed detail and depth.

A Message in Your Own Handwriting: Take your ring’s customization a step further by engraving your personal message inside your spouse’s wedding band in your own handwriting. The moment they see their wedding band with your handwriting on it, they will know that ring was made just for them.

A Poem: A poem or any other short writing piece that is special to the two of you can also be engraved inside your wedding bands.

At Eiseman Jewels, our commitment to providing the highest level of service, quality and expertise is evident from the jewelry designers we choose to align ourselves with — including one of our newest designers, Single Stone.

Single Stone draws inspiration from vintage details and the charm of antique diamonds for their engagement rings and wedding bands. Whether you’re searching for a carefully restored vintage piece or a custom, one-of-a-kind heirloom, each of Single Stone’s stunning pieces is designed to mark life’s most treasured moments.

The foundation for the Single Stone brand was laid in 1988 by founder Ari Madilian, who started his career working with his mentor learning about diamonds and the jewelry industry. A year later, Ari’s wife Corina joined him in designing and producing jewelry using vintage diamonds. Once the allure of the vintage diamonds captured their hearts, there was no going back. In 2008, they decided to launch the Single Stone collection as a full brand.

All Single Stone jewelry is manufactured by hand in Los Angeles and is made specifically for the center stone and features old-cut stones from the late 1800s to early 1900s. Deriving inspiration from the vintage pieces in their collection, Single Stone’s new designs incorporate both vintage and modern elements for a charming look that’s fresh and classic at the same time.

Single Stone pieces are designed to become a part of the wearer’s everyday life, and to be dressed up or down with effortless sophistication. They’re meant to be worn by someone who wants a unique piece of jewelry and who appreciates the beauty of diamonds that were cut over 100 years ago. This jewelry is timeless and sophisticated with an edge, and is as individual as the wearer itself.

modern wedding vows

Weddings today are all about personalization—those little touches that embody who the two of you are as a couple. One way to put your special stamp on the wedding (without spending a penny) is by writing your own custom wedding vows.

Writing your own vows may seem daunting, but you can’t go wrong when you speak from the heart. Here are three modern examples of other couples who added a personal twist to their vows.

modern wedding vows

Short, Sweet and Unique — Gregory to Michelle

“I love you for your beauty, your intelligence, your kindness… and for the way you always know how to make me feel so special. So on top of all the other vows that I will make to you on our wedding day, I also vow to always appreciate how lucky I am to have someone who makes me feel the way you do and to continue to try as hard as I can to make you feel as special as you make me feel, forever and ever.”

Quirky and Rhyming — Asia and Craig

“Yes, we will love with all our heart, from now until death do us part. And we will love if we are rich, and if we’re broke and in a ditch. And when we’re fit, and when we’re sick—oh, CAN’T we get this finished quick? And we will love through good and bad, and we will love when glad or sad.”

Lovingly Humorous — Kendall to Justin

“In sickness and in health: I promise to take care of you, even when you’ve over-indulged the night before. For richer or for poorer: I promise not to spend all our money at Nordstrom.”

Sincere and Slightly Silly — Darcy and Andrew
Darcy: “Andy, with you I feel complete. You brought magic to my life, and I look forward to making each other happy, always. No matter what life brings, I know we will always have each other. Our love is rare. I only wish you had talked some sense into me earlier.”

Andrew: “My sweetie, my bride, wonderful things happen to those who keep trying. Since the first time I met you, I wanted to make you happy, even when you draw those pictures of me that show me with less hair than I like to think I have. Now your happiness is my guide, and I will love you for every second of the rest of my life.

 



EISEMAN PERFECT PAIRS

Wedding bands are more than just baubles to be exchanged during your wedding ceremony. They also serve as a symbol of the love you’ll treasure for the rest of your lives. When choosing a wedding band, it’s best to choose a style that looks fresh and stylish, yet will remain timelessly beautiful for years to come.

Eiseman Jewels’ specialists have found the top bands for brides and grooms in 2015. So what makes these rings stand out?

EISEMAN PERFECT PAIRS

For Her:

Stacked bands. A dazzling alternative to traditional engagement rings and single wedding bands— stacked bands are all the rage, and it seems to be trend with real staying power. The sky’s the limit when it comes to this modern look, whether you choose channel-set or pavé eternity bands, thin delicate bands or even just simple metal bands. Multiple bands stacked together can be worn with or without your engagement ring.

Rose gold. Rose gold, also known as pink gold, is yellow gold with a high copper content. Because copper tarnishes over time, rose gold’s subtle and delicate color may intensify with age, much like your love for one another.

For Him:

Yellow gold. Classic and chic, yellow gold is a wedding band staple, whether as a simple solid gold band or one accented with diamonds. For men who are going from bare hands to wearing a ring every day for the rest of their life, a yellow gold ring is the perfect transitional piece. It’s simple, elegant and versatile without looking cumbersome or flashy.

Black diamonds and accents. Stand out from the crowd with a black diamond wedding band. Magnificently masculine, black diamonds are among the most rare and expensive diamonds in the world, and they add a touch of exoticism to your band. The color black, whether in a diamond or an accent stripe, will draw eyes to your distinctive band every time you wear it.

Choose the Right Engagement Ring

When you’re shopping for an engagement ring, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the science of a diamond and focus on the “Four Cs”­—cut, color, clarity and carat weight. And while it’s important to know what you’re paying for when you make this important purchase, it’s easy to get caught up in the technicalities and forget that, above all, you’re looking for a ring that’s right for you or your fiancée.

At Eiseman Jewels, it’s our responsibility to guide our clients so they can feel confident in their purchase.

“I can show a bride or groom all the diamonds we have in the case, but what matters most is the emotional connection to the ring,” says one Eiseman specialist. “Does it make the bride’s face light up? Does the groom beam with pride seeing how happy she is when she wears it? When you find the right one, you just know.”

Here are a few ways to decipher which ring is the one for her.

Shop together (even if she doesn’t know you’re shopping)

Lots of couples ring shop together. But guys who prefer to surprise their girlfriends don’t have to be totally blatant about ring shopping. Pop into Eiseman Jewels with your lady under the guise of needing to pick up a gift for mom. Chances are, she’s already shared some of her ring preferences with you—this trip will give her the chance to confirm her taste in jewelry. And the same holds true for ladies who want to be surprised—finding yourself in a jewelry store with your boyfriend gives you the perfect opportunity to drop all kinds of hints.

Choose the Right Engagement Ring

Get second (and third and fourth) opinions

Guys who are going it alone should know that an engagement ring is just too big of a purchase not to get another opinion on. Enlist the help of her friends or sisters who know her style. You may even want to take them shopping with you for moral support.

Choose the Right Engagement Ring

Go custom

If you can’t find something that you both love, consider a custom ring. You can take the stone on one ring and add it to the setting on another to make your perfect engagement ring. Or talk to a designer about creating a unique ring from scratch. In either case, it’s not as expensive or complicated as you might think.

Visit Eiseman Jewels at NorthPark Center and let us help you choose the perfect engagement ring.



MARSALA

Somewhere between wine and terracotta lives Marsala—an earthy, reddish hue that’s been named Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015.

MARSALA

The Pantone company, which touts itself as the “global authority on color,” says: “Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind, and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

MARSALA

Equally at home in traditional or modern designs, Marsala is also a versatile color for weddings. And even though deep red is usually associated with fall and winter weddings, Marsala paired with blush and ivory makes a gorgeous palette for any season. Pair the Color of the Year with yellow and gold for a springy look, or with bright corals and oranges for a summery atmosphere. Together with pink, gray and cream, Marsala feels very romantic. The color has a sophisticated earthiness, which makes it look beautiful with a variety of metallics like gold, rose gold and copper.

MARSALA

When it comes to wedding flowers, bright pops of Marsala garden roses and hydrangeas are stunning. Dark red peonies and dahlias in lush bouquets full of dark, leafy greens (we love them layered with eucalyptus leaves) evoke a romantic quality. And Marsala dahlias make beautiful boutonnieres. Put flowers in your hair and handfuls of wine-colored petals in the tiny hands of your flower girl.

MARSALA

A gorgeous white bridal gown surrounded by Marsala bridesmaids’ dresses is sure to draw the eye. And a groom and groomsmen in muted blue suits with Marsala ties and matching boutonnieres would look utterly charming. Add touches of Marsala to your reception with linens, chair ties and candles. Artfully arranged seating cards and wedding favors—like bottles of wine with personalized labels—can also play into the theme.

MARSALA

Finally, this lush and inviting color looks good against every skin tone. Sephora already has an entire collection of shadows, blushes, lipsticks and nail polishes dedicated to it! And last—but never least—add some elegant, unexpected bridal jewelry in the form of Marsala-toned rings, earrings and necklaces.

SCHWARTZ WEDDING

You’ve loved your engagement ring from the moment he slid it on your finger. But now it’s time to select the wedding band—not only for you, but for your fiancé as well. Although there are no set rules on choosing a wedding band, there are some things the two of you should consider. The specialists at Eiseman Jewels offer these tips for choosing wedding bands you will both cherish for a lifetime.

waterfall_ring_with_bands.jpg

His & Hers

When choosing wedding bands, decide as a couple whether or not you want matching bands. If that is the case, then you will need to find a set that flatters your engagement ring, but is still masculine enough for him.

Perfect Match

You should check with your fiancé to see if your engagement ring already has a complimentary wedding band available. Wedding bands that are specially made to match an engagement ring provide perfect symmetry—the two rings paired together often look like a single ring.

Unique Combination

Even if your engagement ring has a matching band, that doesn’t mean you can’t choose a different band. It’s a popular trend with more non-traditional brides to choose a wedding band that doesn’t perfectly match the engagement ring. It’s an interesting, offbeat look that frees you up to wear just the wedding band or engagement ring alone, or to wear the band and ring on different fingers.

Something Old

Consider using a family heirloom or a unique vintage find as your wedding band. If your engagement ring doesn’t sit properly on a vintage band, take it to one of the expert craftsmen at Eiseman Jewels to have it resized and reshaped.

Custom Tailored

Eiseman Jewels has long been regarded as one of the country’s premier jewelry designers. We can help you and your fiancé create a one-of-a-kind custom wedding band that’s uniquely you.

Size It Up

Try not to choose a wedding band that overpowers your engagement ring. Wider bands look better on women with longer fingers, while brides with shorter fingers should choose a thinner band. Also, consider if the band will be easy to resize if your fingers happen to change size over the years. An eternity band with diamonds or gemstones will be more difficult to resize, as will a ring with intricate engravings or designs all the way around it.

Engraving Inside

Many couples want to engrave special messages or the date of their marriage on the inside their rings. Eiseman Jewels is happy to provide this service to its clients. Don’t wait until the last minute to get this done, however. Be sure to be specific about your engraving requirements, especially in terms of style, font and size.

Lifelong Commitment

Finally, remember that your wedding band is forever. Choose bands that are not only comfortable, but which you both can envision wearing every day for the rest of your lives.
