Wedding Rings: Booked!

Last Friday, we spent a very productive day at the bridal fair because we booked not one, but two suppliers! Yey! :)

First stop was our wedding rings. In the previous bridal fair, we found a design that we both loved in Suarez Wedding Rings at the price that we could afford. So at last weekend's fair, I went straight to their booth to inquire. Our chosen ring was still there, but then I saw another ring that had a similar design, but was more aesthetically pleasing. The new ring was thicker and had round edges, which made the matte white gold center more prominent. It has a more expensive price tag though, so I was having second thoughts on whether we would choose it as our ring design.

I tried looking for other options at the different booths, but everything was P40,000 and above, which was way beyond our budget. So I went back to the Suarez booth, this time with Mox in tow, to choose between the two designs. Mox fell in love with the second ring instantly and wanted to book them already, but I was still hesitant to do so because of our ever-growing wedding budget.

Seeing our dilemma, our AE from Suarez said that we could choose the cheaper ring design and customize it to look similarly like the second ring. He suggested to dull the flat edges of the ring and make it rounder to avoid wounding the skin. He also adjusted the fit of the ring to a semi-comfort fit so that it would rest comfortably on our fingers. These customizations increased the overall price of the rings, but it was still within our budget so we decided to book Suarez and get our original ring choice.


The picture above is our chosen ring design. Since we booked them at the bridal fair, we got two 0.02 carat diamonds on each ring for free! Mox will have some bling on his ring. Haha!

Suarez offers layaway plans at a maximum term of nine months, so it wouldn't be too heavy on our pockets to pay for the rings. But since our wedding is still more than a year away, our AE allowed us to pay for the rings for 12 months, without interest! Now that's a good deal right? :)

Suarez also offers free resizing services and lifetime warranty for their rings. In addition, if we plan to upgrade our rings any time in the future, we can trade in our rings and their value will be deducted from the price of the new rings. So all we have to pay is the remaining balance. Isn't that neat? Haha!

Our AE said that we could drop by their Gateway branch by mid-March to check out our rings. Whee! I'm so excited to see the finished product. :)

  1. Hi! First of all, YAY we booked the same supplier. Its very comforting to know we got the same supplier and almost the same ring, we opted for the white gold to match my engagement ring.

    I agree that they have the reasonable prices and the layaway plans is very helpful :D looking forward to see you in bridal fairs! :D

  2. The design is very dainty and simple. I like it. It's also good to know that you got them for a good price. Would you know if they can customize diamond wedding rings for women? My fiancee is looking for one in the Philippines.

  3. Hi Nat, I booked the same HW Flat ring only 2-tone and mine's with three stones tas 1 for the bf kasi free naman. We just booked them today. They're supposed to dull the edges din nung sa amin and with additional 2600 ata yun. Wow! :)

    Now, I tried looking for blogs written about Suarez and there was one na disappointed sa thickness nung actual rings nila vs. the mock rings na fi-nit nila. How was yours like? I missed out on the comfort fit chuvaness. Hindi yan nabanggit sa amin and I think hindi ko nabasa? Wah! Is it best to have it requested? I don't know the difference kasi sa feel nun sa finger.

    Lastly, andyan pa ba yung contract mo? Can I compare notes with yours? Check ko lang some specifications nung sa amin vs yours for my peace of mind. HAHA!

    Thanks! Naging private message na 'to.

    1. Hi!

      When I saw our actual rings, mas makapal na siya kesa dun sa mock rings na naisukat namin kasi nadagdagan na siya ng thickness dahil ginawang semi-comfort fit. And so far, satisfied kami sa itsura niya. Ayaw ko rin naman kasi ng masyadong makapal na rings so saktong-sakto for me yung thickness ng wedding rings namin. :)

      Pag ginawa kasing comfort fit yung isang ring, mas magiging rounded na ang itsura niya tapos mas masarap na siyang suotin sa fingers. Hehe. Parang mas sakto talaga siya sa sukat ng daliri mo.

      Di ko rin naisip irequest noon eh, yung AE ko mismo nagsuggest kasi napansin niya na hirap na kami mamili ng designs. Halos lahat ata ng nakadisplay dun, nasukat na namin! Haha!

      Regarding the contract, nakasulat lang dun yung ring sizes namin. Then ninote lang ni kuya na gawing rounded ang edges tapos gawin semi-comfort fit, with added thickness. :)

  4. Our AE missed out on the comfort fit shiz. Grr! It would have been better to have a rounded edge and a semi-fit ring, no? Maybe I'll call them na lang. HAHA!

    Last! Ano nakalagay sa contract mo na thickness? Small or medium? Hihi! Excited na ako to see our rings kasi it matches my e-ring... almost! :)

    1. Yup! Well for us ha? Haha! Mas naging comfortable kami sa fit kasi ng comfort fit eh pero dahil di namin afford na gawing fully comfort fit yung rings namin, ginawa na lang namin semi-comfort fit. :)

      Sa thickness, walang nakalagay eh.. basta sabi lang added thickness dahil sa semi-comfort fit. hehe.
