With the latest on style, inspiration, helpful tips and tricks, and everything else you need to know to plan the perfect Philly wedding.
Engagement ring? Check. Suggestion? Check. Tears of joy? Review and review. Yes, you and your future marriage are feeling the love, and thinking about the next steps is paramount. Among those on your list should be to find your partner’s wedding ring. Thanks to Hitched, who opened an affiliated showroom with The Groomsman Suit at 67 N. Second Street in Old, the process is now a little easier (in Philly so) town last fall.
Previously only available online, which advertises as Warby Parker for men’s wedding rings (it also offers a small selection for women), it launched its three-tier home delivery service in 2018. You choose five styles online, try them on at home and decide on a look (you have five days) and send them back. (The $ 20 try-on fee goes into your ring when you make a purchase.) However, those who want to poke the balls in person can get the same efficiency in the new store. The typical jewelry store formality is swapped for a cozy space with whitewashed brick walls and shelves lined with tons of rings for you to poke around. Add to the mood in the living room? College football on TV, beer in the fridge and a warm greeting from Sammy, the dog of founders Stephanie and Chris Sammons.
It’s an ambience that the duo, who have been in Philadelphia for the past five years (they grew up in Bucks County), in their own struggle to find Chris a ring, would surely have appreciated: their jeweler forgot to place the order , and they turned to Amazon to get him a band on time. Their goal at Hitched is to remove that pressure and keep an eye on the burgeoning business – their offices and e-commerce order fulfillment center are in the showroom, and the couple do most of the work in-house.
Clients like Bobby Hill (the writer’s cousin) recently visited fiancée Casey and had a positive experience. “My wedding isn’t until fall 2020, so I really didn’t think I’d go out there if I knew which ring I would be wearing 11 months from now,” he says.
Stephanie began her appointment by describing all metals and getting a feel for Hills’ style and what he would like to spend. Wedding rings from popular Philly jewelers often reach prices in excess of $ 2,000. Here, however, the rings range from $ 99 to $ 999. There are, among other things, more than 100 ribbons made of 14 carat gold, cobalt, ceramic, tungsten and meteorites. The most expensive bands are the classic 6mm platinum, flat, knife and milgrain rings made of platinum. Then she measured his finger and brought cases of rings his size to discuss with his fiancée.
Hill went with a purchase and then went to the Wells Fargo Center for an afternoon game of Flyers. “It was so easy and we liked the way it looked,” he says. “That’s all that matters, isn’t it?”
