Shopping for the groom’s wedding band tends to be an afterthought when wedding planning. I knew how much thought and effort Michael put into my engagement ring so I wanted Michael to have an equally as exciting experience picking out a ring of his own.

James Allen is an established online retailer specializing in engagement and wedding rings, who recently opened their first brick and mortar store. I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of JamesAllen.com’s first store, located here in DC on M Street in Georgetown, a few months ago. Upon seeing the space, meeting the James Allen team, and hearing their take on wedding ring shopping, I knew this was the place for Michael and I to shop for his wedding band!

James Allen prides itself on modernizing the way you shop for wedding rings. The store is BEAUTIFUL and so fun! The store features open product displays where you can easily reach in and try on pieces without having to request assistance from an associate. And when you do need help from the experts, they are so incredibly friendly and knowledgable. If you’re looking for a diamond, their proprietary Diamond Display Technology allows you to view all of the diamonds and gemstones in magnified 360° HD. And there’s even a coffee bar where you can enjoy a cup of joe while looking over wedding bands.

Michael’s Wedding Band

After browsing the men’s wedding bands on JamesAllen.com, Michael knew he wanted a traditional yellow gold band. JamesAllen.com makes it easy to search wedding bands by dividing them up by style. Since Michael already knew he wanted something traditional, we went straight to the “classic” section online to browse the different options before popping in-store to try on a few different options.

Ring shopping can be intimidating, especially in the instance of finding the groom’s wedding band since most guys have never shopped for jewelry of their own. The consultants on the floor were so helpful when Michael and I went in to look at bands! Along with being helpful, they were very efficient and straight to the point, which I think is important when bringing your guy along to shop. Let’s be honest, if your guy is anything like Michael, there’s not much patience when it comes to shopping.

The main thing we went back and forth on was the width of the band (a thinner vs. thicker band). Our consultant, Gina, helped us make the final decision based on her years of experience of helping other grooms decide on their bands! He ended up going with the 6mm slightly domed comfort fit ring.

Another great offering at James Allen is the JA Guarantee. James Allen provides a lifetime warranty, free resizing (up to 60 days after purchase), engraving, and hassle-free returns (100% money back within 30 days plus free shipping). The JA Guarantee applies to both online and in-store purchases.

We had the best experience finding the perfect wedding band for Michael!
