Planning a Bachelor Party to Iceland, has anyone gone there?

Hey guys, I''m trying to plan a bachelor party for Iceland since it''s a place Ive'' always wanted to go.  I hear that the views are spectacular, the people are very friendly and there are a lot of activities to do.  I''m not one for the traditional Strip Club overdone bachelor party. ...

I was a little shocked by the price myself, but I figured a mall store would charge a markup.   I talked to Gary at ERD and they don''t have a Jeff Cooper connection, I am talking to him about possibly doing a custom design.  You girls can''t have all the fun!!

Call Bill at Pearlmans!!!!!
I looked at Pearlman''s website and they didn''t list Jeff Cooper as one of their designers.  I will check with him and see if he has a line on some rings that are similar or can get a Jeff Cooper at a reasonable price.

Jeff Cooper wedding band, love the look, help me find the right retailer.

Hey guys and gals, As you can imagine I put all my efforts into getting the right engagment ring for my fiance, which she loved by the way, but I forgot to keep my eye out for my own wedding band.  Now it's my turn to be picky!! http://www.pricescope.com/idealbb/editor/cute/images/face20.gif I'...

I suspect that they run their store much like Tiffany.  An appointment with a so-called diamond specialist is encouraged and they do not favor the simple walk in and looking business.  Think about it from their perspective.  They probably get people all day who have no intention of bu...

Looking for a wedding band (music) for the Philly area, any recommendations?

Well I''m getting married in the Philly area on June 20th of next year.  Now I''m fine with a DJ, but my future father-in-law is dead set on a band.  I want the band to be a top 40 who can cover a lot songs, both rock and dance, not just another R&B band.  The crowd will consist o...


Thanks for all the responses guys.  I will be checking out Quest and Dominion.  Both look promising and I will most likely go with whomever can do it in house for a day appointement.  Don't want to take a chance that something will get lost.  ERD told me that at most I should pay...

Finding the right local jeweler to resize a ring, in the DC Metro area.

Well as luck would have it I measured my fiances hand in the mall when we were walking around on a hot afternoon and she happened to be a size 7 that day.  Now that I''ve proposed she is most definitely not a size 7, but a 6.5 or so.  The ring is somewhat loose and I''d like to get it re-s...

Here is mine.  It's a Mark T from ERD custom piece.  I helped design it and it's a one off piece from him.  The center stone is a 1.55 cushion brilliant. In terms of trying to find the right design to suit your needs you need to come up with what's important to you.  Do you want ...

Thanks Mrs. S, It was a long process, but it turned out perfectly.  Likewise, the day on the beach when I proposed couldn''t have been better.  My new fiance has been having all kinds of fun with all the excitement.  She was the center of attention yesterday when she got back to work ...

Here''s the exact spot where it happened on a beautiful sunny day. 

I suspect that this is what was running through her head as I sat there contemplating things, "Hehe, little does he know what I have in store for him!!"Image

That sounds a little strange to me that Chubb would be charging you that much.  What size center stone do you have in your current ring?  I have a Chubb policy on my future fiance''s ring and it''s outstanding.  As long as it''s not within the first three years of you owning the ring ...

A buddy of mine gave me another cool idea.  Basically he said it would be very cool if I found a fake clam, put the ring in it, and drop it on the beach when we are out there.  Then say something like, "I found a clam maybe there is a pearl inside!"  Being down on one knee as I go dow...


I went with Chubb to insure my ring.  I have a stand alone policy with them and they are only covering the e-ring.  I haven''t had to file a claim as of yet thank goodness, but they are suppose to be the best in the business in terms of simply mailing you a check for the appraisal value if...
