    Erm, it won't say Cartier on it at time of "delivery", will it?

    Looks nice, what is it? white gold or platinum?

    Anyway, by having the words Cartier carved on it probably raised the price by two folds over similar band.

    I think if cost is not an issue, I'd also go with a cartier band. The presentation in the signature red box alone is quite stunning. However, this is all fluff when the real substanc is the actual band itself.

    If you go to any reputable online dealers, you can get a similar band, minus the cartier name, for half the price.

    I was thinking the same thing. It's a wedding band ... please don't make it an advertisement for Cartier. That would be an insult to your spouse. It would also be downright tacky.

    It's the wedding band equivalent of a LV monogram bag. Y'know - 'LOOK AT ME I'M ROCKING LV!!!'

    That's a nice ring, but it's very plain and ordinary. Why would I get Cartier, if I can get something that's the same for less than half the price?

    Apologies if I'm barking up the wrong tree, but are you suggesting that it's only worth spending the $$$ something from Cartier if the world can see that it's clearly from Cartier? If so, I'm sorry, but that's nouveau riche thinking at its 'finest'.

    You get something 'plain and ordinary' from a company like Cartier because you can, because you can damn well be assured that it will be superlative, because you appreciate the company's heritage/history, and finally, because you can.

    And if things dont go well with your spouse the resale value of the ring will be high [​IMG]
