Picking out Wedding Bands with A.Jaffe x C.D. Peacock!

Last month I had the opportunity to co-host with an event with A.Jaffe at C.D. Peacock, the oldest jewelry retailer in the Chicagoland area- since 1837!!  There was a flower crown artist on hand from Steve’s Flower Market, a manicurist from Canvas Nail Studio and even a Calligrapher who was creating the most adorable place cards and coasters.  The night started by looking at all of the gorgeous A.Jaffe wedding bands and swooning over all of the amazing diamonds.  I’ve always known I wanted two bands to make my ring look symmetrical, so I looked at a bunch of classic but beautiful styles and finally narrowed it down to two that I really fell in love with!

The entire staff at C.D. Peacock was so wonderful and helpful in aiding my decisions and making sure I was comfortable.  They really were honest in what they thought looked best with my engagement ring and the different styles that would suit it.  My engagement ring is absolutely amazing (the fiance did well!) so I also didn’t want anything that took away from that too much, as some bands can drown the overall look of your engagement ring.  One of the rings I did choose, was completely different then I thought I would have originally picked, so it was super fun going out of my comfort zone and trying on tons of different styles.  Another thing I loved about C.D. Peacock is that you can bring in your rings at any time to be cleaned and it only takes a few minutes!  They cleaned mine while I was there and it came out looking brand spanking new.  They also cleaned my mom’s rings and offered to bring them back at any time to be cleaned again.  My fiance decided to go with a family ring which is super sentimental to him, so we didn’t look at men’s bands but I did see a plethora of them in the store!  A.Jaffe carries some amazing and affordable men’s rings in platinum, yellow, rose or white gold.

For all of you brides to be who have yet to buy your rings, or maybe you want to find a fun diamond piece or even a Rolex watch– C.D. Peacock has 3 locations in the Chicagoland area.  I decided to go with A.Jaffe as my wedding band brand because all of their gold is 100% nickel free and their 18k gold is alloyed with 40% more palladium then most retailers– they’re also hypoallergenic, so they won’t cause any irritation to the skin!

*Thank you A.Jaffe for sponsoring this post, as always all opinions are my own!

  1. I didn't realize gold could be alloyed with cheap metals at the 18k range, good to know! (:

  5. We are in the market for new wedding bands. This is our 25th anniversary year and I want something classic and simple.
