Sizing - can I pick a quarter size?
Absolutely! We actually send you a complimentary sizer after you order - just to make double sure that we're selecting the right size for you with our jeweler. Sizes shift depending on comfort fit and width, so let our sizing experts lead the way after you get your sizer and determine your standard size. And yes - we can do quarter sizes in Founder's Line and Custom rings.

Yes indeed! We offer complimentary engraving on this ring, up to 35 characters (including spaces). It also comes with the Manly Bands logo and a small notation with the kind of metal used - ex. "14K Gold" "Cobalt"

Yes - we offer a great "3 easy payments" deal with Affirm. It's 3 payments over 3 months with 0% interest!

**Don't worry we're going to send you a sizer and instructions - nothing a man can't handle (but for serious, read the instructions this time). ALWAYS try on your ring BEFORE the wedding. We promise it's not bad luck. You want a little resistance in taking it off. See our video here for more on that (scroll down a smidge).

On most Founder's Line rings, we will accept a return within 30 days of delivery date for a 25% restocking fee. The exception to this rule is if you choose any customizations or engraving options. We will not be able to accept a return on customized rings, as we cannot resell your ring.

Founder's Line rings are covered, at no extra charge, under your FREE Lifetime "no hassle" warranty. If you have any issues after that time, reach out and we will see how we can help and let you know if there are any fees associated with your repairs. 

The order process for your Founder's Line ring:

1. You've decided on the Founder's Line ring of your dreams! You place your order on the website. 

2. Your complimentary Manly Ring Sizer ships out to you first. Please follow the instructions with it to determine your proper size. We've even got a fun little "how to" video here.

3. You'll get another email from us asking for your size. Hold onto that until you get your Manly Ring Sizer and have a chance to follow the instructions. To properly size yourself, it may take a couple days - we get it. Once we have your size, your order is officially placed and we start making your handcrafted ring. No one likes to get married with the wrong sized wedding ring - so save yourself the stress and fees, and give us the right standard size please :)

4. About 3 weeks later, you will get an email that your ring has shipped!

5. At about the 4-5 week mark, your ring arrives and you realize it is possible to love two things - also you live happily ever after!
