Filling a Need
We began when a newly engaged Orthodox Christian man, from Seattle, Washington, went looking for his wedding band. What he wanted was a quality ring that would remind him of his commitment to his wife and embody the Faith that was bringing them together. He also wanted his ring to resemble the classic gold band style, that he had grown up recognizing as a symbol of marriage, a ring that could be worn on any occasion. To his surprise, there was nothing remotely close to this available anywhere! For the sake of Orthodox Christians everywhere, especially those soon to marry, this had to change... It did.
Matt Swagerty and his wife Amy founded OrthodoxRings.com in order to produce the very ring that he could not find for himself and to make it available to Orthodox Christians, and all Christians with a historic bent, throughout the entire world. OrthodoxRings.com is owned and operated by Orthodox Christians. Our ring designs originate from experience in Orthodox worship, Orthodox weddings, and input from Orthodox clergy from several jurisdictions. They come to life within a graphics design team headed by an Orthodox Christian, with 15 years of experience. OrthodoxRings.com is partnered with a nationally acclaimed, fine jewelry manufacturer, that specializes in gold, and platinum bands, as well as diamond settings, and has 22 years of experience in the industry.

Why a Ring from OrthodoxRings.com?
You have an Orthodox wedding in your plans, you are an Orthodox Christian and want to wear the Faith, or you are a Christian that appreciates the ancient tradition. There are many reasons why our rings get people's attention. Yet, too often, a focus on our authentic Orthodox Christian designs leads people to forget some of the other important characteristics. To name a few, our wedding bands and rings weigh more than almost all other websites, they all come in comfort fit, and they are all individually made.
Our rings and wedding bands have a substantial weight to them and on average, depending on your ring size, will weigh approx. 10.8 - 13.5 grams each for our 14k gold rings with designs (weights based on a size 10, 6 mm ring). 18k gold will weigh slightly more at approx. 12.9 - 15.8 grams and our platinum rings are the heaviest and most substantial, and generally weigh approx. 18.4 - 23.5 grams (weights may vary based on ring style and size). We encourage you to compare the weight of our rings with the weight of rings on other sites to see the kind of value you are getting at OrthodoxRings.com. As soon as you put one of our rings on your finger, whether it be at an Orthodox wedding or in your own home, you will be able to feel that you have purchased a ring of unsurpassed quality.
At OrthodoxRings.com every single one of our rings and Orthodox Christian wedding bands is a comfort fit ring. Why will this matter to you? We were hoping you would ask. Comfort fit bands are fashioned with a rounded interior so they slide on easier and rest on your finger more comfortably, as so accurately described by the name itself. There are varying degrees of comfort fit. A "Light comfort fit" ring may only be very slightly rounded on the inside, whereas a "heavy comfort fit" ring will be a very thick (from inside to outside at the midpoint) band, and then the regular comfort fit ring would be approximately in-between. Our bands, at at OrthodoxRings.com, would be considered regular on the comfort fit scale. This offers you all of the wonderful fit and feel of a comfort fit ring, without the undesired added bulk.
Comfort fit bands are also a more practical choice for
people who have to remove their rings on a regular
basis, as it makes for easier on and off, and for people
who are not used to wearing rings. This makes comfort
fit bands especially popular among men, and newlyweds.
Because comfort fit rings are thicker from inside to out,
they have more metal content than standard rings and
may be heavier, and therefor more expensive. Regular
"half-round" rings don't have the same luxurious feel of
when it comes to jewelry that you will be wearing for the
rest of your life, this is definitely not the area that you want to go cheap on now and regret later. Remember, if this is a wedding band we are talking about, then this may be the only item that you ever buy just once in your life!
All of our rings and wedding bands are individually made to assure quality and integrity of design. We do not let our rings sit in stock or have them displayed in a jewelry store, where they can get scuffed and worn by other people. Instead, each ring is crafted directly from our manufacturer, here in the USA. The creation of your ring is not even begun until after you place your order.
So, while our designs may be the first thing to catch your eye, they shouldn't be the only thing that you consider when looking at a ring or wedding band from OrthodoxRings.com. Remember that our rings are made with more metal than most site's rings, a comfort fit design, and are crafted, individually, after you order them. Give us a call, or shoot us an email, if you have any questions. All of our contact information can be found at OrthodoxRings.com. Matt Swagerty is the co-founder of OrthodoxRings.com, a web-based Orthodox Christian business dedicated to providing precious metal Orthodox Christian rings and wedding bands to people of the ancient Christian Faith worldwide.
