FAQs



I noticed Marke offers 14k gold options.  How about 18k, or platinum?

Sure thing!  Our basic product assortment is focused on 14k - great price points :) - but we craft bands in 18k and platinum all the time!  Just send a quick inquiry to info@markenyc.com with your request, and we'll get back to you with an estimate as fast as we can.

Why should I go with gold over some of the new, alternative metal bands?

Our advice: stick with gold!  It's a wise investment because, unlike alternative metals like aluminum or carbon fiber, it's value actually increases over time. For quick reference, the price of gold has gone up by 40% over the past 2 years :) 

Aside for the value, you’ll see the difference in color, feel the difference in weight on your finger, and never (ever!) have to worry about tarnishing or durability. 

I want the Home Try-On Kit.  Is there a charge for it?

Not really.  The $99 is a deposit which we hold on to until you ship the Kit back to us.  As soon as we receive it back to our facilities, the deposit is automatically refunded to the original payment method.  You can also apply the $99 toward your wedding band purchase, if you wish!

I need this wedding band in a hurry. Can you rush it?

Yes, we do offer expedited processing and overnight shipping options. Please reach out to us at  info@markenyc.com with your time frame, and we’ll do everything we can to get the ring to you on time.

I’m buying this as a gift for my partner. Can you gift wrap with a special note, or hold off on sending it for a while?

Sure thing. After checking out, shoot us an email at orders@markenyc.com with the details of any special requests. Be sure to include your Order Number and we’ll do our best to accommodate.


Do you offer customizations outside of what’s available on Marke?

I’ve already got a ring, but would like to upgrade to a Marke wedding band. Can I trade in my old one?

Yes, and we’ll issue you a credit for the value of your existing ring. Shoot us a note at info@markenyc.com with a description and image of your existing ring, and we’ll take it from there.


How should I care for my ring?

One of the perks of going for a real gold ring as opposed to some alternative metals: our 14karat gold bands are made to last and don’t need much looking after. The only time we recommend removing it is for serious manual labor (the gold can get scratched).


What if my ring doesn’t fit?

If you aren’t sure of your finger size, we encourage you to order our risk-free Home Try-On kit. There’s a finger sizer enclosed that will help you make sure to order the correct size, and a bunch of our sample bands are engraved with it's finger size inside the ring. In the event your ring (still) doesn't fit, we offer free resizes and exchanges for Marke customers. Further details can be found at our Shipping & Returns Page.


What if I need to return my ring?

In the event you’d like to request a return, please email us at  info@markenyc.com with your Order Number and Reason for Return. Further details can be found at our Shipping & Returns Page.


Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, we do - via Affirm. In your checkout process, selecting the Affirm icon will allow you to proceed with it as your payment method.
