Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) July 30, 2012
the Broken Promises Coalition responded to a recent infographic from women’s fashion retailer, Kaleidoscope, detailing the top ten embarrassing wedding stories that real brides submitted, leading the Coalition to speak about one wedding snafu that no couple should experience – a broken wedding ring.
According to the infographic from Kaleidoscope, based on real answers from a survey conducted by the fashion retailer, some of the most embarrassing wedding stories range the gamut from elderly mothers in inappropriately exposing outfits and the groom’s pants falling down at the altar to dramatics due to seating arrangements and that one wedding guest that manages to make everyone else uncomfortable. The Coalition finds this entertaining infographic to be humorous and a lesson in preparedness for any bride and groom about to marry. The Coalition believes that there’s one wedding disaster left off Kaleidoscope’s list that no couple should ever face.
“We’ve heard stories of wedding rings breaking on the day of the wedding due to being dropped at the altar or during the ceremony. While we know that couples need to be prepared and flexible in case of any possible mishap on the day of their wedding, the fact that the bridal jewelry industry isn’t doing their part to prevent this issue is unacceptable. It’s why we urge retailers and manufacturers to be upfront about their products and do our best to inform the public about the often untold truths regarding tungsten carbide wedding rings,” says Clay Darrohn, Broken Promises representative.
Tungsten carbide is a brittle compound that, when fatigued from daily use, can break or shatter – a fact that most brides and grooms are unaware of. Broken Promises believes that the public has a right to know this information before they even consider purchasing a tungsten ring. This is done with the hope that the newlyweds can carry with them for their entire lives the same rings that they have had blessed and used to exchange vows.
The Broken Promises Coalition is currently sponsoring a petition demanding that retailers be upfront regarding the truth about tungsten carbide. For all consumers who believe that love, vows, promises, and the rings that represent them should last a lifetime, this petition is available through the Broken Promises Facebook page.
Broken Promises is a grassroots consumer advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness about misleading information regarding tungsten carbide wedding rings. Started in April of 2012, Broken Promises is a group of concerned consumers dedicated to sharing information about the brittle nature of tungsten rings to brides and grooms to-be.
