OneWed Launches Engagement and Wedding Ring Gallery With a Chance to Win Platinum Wedding Bands

Top Wedding Planning Website Celebrates Gallery Launch With Platinum Guild International Contest Challenging Brides to "POP a Platinum Proposal" and Win Platinum Wedding Bands

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - June 18, 2009) - OneWed.com, the wedding website with the largest online wedding vendor directory, introduces a wedding and engagement ring gallery featuring an array of platinum, yellow gold, white gold and diamond wedding bands and engagement rings. The new section provides a detailed description and overview of each ring, setting, and diamond shape from pave to channel-set and princess cut to solitaire. Brides and grooms can each find the ring best suited to their wedding style.

To celebrate the launch of the gallery on OneWed.com, the site has partnered with Platinum Guild International (PGI) to offer future brides the chance to win matching Kirk Kara Platinum wedding bands, valued at approximately $4,500. OneWed brides-to-be simply need to submit how they would (or will) POP a Platinum Proposal. At the end of the contest, July 15, one very lucky bride-to-be will win his and hers Platinum wedding bands, as Platinum is timeless and the most popular choice among today's brides.
