New Showbride Sponsor: ZB Jewelers

At all upcoming showbride bridal shows, each couple will receive these wonderful gift cards at registration! These are polished, classic style and contemporary brushed style tungsten and titanium wedding bands. While supplies last, each engaged attendee (one per couple) will receive two FREE wedding bands from ZB Jewelers! You only pay for shipping and handling for each ring. Once you select the rings you like at, use the coupon code on the back of the gift card that you receive upon arriving at registration. This will waive the price of each ring. For each partner, you choose from their finest selection of tungsten and titanium wedding bands that will exceed your expectations. All of the tungsten and titanium wedding bands ship in a black suede pouch and placed in a black outer packer. #ZBJewelers #weddingbands #showbride
