I bought his. I think it was between 150-200, I can’t remember exactly.

I bought my DH’s band.  It cost about $300.  It’s a tungsten band.  Since we were going to be merging finances anyway, I didn’t see anything wrong with buying it.

It may be a bit unromantic, but we bought our own instead of each others!

I’m buying his. I’m not even taking any of the money from my parents for it. I’m using the sale of one of my big paintings to pay for his ring and a budoir session. 🙂

We basically consider all the money “our money” now, even though we have separate accounts.  He pays for a lot of stuff – he bought both our wedding bands – but I pay the house mortgage, the electrica/cable/water bills, and we each pay other stuff.  So, we payed for it together, and we don’t worry about which account it comes out of.  He’s paying for most of the honeymoon though.

I bought it. After seeing what other people have paid, though, I feel embarrassed to say how much I spent ;). But I will anyway–it was about $945 after tax. It was way too much to spend, but he loved it so much and I didn’t think it was fair that I got the ring of my dreams if he couldn’t get his.

But really, it didn’t matter who bought it–a few months later we combined all of our finances. 😉

I bought his. We got it from Amazon for $26.75 after shipping.  It was a steal! It is a tungston comfort fit band.

I am having a custom titanum band made for him it is $350. When we first got engaged I bought him a tungston ring that he wears now when he is on duty. But the other ring is a special surprise. I plan to switch up on him!

He bought both of our wedding bands. But I’ve paid for all of the little wedding stuff (craft supplies, favors, etc.) and the photographers deposit myself. So it balances out. We are at the point where, while we have separate accounts, it’s our money. Not his or mine.

I actually just ordered his ring this weekend. I am having a custom piece made, and he has no idea what it looks like. It is going to cost a little over $2000, but I wanted him to have something special. And mine cost way more than that, so I didn’t really mind.

We bought both of our wedding bands together.  He’s way too picky about stuff like jewelry so I wanted him to pick it.  It cost $250, but that was after 40% off.

we picked it out together and when we went to pay for them, he told me it was silly to write two separate checks to one person.

I was super annoyed that he basically paid for both of mine AND his own, so since I’d already written out the check ($450), I wrote it to his name and made him cash it.

It was just principle of the matter to me….i really wanted to write that check! =]

We bought both of our wedding bands together.  I guess my fiance is a “little prince” though.  His wedding band is 6mm platinum, and was $2500.  We also bought him a second wedding band in titanium for when he goes to the gym.  The titanium band was $150.  I was very entertained at the store.  I was not previously aware of grooms-to-be getting two wedding bands.  Of course, the saleswoman was all for it.  When I expressed skepticism, my fiance walked around the store asking everyone, “Would you want me going to the gym without a wedding band?”  How could I say “no” to that?
