FI bought my rings in platinum. I considered doing the same for him, but ended up getting a ring in tungsten for $150. I acutally got a discount code from the website http://www.tungstenworld.com — had a great experience with them.

I know he spent more on my rings, but I got him what he wanted and I showed him a bunch of options. It doesn’t bother me that mine cost a lot more. Actually, when I had him try his on he was worried about getting it dirty and when I told him tungsten was pretty indestructible he decided we should test that out by running it over with the car. Um, no!

We haven’t found our rings yet, but mine will be platinum to match the engagement ring we bought for me, and his will be white gold.  So we’ll definitely spend less on him, but right now, we don’t know.  I’m hoping we can get both rings for $600, but I don’t really think that’ll happen…

I suppose this was an epic fail on my part, but we picked out our rings together, and FI insisted on paying for both of them (because he has significantly more income than I do). I said, "No, that’s not how it works — I’m supposed to pay for yours." And he just stared at me for a minute and then said, "Why? That’s stupid." So that was that.

Free 🙂  He is going to wear my grandfathers simple gold band and I will wear my grandmothers band on my right hand (from when they got married in 1945)

His is coming out to be about $400. Not too shabby compared to mine!

I ended up getting him a white gold band for about $200 that he sincerely loves. We’ll upgrade in a few years… 🙂

FI’s ring is 4x the cost of my wedding ring!  It’s not a crazy price, but still.  I figured that this was the only ring he really got "excited" over, and I should go for it.

His is coming out to about $500 with a custom design. Mine came to just under $1500 for two diamond bands. He is much more apathetic about rings than I am. He had two simple instructions: Satin and some shine (like a knife edge) and 8mm thick. I found the EXACT ONE on Ebay for $200 in a 7mm. But he wanted 8, so that’s what he gets!

I don’t know how much it actually costs yet, but I plan to surprise him with a rose gold ring from Cartier Love collection.

However much it costs to get a ring resized — he’s wearing a family ring.  Mine isn’t astronomical compared to his, I’m just getting a plain whtie gold band.

My FI found a $2100 ring from Tiffany & co that he looooooves. GULP. He really wants platinum, so I think we’re going to work with a local jeweler to make something similar, but his ring will still be a big splurge at about $1500-$1800…

His was $975 before tax, and that was on sale. On the higher end, but it is a gorgeous band, with milgrain and brushed white gold detailing. Both of us felt that the rings were one of the most important aspects to splurge on since we’ll be wearing them for the next 70 years. I did not want to influence his decision while he was choosing, but the one he picked is the one I was secretly hoping he would choose!

Beach Bride, definitely work with a jeweler. Tiffany & Co’s prices are insane and really honestly not worth it imo.
