I’m just beginning my search for FI’s wedding band and I’m just curious to see what other Bees have spent. My FI is a simple man so he doesn’t want anything too fancy (whew, lucky for me!). 🙂
Post pictures if you have them, too! And prices if you’re comfortable.

We ended up being lucky with DH’s band. He picked a seranite ring from Benchmark that was originally around $300 (I think), but we ended up paying about $150 when we combined it with my band purchase. It has a lifetime warranty on it too. The tungsten and titanium versions were only a little bit more, but he liked the color of the seranite better.

My husband wanted a tungsten band….it’s a 10mm and I paid a whopping $50 for it up in LA…laser engraving was $45. We went to downtown LA and found the one he wanted, one guy told me $300, another guy told me $175 the we found this girl in the very back of one of the buildings who sold only tungsten…$50. SOLD!

He wanted the thickest one possible and wanted the simple white gold band. I think it was 14k gold. It ended up right around $500.

My husband’s band is palladium, and a custom fingerprint band from Fabuluster on ETSY. I’m not sure how much his alone cost (I got an 18k gold band from them, and it was one price for both). It was $1700 for both, so probably around $800-ish?

Here is a breakdown on the type of rings he could have with price
Tungsten – the most durable, UNABLE TO RESIZE due to durable of a metal it is. This will be your cheapest ring
Titanium – more of a classy metal, not as durable, but you are able to resize it up and down one size for weight fluctuation through your life – these can be anywhere from 100 – 500
Platinum – the most expensive, very high quality ring -these will get you in the 1000s.
What you spend is up to you. My engagement ring was 1000, I will probably spend a few hundred and get a titanum ring for my fiance; however, we have a very low budget and not that high of income as we are in school. It will really depend on what fits him the best 🙂

DH wasn’t really interested in a ring and didn’t plan on wearing it, so we didn’t want to spend a lot. We got this ring from Etsy seller Titanium Knights. DH wore his ring for the two weeks of our honeymoon, but it drove him crazy the entire time, so he hasn’t worn it since then. He says he doesn’t mind wearing it when we go out to nice meals/events though 🙂

I got his off of Amazon and paid a whole $10 for it! It’s a simple, stainless steal band which is what he had been looking into getting.

We spent about $700 on his yellow gold band. I think it’s around 4 or 5mm wide.

We got a tungsten band that was about $70 and had a Celtic design polished into it. I was willing to spend more, but he liked it. And the perk of that is that he doesn’t wear jewelry ever and will probably lose his ring 3-5 times over the course of our marriage…and I won’t be nearly as pissed about replacing an inexpensive band.

We paid just under $400.00 for his ring.

We spent about $280 on my husbands white gold ring

Here’s his, with mine. It’s platinum, retail price around $1300, I paid about half that.

We started out super simple – I thought he wanted simple. Simple turned into a platinum band with scroll work in the middle (that matches my rings). To the tune of $$$$. I didn’t even get platinum 😉 Mine are white gold
