    @renwoman:  I have 3 different ‘categories’ of RHR: cheaper costume pieces with CZ/glass stones, costing around $30-40; rings in silver with semi-precious stones costing around $50-100; then rings in gold/white gold with semi-precious or precious stones costing anything from $150-$400; the average price is probably around the $150 mark.

    Personally I wouldn’t spend much more than around $200 on a RHR right now as I have quite a few which I switch up; if I was planning on wearing one daily, it might be different. In future when I have more money I would probably consider spending more (I’d like a diamond oval or pear halo RHR at some point); but right now there are so many gorgeous styles for such tiny prices that I personally don’t think it’s worth splurging.

    Other. I have multiple RHRs which I switch out, depending on my mood and outfit. These are my favorites:

    Victorian oval emerald in 10k rose gold, $100

    Cabochon emerald filigree in 10k yellow gold, $100

    Marquise garnet and trillion citrine three-stone in 10k yellow gold, free (It was originally a gift from my dad to my mom, but my mom let me have it when I was in third grade. To this very day, she trusts me with her jewelry, minus her beloved diamonds.)

    Oval star sapphire in 14k yellow gold, $365 (This one’s probably my favorite – it cost more than the others because it was a custom piece.)

    I have some silver RHR that cost well under 100. I have been starting to collect pretties for my hand though.

    Rose gold with cognac diamond eyes $620

    I should have this one next month. An art decco natural untreated White star sapphire in white gold. $550.

    I also have a 3 stone amethyst and aquamarine in white gold that cost me about $100 its value is closer to $700, and a star cut amethyst in white gold that is about $150.

    My husband knows I have 3 star rubies, and 2 star sapphires I’d like to have set eventually. I also have a beatiful spinel I’d like to have done too. Plus someday I’d really like a nice gray diamond :).

    I’ll see if I can post a picture later, but I have a 1920s vintage platinum RHR. It’s hand-carved and has a center OMC diamond about .40, with 8 side stones flanking it that are each about 2 points. It was a 10 year dating anniversary gift and cost about $1000. I love it and wear it every day!

    My RHR is a class ring from college. I can’t remember how much it was, but I want to say between $300-$400. I intend to wear it for the rest of my life, so the cost isn’t that bad overall.

    @dewingedpixie:  That white star sapphire one is gorgeous! I love star sapphires/rubies. I want to have one one day, but I’m not much of a jewelry wearer and I already have a lifelong ring on each hand. Sigh!

    @renwoman:  DH gave me two RHRs for Christmas!  The top pearl is Berricle (plus DH got me the matching pearl necklace) and it was around $30.  The middle halo was probably around $20.  The bottom one I got a few months ago from JCP for $12, and it’s my gym stand-in ring.

    If your mom is willing to buy you the RHR you want, I say go for it!  It’s a gift and you only get married once!

    I wear different right hand rings all of the time. Some are $20, some are several hundred. But I tend to go for the funky jewerly for RHR instead of traditional style rings. I like the funky kind you get from artisans at craft fairs.


    Here’s one I have that I love. It’s so weird and different. Sterling silver with jasper and pearl.

    Mine is an heirloom from my grandmother, so it didn’t cost anything. It’s a diamond that looks to be about a 1/4-1/2 carat. The jeweler said it’s practically flawless and the color is great.

    Mine is a combination of the setting/side diamonds from my grandmother’s engagement ring (we used her center diamond for my engagement ring) and a cushion cut green amethyst my fiance bought and had placed into her setting for me.

    My RHR I just received as a Christmas gift from DH. It’s an Alexandrite (my birthstone) in a custom pave diamond and 14K white gold halo setting. The setting is inspired from Tacori’s 2620 ring.

    @renwoman:  I used to wear a promise ring on my right hand until I had an allergic reaction 🙁 I bought a sterling silver ring with a London blue topaz in it from an Etsy seller. It was pretty (and around $60?), but the stone chipped 🙁 For Christmas this year, my FI gave me a green moissanite RHR. Since it’s palladium, I won’t have an allergic reaction.

    I just got this one yesterday, it’s called “Bing Bang Tiny Marquis Ring”, in rose gold.  The stone is a crystal.  I would like to get more of these and make a stack.  (this pic is not my hand fyi).  The company has other styles, like a tiny skull, that baguette shown, plain bands etc…
