    We got my engagement ring in Ireland, after the proposal there. We got our wedding bands from a family friend who is a jeweler, and they gave us a good deal. I got a simple rose gold band with engraving on the inside for about $350. My engagement ring was silver with amethyst center stone and diamond accents. I have never worn both together.

    Do you want any precious stones on your band? I agree, anything over $5,000 sounds like way too much!

    @TroubadourTango:  My band is a little over $5k. It’s a custom piece and is exactly what I wanted. I know it sounds like a lot, but I’m going to be wearing it every day, and I love it. Since its not a “brand name” it actually cost much less than say, a Tacori or JB Star design. We think we got a pretty good deal for a 3 ctw band.

    Platinum is just expensive.  My ering is platinum and my wedding band is 14kt white gold.  I don’t wear them on the same hand, so I don’t notice the difference in color.  Mine has four diamonds, 1 ct tcw, and we paid $1,000 for it.

    The one I want to get is about $1100. Plain 18k yellow gold band. FI’s will be just over $600 from a different store. Also plain 18k yellow gold band.

    ETA: I will be getting my wedding ring from the same place I got my engagement ring, they go so perfectly together! FI’s will be from a diferent store though.

    Wow! That’s a lot! I originally wanted one from Christian Bauer but they didn’t have any sparkle (the ones I liked) and were over 2k so I ended up getting mine online for a little over 1k

    @TroubadourTango:  I got mine from the Zales Outlet for something around $400. I don’t remember the exact price. It’s a 1/4 ct. 3/4 infinity pave milgrain in 14K white gold. It sparkles beautifully.

    i don’t know exactly how much my band was but it’s on the higher end of the poll.  it’s a 4ctw full eternity band and i love it.  i also have a plain band that was less than $500.

    My jeweler custom designed my wedding band. I wanted a wrap that my e-ring could fit perfectly in the middle of. I found a similar one I liked at Ultra Diamonds. Took a pic of it to my jeweler and he matched my ring and it was almost $1k cheaper than the 1 at Ultra diamonds and even $300 cheaper than he originally quoted. That never happens. Mine was $1500. DHs was $1300.

    I think mine was around $200, if I remember correctly. It is simple, and made of recycled palladium.

    Mine was $1200, made by our jewler to match the band of my ering. At the time I had planned on getting 2 rings (one for each side), but when we emailed him to let him know we were ready to get my band(s) made and get the prices, I quickly decided to wait on the other band. We had mine made about a month out from the wedding, and at crunch time I decided the extra $1200 for a second band was not a smart purchase. Now i’m anxiously waiting to add a 2nd band on. 🙂

    1200, and it’s a name brand and has diamonds on all three sides. 5k+ as the only option is REALLY steep!

    Mine was $1100, which got reduced by $300 during a sales event. (Bottom; top is e-ring)

    It isn’t designer though.
