We went shopping for FI’s ring this weekend and he likes Tungsten. At the stores we visited the rings he liked were in the $200-300 range. I found similar ones online and they were $30, $20, even $15!! The sites were reputable (Amazon, Overstock) but I can’t believe they are that cheap.
I also feel a little bad! I am sure my rings are A LOT more. I plan to purchase two in different colors. He mentioned wanted his ring to match different watches, etc. Maybe I can get him a really great watch as a wedding gift?? I mean, I think he’s getting raw deal! LOL

Yes, it really is that cheap! lol My husband’s band was 56 dollars all tungsten. He wears it to work AND works out in it. Not one scratch on it! His cousin actually took his tungsten band and scratched it all over a brick & it didn’t do a thing to it!
My husband’s came from overstock & even has tungsten engraved on the inside.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: The price is just crazy but I’m not complaining

DH’s ring is tungsten and I think it was like $40. The same rings were being sold in the jewelry stores for more than $300. It’s a good thing they’re so cheap since the rings can’t be resized and DH’s is basically falling off of his finger. It’s easy enough to buy a different size when the whole thing is under $50.
We’ve been pleasantly surprised by how many compliments he’s gotten on his ring. Most have been from other men that he works with. You wouldn’t think that guys would even pay attention to other guy’s weddings bands but apparently they do.

The difference in price from jewelry stores and places online like Amazon is that the stores usually provide forever resplacement if the size changes. If you order from Amazon, you just have to order another if the size changes, it shatters, etc.

@NJmeetsBX: We got my FI’s on Amazon. It was $50 with shipping and he loves it! Like you mentioned doing, I got him an expesnsive watch as a wedding gift. With the cost of both of my rings being so much I figured I’d splurge for him! Hope he like it as much as his wedding band!
