All of our rings were fairly cheap.

My e-ring & band came in a set, cost about $419 total.

E-ring is almost 1/2 C combined [9 diamond cluster with 5 diamonds on each side], wedding band is a little less than 1/2 C [13 diamonds], set in 14k white gold. They are I.

And then I bought this ring to use as a wedding band when I wanted something pink, it’s a 7/8 C created pink & white sapphire set in sterling silver, cost was $39.

And FI has picked out this ring : 8 mm tungston with CZ stones. $39

For a total cost of $497.00.

My engagemnt ring was 2000. My wedding band was about 150. My wedding band is older, but it was so beautiful. I couldn’t stop talking about it until my fiance bought it. His wedding band is about 400-500. He just wants a plain yellow gold band. I apologize for the size of the pictures

Here’s are my rings:

I think it should be easy, just tone back on the “fancyness” of the rings.

Our wedding bands I think cost us $150 total, on a 50% off sale. they were both simple white gold. Mine has a bit of a dotted edge to it but thats it.

I love your stacker choice #1, not a fan of the 2nd one. I think the saphire that should stand out is in your e-ring 🙂

DH’s ring was just under $600.  Boy was it hard to find one he liked:

 

I have 2 wedding rings.  The gold one is my grandmother’s.  We got it hand engraved and sized for about $250.  Then there is a platinum estate ring we picked up at a local jeweler for $700.  This was when I couldnt decided between white or yellow metal so I opted for both. I do not know the total cost of my e ring but I know its around 8k ish.  So about $1500 for all three wedding rings.

 

I feel like if your going to splurge a bit on your wedding day, it should be your rings.  They are forever.

I think your FI should get to choose his ideal ring first and then you can base your choices on that decision – I think it’s only fair that since you got a nice fancy ring, he get a nice fancy ring too (if that’s what he wants). This is what I did with my FI. My ering was about $450 and his wedding ring cost $500. The wedding ring I am looking at getting costs $280.

ETA: I agree with PP, your wedding rings should be something you love because they are what will last and represent your relationship. Also, my FI was picky too.

We never really talked about how much we wanted to spend on each other’s wedding bands, but we knew we didn’t want to go overboard.  My e-ring and wedding band totals at around $7600 (the wedding band does not match my e-ring but costed him less than the ring that does go with it).  His wedding band costed me around $800.  The ring he ended up choosing was more expensive than others he liked but he’s a bling-lover like me so he went with the one that had 5 diamonds in a row centered on the top.

I think you can do it if you go with stackable rings that are a tad cheaper (given he likes one of the ones you like for him) or forego one of the stackable rings (I agree with another poster above who thinks the only sapphire that should stand out is the one in your e-ring).

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  I have a sapphire ering too. Personally, I like diamond or plain gold bands better with sapphires than bands that have sapphires in them. I find it becomes a little too much? I think a diamond band allows the band and your ering to both be displayed to their greatest potential. 🙂

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  I still like the diamond band better than the one with the mix Although in that picture if the mix was not curved it probably would look better, atm it doesn’t seem to sit quite right…

ALTHOUGH If you did two of the diamond/saphire curved rings and placed them on either side of your e-ring and they curved away leaving that slight gap on both sides, it might make your e-ring really pop. Did they have any ohter of those rings? maybe with a different stone just so you could see what that might look like?

Ering: $1500 (purchased on Diamond Bistro, LOVE deals)

Wedding Band: $500 (purchased from Lord of Gem Rings on Ebay. Highly recommended!)

 

ETA: I LOVE the look of all three rings together actually…but if I had to choose just 1 I’d go with the diamond band. It really showcases your engagement ring:)
