Hi bees ! We all have different life styles, jobs, and income and for those on the younger side of the hill I was just wondering what the total cost of your wedding set is or will be?? My boyfriend works a near full time job and a part time job as well so were deff not filthy rich at all lol. And my wedding set is going to cost around $4000 total with warranties and taxes included. Being on here makes me feel like that’s a super low budget but he saved alot! What’s the total cost of your set?! Thanks!

My fiance said he had planned to pay 10k…
But when we went and got a custom set made exactly how I wanted it… The bill came to under 3k!
Sometimes Iam like man… I should have got a more expensive ring… But then I look at it and it’s completely perfect for me and I wouldn’t change a thing, so cost isn’t everything.

Your poll is a bit off. What if one’s set cost $901 or $3500?
Maybe setting each option with equal increments will provide a more accurate result.

I am 28 my set is going to be in the 20,000 range. My Ering without the center diamond was around 4,000.The center diamond is around 13,000 and I just found the wedding band I want and it is 3300. Ering is bought just waiting on my proposal trip and wedding band we will buy sometime next year.
The only reason we can afford to spend this kind of money is bf has a very good job. I was previously engaged at 23 and that ring cost 3200 I believe but we were just out of school and didn’thae a big budget.

I was going to add that you should not feel a certain way about ring shopping especially in comparison to wedding bee there a lot of rings thats are out of reach for most people. Just enjoy the experience and your engagement 🙂

SimpleeAmbur: My engagement ring is an heirloom so $0! And my wedding band (an enhancer with two diamond bands on each side) was $1100. I think my husband got away with a steal :o)

SimpleeAmbur: Around $25,000. FYI the cost of your wedding set isn’t necessarily a reflection of someone’s actual wealth, even though it can be perceived that way. Be happy with your rings. 🙂

Under 2k. But we ended up buying a vintage bridal set and having some custom work done on it. Very happy with the results!

I was 20 when we got engaged and I’m planning on it totaling around 11k.

My set was a little over $7500. 1 1/2 TCW

Mine is around $4600.
My e-ring came with a matching wedding band already, so that was included in the price. And, there was a sale so that helped – otherwise I would have been closer to $6K for everything. It’s 1.75 CT.
We debated just to keep the single wedding band, and get another one fr an anniversary down the road – but then decided just to get one if there was a matching one available. Luckily, the store was able to get one made (normally, it did not), so now I’ll have 2 bands around my e-ring. I don’t know the exact specs of the additional ring, but maybe .5 CT or less.

SimpleeAmbur: I have a simple solitaire and band, nothing fancy, white gold and it was less 1K. I could never imagine my husband dropping 10K on a wedding set, but we also don’t have that kind of money either.
