    @renwoman:  I’d… say that’s pretty normal. Most guys I know have something like a Tungsten ring, whereas the woman has a gold or gold/diamond ring.

    each of my wedding bands will be over $2kish, and I’m going to have one on either side plus a plain band and probably an eternity to wear when I don’t want to wear my full set, but his will be a custom platinum ring so his will be probably more expensive than any one of mine (except the eternity band) but alltogether mine are definitely more expensive.

    @renwoman:  its pretty typical for the woman’s w-band to cost more. my DHs w-band was actually thrown in because DH got my e-ring and w-bad from him. So as a courtesy he threw in the w-band for DH and his was just a plain platinum band.

    Haha his is more than mine! I think I paid around 1k for his ring and he paid a little under 700.00 for mine

    @renwoman:  Mr. 99’s was far and away more expensive than mine, the thing is heavy, and thick and solid gold….it was double the cost of my thinner, channel set diamond eternity band.

    They were about the same actually! Mine had small diamonds, and cost around $750. His fingers are so small that the white gold band he chose ended up being around $700.

     

    Don’t mind the college rings, lol, this is the only photo on this comp with both bands.

    @renwoman:  if you are comparing the exact same ring just different sizes, his will usually be more expensive due to more gold (or metal).  women’s rings are more expensive when they include diamonds, or engravings, etc.

    my wband was way more than my dh’s b/c mine has diamonds.
