We got simple platinum bands at eweddingbands.com, and they turned out great. Good luck!

We got a simple platinum band with milgrain edge for my husband at http://www.iweddingband.com for about $740. Their prices are the best we’d found and the customer service is excellent.

We did the same, and found rings for wayyy less than we expected! I did white gold, he did Titanium and even with the cost of warranties and engraving, we came out at just above $230 for both rings!!!

He got his band for like $50 on overstock.com..I had to get something more expensive to fit my unique engagement ring, or else I would have done the same thing.

We got ours at the postal exchange on the military base, I know not everyone can buy there but we spent about $700 on both.

I have yet to look for a ring for Fiance. With the economy the way it is, I actually FORBADE him to spend more than $200 on my SET. Well, turns out, we found a very simple set on CL, and we’ll just upgrade later.

I see that you’re checking out platinum, and some people really like Tungsten Carbide now, but a few years ago, I purchased a custom titanium band for someone and it held up great. Titanium is really light and pretty durable. I paid less than $200 for that one, and I designed the Laser Inlay myself, which was really cool and personal. Here’s the company link if anyone’s interested. The guy (when I ordered three years ago) was very good at communicating and got the job done very fast.

I also ordered my Fi’s ring from an online jeweler to save money.  I think the ring you picked out is very nice and has a simple, classic style.  If you are looking for cheaper alternatives, some people choose palladium over platinum because they look almost identical.  Otherwise, I say go for the one you picked out.  It’s a great choice!

We bought tungsten carbide rings at TungstenWorld.com   They are quite beautiful and FH loves them because they don’t scratch.   What is nice about this place is they offer lifetime sizing so if your ring size changes, they will replace the ring.

Certain types of metal can not be easily cut off.  Since my fiance plays basketball regularly, there is always a chance of a injured finger that would require his ring to be cut off.  We decided to be safe and went with white gold!

If you’re looking to save money, you should go with white gold, not platinum. Plantinum is the most expensive. You can get a band like that in white gold for less than $100.

As for the style, I like it. I don’t think it’s too plain at all for a mens band. It is clean, cool, and classic. 🙂
