So, I think I may have found the deal of the century and we are considering ordering FI’s ring from this site https://www.tanga.com/deals/rings?utm_source=GAN&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=Skimlinks&utm_content=Ban
Yes, FI’s ring might just cost us $5.99.
FI is thrilled! They’re very similar to the rings he’d been considering when they were in the $100 range, so he thinks it’s a great deal and is amazed at my web sleuthing to find rings for less than 10 bucks.
Me? I’m not so thrilled. I just feel like the cost of the ring isn’t representative of what that ring means to me. Almost like the commitment level or ‘special-ness’ is lessened because it could have come out of a gumball machine. Furthermore, I don’t think it’s fair that I’m going to be walking around with $2,500 on my finger while he walks around with $10. I’ve already told him that it’s REALLY important to me that he wears his ring and he’s agreed to wear it most of the time, so it’s not like this is just to be used for the ceremony or anything.
Am I overthinking this? Should I just be thrilled that I found a great deal?

You’re over thinking it! Enjoy finding a good deal! The amount of money you spend doesn’t equate to the amount of love you have!

I don’t think the price tag on a ring means your marriage is any less valid than another. Just like a 20k engagement ring doesn’t mean that a man loves a woman more than one that gets a $100 engagement ring.
Personally I like fun bands. I’ve picked up others along the way that I wear to the beach or other places where I might lose or damage it. Just because I spent $5 on one of those spare rings doesn’t make me any less married.

I can understand you feeling that way (I would struggle with it as well) but in the end what matters is how happy he is. If that ring makes him happy, then why not? 🙂

Who cares how much it costs if he loves it!
Have you checked the final cost? Sometimes they lure you in with low prices then slap on high shipping and processing fees.

If he is okay with it, I would probably be okay with it. I get where you are coming from though and would probably have the same reservations.

oo i like the titanium ones only 8 bucks! but i agree im still probably gonna go for something more substantial because it matters to me lol the only problem is Fiance always underestimates the cost of my gifts to him and then feels like an ass after, hes a spender but on toys like guns and remote control cars, etc but nothing that has quality. i got him a designer belt for his bday and he was like ‘what just a belt?” and i said if he didnt like it theres a reciept in the box and then he was like O_O ‘….$x for a belt???” lol

I would get it and if you don’t like the quality in person it can be a back up for the beach, hiking any place that chances of losing it would be high. If you like it then you just got a great ring for a great price!

Thanks for the great link!
I think we might order from here!

I wouldn’t care at all. We’ve been looking at titanium bands for both of us on Amazon, both less than $10. I don’t think it’s a big deal.

If he is perfectly happy with it, I say get it and enjoy the savings! 🙂 I understand where you’re coming from, but if your Fiance is thrilled, there’s no reason not to save! He’s the one who is going to wear it. Good find!

don’t overthink it, if he’s happy with the ring, and you’re happy with the ring who cares the cost.

We found super-cheap tungsten bands on Amazon, but ended up going with Kay’s. Since you can’t resize tungsten, I wanted to get it from a place that would give us a replacement if FI’s finger changes size.

If he’s happy with it, and you’re happy with yours, go for it!
