I’m in the market for a new stunt ring as the last one turned my hand green! My everyday ring is 14K, so I was going to stick with that as I know I’m not allergic to it. I was thinking 2-3mm but am flexible. I’ve seen $75 through JCPenney or Sears, but am wondering if there’s something cheaper online and I really don’t know enough about rings to search online and not get scammed! Some detailing would be fine, I really just want something I can work out wearing without worrying that it will be damaged.

I have a 2mm one from Blue Nile that was $120. They have sales every now and then, so sign up for their mailing list!

If you want something cheaper than $75, titanium or stainless steel bands can be purchased on amazon.com for $0.01 (+ shipping). I’ve worn a titanium ring daily for 1 year now and it takes a beating without any problem. I’d look at something like this
Titanium Polish Wedding Band

Be careful. The cheaper the band the cheaper the metals then mix with it And can cause reactions When worn.
Check out weddingbands.com. They have good rings cheap

Check Amazon.com I’ve seen really decent white gold bands for cheap. Also the chain stores by me ( Zales and Littman) had thin 2mm white and rose gold bands on sale for 70$. Check any chain mall store for comparison.
As a suggestion, are you open to sterling silver for a stand in? My girlfriend couldn’t afford a gold wedding band so she ordered a sterling silver band for 50$ off Amazon and wears it every day next to her engagement ring.

What about Etsy? Sometimes I see really good deals on white gold bands and some of them are from really well known sellers (at least the thousands of reviews makes me believe this) and they’re not breaking the bank.
I used to wear sterling silver all the time and just picked 14K white gold for my actually wedding set, but that’s a great alternative until you have more money to pick a whitegold band.

I echo the poster who recommended Etsy. Depending on how you feel about auctions, you might be able to snag a better deal on Ebay, though. From what little searching I’ve done, I saw a few 14k white gold bands in the $60-$80 range, but if you’re open to yellow, I saw a few auctions well under $50. My only concern is that you’d have to ensure that you get the proper ring size; it doesn’t sound like resizing’s in your budget.

I suggest going to a jeweler that buys jewelry or a pawn shop. I just found a vintage 14kt yellow gold ring with diamonds that needed work (resizing and shank built up). He only charged me $65 for it. Plus I do not have to pay for shipping.

How about these? They’re not as cheap, but the reason I suggested these rings is because, e weddingband’s plain rings are die struck and not casted, so if you want something durable and tougher, you should go with them. Their prices are great for the quality. I honestly wouldn’t trust a 14k ring that’s extremely cheap if it’s something that I’m going to wear everyday.
