We had originally budgeted $350 for his and $500 for mine. But we got a steal on a titanium band for him for $30!!!! And another steal on a great band for me for $215. So altogether: $245. We’re cheapo’s! But we love our bands!

We spent $148 on two 14k gold wedding bands with our date engraved inside. We both are minimalists and traditionalists, we have small fingers and we got 3mm instead of something thicker. I love them, and I still can’t believe they were only $74 each!!

Yikes! I feel like the big spender!!

Mine is a 4mm platinum band with 8 diamonds and 2 gemstones (our birthstones) scattered in it. It was $1650 from a custom jeweler. 

His is a 6mm white gold brushed band that was $256 for the materials and a (different) jeweler friend made it for us as a gift. 

No engravings.

Mine is $2k. It has diamonds and matches my engagement ring setting.

We haven’t gotten his yet, but I’ve priced around and it will prob end up being $350

Wow – there is quite the range out there – I guess it’s good that we have choices these days. We went with non-matching bands; 11 channel set diamonds for me in 3mm white gold at $750 and plain 4mm white gold for him at $250. Our jeweler friend didn’t charge us tax so we came in right at $1000 which was more than we originally wanted to spend but that price of gold just kept going up!

We didn’t go the engraving route because our jeweler reminded us that, though it can be touching, engravings can get ruined or stretched if you have to resize your ring. Not that I’m anticipating that but we figured not worth the hassel or expense.

Our engraving will be free I think because we spent so much with this jeweler already. Our bands don’t match; mine matches my set and his is custom. The total for both will be around $3600. Both of our bands contain diamonds and the metal is 18k gold (white for mine; white and yellow for his).

My ring was $140 (on sale), it’s a 3-mm flat white gold band.  I wanted something very plain with no stones.  I teach young kids, so I wanted something that I didn’t have to worry about at school.  I also wanted to keep a clean look with my engagement ring, so that the stone would really shine.  His ring was $60 (including shipping)–a 6-mm tungsten ring.  The jewlery store where we bought my ring was selling the one he wanted for $375, but we found the exact same ring at a fraction of the cost!

We didn’t engrave our rings, so I guess we spent $200 combined.  We were happy because we saved money AND got the rings we wanted. πŸ™‚

Our bands don’t match.  But they both very much reflect our individual styles πŸ™‚

Mine is a 7 stone, prong set, 1.5 carat diamond band, set in 14K white gold – $2500

He chose a Tungsten band – $89!  

Our wedding bands are each engraved with our anniversary written in Roman Numerals – so it looks like this: II.XV.MMVIII

hubby’s ring was about $900 (platinum) and was engraved with our wedding date as well as something that only has meaning to us. We got it from ebay lol But, it was exactly what he wanted and he was happy with it. Mine was about $1500 i think (with tax) but couldn’t have engraving. It’s platinum with bezel set diamonds with miligrain around them. Came from brilliantearth.com Our rings definitely don’t match :p

Mine was 900 and his was 700- we got a great deal from our jeweler or it would have been way more!
