Mine was $250, it has pave set diamonds in a marquise pattern.  We got his Tungsten band off of Overstock.com for $60.  We had seen the same rings at our jewelry store for $300+.  It was inexpensive enough that I also bought him an engagement ring to wear.  I felt a bit bad that my band was so much more then his, but I love it.

The one my fiancee is giving me was her grandmother’s. The one I got her is a plain 22 karat yellow gold band that matches the one she is giving me. It was $155.61 from eBay UK. (Because the one she is giving me is 22 karat, it was very hard to find a matching one from a US seller.)

About $4000 for mine (white gold). My FI’s is cheaper thank goodness (tungsten), which is only a couple hundred. I think we might get his engraved, not sure with what yet!

My bands are going to be $4100.  They are platinum and diamond.  I have a band setting (hard to describe) as my engagement ring, so I thought it looked silly to have just one band…I’m a freak about symmetry,so I’m getting one for each side 🙂

My fiance wants titanium or tungsten–so we are figuring only a few hundred.

Probably no engraving.

Mine is kind of btwn Edwardian and art deco filigree white gold (custom mold), with a small cabachon ruby and some very small brilliant rubies around it.  I like the lighter color and they are small, so the stones were not very expensive.  Overall we were really surprised that he quoted $1300 for it all.  Fiance wants a steel band, so it’s like $30.

We spent $180 on his and $40 on mine. I ended up loving the simple, white gold, 2mm band! I think it shows off my solitare wonderfully. 🙂 And he loved the price! Engravings come free with Kay’s, but we haven’t done it yet.

mine was $100 and his was $250, they’re both simple white gold bands. they did engravings free because we had already given them so much business fixing my engagement ring. they both say “i am my beloved and my beloved is mine” in hebrew.

I told him that I didn’t want to spend a lot on my ring, but he basically ignored me.

We spent $150 on his ring because it can’t be resized and he’s trying to lose weight. He’s lost 50 pounds so far and has another 50 to go (in his eyes). We will be buying him another ring eventually so we went with something cheaper. He loves his ring though because he works on cars (as a side gig in our garage) and it can’t get messed up. He likes the fact that he can still wear his ring when he’s working.

Also, My initials didn’t change when I got married so I put the following on his ring…

TWS + AJS = FOREVER 11.7.09

My ring couldn’t be engraved because it has diamonds all the way around.

I also engraved his watch (wedding present). I wrote “TWS – Hi. I will love you until the end of time. – AJS” I almost just wrote the word “Hi” just because that’s so my personality, but I didn’t.

We spent about $2000 on both our rings and had our wedding dates engraved inside them. : )

We got both our wedding bands (6mm yellow gold confort fit for him, 2mm white gold for me) for about $300 (normally they would have been $425 together) on special because we bought them with my engagement ring. No engraving, although I have been thinking of it.

I don’t have the paperwork handy and can’t recall exactly, but both of them came out to just under $4000 (including tax) I believe. No engraving, that’s not my thing.

My bands were about $2300 (I got two- I’m also a freak about symmetry!), palladium with diamonds. Hubby’s wedding band was about $300 (tungsten)
