Both of us feel really strongly that we want platinum rings — me b/c it would match my engagement ring, and Fiance b/c… well, he just likes platunum, and I figure he should be able to get whatever he wants after he dropped all that money on an engagement ring for me.  The one I’m looking at has tiny diamonds along the top side of the ring, and it costs something like $950 from Brilliant Earth.  I don’t know what FIs will cost, but I’m guessing in the $1000 range, so we’re looking at something like $2000 total for wedding bands.  Yikes!

Mine was $800 (white gold with diamonds), his was $285 (tungsten, no diamonds).  We’re not doing engraving because I don’t think you can engrave tungsten.

Ours will probably cost ~$500 for both (white gold) unless I decide I want a ring w/ diamonds.

I like the idea of engraving – maybe just our initials and wedding date?

When we chose my e-ring, we knew nothing would fit with it and decided that I would wear the e-ring on my right hand, and my wedding band on the left hand. When we started shopping for my band, I tried and liked some rings, but we came across a set that was simple, delicate and unique… he liked the look of two rings on the same finger.. never thought we’d be going the traditional route, but we bought it, and are totally in love with it!

So, about 225$ for the e-ring; then 400$ for the set and 380$ for his white gold wedding band – all of these include the taxes.

Oh and we intended to engrave our bands with a few words that are meaningful to us, that describe our relationship… but mine is too small to be engraved and we decided not to do it on his ring only. So no engraving for us!

If we buy the rings we’ve been eyeing, mine will be $800 and his will probably be around $1,000. Mine is not engraveable as it is oval bevel set diamonds all the way around and his  we will have the wedding date engraved.

Mine is a platinum Hearts on Fire band; it was around $2000 I think.

His is a platinum benchmark band and it is $1800
