My FH and I are finally getting around to doing some wedding bad shopping, and we’ve been pretty surprised at how pricey the mens’ rings are. I guess it’s pretty cheap if you get titanium or some other metal that can’t be resized, but he’s worried that he may need to get it resized at some point later in life. So we’re looking at white gold and platinum and the cheapest we’ve found is like $500? Any suggestions? we were looking to pay closer to $250-$300.

White Gold – $250. We got lucky though that we got it at the Michael C. Fina sample sale a few months ago in NYC. It was 40% off.

We haven’t ordered our rings yet but my FH’s is going to be about $350 for 14k white gold.

Try http://www.iweddingband.com and you should be able to find some plain metal ones for less (platinum and gold). But I should talk–we spent A LOT on FI’s 🙁

We got his for $100.00 on sale from 200.00. Look around in the ‘mall’ jewelry stores, they sell a lot of men’s rings that are not marketed as ‘wedding bands’ but look the same. And those places are always having great sales, some of them will even give you a deeper discount if they think they might lose the sale.

we’re paying $250ish for a simple white gold band, and then they said it’ll just be around $20 to get it engraved.

hubby ended up cost me almost $1000 – reason being he decided 20 seconds after i put the ring on his finger he didnt like rings, so we melted down the $300 ring and had our jeweller add more gold to it and a shark tooth he had from when he first started to dive and he wears it as a necklace (hes also a scuba instructor). the jeweller did an amazing job and he gets comments on it – not traditional but hes happy

@Noelle….. the minister was standing there and hes whispering to me “get it off”… afterwards he told me it hurt him, i said “what, physically or emotionally?” 🙂

$500. i bought it at a small local jeweler, which was nice. but afterwards i kind of wished i’d waited to get something vintage and cheaper (aka, lower-quality gold, since we don’t care about that kind of thing ovah heah.)

His is going to be $2,800 because it from some minimalist jeweler that works with special metal or something. http://www.stuartmoore.com/
He’s paying for the majority of it because I sure as hell don’t have $2K lying around 🙂

We got matching rings. I chose these because they are close to my grandmother’s weding ring. $350 apiece but I am so happy with them!

We are going the titanium band route because he really likes the wood that Zoe and Doyle use in their Etsy shop rings. They are about 200$

Well, we were quoted $299 for a 6mm yellow gold men’s band at Kay’s (locations all over the US!), BUT they are running a special fall promotion where if you spend $300+ you get a $100 off your purchase! Yay! So we bought both our rings together (my size 9 2mm comfortfit white gold ring came to about $60 and his 6mm yellow gold comfortfit ring sized 7.5(!) came to $250). Together, we got our rings (or will when they arrive in 1 week!) for $210! So exciting!

We got a great deal on a thin plain platinum band from BlueNile.com. Somewhere around $330, I recall.
