We got his from Etsy seller Titanium Knights, for $66 including shipping. They were speedy and the ring looks terrific. We figured for that price if he needed a new size later on, ordering a new one was no big deal. Another thing we considered is in their 35 years, both sets of parents have gone through a few different gold bands due to them wearing out.

$1800 from Tiffany and Co. I’m sure we could have gotten a much more inexpensive ring that looks the same but it was convenient to get it at the same time we were getting mine.

$100, online from Titanium Kay. It’s tungsten carbide and he seems to like how shiny it looks. He still doesn’t want to wear a ring though so that’s why we didn’t spend a lot.

@ lemondrop- I plan on getting my mans ring from there too! They took the ring he liked most off the site though so I’m hoping they will do custom orders.

$400 from a Germany company TeNo. They have a store in Soho. It’s surgical stainless steel inlaid with black ceramic. He wanted something different.

We have not bought his ring yet.. but we are looking at some of the metals that can’t be resized. We are buying through devon’s and we were told that for a small fee, they will replace the ring in the future if he needs a different size, I think they said it would cost only like $50 or something.. so if he likes one that isn’t resizeable, ask the jeweler about a replacement option in the future if his size changes.

We’ve narrowed it down to two and both are about $750/ea. After reading this thread, I’m thinking we should definitely be able to get a better deal elsewhere…we were going to use the same jeweler where he got my e-ring…but…
I wonder if the diamond wholesaler/jewelers mark up more for plain gold rings?…is this where they might make up the profit for diamonds?

The price of gold has gone sky high in the last few years with the economic downturn, so a lot of people are turing to the Tungsten, which is great because it holds its shine over time, but sucks because it can’t be resized. My sister’s husband had gone through surgery to have his gallbladder removed a few weeks before their wedding and was so stressed out over the deal he lost weight and the ring was too big! There’s just something about the way gold (or white gold, which is what I’ll buy my FH), fits that makes me think I’ll go that route when it comes time to buy, even though it will cost more.

We went with tungsten. A lot of people brought up the sizing issue that schwickmar mentioned, but it only cost $40, so if it’s an issue we’ll get him a new one at that point! I know some people are very attached to their actual wedding rings, but my mom went through 3, my dad doesn’t wear his, and they’re super happy. 🙂
If you’re stuck on white gold and platinum, try finding a wholesale jeweller. My friends got their white gold rings at one in Toronto, and they were like $300 for both!

His was only $250, its a white gold very standard square style ring w/ a comfort fit. Mine on the other hand was $2000 eek!

Mr. Beagle’s ring is titanium, it was $89. I would suggest looking online. We found his on Amazon.

His ended up being right at $350, including the protection plan and tax. WAAAY more than mine is going to end up costing HIM, but I figure since he bought me this nice engagement ring, we’re pretty even.
We went cheap, though– the simplest white-gold bands we could find. His is 4mm and mine is 3mm. It’s extra to engrave, but only $15 each.
