I’m shopping around for for my fiancé’s wedding band but I’m torn over what is a standard amount to spend. Some blog posts and guides say to spend around $300-500 but all the quotes I’ve gotten from stores are well over $1300. I’m not opposed to spending a bit more but I want to make sure I’m not getting ripped off. I’d like some context and info from fellow bees– how much did your hubby’s band cost?

I depends on what he wants. Mine wanted dark metal with 7 black diamonds. No idea where he came up with that, I assumed he would want a plain tungsten. It was just over $1000, a bit higher as it was custom. What does your Fiance want?

Ours were each $300 for the rings plus $50 each for a lifetime warranty from a mall store. We are very happy with them 🙂

The ring I WANTED to get him was roughly $2k, hand forged mokume gane in palladium and white gold.
His first ring was a $67 tungsten band we found at a kiosk in mall of america, and after he lost that we bought him an amazing stainless steel gear ring for $165, and its’ very *him*.

My fiance wants a plain platinum band. We saw it for various prices in stores ($1200+) so we’re getting it on Blue Nile for somewhere around $800 depending on which one he picks in the end.

I did the same for my husband! I had some of my old rings, family necklaces and silver dollars I got when I was born melted into it. The ring would have been $1800 but the man who made it was a family friend and I provided some metal so it cost me $1300. He gets tons of compliments on it because it looks so unique! You have great taste!

DHs cost $100. He’s scared he’s going to lose it and it’s made of stainless steel. Looks nice!
I think it really just depends on what your husband wants.

That is awesome! I still really want to get one for him, especially since his original had that wood grain pattern on the tungsten, but at the time he refused to allow me to spend that much money on “just a ring”. Still might get him one down the road because they are so unique, but we’ll see. 😀
You have great taste too, so glad I’m not the only one who loves those! ^.^

$16. White tungsten carbide.

$50 tungstun carbide. I’d worry less about the number and just look for something he likes and try to find the deal for that. And I am not of the belief that it has to be comprable to your set, or that you need to spend xyz cause of what he spent.

the guy who made his told me a story about a bride and groom who asked their family for old jewelry and they received enough to both get rings and he wrote them a check for $800… Try that route!
I’m done thread jacking- sorry!

20 bucks! Ebay and it’s made of cobalt chrome. He’s had several one silver and more tungsten. He has different rings to match his watches. But we both like the cobalt one the best

I got my soon to be hubby a Scott Kay Cobalt band which sadly they are discontinuing most of them, for $250. It is simple and beautiful and a great deal!
