Hey bees! I’m curious to know how much you spent on your wedding bands and where you purchased them from. I’m looking for a place to start looking and since my ering is an odd shape and low on my finger, I’m gonna need all the help I can get.
Also, share a pic just because 🙂

My husband’s band was about $250 since he wanted a plain titanium band. I actually got two because I liked the look of a diamond wrap so much and my ring didn’t fit into the wraps very well due to it being in a cathedral setting. Total my two bands were around $1000.

Fi’s ring was abour $800, mine was $2300 I think? His is white gold with a design (don’t have a pic right now) and mine is 18k white gold eternity band, something like 2mm wide. I can’t even tell you total carat weight. It was just pretty and I wanted it.

- Wedding: June 2014 - British Columbia
beachbumm105: Bought husband’s wedding band at a jeweller’s in my hometown in Southeast Asia. After exchange rate, approximately $346 CAD. It’s super soft though as it is close to 24k gold. My family knew the jeweller well, so he treated us really well with giving some discounts.
My wedding band was approximately 799 CAD + 5% gst. It was on sale down from $1,000 CAD. My rings are from Paris Jewellers.

$2100 (ish) for both my fi’s comfort fit platiumum and my diamond and platinum.
This incs some minor tweaks to get it spot on and sizing/engraving.
This would have cost nearly double at uk prices.
After a day in NYC diamond district, we bought from michael at Kent jewellers. A very nice shop, non pushy, GIA trained and totally ‘got’ what we needed straight away and suggested some changes to make it perfect.
I too had a tricky e-ring to match with.

Our matching custom Mokume Gane rings were $1200. It was a splurge for us to spend that much but we both love them so much it was totally worth it. We bought them from an Etsy seller in Colorado. She was amazing and worked with us on the price so they were a little closer to our budget.

UK-bee: just wondering, I keep seeing ladies say diamonds in Europe are super expensive. Why is this? I tried Google-ing it and all I got were pages about why diamonds are a waste of money. 😕

heartforge: that’s a cool photo!
skplue: I’m not really sure. My fi did a ton of research and apart from old cuts, diamonds and plat are considerably better value in America (not sure about gold ‘cos wasn’t checking those prices).
i can only put it down to market forces. Diamonds in e-rings are generally smaller here (average .4ct I believe), and fewer people!

$0, I choose to wear only one ring, so I’m no help with band shoping, but want you to know that it’s an option to go bandless.

beachbumm105: I totally feel ya on the low, odd shape ering!
My band was a little over $2K – 1ctw crossover band. DH’s band was $930 I believe.

ours were 2600 and 1600 respectively because they’re from a luxe shop and are platinum. We wanted to “match” my ering which is also from there, also platinum. We love them but not the best deal in town, for sure.

MrsBuesleBee: I bought my husband a Brietling (Avenger II) the day we got engaged!
My plain platinum band was around £600 from memory, and my husband’s plain platinum band around £1,400. Both from De Beers on Bond Street so a bit expensive but my engagement ring came from there. I love platinum and my then fiancé fancied it for him.

$25 for both.
His tungsten carbide ring was $14.99 on Amazon and mine is from Amazon too and I paid $10.24. Mine is sterling silver and cz. His has never scratched and looks like when I first bought it 4 years ago, and since I wear my anniversary ring on its own so often I didn’t want to spend a bunch on a wedding band for myself. I did have the gold and diamond version of my band but returned it because the milgrain irritated my other fingers. I loved the band though so when I saw the sterling version for dirt cheap I got it to try it out and it fits and looks better than the gold and it’s also a lot more comfortable. 😄
Our original wedding bands were $250 for mine on overstock and $30 for his titanium which ended up being too soft and scratched too easily.

I had my solitaire, so it is my wedding ring, I just recently got it reset into a tiffany style setting to symbolize something new and different from when we were engaged.
I have a few bands plan and CZ to wear with it when I feel like I want more to it, CZ was $68 and the plain bands (2- 1white gold and 1rose gold) were $100 each but I bought them myself.
like Mrs. Cassie, I only wear my solitaire. Two rings on my hand gets a little “cluttered” for me sometimes
