So, I am on the hunt for a band that is under $150. Our budget got obliterated by unemployment and medical bills, so a custom band for my unique e-ring is unattainable right now. There’s also the little problem of trying to get my Fiance to understand WHY a separate band is important to me, but that’s a whole other subject…
At this point I’m leaning towards sterling silver for the band. I’m leaning toward wearing my e-ring on my left hand (cause that’s where I like it) and getting a plain-ish band for my right hand.
Are there any other laies who have or are doing this? Anyone found any sites or actual stores they could recommend? Thanks so much!
Here’s a pic of my e-ring too:

We used e-weddingring.com and really liked them. They had all sorts of metals, styles, and sizes and engraving was free.

I wanted a plain white gold band and we got mine for I think $79? It was on sale at Marks and Morgan but even before the sale price it was only like $99.

I got my wedding jewelry from this site and I love the stuff that I got. They have a ton of bands.

Thanks so much ladies! I’m not sure if I’m crazy thinking about sterling, but gold just seems to be out of reach for that price.

@cleve_girl01: I don’t care for sterling, you have to clean it all the time. I would look at a 925 silver or stainless steal. I have a ton of both and you would never know they are not from a more expensive jeweler and they don’t need the cleaning.

I’d suggest going to some outlets like Zales or Kays…check out your nearest Outlet Mall.

I bought a plain, white gold band from Amazon for $80 and I love it! It’s the smallest band they had – 3mm, I think.

Fiance and I got ours from JVLJewelery.com for $50 for a set of Tungsten bands. The list price is around $300 each, but there is a code for free rings, just pay shipping. PM me if you want a code. I got an extra one to share with friends and family in the package with our rings.

Kay.com or KayJewelers.com (can’t remember the actual site) sells clearance and pre-owned jewelry, you might be able to find something you like for a lot cheaper than you would think. As for switching hands, I personally wouldn’t but to each his own. Symbolically, wedding bands go on the left hand because there is a vein that goes right from your left ring finger to your heart or something (or so the old wive’s tales tell me LOL) so if anything I’d wear my wedding ring on my left hand and flip the engagement ring to the right. In the orthodox church they put the rings on the right hand, which is their tradition, and everyone I know switches them to the left after the ceremony…except my sister in law who had surgery on her hand shortly after the wedding and has to wear them on the right hand…she’s not thrilled LOL.

i’d say any online store:
You could get a gold band for around $50, or maybe you could find something at a pawn shop or a consignment shop

I’m confused, why would you wear your engagement ring on your left hand and wedding band on the right? Arent they both supposed to be on the left?
But etsy has some great options for silver wedding bands

I wear a band one each hand because in my cultural background the wedding rings(s) are worn on the right. But I like rings anyway and that might confuse people where I am in Canda, so why not both hands!
I definitely second the Etsy reccomendation.
This seller has lots of gold-filled and sterling silver:
This seller has tungsten and titanium:
And, there’s even a ton of vintage solid gold rings on Etsy for very cheap, if you’re into vintage.
