YUP! My temporary wedding band is just a silver band from Overstock.com that was like $20 and my husbands wedding band is white gold that was about $250 in Ocho Rios, Jamaica

I will get an upgrade sometime in the future but I just wanted a simple band for now because I didnt want to spend a lot of money!

Just like BanditGirl said mine is a smaller thinner version of his so his was a lot more than mine.

It probably will be. The ring I’m looking at is about $80, but I expect he’ll want something more than a gold band. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yep. I got a very nice wrap that was normally 2k but it was specially made for someone else as a special order so I got it for $800!!! I love it and I cried when I put it on. My Fiance wanted something very particular and it cost $1300 so his is more and I’m perfectly fine with it.

Yup. By $150. His is titanium; mine is white gold.

I haven’t bought them yet, but I know his is going to be more because he’s really digging the two-tone look or maybe some white gold with diamonds.

I don’t really care though, since I already have my e-ring – I get two rings & he only gets one, so it works out to be about equal. I’ve decided for my band I’m going to go super simple and have it white gold, with alternating moissanite & amethyst stones in order to compensate for his tastes.

Really, the most important thing is that he’s wearing one! Ha!

@shelbyfk: If it was one of the metals that you can’t break, it probably should have been CHEAPER than your ring. It’s the precious metals that are the most expensive. Did you shop around online? WHen we went to Kays and a couple other chain stores to see what we liked/get sizd, we found the markup to be outrageous. We ended up getting a custom ring for each of us online for much less.

@shelbyfk:My husband is a marine, too and he got an indestructible one, too. I bought his at the mall. He bought mine at a the Navy Exchange. Mine is plain, thin 14k gold, no diamonds, no gems, no engravings. His was definitely more expensive.

I’m the opposite Mine is more.  I getting him the bioblu 27 it doesn’t scratch and it is sizable. It’s the Troy brand and only 350 mine is 500.

I just picked up his band today! we picked them out a few weeks ago. his was more expensive than mine but not much. 480 for his 400 for mine, though the matching band to my ering was 1200 for the eternity and 800 for half way but the jewelers showed us some similar rings by another designer that i liked just as much for 400. i cant wait till mine is ready.

His wband was more than mine.  We both have simple white gold bands, but his is wider and with his larger ring size, the weight in gold is a lot more than mine, making it more expensive. [attachment=1473061,186779]

Ours too! His is a 5mm platinum band, with hand engraving of my fingerprint (the engraver basically traced my fingerprint – took 2-3 hours to do) – his was over twice the price of mine!
