    I’ve actually heard a lot of brides getting their hubsand’s TG bands for very cheap, and they last just as well as the others.  I remember there was actually a place giving them away, only asking for shipping and handling, and everyone was pleasantly surprised how nice the rings were.  I hope some of those ladies see this thread.

    We bought FI’s tungsten carbide rine on Amazon for $25. EXACT same as what we looked at at Kay’s (or somewhere like that) for $250. It’s great. And actually, they didn’t have the width at Kay’s (only 4 mm or 8 mm and FI wanted 6 mm).

    Definitely would recommend it. Now, the only thing about Ebay is you have to read return policies very well. I liked getting it from Amazon because they had free returns in case the size didn’t work out or we thought it was junk.

    JVL has coupons codes for free rings (you only pay shipping) and they come out to about $25. Lots of bees have used JVL. I don’t see why ebay would be different.

    From what I’ve seen tungsten is tungsten-no matter where you buy it

    We purhcased his on Amazon.com for $30.00! It was the same ring as in the store where we priced it for between 300 and 400 I think. He loves it and it is a very nice ring. I felt guilty purchasing such an inexpensive ring, but he wanted it and didn’t seem to mind that it wasn’t from a jewelry store.

    We bought a tungsten ring off Ebay.  The seller had an actual website but also sold rings on Ebay; we were able to “make an offer” lower than their retail price which was nice.

    I bought my DH’s replacement ring from that seller. He loves it and it’s heavy and does not feel cheap! He has had it for 3 months now and it’s prefect!

    Got his from amazon for less than $40.  Great quality.  I’m sure it is exactly what they sell at higher end jewelers. People are just uninformed that tungsten carbide is very inexpensive so jewelers price them similar to 14K gold to rip them off.

    Tungsten is tungsten. Wherther you pay for the huge markup at Jared, or buy it from a seller on eBay, it’s still tungsten.

    Just think, eBay seller don’t have the overhead of running a brick and mortar store, so they can charge less for certain items. Tungsten rings are often inexpensive, but the quality is not cheap. Def go for the ring tht isn’t ridiculously marked up.

    @mbird86:  There’s a huge markup on tungsten and titanium rings. Why pay more than you have to?
