    I think it’s just jeweler’s mark up. We bought my hubby’s original from Zales for $300 and he lost it…..so we bought another one from Ebay for $20 and it is just as good of quality….needless to say, I now feel dumb spending the $300 in the first place…

    I have a tungsten ring that I bought on ebay for around $60, it’s just a simple band with a small diamond set into it and it has held up really well.  I work in a restaurant and am really rough on my hands, a lot of my crew don’t wear their rings because the metal cut glove we wear scratches and damages the ring, but I haven’t had any issues.  I would recommend buying off of ebay or amazon over a jeweler.

    We got him 2 rings.  One from Amazon, one from Blue Nile.  The only reason we got the blue nile one is that it is a lighter color which he wanted and I couldn’t find it on Amazon.  They are the same quality…  One was 30 and one was 150.

    We got DH’s from Amazon because he wanted tungsten carbide.  It’s excellent quality and I’m pretty sure we paid less than $100.  We couldn’t tell the difference from the jeweler’s rings at $200-$300+.  We’re very pleased with it.

    Go with Amazon, avoid the jeweler/retail markup.

    Amazon all the way! Darling Husband found a specific style at a jewlery store that he liked or we would have gotten it online.

    Bought Fiance his tungsten ring off of Amazon. It’s a comfort fit and we got it for $20! I originally got it for him to size his finger in case we ended up ordering a wedding band online, but he loves the Amazon ring and he doesn’t want me to buy another! Its what he wants to use as his permanent wedding band 🙂

    Absolutely go online! We got his original ring at our Jewelers for about 120$, it was an 8mm black ceramic band. He decided afterward that it was too wide and found the exact same ring in 6mm online for 16$ (amazon or ebay – can’t recall now.) When the ring came it had a tiny chip on the inside so he msg’d the seller and they told him to keep it and sent a second ring at no charge. A few months later he decided he wanted a dark gunmetal tungsten comfort band and ordered that one too and now he has 3 rings for a total of less than 40$. I told him I want 3 rings so I can switch them out too Wink

    My FI’s tungsten ring came from a jeweler for around $200… My brother paid $400 for his. I’ve been curious about buying a super cheap ring on amazon instead, but I’m suspicious. There’s a reason they’re so much cheaper. What’s the catch?
