Have you looked at any of the Levian bands ?? Also are you sure your ring isn’t strawberry gold? Here’s a couple of bands that are under 1000 .. Only thing is if you are wanting a wedding band to sit flush with your engagement ring it will have to be custom made..

How about a classic rose gold band like 3 mm ? Your ER will overpower any band but the classic polished gold peaking through will be a great compliment.

latoyaw1130 :  if you’re going to go custom, you’ll likely be able to have one made for less $$ at a local jeweler than at Kays.

Also, how do you envision a custom band sitting? Do you envision it wrapping around the square shape of your e-ring, or going straight under (you’d have to get the basket changed so there would be room).  Either way, taking it to a local, independent jeweler would be a good first step.

What a showstopper! Agree that taking it to a local place would be helpful– that way, you can try on a bunch of rings to see what you like, and the consultant there can tell you what they think might be possible in terms of a custom ring on your budget.

latoyaw1130 :  I would honestly go for a plain band.  I know you want something that sparkles, but seriously with that ering you’ve got all the sparkle you need.

Wow beautiful ring! Have you considered wearing the engagement ring on your left hand and then getting whatever wedding band you want for your right hand or vice versa? Not as traditional, but I think some Europeans wear wedding rings on the right hand.

I’d suggest going to a local jeweler.  My husband got me a rose gold set that we had custom made by a local jeweler (The same one who did my white gold e-ring), and the band was not $1,000. Also, it’s an eternity band, so the diamonds are going all the way around it.

Also, chain stores typically have higher markups and lower quality diamonds.  Local jewelers are almost always the better option.

latoyaw1130 :  Beautiful ring! Personally, I would find a small, family-owned jewelers and go there. That’s what I did, and I had a gorgeous, three-sided white diamond ring custom-made for about $1000. And the quality of this jeweler’s work compares to Tiffanys-quality. 

Shopping mall jewelery stores are trying to make as much of a profit as they can. So many family-owned jewelers have more of a focus on making a life-long customer out of you instead of making a quick buck.

latoyaw1130 :  Beautiful ring. I would definitely see a local jewelers like others are saying to have a band made. Or you can also email David Klass for pricing to make one. He is wonderful and great prices. He beat our local jewelers out.
