Hello Bees! I am starting to look at wedding bands and I wasnted to know where you all got yours. I am thinking I want a pave dimond band, we have a bunch of small diamonds that I could have one cutom made, but I’m starting to think that might be out of our budget at the moment so maybe a band upgrade at a latter time.
Anyway, please let me know where you got yours and if you have a picture of it please show it off!

I sold this band, but I believe I paid around $300 from an etsy shop that no longer exists
This band(pave band on bottom) is from LOGR on etsy, which I think now they only sell on ebay. It cost about $250
And here are two that I’m having trouble deciding between as my new wedding band. Both are a little over $500 and measure 3mm

I went through a few options while trying to figure out the “perfect” band to go with my anniversary ring. And then, I decided to finally get a band to make a set with my original YG ERing. So … I have a few different bands.
Gypsy/flush set platinum band from James Allen (3mm wide?). This is the band I finally settled on for my anniversary ring. (DH picked it, actually.) This is probably the band and set I wear the most.
14K, 2.5mm rose gold band from E-Weddingbands.com
14K yellow gold scroll band (I think it’s actually 4mm at the widest point) from E-Weddingbands.com
.5 TCW half eternity in white gold (2mm wide?) from Zales
And my original wedding band, which is the ring we exchanged at our ceremony. It’s 18K white and yellow gold, about 5mm wide. We got it from a jewelry store in San Antonio, TX called Luxor Jewelers. (Why can I remember this, but I can’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday? LOL) But this store is no longer in business.

I actually just purchased mine today. my e-ring (soliataire) is from Blue Nile and they often send me emails when there are sales, and I got one this morning with an offer for 100$ off any regular priced item over 200$, and the band that matches my e-ring is a 2.5mm plain 14k white gold band that was normally 230$ . So today I was able to get it for 130$ which was too good to pass up.
Unfortunately with a site site like Blue Nile you can’t try before you buy, however their return policy seems quite good if you aren’t happy within 30 days. I had their ring sizer sent to me in the mail so I was already sized properly but buying online can definitely be a money saver!

Will more than likely be going with this ring (except in white gold, not yellow) from Etsy. Fiance says he wants to upgrade later, but for now this is really pretty, suits my engagement ring and is in our budget:
A small part of me is still torn on this ring, I admit. It’s only about $20 more and it suits my tastes beautifully. However, it doesn’t really match my engagement ring at all which is causing the biggest hesitation. It’s also from Etsy.

I had my wedding band custom made. It was a really fun process and I got exactly what I wanted. I have a few sets, but I just bought a pearl wedding band off of etsy. I have read on the bee about people having issues with etsy, but I have always had a good experience.

I’m currently looking for a wedding band as well. I would suggest looking on Etsy. They have some pretty stuff at good prices. I’ve narrowed down my choices to four bands on Etsy so I’ll probably order mine from there once I make up my mind which one to go with. From what I’ve seen, you will get better quality for a better price on Etsy than at some jewelry stores like the ones in the mall. Just be wary of the seller and read reviews before you order anything.

Sparkly_Pear: FI is getting my band from the same jeweler he got my engagement ring. It is a matching set, the band is all baguettes. Sorry I forgot to take a pic of it but to get an idea here is my ER:

Excellent post! Thanks for making the topic, OP! and if anyone has suggestions for good places to get platinum bands, I would greatly appreciate it!

ladybug55078: Thanks! I’ve looked on Etsy and I’ve found some I love, I’m just scared to spend a bunch of money on something and have it not work out. I keep reading the Esty seller horror stories and it scares me.
MrsSparkleBee13: Can I please just have all of your bands and e-ring? Everytime I see your rings I love them more and more.

Sparkly_Pear: My band is from Henri Daussi. It was originally White gold and Sapphires had it changed to Platinum to match my Engagement Ring and emeralds for DH’s birthstone (my Birthstone is a diamond) I got it from the Jeweler who made my ring. I love it, it was a great price $1400 and Darling Husband said we can get more once we start having kids with their birthstones!

DoAmore.com for mine; Staghead Designs for his. But staghead can do some personal design, I believe, too. I think both places have several different metal options…

We got our matching wedding bands from Amazon. Yup, amazon. It was a total of about $40 for both, and they are tungsten carbide. We wanted them to match, price/material was not important for us. The look with my ering took a little getting used to, I’ll be honest. I wanted some more sparkles, but I realized that was not as important as our bands matching. Now I love my combo because its unique!!!
Sorry if these pics are huge, and I suck at taking ring pics, obviously!!! LOL!

Mine is from the same local jewelry store where Darling Husband got my e-ring. It was special ordered because they didn’t have my desired width in stock, but it was still very reasonably priced. It’s not blinged out like what you’re looking for though.
