I was shocked at the price of my band!!!  And not in a good way.  I have a custom ring, and felt like the jeweler was very smart for having all his custom erings (aka: I have no other band options!)  My band was $1,200.  But what did we pay for it?  $600.  WHY?  Cause we got our bands on Vday! The sales were SICK. 

Just goes to show you how over priced the industry can be.

e-ring def costs a lot more than my bands…i think that it tends to be the norm though some people choose a small ring for engagement due to circumstance and upgrade come wedding time.

Check with jewelers on Etsy–they may be able to reproduce what you have in mind for a lower price. I got my custom e-ring for around $500, if I remember correctly, and it has one sapphire and two colored diamonds. Granted the stones are all small, because I don’t like big stones (they just don’t feel good on my hand), but still–custom design, recycled gold, all for a great price. I’m sure you could find a deal on a band, too!

Since we knew what we wanted (and thankfully had work bonuses) we purchased our bands during the Valentine’s Day sale.  It was a nice saying, now I just have to put them somewhere where I won’t be tempted to wear it 😉

We haven’t purchased my band yet, but I have a feeling it’ll be much cheaper than my e-ring.

How exciting that you’re finally purchasing yours!

My wedding band was about 25% of my engagement ring cost.

i purchased my band and it was twice what my engagement ring was. my engagement ring is a white sapphire, my wedding band has ~1/3 ct diamonds it was $1400 (it was custom because i wanted palladium white gold). i wanted a wedding band that i would have forever. i have no regrets spending what i did on my wedding band. i looked everywhere and it was honestly the only one that stuck out at me and it matches my e-ring perfectly. i can’t wait to get it in (sometime next week!!). 🙂 his wedding band was half the cost of my engagement ring. we had the same woman who made my engagement ring make his wedding band, because he tried on at least 30 styles and hated them all. he only liked her hammered band styles.

My wedding bands cost about 1/4 of what my e-ring cost
