Wedding Band Prices
Posted 17 October 2008 - 11:14 AM
My FH and I got in to a "heated discussion" let's say last night about the price of the wedding band I'm getting custom made to match my engagement ring. I was quoted $1500 for the band and maybe it's because I'm all hopped up on painkillers this week, but it didn't occur to me to bargain with the jeweler who is making it.
I'm not going to lie, $1500 is more than I wanted to pay, but if I love it and have to look at it forever, it may as well be something I'm in love with, right? I feel like I'm crazy!! My FH, being the practical guy that he is, doesn't see spending that kind of money on a wedding band (piece of jewelry to him...ha!) as being practical. Needless to say we kind of had a big blowout about it.
He's over it now but it got me wondering, how much are you all spending on your wedding bands ladies? Surely there must be someone who sees my point of view on this! lol

We were both fine with the prices we paid, but it's also relative, based on your budgets, etc.

So then he tells me he was thinking about paying for it before I went and picked out a $1500 ring. Would be nice if he would verbalize his thoughts more often lol. Oh well, I told him if I feels bad for not paying for it because it's too expensive then he can pay for part of it. Doesn't make a difference to me. We didn't have a budget but he figured I would have the good sense to question the jeweler. I even asked my FI to come with me and he said no....this is exactly why I wanted him to come with me though! lol

I had no idea that they cost that much- Francis bought them without me [he had my input on what I wanted] and when we went to go take out extra house insurance on them, I nearly lost my marbles when I found out their cost.

FI's band (yellow gold) was $190. I got it for a steal on a great site called Pompeii3.
So I guess I"m not helping! I'd love to see Heather's set, btw! I'm dying to see what $17,000 on your finger looks like. I think I'd be very nervous wearing that much though!
