Just that really. How much have you spent or how much have you budgeted for both of your weddings rings?

Giraffeski Sun 11-Feb-18 10:04:59

Dh doesn’t wear one but mine was about £2500

Chasingsquirrels Sun 11-Feb-18 10:06:48

We married in 2016, they were about £1600 each. A lot more than we spent on any other part of the proceedings and we didn't even get then until after the wedding.

Mine was £500 and DH's £200. We don't have the money to spend ££££, but wanted rings that reflect that they are to be worn every day for the rest of our lives.

My ring was only about £200 dh's £300 mines a plain 2mm platinum don't know what his is.

Doobigetta Sun 11-Feb-18 11:56:28

Mine is only about £200, his about £400. Both plain platinum bands.

£40! My engagement ring is an antique and only 9ct gold so anything different than this would have damaged my engagement ring...! So a cheap as chips plain band to not detract from my engagement ring. DH's was a couple of hundred if I remember correctly.

Chasingsquirrels I’m intrugued what your rings look like/are made from to cost so much. Are they both full of diamonds?

ObiJuanKenobi Sun 11-Feb-18 12:04:57

My wedding band is about £1700 DHs about £500

notacooldad Sun 11-Feb-18 12:07:03

Neither of us have rings so a big fat zero was spent on rings!

gryffen Sun 11-Feb-18 12:08:52

We have matching gold rings that were £400 in total - estimated insurance at £1700.
(We used Macintyres in glasgow).

I had to get my wedding ring and new engagement ring cut off in April due to burnt hand and I know that I can go back and they will remelt and make it.

Engagement ring was bought on Honeymoon in Mexico at Lapis so that's getting remade at Macintyres too.

Have a good look around and also if looking for something diffent try Gemporia on tv.

My wedding ring was my great grandmother's so nothing and DH's was £500.

Oblomov18 Sun 11-Feb-18 12:17:49

Mine were very expensive. 3 - engagement, wedding and eternity. Made by a jeweller, platinum and diamonds. It was my choice to spend such a lot. But they give me a great deal of pleasure.

Bojangles33 Sun 11-Feb-18 12:21:15

Can't remember the exact price but they're both just plain bands so only a few hundred each. You can spend loads if you want diamonds but I think it depends what your engagement ring looks like. How much do you want to spend OP?

Worldsworstcook Sun 11-Feb-18 12:23:44

Mine was £30 and DHs £17 but he's never worn it, well he did initially but it got caught on a door handle just after we got married and hurt his finger so it's in my jewellery box

CurlyRover Sun 11-Feb-18 13:13:32

Bojangles I think ideally 1 k tops for the two and DP thinks around £500-600 each so slightly more if we go for the top end of what he thinks.

roseannaleeXo Sun 11-Feb-18 15:57:36

30 and a bit more for partners

Annabelle4 Sun 11-Feb-18 16:01:26

I think mine was £2,000. My wedding band was £500. They are probably my favourite possessions and we had a very small wedding that didn't cost much, so didn't mind spending that much money on them.

Dh decided not to wear one as he doesn't like jewellery. He bought one for the ceremony for less than £50

Chasingsquirrels Sun 11-Feb-18 23:01:17

@PaperdollCartoon
That's DH's (on my hand, he died 9 months after we married). It's platinum and gold.

Chasingsquirrels Sun 11-Feb-18 23:02:49

And this is mine, again platinum.
I didn't have an engagement ring.

HolgerDanske Sun 11-Feb-18 23:07:30

My fiancé won’t wear one and mine will be a 2mm platinum/diamond eternity ring at around £1200.

HolgerDanske Sun 11-Feb-18 23:07:32

HolgerDanske Sun 11-Feb-18 23:09:15

My fiancé isn’t going to wear one and mine is going to be a 2mm platinum/diamond eternity ring at about £1200.

HolgerDanske Sun 11-Feb-18 23:09:40

Oh heh sorry though the first one got lost!

Si1ver Sun 11-Feb-18 23:11:40

Mine was £450 ish. Plain platinum band with a twist to sit under my deco shaped engagement ring. My husband's was circa £1200 iirc, his is platinum, rose gold and carbon fibre.

I was happy to pay a lot more for his ring because he bought me a gorgeous engagement ring I really loved, and I can see how much he loves his ring every time he looks at it.
