    1. What's with all these wedding threads lately?
    2. $2000 to spend does not mean you are "poor."
    3. Find a few jewelry stores in your area. Visit them all and get a feel for price and see which places if any do financing.

    We got the damascus steel rings and I think it was around $1600 for both. His meteorite rings are pretty awesome too.

    My band was about $500 and I thought I was nuts for spending that much :)

    If you go white gold, get something thick that doesn't turn yellow. I've had my ring for a little over a year and it's still as white as the day I got it, where my friend's mall-jewelry-store ring has had to be refinished 3 times in the same year.

    The yellowing occurs because of a skin reaction to the white gold alloy under the rhodium plating, most commonly the nickel used in white gold alloys.

    The thickness of the ring doesn't matter, just the alloy content, and most reputable vendors are choosing palladium alloyed white gold to eliminate the possibility of yellowing.

    If a jeweler doesn't know the mix of their white gold alloy, skip them.

    As tacky as it might be, my favorite ring is from this place:

    http://www.jewelryexchange.com/

    It's like a wholesale jewelry place. Maybe check that out :dunno:

    IF this is your option, make sure what you are getting is durable and quality. a friend of mine bought his wife's engagement ring here, and she has to bring it in every 6 months to make sure its not damaged and none of the prongs are out of place, cause if they are, she will loose her diamond. and sadly, he paid the same amount for her ring we my husband paid for mine...and i will never have that issue.

    being a female, i LOVE getting my ring cleaned, but i would hate having to bring it in every six months for anything.

    Ours cost $330 all up on ebay.

    It's the symbol we cared about.

    They are matching 18ct White Gold flat bands. They do the job and we love them :)

    I would highly suggest NOT buying from a Jewelry Exchange. Do some research at www.pricescope.com and you'll quickly understand why.

    Built in "maintenance policy" - I'm not a fan of them. Just get the ring insured and you're done. :)

    In most mall stores/brick and mortar stores pay the inflated price for a vastly inferior product to cover the company's overhead. Just running a quick search on Pricescope's search engine gives you a good idea of what kind of overpriced diamonds they sell.

    Word, one of the cool things about our rings is that the steel in each came from the same billet. :hs:

    sadly, i have known many guys who think this is a thing they want, and one that was frustrated when the place he wanted to buy the ring didnt offer one.

    :eek3: Oh no, seriously?? The ring I have is diamonds and opals sent in white gold and I've never ever had a problem. I've had it for 4 years now and I never take it off.

    Wow. I guess we got really lucky. Good thing I know this now, I was about to go back soon :hs: Thanks guys <3

    amazon.com. Get the ring you want from other resellers, but at Amazon prices and protection. ;)

    I bought my wedding band (tungsten carbide) when it was 50% off for $150
    My fiancee's wedding band cost $300, and it was white gold with three small diamonds embedded

    $2000 is about $1200 more than you could possibly need

    oh, and that was at mall jewelers :dunno:
