    i really need wedding bands ideas? Budget 5k - 10k

    I don't like diamonds at all so anythig that does not have shiny rocks on it. I don't like rings that are too big or thick either, something that looks elegant I guess. I'm kinda lost I don't understand how jewelery works icon_sad.gif

    LOL,, you really don't understand! You won't need 5-10K for 2 men's rings!
    If you skip the rocks ( we did too) you can get a couple of really nice bands for a fraction of that cost.

    Here's a decent place to get ideas....icon_cool.gif
    Jewelry is so personal, none of these may for either of you, but it's a reference point to get your creative juices flowing...icon_cool.gif




    Thanks for that site! I just want a cool ring lol. I've never bought jewelry before so I really have no idea about what to expect price wise for men's wedding bands. Thanks for that site! I liked this style:

    Our little boy is getting married. A bittersweet day for so many of us on so many levels.

    When I got married (17 years ago this coming Saturday) I worked in a high crime area so I intentionally wanted to get the cheapest wedding band possible in case I got mugged. I know it was a long time ago but I spent all of 29.99 on a cheap, simple 18k gold band for myself (I guess gold was low at that time). I ended up never getting mugged and I still wear the same wedding band to this day.

    It won't happen right away but ya were planning to get married sometime in 2014. I don't think criminals would know how expensive the ring is, I don't like jewelry that looks expensive(gold colors, diamonds and oversized pieces) I like white(white gold) or black(titanium) ideally I would like the expensive part to come from the crafting itself maybe some details in the inner ring. I don't know... that's what i think i like right now it may change when I actually see these things in person.

    Charlitos:

    The ring you picked out is a great choice for men. It has a smooth profile, rounded edges, low relief and no fenestrations (cut-out areas that collect crud). That means It can be worn through every activity from mowing the lawn to changing the oil to tuxedo formal. A man's ring shouldn't have to be taken off for dirty, messy activities--that's how they get lost and besides, there's the symbolic reference as well.

    Pay attention to the metal--get the strongest most durable metal that has appeal for you personally. Again, the symbolic reference to the durability of a relationship but also, it's going to be on you for a lifetime of typical men's activities. In gold, the higher the carat, the softer the metal. 18 carat is the most beautiful and pure (i.e., not mixed with another alloy like nickel) but it will be a disaster for you--it will show every dent, scratch and ding. This just turns out to be a pain in the ass. If you"re gonna do gold, what you really want is plain and simple 10 carat. I like the titanium idea myself. Stainless steel makes a lot of sense as well.

    Congrats!

    My taste ran complete opposite: loaded with rocks, chunky Titanium.
    Biggest mistake I made was in sizing; had to send ours back (his twice) as Titanium can not be re-sized.
    Go by a jewelry counter and try a few on to be sure of fit and comfort, don't assume that if you're the same ring size, the same ring will fit you both nicely FOREVER.

    Look for a good local jeweler- The small places tend to do custom pieces and youll end up saving more money than buying from big box places. Any good place should be able to look at a picture and create whatever you are looking for. Also, gold is at $1600ish an ounce so keep in mind that the bigger the ring size and width= the more metal you'll be using thus increasing the cost.

    Also tip: You'll hear "comfort fit"- its a scam to make the band thicker claiming its more comfortable, except its just a reason to use more metal and charge you more. Stay away from this especially if you don't like bulky thick rings.
