Alright ladies, this is gonna make me sound like a total penny pinching miser (as I could tell by my mom's reaction).
My fiance got my engagement ring at Kay Jewlers. I LOVE it, it's gorgeous and very me, he did an amazing job. Now time for band shopping! My ring didn't come with a matching band, so Kay gives the option of custom bands. When I went in to get my ring checked for the warranty, I asked for how much a custom white gold band would be for my ring, just gold no diamonds. Got a quote of $800, which already made me cringe but I was like ok its a wedding ring and custom shaped. THEN, I asked to try on a straight white gold band. I liked the fit so I asked how much that one was... $100. IDK if it's just me but I can NOT justify an extra $700 just to get my band to lay against my engagement ring when I'm already getting them soldered together.
What about you gals? did you go with a custom band? Also if you have a band that doesn't go with your engagement ring please post pics!
