Mine: Engagement ring 3k (Moissanite and lab grown diamonds). Wedding band 1300 (lab grown diamonds)
Husband: 800$ (gold with wood inlay)

Just looked at some - mine will be around $1,500 and his will be around $500 but there are much cheaper options too!

Spouse and I both have platinum wedding bands, both were around $1500. Not sure what the average price point is.

My husbands was two-tones with some engravings - about $3K I think. Mine was about $5K but had diamonds all around

Thanks everyone, appreciate the input

I woudlve been very happy w a $2k engagement ring. Husband went for ~8k (eek!) because he got it from the same jeweler his dad got his moms ring from & they are local w a limited selection/extra fancy. That plus he got a nicer stone than necessary. Wedding ring was $2k, its an eternity band that matches the engagement ring.
His wedding ring was $400, made from non gold materials.

Just the bands? Mine was $1100 and I got my husband two Tungsten metal bands, $400 ea. (He was torn between black and classic)

I was never one to believe in zodiac signs and all of that and would honestly laugh at the thought of people taking them so seriously but over the last year or so I feel like I’ve come to realize how accurate they sort of are to describe people.

Somewhat Deloitte specific, but the Deloitte bowl is mean so posting here

I’m up for promotion this year, and I’ve been working so hard and my feedback is amazing and I’ve wanted this for awhile. Now, an immediate relative is actively dying and I may go out on a short leave, and I also have some PTO planned so that I can visit family oversees later this fall. With all that’s happening, I’m not going to hit my 90% utilization target, which is a checkbox in my promo. (cont).
