Wedding rings…….

When shopping with my wife for our wedding rings we were a little suprised by the price of gold bands. Most basic gold bands for females were between 200 and 500 dollars, most male bands were between 500 and 1,200 dollars. These prices are before tax. After doing a little investigating I've found that the price of gold has gone up dramatically in the last year from $655 an ounce to $950 an ounce. The price of jewelery reflects this jump. As we're not rich we're considering different options like silver bands. I was wondering if anyone else has combated such a problem, and what your resolve was?
