What are old weddingbands worth? I saw a guy in brit selling one for 12mil was wondering if they were really worth that much. I have a 666, 1000 and 2000 wedding band, so wanted to know.

It actually depends on what kind of wedding band. The ones with just jewels like the ones you're suggesting aren't worth that much. However, there are wedding bands with special engravings such as, *insert name* loves always *insert other name*, or some variation of that kind which would be worth a lot.

It's all relative, but I dont think there's a big market for these items since most players would rather wear rings that actually do something as opposed to have an engraving. Although I guess my merchant character could wear it for kicks.

Ah, thanks for clearing that up. I'm sure the one's he was selling had the "insert name" option, or else he's a crazy person!

I'd think the ones with the names on them would be worth something. They came from that Magic Moments program, didn't they? And I don't think there were a lot of people who wanted to shell out $29.99 for a Magic Moments event.

I actually sold an invitation to a Magic Moments wedding on Lake Austin a while back.

You can't make jewelry with multiple jewels anymore either. It's A diamond necklace or whatever. I have a set of two wedding rings with 1000 diamonds each, and have been offered about 20 mil for them. A friend made them for me tho, so they have sentimental value.

Actually some of the inscribed ones (the really old ones) used to be made by the Royal Armorer and Jeweler (or something like that). When Kamar and I did are wedding ceremony (again, years ago) you could make a request to the GMs and Councilors to hold the ceremony without paying any extra money for it. They would then give you the ring etc.

Then Garod mentions that he recalls there was a second "event" type thing with some scrolls you could give to sign wedding contracts. I vaguely remember something about that, but don't remember much unfortunately.

*uses the opportunity to post really old wedding pics, held when there was only felucca..*

The only ones we have now are ones made by Cherry herself in the early years. We used two of them for when Cherry and Decardo got married back in Jan 2004 after our characters had been together a year.

Posted a couple of nostagic pics as well from that time, the ceremony was conducted by Vanqa and Cherrys maid of honour was Megan De'LionCourt. We just wanted a small private wedding, it was held in the mystical Eska'eldalie.

We should have a big Wedding Pic folder :)

Never was much on collecting the (insert #)diamonds.. well cause I don't especially like diamonds.. but I have a ton of Amethyst pieces and one very special engraved ring that is probably 6 or 7 years old now.

On PAC we occasionally have an old wedding band come thru the Pacific Auction House, they generally fetch anywhere from 20k to several million, just depends who is there bidding at that paricular moment. Note that these are the generic , multi-jeweled weddingbands tinkers used to make, not the engraved ones. Those are priced in the stratosphere:]
