Is this Costco band a good deal?

Hi everyone.

We upgraded my engagement ring a year ago, but were waiting to upgrade my wedding band (we married young, so it was just a cheap, $50 white gold band from a department store). I randomly tried this ring on at Costco, and was surprised how much I like it. I couldn't find any bands comparable in price through Whiteflash, IDJ, Blue Nile and the likes, but wanted to hear other people's thoughts on whether it's a good deal, or if I can get something of an even higher quality somewhere else. I am luckily a size 7, so no resizing is needed. They told me I can return it any time, even after a year, if I change my mind. I work in healthcare, so am looking for something simple but substantial enough to wear alone without my e-ring. What do you think?

This is a link to the ring I purchased (0.69ctw diamond band, VS2, I stones in white gold for $799.99):

The difference between my current band and the new one.

It looks beautiful. Costco's prices are very competitive. I browse and daydream at the jewelry case there all the time.

It certainly looks fantastic with your ring.

Beautiful, how thick is the band? I'm looking for something similar to that and was curious about this one!

Gosh, it looks beautiful and like it was made for your e-ring. If you priced out other bands that are similar to this one and this one has won out, then I say keep it! It's gorgeous as a stand alone too. Nice find!

I think it looks beautiful too! It looks to go perfect with your ering and looks to be very bright/white especially compared
with your old (I'm sure beloved) original setting. I dont think you'll do any better. Nice find!

Thanks, everyone! The deal seemed a little too good to be true, so wanted to check with the experts :).

kmk42019, I'm not 100% sure but if I had to guess, I'd say it's between 2mm-2.5mm.

tmot14,
Did you wind up getting the ring? If so, what do you think now?
Santa was a smart and generous man this year an gave me $ for "something shiny."
I haven't been to Costco yet today, but remember spying this little lovely there after your original posting.
thanks, KK
