My FI and I are getting “matching” yellow gold bands. His will be 6.5mm wide. <br /><br />I’m debating between the 1.5 mm and the 2mm. I preferred the 2mm when worn alone, as the 1.5 is a little “insubstantial” however I like having the ring widths match. Also, I cannot engrave the 1.5mm one and we had planned on getting our wedding date engraved in the bands. Does the 2mm look OK with my e-ring?
First image shows a 2mm yellow gold band with my Ering; second image shows a 1.5mm paladium band with my Ering.<br /><br />My FI also wants to get me an eternity ring as a birthday present which is upcoming, and has asked me if I’d want that in 1.5 mm or 2mm… I don’t know! Please tell me what will look good. :)<br /><br />Thanks, love you bees!<br /><br /><br />

i like the thinner of the two! on looks alone, my opinion is that the shank on your ring is so dainty and feminine, i would avoid overpowering it with the wider band.

Are you going to wear your eternity ring with your wedding band? If so I say go with the 1.5mm because you will most likely always be wearing your band with another ring. If not and you plan on wearing the band alone a lot go with the 2.0mm. They are both so close in size, it just depends on if you ever see yourself wearing your wedding band on its own. I think they both look great!!!

The 1.5mm looks like it “matches” better with your engagement ring. I have a 1.5mm wedding band but it’s flat instead of a semi-dome or a dome and to me it looks perfectly unobtrusive when I wear it on it’s own (which admittedly isn’t often but every now and then I garden or forget my engagement ring at home). But that’s what I like.
If you like the 2mm, go for it. It looks great, if a bit mismatched. But I hear mix-n-match is a trend these days.
