1 mm wedding bands. Are they too thin and is it too simple to wear alone?

It’s very pretty but I’d go for 2mm just for piece of mind to give it a bit more sturdiness. I think 2mm still keeps the thin delicate effect (mine will be 2mm).

Hi @plainjesse:  first & foremost I see that you are NEW to WBee… so a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

Honestly… you have to go try them on.

It is the best way to see what suits you and what you like.

Originally I thought I wanted a 2 mm Plain WGold Band.

In the end I went with a 3 mm Sparkly WGold Band… lol, and then later I added a 2.5 mm Plain WGold Band so I had “options”

I personally tried on a lot of rings… and for me the 1 mm, 1.5 mm, and the 2 mm ones were just too delicate and didn’t balance out well with my ERing.

Hope this helps,

My wedding band is 1mm with pave diamonds. My jeweller isnt impressed with it (i didnt buy it from him) cause he says it wont last, and is too flimsy, but it was relatively inexpensive and im not fussed if i have to replace it in a couple years.  I agree with This Time Round, i think you have to try a few on and see what you like.

To @plainjesse:  I went with 2 WBands for a variety of reasons…

1- Because, Mr TTR isn’t a “ring” guy… so he decided earlier on he wasn’t going to wear a “W” Band (he got a W-Watch instead)… but still I had a ring (just that it fit me) that we used in our very Traditional Vows / Wedding Ceremony… it was slipped on his finger… then mine (along with my Sparkly).

2- So I have 2 WBands… both used / blessed during our Wedding Ceremony… I wear them both.

3- I actually have 3 Rings… 1 ERing and 2 WBands… one Sparkly & one Plain.  It is nice, I mix n match em.  Wear them 1, 2, 3 at a time.  Stack em.  Lots of options.  I like that

4- Having a REAL WBand (blessed from our Ceremony) means I NEVER have to go without… no matter what I do I have a REAL WBand to wear.  This is fantastic, as there are occasions when I want to protect my sparklies.

Any how, without further ado… some Ring Porn…

So as you can see… lots of options

Lol, infact we are coming up on our First Wedding Anniversary, and I am thinking of adding another ring to the mix… something stackable… gemstones.  Not terribly expensive, just pretty… and another option.

Hope this helps,

@plainjesse:  I LOVE LOVE thing wedding bands. There is just something about them that makes my heart flutter.

That said-I have broken my fingers so many times now that they are rather chubby so Im not sure how a thin one would look but I do love them!

1mm is super small [too small for me!].

I would agree with trying them on.

My stand in set has 2mm bands and I really like it.. I however have large fingers, so I didn’t want something so delicate it wouldn’t last long.

To @plainjesse:  actually they do match.

The Sparkly is 14 K WGold and aprox 3.0 mm and came from Peoples Canada (part of the Zales Group)

And the Plain is a 14 K WGold at aprox 2.5 mm (so just a tad smaller) and came from Zales USA

Side by each, they look virtually the same width.

I really wanted super thin 1 mm plain band too because what I love most about my Ering is that it’s thin and delicate looking and i wanted a band that wouldnt be noticable. and the band that was made to go with it , that’s 1.5 mm pave diamond band fit too perfectly and made it look just like a thicker banded e-ring. Well I ended up thinking I’d regret not having a nice band that was made for it so I bought that and then bought a cheap 1 mm thinbplain band from etsy similar to the one you posted to wear to work since I can’t wear any stone in my ring where I work. I like the look of the thin band alone- didn’t do anything for my e-ring. It is flimsy and could def bend but since its a cheapy I don’t care. honestly I mostly just wear my e-ring alone. I like how it looks and it’s  more comfortable.

@plainjesse:  I don’t have a photo, but I *almost* got a 1 mm rose gold band just like the one you posted for my wedding ring. In the end I went with something completely diferent but I still really love the look!!

I love the look of thin bands.  Mine is 2mm to match my e-ring, but I still think thin ones are very pretty by themselves.  My vacation stand in is 1.5mm, and it looks quite lovely by itself (no photos, sorry).
