I dont have a super thin band on my engagement ring or wedding band but I have two diamond eternity bands I wear on my right hand ring finger and they are 1.7mm 14k white gold..I always wear them and hardly ever take them off..ive had them for about a year. They have held up great!..they are still a perfect circle. I think you should be fine but just incase I would take it off when doing anything that could possibly damage it plus its 18k which makes it slightly softer. You could have your rings soldered together after your ceremony which would make them stronger

I have a very thin band, and the only time I’ve been worried was when we were at the batting cages, lol. But I insured the ring so that takes away a lot of the anxiety.

Insure your ring.

Wear it often enough to enjoy it.

Have the setting checked by a professional every 6 months.

Choose a wedding band that not only looks good with the e-ring but looks good on its own.  Sometimes its nice to just wear the wedding band.

My band is super thin and at the store they told me that getting it polished too frequently could weaken the band. The metal can wear away with time but I think you would be able to notice it getting thinner if it wore away enough to break.

i agree w/ all the insurance comments above

I’ve had it for 7 months – the band is less than 1mm. I wanted a very delicate look. Highly recommend insurance – mine is through Perfect Circle.

Mrs.DK:  A little! But I also have a stand-in I (usually) wear during sports/working out, etc. – I was so nervous at the batting cages without the stand-in! But I also didn’t want to lose it by taking it off, lol.
