spiffanee:  The pic you posted is so pretty! I wear a size 8 (usually keep my rings sized to 8.5), so I kind of understand how you feel looking around the ring boards on WB. Where most people get ring envy, I get “finger envy” — LOL! I do have a picture of my original engagement ring, although I am not sure it counts as “dainty”, because it has side stones on it. Overall, it’s a smaller setting, though. It’s about .75-1 TCW, with the center stone being around .5. I’ll post a pic, just in case it might help:

The wedding band in this picture is 2.5 mm wide, so it’s not all that thick, either.

In all honesty, my best advice to you would be to go and attempt to try on rings with the type of thin band you like, if you haven’t already. (I say “attempt”, because I know it can be pretty hard really to try on rings when you wear above a size 6 or 7, based on my own experience.) It’s really hard to know what you’ll like best on your finger until you actually see it on your finger.

A girl with a “larger” ring size can definitely wear thinner, “daintier” bands! It all just boils down to what you love the most and what you feel looks best on you. If that’s a smaller stone with a dainty band, you will look down and feel happy each time you see your ring — because it’ll be perfect for you, no matter what!

Sorry this reply ended up being so long. >.O

I think a 2mm band perhaps tapered is perfect for a dainty setting and highlights the stone. My band is 2.1mm with a slight taper and find it to be very dainty on my size 6 finger

Part of it also depends on the size of the stone, as a larger stone will make a less narrow band look smaller, while a smaller stone would make the same sized band look thicker. Mine has a 2.5 mm band, which sounded like it would be too thick, but it actually turned out to be perfect for my taste. My finger is a size 7.

spiffanee:  Try not to worry about it too much! (Easier said than done, I know.) When you get your ring … and it is YOURS and no one else’s … and it comes from the one you love … it will look perfect. And it will look beautiful and perfect on you.

I remember when DH and I were getting engaged, I was so excited to go ring shopping. I couldn’t wait! It had never occurred to me before that my ring size was “large”. It was just my ring size. I really hadn’t ever thought about it, and I didn’t think my fingers looked particularly large or anything like that. I remember feeling so sad and disappointed when I couldn’t get any of the rings in the stores onto my fingers. It was a horrible feeling. I didn’t even want to continue shopping at all. But (!!), when my actual ring was ready in the correct size, and my DH put it onto my finger, all the happiness and excitement came right back. It was totally perfect to me and for me.

My ring size was more like a 9 in this picture. I never wanted something too big because that’s just not me. Honestly, I never even considered the thought that maybe my bigger finger needed a bigger ring on it!

My band is a little thicker because of the side stones, but it’s only 0.5 TCW.

When I went shopping, I just tried rings on my pinky finger. It at least gives you an idea of how it looks on your hand!

spiffanee:  I have a 1.8 mm band and love it. I always think that once you have a wedding band (and possibly anniversary ring) with it, it will be perfect. So I started off with a thin e-ring 🙂

My finger is a 5.75 but even still I would say that a halo or larger centre stone would look about equivalent with a thin band.

mine is a .4ct on a 2mm band. I initially wanted a thinner band, but I think the 2mm balances about right.

spiffanee:  it’s a RB set in a 4 prong setting with tapered baguettes.
