i don’t have either of those, but i do have one from blue nile that is 2.0 i think, or maybe even 1.8?  I was a little nervous at first because my e-ring is a little bigger (3mm i think?) but i actually love the contrast of the bigger e-ring than wedding ring, it makes the e-ring stand out a bit more and doesn’t look as matchy/matchy, if you know what i mean.

Unfortunately, i have no pics, i’m not married yet…but I can’t wait to wear it!

also, they have a 30 day return policy, so you could always order it and see if it’s too thin in person.

@hotchocolate: I know this is later but better late than never I suppose. I had a 1.5 mm setting for my e-ring from Blue Nile. I chnaged to a 2.2mm. Let me say-there is a HUGE difference. The You are better off with the first band IMO if you want them to match.

mine is the same as the second photo, but it’s 2mm wide.  also the diamonds go a bit farther down the sides… each of my bands are 2 mm.

@Cupcake2012:  Did you immediately exchange your band?  I didn’t, but I’ve had my 1.5 mm petite cathedral micropave band resized THREE TIMES.  And now I’ve been engaged for a while but I just noticed the other day that the bottom of the ring actually feels thinner/flatter like it’s no longer a perfect circle.  Also I only have a 1.1 ct but the diamond still flops to the side all the time.  I’m pretty annoyed.  I think I’m going to take it to a local jeweler to have it inspected.  I wish I would have spoken up sooner but I honestly didn’t realize that the thin-ness of the band was the likely cause.  Curious to hear your experience with switching to a thicker band.

@Macchiato:  I did exchange the 1.5mm petite cathedral after a week or two, because as you describe, the center stone was flopping around, etc. I then got the 2.0 petite pave (non cathedral) and while thicker, was still too lightweight and thin for my taste. I now have the 2.2 nouveau in platinum and it’s MUCH better, not flopping, less spinning, etc. Im sorry to hear you are having the same problem 🙁

Cupcake2012:  So you had to pick a whole new setting then? Did it cost a lot? Mine is also very thin and I’m looking to change it. I did not know you could send it back in to Blur Nile. It’s been about 8 months since I has this ring. Do you think it is too late to change it?
