Id say go for the wider one. Mine is pretty wide and I LOVE it. If she has a 8 to 8.5 size finger it would give great finger coverage.

@uncltredpearl:  I LOVE the first one, but it’s similar to my engagement ring. It’s so pretty. This is how it looks on my finger which is a size 5.5 (but a size 6 ring)

I’d say go with the wide one. My e-ring is a solitaire, and the band measures almost 4mm wide, and it looks just fine on my size 7.25 finger.

Beautiful choices, BTW. Oh, and a ruby?! Oh my!

@uncltredpearl:  Go with the first one! It won’t be too wide on her size 8-8.5 finger and it’s beautiful. Plus it’s a delicate design so it will look feminine while also having great finger coverage

I think the first one is much much prettier. It is thick, but it has been splitted into two, so it won’t look bulky. I would vote a big no if it’s a solid 4.6mm band. 

 

PS. Make sure she wants a ruby on her e-ring since it’s a little non-traditional.

I think the first one is really pretty.  It doesn’t look wide but will give her a great look, especially if she wants wider.  My ering is wide but tapered at the bottom to make it easier to wear.  I am getting it cut down from 4.5mm to 3mm just because i have short stubby fingers and wear two eternity bands with it.  I love that you are putting so much thought into it.  Please show us a picture when it is all done.  It will be stunning and we would all llike to see!

The wider one. I am partial to wider bands because I have one. I had a thin band originally, but it spun all time. I think that the wider one is prettier with more details. It will not be too much for a size 8 finger…

LOVE the first one!!! My finger is a 3.5 and I have a twist design and I don’t think it’s to wide! She will love it!

I agree with the larger one!

I think a 4.6mm ring will look gorgeous and proportional on a size 8 finger!

@uncltredpearl:  That will be GORGEOUS with a ruby!!! Definitely prefer the first one. With the shank being twisted like that and not solid, it won’t give the appearance of being too wide. Here is my 4 mm band for reference. I love it. Please come back and post pictures when the ring is done!! Good luck!!

ETA: Here are my two rings on my size 4.75 finger (together they are over 6 mm so your GF will definitely be fine!).

@uncltredpearl:  That looks like my setting (without a halo) and I love it!  Here’s a pic and just for reference the ring is size 5 and the center is 2 carats… So its pretty gaudy for most people!
