I got a 4mm wedding band, he got a 6mm ring. Our wedding is next week. His looks beautiful on him, but I feel like mine makes my fingers look kind of chunky. The woman at the jewelry store said it would be hard to engrave anything less than 4mm. Does anyone have a pic of an engraved 3mm wide ring so I can see how the words really look?

I don’t have my set yet as it is being made- but my jeweller told me 2.5-2.7mm is the minimum width for engraving. That of course depends on the particular engraving pattern you’re after- some designs may need more width. I would definitely ask elsewhere as there is likely to be someone who can work with 3mm.

Oh I didn’t realise you meant engraving words- but nevertheless I would think 3mm would be sufficient..

@sanneshine: I can’t get a good pic, but I have a 3mm (i think!?) and it’s engraved. Not sure why she said that, we had no problems. Honestly, I wouldn’t get too caught up in how visible it is because you’ll be the only one who really looks at it. Get what LOOKS good to you that you’ll love!

@sanneshine: I had a 1.5 mm band microengraved……anyway, my 3 mm rose gold band is engraved and it looks perfect!! Here’s the band.

@sanneshine: Hey! I have a 1.5 mm heirloom band that I had engraved with “Scott” by somebody who specializes in hand-engraving. It’s pretty small for sure, but I think a 3mm or less would be doable, unless you have a really long phrase.
Here’s a pic of it (hard to get a decent picture, plus my cat wanted in on the action)
For reference, here’s how skinny the band is:
