I think alot of this is going to depend on your finger size and how much space you have…  A person with a size 9 finger will likely have more space in between both knuckles… so for example, I am a 9.5 and my E- ring is a thin 2mm band, but I wear stackable bands which, when all are worn are probalby 6mm. 

What size are your fingers?

Well, I have a size 4 or 4.5 finger but my fingers are suuuuuuper long, like unnaturally long. I have a really big space between my first and second knuckles.

Normally I actually only wear 2 stacked bands, 2mm + 5mm, so about 7mm total. I prefer the delicate look. The first picture is what I normally wear.

Below is a pic of some stacked rings (not my wedding rings, just some random ones that I stacked up to see how many I could fit on there, lol.) It is 10 or 11mm total. I think it looks chunky but not unreasonably so.

I do think that 12-13mm total, as you are suggesting, would overwhelm most people’s hands.

@NellieBelly37:  I think it depends on whether the basket of your ring touches your hand or not. Will your wedding band tuck under it? Its all about your comfort level as well – sometimes thicker rings can feel tighter.

For reference, I have short fingers (its about 22mm from the base to my first knuckle) that are a size 5.5. My ering band is 2.5 mm at the thinnest point and 3.2 mm at the thickest (near the stone). The wedding band is 2.5 mm. I have a gap between the two, so maybe 7 mm real estate for both rings?

Mine are 6 mm total and I don’t think I’d want much more than that.
