Ladies I need help! I feel like my rings are too wide on my short finger. I’m not sure what my E-Ring’s band width is, but I’m thinking of having it thinned down to 2mm…what do you think?! Or should I just leave it how it is?? :/

HazelElise: It is quite thick. Thicker than I would like, so if it were me I would get it thinned down a bit.

Firat of all, that is some gorgeous bling you’ve got there! Yummy. That said, I had a thick band ering and I did reset into a thinner one so I completely understand. And I think it will make your center pop!

HazelElise: I have a 2mm and I really like it and prefer the thinner band and I think it’d make your center stone look bigger. It is beautiful though.
However, I can’t relate the thickness to the shortness of your finger, as you describe, because in the picture your fingers are bent…

If the band is thinned, will the diamond bands sit flush with it? If there isn’t room under the basket for the bands, then it will do little good to thin the band as the rings will take up about the same amount of real estate on your finger as before. Additionally, some rings can be thinned without issue while others cannot, so I’d ask your jeweler before getting attached to the idea. For the sake of structural integrity, you may want to just put the stone in a new setting.

I would definitely put it on a thinner band, but it might be better just to pick a new setting since you’re going to have to change basically everything. maybe you can trade in the metal or find something else to put in this one!

I think it’d look better if you removed the top band. That should look pretty good in the short time. Otherwise yes, I think it would look good if you got a new setting.

HazelElise: Wow! Gorgeous, gorgeous set! Your set, overall, is pretty thick. But I like a thicker band/set … so I find it very pretty. I think it looks good on your hand, from what I can tell. It might be easier to see details regarding thickness relative to the length of your finger if your fingers weren’t bent in the picture.
At the same time, I think it would also be beautiful if you got the band of your ERing thinned down a little bit. I truly don’t think you can go wrong, no matter what you decide to do. It will be beautiful either way.
I think the bottom line is whether the set is comfortable for you. If it’s comfortable like it is, I don’t think leaving it alone is a bad idea. If it is uncomfortable for you, then you should definitely thin the band.
(I know. I was no help at all. >.O)

Very pretty ring! I don’t think it looks bad, but if you want it thinner, why not? It will fit differently though, and probably feel looser.

HazelElise: That’s a beautiful set and I would definitely keep it and go for a thinner band, but that’s just me! Do you mind sharing the specs on your wedding bands?
