    That’s pretty thin! Mine’s 2.5mm. I probably wouldn’t go under 1.5 but I’ve never seen one that thin so it’s hard to really say.

    I would go for the 1.5mm band. A 0.7 band would be so thin that you probably wouldn’t even be able to decipher the design because it would all blend together.

    For reference, each of these are just under 2mm

    I find this post confusing because I assume with the pattern of those rings you mean the width will be 5.5mm and the height will be 0.7mm, not the other way around. I can’t see any jeweller fitting that pattern onto a ring 0.7m thin :p Either way I think 0.7mm is too low / too narrow.

    Ah! Are you talking about the DEPTH!? i.e. how much ring there is side-to-side, sticking into your other fingers?

    The 5.5mm being how wide the ring is? Because I voted based on a width of .7mm which is tiny tiny tiny, I’m sorry to have skewed your votes.

    A typical ‘light’ depth is around 1.3mm. I think the best solution would be for yours to be the .7mm, and your FI’s to be the 1.5, I can’t imagine many men wanting a ring so thin as .7mm.

    If you are worried about it bending out of shape, get the larger as it is still relatively ‘light’ depth.

    I’m not too sure about it really, I’m not exactly an expert! If your jeweller makes them in .7mm, do they offer a warranty? I feel like they wouldn’t sell them unless it ‘worked’!

    I’ve personally not seen a ring depth of less than 1mm. I think you need to ask some questions and see if you can find any reviews. And I think for your FI you should get the 1.5mm.

    At the jewellers we’re probably going to end up using:

    Light is 1.3 mm
    Medium is 1.7 mm
    Heavy is 2.1 mm

    I would get the 1.5 mm as even then it is still quite thin so won’t appear too bulky.

    I think it should be fine, but may depend on how hard you and your FI are on your jewelry.

    I would choose the 1.5mm thickness, for sure.

    English is my first language and I had no idea what that was called. I was trying to describe the exact measurement to several Etsy sellers because I wanted a 1.0mm deep ring for him, and no one understood what I was saying (even with long descriptions and pictures!) except for the guy we ended up purchasing from. We ended up just calling it a 1.0mm thinwall ring (it’s titanium).

    But yes, go with the 1.5. <1mm is verrrrry thin, and will bend very easily in white gold.

    I think for something like a wedding ring you should go thickerIto know the additional expense isn’t fun but having something bulit to last is important.
