So, the wedding band I am thinking of getting is the one below (not my hand, seller’s photo) and it is 5mm wide, which I think is great because the point of this ring is that you’re able to see the awesome design! However, I’m wondering whether it will look too chunky on my size 4 finger? That said, I will almost certainly wear this alone, with my e-ring on the right hand. However I do like stacking rings…will the width of this band limit the possibilities with stacking rings?
ALSO, if you have a similar sized finger and band width, please post pics so I can get an idea of the proportion! Thanks in advance!
Should I get the 3 mm version?

@MrsSnowMountain: I would try on a 5mm band just at a local store to get an idea about how it would look and feel. And what is your style like? I’m dainty all the way, and I like jewelry that doesn’t really get in the way with what I do at work, so I vote 3mm. But that’s MY style! It would be more of a comfort concern for me!

@MrsSnowMountain: I would go with the 3mm. It just seems to suit your band better

I originally wanted a 5mm wedding band, but found it to be too thick on my 4.75 finger. Especially when worn with my ering. I ended up going with a 2.2mm wedding band.

I would pick the 5mm, and I have a size 4.5 finger. Depends on how long your fingers are, I guess?

Okay, this might be mildly helpful. Both of my rings together are about 5mm. (I flipped them so you could get an idea) My engagment ring is 3 (white gold) and wedding band is 2. My ring size is 5. I feel like I could comfortably wear another ring on the same finger if I wanted to.

Thank you so much for the helpful responses!
I think I may be leaning towards going with the 3mm. My fingers are ridiculously long and spindly, but I love to stack, lol.
And yet, I can’t get over how much better the pattern looks and stands out on a wider ring! I’ll have to try some on, as you ladies say. But i still won’t see the pattern! Sighhh internet shopping has its downfalls.

I’m one of the few who thinks the 5mm looks better. I think the pattern on the band is so gorgeous, and with the thinner width the beauty of the pattern is totally lost. If it were me, I’d go with the 5mm or a different ring entirely. Hope you can settle on a decision you’re happy with!

I think it you have long fingers, you should be all set! I like the thick, “chunky” look so I would go with the 5mm and I have short, little size 6 stubby fingers! I think if you are comfortable with it, you can rock the 5mm!

Jijitattoo and TheMrs2013, thanks for giving me more to think about! I think maybe it’s true that I could pull off a wider style… here’s a pic of my hand – wearing another ring, sorry, only convenient pic atm.
So long and spindly, right? Haha.
Silly me, here is a pic of a 4mm ring on my hand. It looks good as long as I’m not stacking rings, i guess.

are you stacking it with another ring at all?
If not, I think 5mm is no problem, and it really shows off the pattern better.

That is such a gorgeous band! I prefer the look of the 5mm band because you can see more of the pattern. However, I am not one to like a lot of real estate on my fingers so I would probably go with the 3mm just for comfort. For me, I don’t like the feeling of a lot of ring on the bottom (palm) side of my finger; for some reason it just bothers me.
You may want to buy a cheap tungsten or titanium or sterling silver 5mm band off of overstock and see how you feel wearing a wider band.

country chic That’s a really good point about the underside! I like this style because it’s only 1mm thick, but I’ll definitely have to re-consider some other styles I’ve been looking at which are domed.

Beautiful band!Very unique!I think that the pattern gets lost in the 3mm band.By the way, I adore your pearl ring.
