    @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!

    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.

    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!

    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.
