I’m already married, but I’m thinking about getting a nice plain band to wear with my wedding ring (which looks like an engagement ring). Maybe a 2mm or 2.5mm plain white gold band? I’ve tried 2mm bands at brick and mortar stores, but I was iffy about them. I felt they were a teeny bit too narrow. I couldn’t find a 2.5mm band to try, though, so I’d like to see some pictures on real brides (and married ladies)!
Also, I tried a 2mm band at another store, and it felt too thin height-wise. If it’s too thin, I think it ends up feeling a little cheap for my taste. I like some substance in my ring. Do you laides know how tall your bands are? If it makes a difference, I’m looking at comfort fit bands.
So, please share a picture of your plain wedding bands! It will be immensely helpful if you also share your ring size, width of the band, and height of the band.

Adding a picture of my ring on 4.75 finger for reference :

I don’t know the actual ring stats, but I’m a size 5. The band is a bit larger on me but it is vintage and I didn’t want to resize it.

I bought a plain 2mm band at a great steal, but it didn’t have enough substance. So I bought a 2.5 mm heavy comfort fit one, and I love it! Now I will use the thin band as a placeholder if I don’t want to wear my real set, and I will use the heavy band for my wedding ring.

I have a modest .5 ct ring and a plain band, which is exactly what I told DH I wanted when we got engaged! We travel a lot, and I’d rather have rings I can wear comfortably all the time than have something I have to take off in certain places/situations. I love how clean and classic it is. I think I’m a size 6. I’m actually not a fan of the band’s width–would have gone thinner if it wasn’t my jeweller BIL making it for me (he just made it as a gift and didn’t really ask!). I would have preferred it to match the ring band’s width.
Here’s my set:

I have a 2mm plain 14k band that I wear around while doing chores, gardening or anything outdoorsy. I’m a size 6 finger. It is a fairly flat style band, but still has some weight to it, which I like.

@AlexisB: Ring size 5, wedding ring is 3 mm (which I highly recommend! I want people to SEE it, lol). Good luck!

@honeybee33: LOVE your nails in the second picture! Is that glitter gel?

Here is pic of my set (including my plain band). I secretly wanted some diamonds on the band…but I’m glad I didn’t go that way. I think it would have detracted from the center stone. I think the plain band also “beefs” up the look…which I like.

Beautiful rings! I would love to have an antique ring, but I don’t think it will go with my modern-looking ring. I did see a very tempting vintage ring on ebay, though. It had initials and wedding date engraved. I would love to have a sentimental ring like that that belonged to my grandmother, or something.
Wow! Thank you. That’s very helpful! I must say I like the 2.5mm band better on you for sure. You wouldn’t know the height or weight of your new band by any chance?
I also love the clean, classic look. I’m kind of digging your mismatched widths personally, though!
Your band looks like a good width for you. Maybe the flat shape makes it appear wider than domed shape. I want a plain band for the same purpose as well!
I agree 3mm is a great width on its own! When I tried it with my ring, though, it kind of overwhelmed it. Your band does make it very tempting.
Yes, I personally like the look of plain band myself. I also love the symbolism of unending smooth ring! Your set looke great. 🙂
These pictures are so helpful! Please keep them coming. 🙂

my ring with a 2mm plain band (size 6):
I think the 2mm width looks best with my ring, but a little twerpy on its own. I have a 4mm plain band that looks good on its own but I wouldn’t wear it with another ring. My fingers shrank and the 4mm band’s not sizable, so now I have a $5 cheapo steel 3mm band that is very comfortable, and I think it’s a nice width for both standalone and wearing with an ering. I will say that the 2mm width looked better than 3mm with my ering.

My D profile wedding ring used to be 2mm but is now 1.9 due to 26 years of wear. My knife edge diamond ring is 2mm narrowing down to 1.9mm near the diamond.

Love your engagement ring! Such a gorgeous shade of blue.
I didn’t know rings became narrower as they got older. Seeing these pictures made me realize 2mm is probably too thin on its own. They look great with engagement rings, though. Hmm….

@abirdword: I just wanted to say that I’ve seen your set before and I absolutely love it.
