Hello lovely ladies! Please post pics of rings with the size of the band’s thickness (I’m doing this for engagement rings, but feel free to include wedding bands too!!). Sharing your ring size and center stone size can help to visual porportions as well. Thank you very much!
I always thought I wanted a very thin band by my mom said she thinks I would look better in an wider band, and most of the rings I wear are thicker too. Want to see some different looks to visual and daydream haha! I’m excited about setting a 1.5 ct stone on my 6.25 finger very soon! There’s a pic of the stone on my hand, below; itt’s Amora moissanite. Any opinions on a setting are welcome! 🙂 I want something that doesn’t overwhelm the stone and I like plain solitaire settings, but I also like things that are more unique. I really thought about highly alternative settings, but also want it to be timeless and for it not to look “so 2010s” in 30 yrs! haha! Thanks again!
(ps if anyone read my earlier post where I was hestitant about committing to it, I showed the stone to my mom, dad, sister, and her fiance and they all died over it! My sister is a snob too lol. I’ve been staring at it for a couple weeks now and it is truly gorgeous. Now I can’t even think about giving it up!)

@chillinchillin: Ring size is 6. Center stone is 5mm moissanite. Both bands are 2mm.
Do you have any idea at all about your setting? What styles do you like?

@ceebree: I tried on a band with tapered side baguettes that were tinier than any other baguette side stone ring I’d ever seen, and I liked that. The band was very dainty. I also like plain settings with low profiles. I like leafy hippie nature-y rings too, but this is the style I’m afraid will eventually look dated. I like stacking rings too and was thinking I could stack a 3rd nonsentimental ring for my earthy girl look w/o the commitment haha. My general style can be jeans and a tank top, or hippie-ish (like concerts and festival wear), or more modern and sexy if the occassion calls for it. For my other rings, I typically wear really big natural stones (amber, labrodyte, etc). I have a silver band with a cut-out pattern I like that’s prob 4-5mm, and I wear it on my right middle finger and think it looks good w porportions. I just want something timeless where a good design makes the center stand out more so than a ton of details heaped on to it. At the same time, I want it to be unique but I might end up w a plain solitaire! haha! Thanks for listening!!!

I believe I have a 1-1.5mm band. I wear a size 5 with a ring snuggie, so it should be about a size 4.5 or 4.75ish.
Have you looked into bands like this:
I feel that is something timeless and gorgeous.

My ring size is 5.5 and my stone is .81 ct set on a 2mm band.

I’ve posted mine a lot recently, but i think it fits your requirements:
It’s a 1.5 ct amora moissanite, size 6.25, except my fingers are technically 5.5-5.75… they are just notorious for swelling. This setting is ENG 161 incase you want to look on moissaniteco.com and the band is 1.5mm.
I have gotten tons of compliments on the “dainty-ness” of this band, and I really do love it. i would recommend going palladium in this setting though, so that the pave diamonds don’t fall out, and that the ring itself doesnt snap given that its so thin!
Hope this helps!!

I think a stone that size would look great with a classic Tiffany setting – the kind with the low crown prongs.
Something like this:
My rings are 1.9mm ering band, 2mm wedding band. I’m a size 6. For everyday wear, at least a 2mm band will be the most low maintenance.

@chillinchillin: Just keep browing ring porn and you’ll narrow down what you want until you find the perfect one for you!

How do you ladies measure the thickness of your band? (I suck in math and figure a ruler wouldn’t be much help unless you change cm to mm?)

2mm engagement ring and 3mm wedding band

3mm ering and 3mm eternity band. 1.3 diamond and a 5.5 ring size. Both platnium if that matters!

My amora mossanite is a 1.5 carat! I wear an 8.5 though :/. My band is tapered and goes from a 4mm down to a 2.5mm at the bottom!

@Rubbs: Most rulers should have cm and little lines in between for the mm (there are 10mm in a cm, you don’t need to be good at maths!). It can be hard to measure unless your ruler is laid out right, or you knew from the specs, especially when you are looking at bands less than 2mm.

Here is my wedding band (well in 2 weeks!! ), it is 1.2 mm.

@chillinchillin: Try Gabrielle & Co. They have some BEAUTIFUL solitaire settings with just a little something interesting! I just disovered them myself, haha. My band is 2.3 mm and I think it’s just right. I wanted something somewhat substantial!
