Try as I might, I can never find a ring to suit me. I think the problem is that wide bands look weird on my fingers, so i’m looking for rings with a very thin band. Can any of you lovely ladies advise me or better yet, show me yours?
So far my best option seems to be this:
It’s only 2mm, so with the matching 2mm wedding band it’s only 4mm in total! But I was kinda hoping for a 6 prong though… what do you all think?

I have a 1.5mm band that I love. I have really short, kid fingers so, I really wanted a thin band. If you have kid hands like me, I’d say go as thin as possible.. 2mm should be perfect!

My e-ring is thin. It’s about 1-1.5 mm wide. It’s a solitare. Did you try looking in the stores.
My wedding ring is also about the same.
Sorry about the pictures. It’s huge.
Oh, the pictures don’t show it but both rings are about 1-1.5mm wide around my finger.

Here is what you orignally picked but with six prongs. Blue nile is awesome!

Thanks so much ladies! Wow that second pic is pretty much exactly what i’m looking for (but white gold with a round stone).
I kinda had my heart set on MoissaniteCo.com but they dont seem to do any thin bands other than the one I posted (correct me if im wrong tho!)

there are tons of solitaires out there that have thin bands. try going to a mall and looking around. you can always buy just the setting and then get the loose stone at moissaniteco (if it’s specifically moissanite that you wanted).
one thing that I’ve noticed is that rings usually appear different in their photos than they do in real life. I recently ordered a silver ring from overstock.com that seemed to to be fairly chunky. it was super delicate in real life. I also ordered a ring that looked really delicate but was way too chunky in real life. it’s pretty hard to shop online, so be prepared – know their return policy before you order!
one thing you can also try if you order a ring online, be sure to email them beforehand and ask how thick the band is.

@Claire_2010: Moissaniteco.com’s owners, Jera & Mike, often do custom designs! You can simply ask them to do that design in a six prong and & 1.5mm band :] They will likely agree.

My ring is from James Allen and its 1.9mm. They also make a set that have both the setting and band as 1.6-1.7mm. I don’t know how you feel about pave settings but I think these are lovely!

mine is very thin as well (2mm), but it’s so dainty and I love it!

Mine’s also thin, but with a twist. I have fairly small fingers (4.75), and FI had a hell of a time finding a ring with a twisted band that wasn’t too wide. Obviously the twist adds width, but it’s really delicate, and I think each band is definitely narrower than 2 mm. At any rate, I think 2 mm each will be fine, as long as your fingers aren’t really really tiny.

The band on my engagement ring is pretty thin (2mm like MsYellowJackets ring above) but I am hoping to find something even thinner for my wedding band. I have had the most luck on places like etsy.

@SerenaSF: I love that band!! Had my wedding set not been made together, I that would be a close contender!

2mm is TINY! Check it out on a ruler! The band on my ering is 1.3!
The artist who created my ring does similar bands without stones, too, and for great prices.
This is the Etsy artist!
