We just chose our wedding bands and are going back tomorrow to order them. Our budget allowed for my FI to get the band he liked in up to 5 grams. (I’m not sure if grams are used in the United States when talking about rings??)
I was thinking of chipping in a little extra and surprising him with 6 grams because I know he’d like it thicker. But I’m wondering if the difference between 5 and 6 grams is noticeable? I have no perception whatsoever when it comes to things like this!
Thanks in advance!

@ana77: Ok. grams are a measurement of mass, and in the US we usually talk about the width of the rings, in milimeters. So I have no idea how thick 5 grams is or how thick 6 grams is. And I think it would depend on his finger size. Sorry it might be too late since you said you are ordering them today and I’m not really much help. Maybe someone else will know though.

My first e-ring was over well 6 grams in gold. It was heavy for me so I exchanged it for a small swirly band. I have sensitive fingers. 6 grams is more valuable!!

I don’t know that it would make a significant difference, but if he likes a bit of “heft” it might be worth it.

Thanks, everyone! I think he would like a bit of heft, so I’ll go ahead and do it. (We didn’t order on Friday as planned, probably Monday!)
I was also thinking that, mathematically, 6 grams is 20% more than 5 grams. So I guess that should give me some sort of an idea 😉
