    hmm i can’t vote because it’s not an option, but my fiance’s ring will be 6.5 mm. He’s got bigger hands as well so a thicker band looked better.

    FI’s ring is most likely going to be 5 mm – he hasn’t picked it out yet….  ;o)

    I am curious as well. My FI gets a scared look in his eyes everytime I utter the word shopping.

    Most of the thicker looking rings at the stores were 7mm and my fiance knew he wanted a ring that was just a little thicker.  We went to several stores and never saw any that were over 7mm.  The jeweler made him one that was 8mm.  We’ve only seen the mold so far, but it’s nice.  He wears a size 11.  He’s tall and thin, so I actually thought he’d want a thinner ring.

    I would look online to get an idea of what YOU like, which can start you guys off in one direction.  My fiance gets nervous w/ too many options, so we focused on what he wanted before we went to any stores.  He’s an artist so he actually drew it out.  Funny enough, he then forgot he had the drawing, and we found it a few weeks ago.  It looks EXACTLY like what he picked.  🙂

    I believe my husband’s is a 4 mm, although it could be 5.  We looked at both, but he has pretty narrow fingers, and he is not a big jewelry-wearing guy, so I think we went with the smaller one.

    some extra info to help make the experience quicker and less painful for him. They can usually make the ring whatever width you want, depending on the style of ring, but if it’s plainer it shouldn’t be a prob. Also they can make a ring either Polished or brushed really easily and it’s something they can do down the road if he decides he wants to change it.

    Good luck and by the way, the experience wasn’t nearly as painful for my fiance as it was for me, he could not make up his mind and it took AGES for him to decide… men.

    My guy has thin fingers and the 3mm looked better than a big chunky ring.

    Funny anecdote: we have the EXACT same wedding bands. Same size and everything!

    I think my husband’s is either a 5 or a 6.  For him, he didn’t want anything too thick, because he’s not a big jewelery guy.  I actually have a 3mm myself–I liked the thicker band with my e-ring setting.

    My Fiance is getting a 6mm.  He has pretty average to a lil bigger hands I would say.  The jewelry we went to says that 95% of men get that size ring.

    My fiancee is getting a 3 mm, but then again, she is also female.  😉

    My guy has a 9mm. THe jeweler asked if he was a big guy, but no, he just likes thicker rings. I like that it’s super obvious in your face that he’s taken, LOL.
