Not the exact measurements you’re looking for but I will post for reference.

Engagement Ring is 2mm at its widest and tapers to 1.5 near the diamond.

Wedding band is 2.5mm

My bands are 2.7mm each and where shaved down to a sharp knife edge. My jewler definitely does not recommend any width below 2mm:

My engagement ring is 1.8mm and my wedding band is 2mm. I opted for different style bands!

mishastarlene :  I changed my custom ring from 1.5mm to 1.7mm for a little more strength, because I also kept hearing that anything under 2mm would bend easily and isn’t recommended. I freaked out a bit and brought it up to my jeweler, but they said that as long as you’re careful and don’t wear your ring while doing heavy work with your hands, you should be fine. Even though 1.7mm is still not recommended, it’s the thickest I was willing to go because I like the dainty look much more. In fact, I actually kind of regret going to 1.7mm now and wish I stuck to 1.5mm. I haven’t received it yet, so hopefully it didn’t make a big difference in width!.
