Let me start by sharing what I hope to get for my e-ring: 2 carat/8mm Moissanite, Round Brilliant solitaire with white gold/thin band. The reason I want a thin band is because when my FH and I went to check out rings and peruse the solitaires, carat sizes, etc, the jeweler put a 2 ct diamond on a thin gold band, believe it was 1.9 mm in width, and it looked stunning. But since my FH will be purchasing my ring from Moissanite Co online, I can’t be absolutely sure what i am getting, until its too late, and I’m worried 1.9 is abnormally thin for an e-ring, so i want to ask you all, especially those of you who share my love of a dainty band with a large rock!
Also does anyone have any bad experiences with a 1.9 mm band?

Well i dont know much about the size of your moissy but I have a 1.8 mm band and I love it I wanted thin and I havent had any issues with it yet (KNOCK ON WOOD)

I would say this is too thin for the long term… but that is for me. I tend to be harsh on my jewels, even though I do try to keep them shiny!
This ring is a lifetime symbol, I think maybe a couple of mm thicker might allow you to keep that rock on the finger far longer…

I love a thin band, we plan on going with something very similar! Definitely no thicker than 2.2. I think the only difference is a thinner band with a big rock may spin more than a thicker band, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take 😉

I love that look too! I think it will be fine. I’ve heard good things about the customer service at that site so just shoot them an email to make sure you’re getting the right size!

I think that is great width! I LOVE thin bands.
My e-ring is going to be a 3 carat moissanite in a pave & halo setting & the shank will be 1.95mm. It is a great width, especially for a 2 carat solitaire because it is more secure than a pave setting.
But I would like to advise you to go with platinum or palladium for your metal because gold wears away, and is lost over time, where as platinum or palladium isnt, & it can be repolished to former glory. Platinum is a forever metal, gold is not heirloom quality because it becomes lost over the years from wear. This especially becomes an issue with thin shanks because they can snap and wear significantly.

I don’t see why not. I think it would look great!

My ring is 2mm (knife edge) with a 1.5ct moissy and I love it! I like the look of a thin band with a big stone. It looks gorgeous and I haven’t had any issues or anything (I have been engaged and wearing it everyday for about 5 months).

Oh and request a sizer they send you a code to get a % off your ring!

Thanks bees! I wasn’t sure if I was making the right choice but i think both my FH and I are sold on the thin band, and i will definitely look into platinum or pallidium(since Im in it for the long haul).
@MsPanda We already ordered and recieved the sizer in the mail. That was such a neat surprise for both of us! I couldn’t be more excited to buy (or my FH) from MoissaniteCo!

I have a thin band, not sure how thin, but I know its thinner than 2mm, because I just recently tried on bands. I seriously love thin bands, but maybe thats because I have small fingers. Oh and I’m not concerned about it wearing down or breaking. If it happens I’ll just get it fixed!

@Cash000 I agree. To me i think the look of a thin band will be worth any maintainance cost in the future as I also have thin fingers

I have a 1.25 carat on a 1.8mm and I love it! I’m a big fan of thin bands because my hands are kinda dainty and thick baover just don’t work for me.

My wedding ring is 2mm and here is my E ring next to it, and its quite a bit less than 2mm. it tapers on the front shoulders, and is actuallly 2mm at the back of it.
I find the E ring to be very comfortable and i like the look of the thinner band.

My engagement ring is vintage with a band slightly under 1.5mm that tapers near the stone and it has survived over 60 years so far without any significant damage. My stone is only about 1.24ct, so a fair bit smaller but still not exactly minute.
It’s also a lot thinner vertically than most modern bands so my fingers can sit tight together.
