    Maybe visit a couple of jewelers and try it on with some of the wedding ring styles you like– that tiny change in the width may make a difference in how you like the look of the engagement ring/wedding ring combo.

    The size difference isn’t incredible, but I also favor the thin, delicate bands. It bother you, plus, if he requested a 2mm band and the jeweler didn’t deliver, I’d just have the jeweler change it out so you’ll be happy with it.

    How long would it take to get the new band? Would the jeweler have to recreate it, or would it just be a simple switch? If it would only take a day or so to pop out the diamond and set it in a new band, I’d definitely have it done. If it would be weeks of waiting for the new band… maybe not.

    While I do love the look of the more delicate, thin band, I think the 2.4 still looks lovely.  I know when my ring was being made, I requested the band to be "as thin as possible" and what I really wanted couldn’t be done because the band/prongs have to be able to sufficiently support the diamond.

    I think your ring is so pretty.

    Your ring is gorgeous. However, I have a larger right hand ring and it’s on a pretty slim band. The problem with this is that it tends to fall to the side more. It almost never sits in the center of my finger. It’s ALWAYS falling depending on whether my fingers are a little swollen due to heat or if they’re cold. It’s a big pain

    This is why i wanted a thick engagement ring band. I think if you went with the really thin band it might slip a little bit. The weight of the diamond just tips it over! Also, i have an amethyst that was on a really thin delicate band–one of my favorite things about it, and it CRACKED because it was SOOOOO thin. The jeweler had to reshank it and was telling me how thicker bands are better for everyday jewelry.

    Some things to consider. I think your ring looks great as it is set though! Gorgeous diamond =]

    Your ring is beautiful.  As for yout sitting flush question, mine sit flush.  My e-ring actually has a little groove cut out one one side that a prong from the wedding band fits into.  It keeps them together and straight since the iamonds on each match up and look funny when they are off…

    Mine do not sit flush. It just was not possible becasue they were not made as a little set. But, ti sounds like the sides of the prong of your ring head where your diamond sits would knock against your wedding band. It doesn’t sound good…it’ll tilt your wedding band. Since you have a simple solitaire, you probably want it to sit flush or it may be uncomfortable

    Regarding your Engagement Ring – I think the ring looks great just as is.  But I understand that you want your Engagement Ring EXACTLY how you want it because you will be looking at it FOREVER!  However, the points that your jeweler (and previous posters) have made about the amount of gold necessary to hold your diamond safely, are good points!!

    Regarding a wedding band sitting flush.  If you have a problem with your wedding band sitting flush, all you have to do is get a wedding band custom made to shape around your Engagement Ring.  You should not have to modify your Engagement Ring at all!  My friend had your exact ring and ran into the problem of wanting her band to fit snugly against her Engagement Ring flushly.  So, she simply had a wedding band made to fit right around her Engagement Ring.  It is perfect AND the best part is, it also supports the solitaire so it avoids the ring spinning thing!

    I would definitely change it! It is absolutely beautiful, and maybe it is my personal taste skewing my view, but I think the thinner rings are much more feminine. I also think you will always regret it if you don’t take care of it -you knew what you wanted all along, and the jeweler should have respected it! Good luck 🙂
