A narrower setting will make your stone look bigger- 2.5 will be great! I’m definitely a fan of thin shanks, I’m looking at wedding bands of 1.8-2.0.

i would have picked the narrower band too.  it does make your stone look bigger.

The Tiffany Setting should be the same on all diamond sizes… I think they are @ 2.6mm at the top, narrowing to 2 at the bottom.. But replicas range from [email protected] top to 2 on bottom.. So you are right in that range.  I think 2.5mm will be great!

For the size of your stone, I think that is perfect and you won’t be sorry!

Mine is 2mm and I dont think it’s too narrow at all.  Dont forget it’ll basically double too once you add a wedding band if you get the matching one.

My shank is 1.8mm and you really should not go any smaller than that because the ring may become instable.  I think 2.5 will look great with your ring and still make it strong enough.

I don’t think it will look flimsy at all. I have a narrow band (2mm) and generally preferred thinner bands when shopping – I think it looks dainty and delicate, not flimsy!

@ECH258:  I think 2.5mm is perfect!  My set is 2.5mm (wedding band is a tiny bit wider for some reason but pretty close to 2.5mm) and I think it’s the perfect width.  It definitely doesn’t look flimsy at all.  My center diamond is .61 carats just for reference.

2.5 mm is definitely fine! It will not look flimsy or cheap at all.  You can measure and cut a strip of paper that is 2.5 mm and see for yourself.

My ring is 2 mm and I have LOVED it. Doesn’t look flimsy, just very delicate and beautiful. 🙂

The jewelers did let us know that if any part of the ring is less than 2 mm, they recommend that the e-ring and band be sautered together to increase durability over time.

I think a thinner band def would be better with your ring!
