I wear a size 6 wedding band and my custom e-ring that is being made will be a 6.25. I have really long fingers, and feel like 3mm is the sweet spot for me.  Thinner bands just seemed to get lost on my hand. And I like the substantial feel of the 3mm.  No pics of my ering yet.  But here is my wedding band. Engraved rose gold.

desertgypsy :  Omg. When I skimmed this, I thought that was the OP rudely posting that your band was huge, not you talking about the image. I just about LOST my mind. Ha! 

 

OP – keep in mind durability, style and material, not just appearances! You’ll be wearing this ring forever! My jeweler wont even make a band under 2mm, even in platinum, unless you sign away your rights to a warranty. I have a 2.5mm band on a 5.5 finger and I still have stacking room, and peace of mind that my ring isn’t overly fragile.

dollmann :  My e-ring and wedding band are currently being made.  I went with a 2mm band on both.  I know that the  very delicate bands are super popular right now and they really show off the stone, but for practical everyday wear, I just couldnt see going with anything less than 2mm.

My wedding band is 3mm and engagement ring and eternity band are both 2mm I’m a size 6.5 finger. I wanted a slightly thicker wedding band for my wedding band for durability

I loved my ering (1.8mm) on its own. Sometimes when I got out for a quick errand I wear it by itself because I miss it! But I also love my stack. It’s a little blingy so most days I usually wear 1 wedding band with the ering.

My ring is a size 7, but I’m resizing it to a 6.5. Most of the time it fits fine with some room, but sometimes its so big it could fall off if I’m not paying attention. My band is 1.8 mm at the widest point and I think it looks great.
