Just off the top of my head, shank is too thin and gold weight is extremely light because of it. This ring would not hold up to daily wear in my opinion. 

Looking at it again, is it just the band you’re having made? If so, do you have a CAD from your engagement ring? That would really help determine good proportions.

1.2 mm is pretty thin. I would at least go to 1.5-1.7 mm.

This is a beautiful combination! Are you planning on getting them soldered together? The only thing that would concern me, if you weren’t, is the exposed tip of the marquise. Those tips are very fragile, and it looks like it will be rubbing against a prong of your engagement ring which will very quickly wear the prong down. If you solder them though, it shouldn’t be a problem! ๐Ÿ™‚ can’t wait to see them together!

My wedding ring was (I’m divorced) 1.4 mm with a 1.5 centre and my band was 1.1. It definitely held up and I had zero issues. My finger size is 4.75

I would just match up the size of the band to what you engagement ring is.  I personally think what you have is too thin. It is hard to compare this to someone else’s ring that held up because you don’t know how their particular ring was made.  I had a quality ring that was as thin as 1.1 on the bottom and never had a problem. I had one with 1.6 mm at the bottom and completely deformed it after 3 months. It is hard to know what process the etsy jeweler is using.  There are some recommended norm’s though so bands no thinner then 1.5-1.8 mm are good guidelines to follow.

moissyrn :  will they charge for a wax mold? maybe that would give you an idea of how it’ll look in real life
