My wedding ring is 1.6 micro pave, I don’t baby it at all. I lift weights in it at the gym, traveled with it over the summer, scrambled up some rocks on a hike. Been wearing it since February with no problems at all. I don’t wear it to bed, because the one time I did a strand of fibre from from the sheets got stuck in a prong.

Mine tapers veery thin toward the basket 

 But the band is tall. It’s very sturdy. And thicker on the palm. I.love it. It’s very delicate but very strong and secure. I never take it off, it’s very comfortable.

My band is very thin where it meets the centre stone (1.2mm) but it tapers out to 1.6mm at the base. It’s also fairly tall so it has some extra structure by virtue of that.

1.5mm micropavé here, I don’t baby the band as much as I baby my stone (natural peach sapphire that was near impossible to find in the color I wanted). The thing that makes me nervous about your band is how thin it is at the base. Depending on cost of thickening it up I would leave it as is and just take it off when lifting weights or doing other manual labor.

I would be concerned about how thin it is on the palm side. Rings really CAN bend or break when they’re that light. If you really love that thin-band look, you could leave it as is around the stone but have the shank beefed up on the underside.

I babied my 1.5mm and it bent when I was carrying in groceries. Within like 6mos of me putting it on my finger. I didn’t want to keep worrying about it, so the jeweler changed the back half of the shank. Basically I still have 1.5mm on the front of the ring, where you can see it, but it expands to 2mm under my finger so it won’t bend again. Best of both worlds! You will love it and it will feel so much more secure!
