Can I see your rings with band width measurements?

I have a 2.14 carat solitaire on a 2.2 mm thin band. I like it- it is thick enough where it feels solid but thin enough where the diamond takes center stage.

My e ring is 2mm and it has a bit of a knife edge like taper close to the diamond. My wedding band will likely be either 2 or 2.5mm either plain or diamonds (haven’t decided yet). My size is 4.5 (the ering is 4 but will need to be sized up to accomodate the extra width of the wedding band) and the diamond is a 1.0ct

My band is a 2.4mm. I too had a difficult time choosing and was wavering back and forth. After trying on so many rings I knew I wanted somewhere between 2.2 and 2.5. So I ended up with a 2.4 mm. The last pic has a cubic zirconia pave setting which is 2.0 mm I bought to wear for traveling. Hope this helps. I’m also an athlete and didn’t want a whisper thin band for fear I’d warp or break it. I’m a size 3.5 – 4 ring and my diamond is a 1.25.

So I spoke with my jeweler yesterday and decided to go ahead with a custom reset.  EEEE!!  I dropped my ring off already and have spoken to him a few times to go over details and he’s sent a few drafts to me after I sent him photos of what I would like.  I decided to go with a wider band and cathedral setting.  Not being able to have my wedding band sit flush against my ER because it was so low set drove me nuts. LOL. And I’ve always loved the look of a slightly wider band.  I can’t wait to see what it looks like after!

3mm band. Size 4.5 finger. I love the thickness and sturdiness.

My band is 2 mm. I think it’s ideal–not too thin, not too thick. Also, keep in mind that the thicker the band/the more you stack rings, the tighter the fit will be.

@teainthemountains:  Mine are a 1.8 mm and a 3 mm. I love them. Could have gone even thicker on the wedding band probably!

My setting has a 2mm domed band. I wouldn’t ever go thicker than this, and I like that it still has a dainty look while being nice and sturdy. 

If I got a smaller center stone I might entertain a 1.8mm band. I would be more worried about bending it though ๐Ÿ˜–

Both these bands are 3 mm. (The e ring was half a size too small in this pic so that’s why it might look funny.) I love the thickness. I feel like it looks substantial and sparkly. It shrinks my already-small center stone even smaller so that’s the only downfall. But I wouldn’t change it.

Mine is 1.5 and I’d go thinner if I didn’t worry about damage! But I love it to bits still! ๐Ÿ˜
