@MissTX: I think the most important thing when you are pairing a band with an engagement ring is not the width but the depth of the band–meaning, how far the metal extends out from your finger, if that makes any sense.

IMO rings of different widths can look great if they both sit the same distance from the finger. But even rings of the same widths can look mismatched if one is very flat and the other is much more rounded.

Here’s an example of what I mean–these rings have very different widths but they look great together because they have the same depth; the outside edges of the rings align perfectly:

Whereas this set doesn’t work as well IMO even though the widths are similar, because the wedding band protrudes farther than the engagement ring:

2.5 mm band on size 5.5  wedding band will hopefully be my mother’s old band if we can get it resized–it will be a round, yellow gold 1.5 mm band.
