Do you have a 8mm or Bigger sized stone with a 2 mm or thinner Band?

It’s not:) I have a a 10 x ~7 oval solitaire oval on a 2mm band. It’s perfect in my opinion!

I think at 2m you’ll be fine.  If you go any thinner than that, your band/shank will take a beating 🙂

Is go with 2mm, it’s still dainty without being too thin. Plus it will hold up better overtime than a thinner shank would. And since your getting a large stone, the size difference will make the band appear smaller in comparison anyway

My center stone is over 2 without halo..band is 1.8.  Thicker bands (IMO) take away from the center stone.

On mine the band is under 2mm with an 8x10mm stone plus a halo! I love it and it’s held up very well!

I’m not sure why so many bees think thin bands just fall apart  if it’s made well and you’re not aggressively hard on your ring, it will be fine. My engagement ring is 1.4 mm and my band is less than 1mm.  I get so many compliments on my set because of how thin and dainty it is. I agree with pp, a thin band enhances your center stone. 

 

Ive separated them so you can see
