Mine is 2mm band, ring finger size 5.25, and a 1ct equivalent center stone. LOVE how thin the band is!

It’s all a matter of personal taste, but I think if you prefer the look of a thin band then 2.5mm may be nearing the line of being too thick. Only way to know for sure is to try some rings on!

I find my ering band to be nice and thin, it is 2mm and I have a 1.3 carat round and a halo… you will probably feel like the 2.5mm could be starting ti feel thicker than you want.

nurse92 :  my ring size is 4.5 and my wedding band is 2.5mm and i feel like it’s really narrow, and my fingers are not particularly long or anything

My fingers are long, but not particularly big, and I have three rings which are 2.5mm each. I tried thin and thick settings on, and I preferred thicker. They feel sturdier to me.

Mine is a 1.7 ct cushion (7mm) on a 2mm pave, size 5.25

I love the contrast of the big whopping diamond sitting up on that thin band. I say 2.5mm is too thick (IMHO)

I have a 1.3 carat diamond on a 2 mm band. I have a 4.25/.5 finger and my fingers are very skinny looking. I personally think the band is a little thick but was advised not to go smaller because of the stone size. Over a carat and a half I was advised to stay with a 2mm band. I’ll include a picture.

All the pictures of the other 2mm bands are making me question if my band is actually 2mm (actually 2.1 is exactly what it was listed as). I don’t know if it’s just an illusion from different hand/stone sizes, but mine seems thinner than the other 2mms…

It totally depends on what you like! Here is mine for ref – I like it thinner, so I had them shave off the sides and now the band is about 1.5mm which I love (bottom image). I didn’t measure it before, but I’d guess it was almost or at 2mm. I have a 1.3 carat diamond in the center and they had no concerns about support or anything like that.
