Hi everyone, I just got engaged!!! woooo!!!!!!! So I will be picking out my ring, and I really have always wanted a round or oval halo single shank ring. I found one online that I love but I’m not sure if the 1.8mm width of the band would be dainty enough for my tastes. Please post pictures of your halo e-ring and include the band width and the center stone size! Thanks everyone!!!!!

Mine is slightly thicker in the middle and about 1.8 on the sides. I love it. It is just enough without being too thick on my small hands. Good luck in choosing!

FutureMrsGSXR: Wow LOVE your ring, and the band is gorgeous!
I think it depends on the size of the center stone. Personally, I don’t love the look of really dainty bands with center stones over a carat. I feel they look unbalanced. I think your 1.2 carat with a 1.8mm band would be perfect.
But, the size of your hands makes a difference! I have very long fingers so a super-skinny band looks strange on me. You should visit a local jeweler and try on some rings with similar specs to get an idea 🙂
Also, keep in mind that if you’re going with gold, a very dainty band is more likely to get bent out of shape.

I think it would look very dainty! Any thinner is usually not recommended because it might be too thin. I don’t have my ring yet, it’s still being made. It’s a .9 carat with a halo and a 1.8mm band and think it looks great so far. Diamd.com can give you an idea what it will look like on your finger! You can change the finger size, finger length, finger color, shank thickness, center carat, and color ring to match your finger. it’s pretty neat lol
Also, congrats! 😀

Here’s my (dirty) ring with my wedding band. The e-ring is 1.3 tcw with a 0.9 center stone and a 1.4 mm (I think) band. The wedding band is 1.5 mm. It was super impprtant to me that the bands be super tiny but it’s almost impossible to find. Idk how my Fiance found such a skinny ering but I ended up custom ordering my wedding band online because I couldn’t find anything smaller than 2.0 mm in stores. For reference I have small hands but wear a size 6.5 ring

I have no idea what the actual width of my band is, but it’s pretty thin, which is what I wanted. I have short fingers. 🙂 My wedding band is just as thin. My center stone is 1.21 carats.

dulcegozo: My band is 1.9mm and the center stone is a little over 1 carat. I really like the thickness of my band because its thin, but still feels very sturdy. My Fiance originally wanted my band to be as thin as possible, but the jeweler he was working with recommended not going any thinner for durability reasons.

My band is 1.5mm and the center stone is 1.57 carats (it also has a halo). It is dainty. My jeweler recommended that, since I wanted a very dainty ring, that I go with platinum since it is more durable than gold. It is size 4.75.
I did get my finger stuck in a door once (good thing I had the ring on, or I would have broken my finger!), and the ring did get warped as it is so thin, but it took 2 minutes at the jeweler to reshape it. I have micropave on the band and I didn’t lose any diamonds because it was made in platinum. The jeweler also said it would have still warped if it was about 2mm (I asked out of concern if I should get a wider band). I know my jeweler is only one person, but I’m always confused why people say they wouldn’t go smaller than 1.8/1.9/2.0mm since he always says it makes a minimal difference. *shrug*

1.8mm Will be very dainty. My halo has a 1.7mm plain shank and my center stone is 1.65 carats. I honestly wish I would have gone with a 2mm shank because it’s very thin.
