I would not go thinner. No matter what your jeweler says, you don’t want to go thinner with pave; you’ll risk the stuctural integrity.  (There’s a bunch of educational threads about that very topic over at Pricescope).

I wonder if the issue is you don’t like the way the pave feels rubbing against your fingers? In my experience, it simply bothers some women to the point that they are more comfortable with plain/smooth bands.

I definitely wouldn’t go thinner. It looks perfect the way it is. In no way does the band look ” too thick” from a distance. Go any thinner and you will have increased concern about the integrity of the band and added maintenance of the smaller stones with those teeny tiny claws. Keep in mind too, the smaller the pave stones, the less sparkle. It just wouldn’t looks as good.

Lovely ring. It’s balanced very well.

I think it looks beautiful. If there is a cost to change it I wouldn’t do anything for a year. I got a custom made ring, got all crazy that it wasn’t perfect and tried to change it. It never ends.  Just live with it for 6-12 months, I’m sure you will just forget about the little details and love your ring.
