I wear only a 2 mm gold band (the one on top).  I love it!

I have a 2.5mm eternity band and I feel that it’s too small to wear on it’s own…but that’s just me.I’m thinking about getting a 3.5-5 mm ring.

Most men’s rings start at 5mm if that gives you any feel for how big some are. My Darling Husband has a 7mm ring and it’s pretty wide!

mine is 2mm and I think it looks really weird on its own for me. Its just personal preference. I’ve seen thin bands on other people and don’t think it looks bad on them.

I don’t think so! Love the thin bands because they feel less annoying on the finger, IMO.

I think my 2mm diamond band looks fine on its own but I have very small hands. I almost never wear it alone though.

I thought a 1.5 or a 2mm band would be perfect- until I tried them on. Way too skinny for my hands. I don’t think they’re flat out too thin to wear alone but you may want to try some on for reference. I also didn’t realize how delicate they felt until I tried them on, to the point that I was nervous I’d end up breaking it.

Mine is 2mm eternity and I love it. I actually feel that with the two rings together (so 4mm total) it’s too much. I like wearing my wedding band on it’s own.

My band is a plain white gold 2 mm and though I rarely wear it alone because I love my ering, I would do so happily.  It doesn’t feel particularly delicate (it’s sort of rounded up and not totally flat – but almost unnoticably) and I don’t think it’s too thin to wear alone at all.

I have a 1.9mm plain plat band that I wear sometimes on it’s own, and it looks fine.  I will take a pic and post it later.  🙂

I have a very plain 2mm band that I wear on occasion.

sometimes I love how it looks so much, I want to wear it instead of my usual diamond/moissanite set.  also, it’s comfort fit, and I can barely feel it there!

Mine is 1.5 or 1.8 and it doesn’t look too thin to wear. But I do prefer thin bands so when I finally get to wear my wedding band (also 1.5 or 1.8), I can still bend my knuckle.
