    I think that if you’re going to wear the engagement ring on a different hand it could probably work (I’d say that if you think of wearing your ering, 5mm will probably be too thick). I think the best thing to do is what another bee already suggested – to go to jewlery stores and try it on. I’ve done that to decide on my setting 🙂

    I would go with the 2mm if you’re going to wear an engagement ring with it… 

    Side note: I love this ring!! Do you mind telling me where you found it?

    I think I voted for the 3mm, but seeing now that you have such elegant long fingers (and I hate you for that Tongue Out), I think 5 would look beautiful.

    I really like the look of the 5mm band, like you said you get to enjoy the design that way. just saw your actual hand.  I think it looks great!

    i voted before i saw your actual hand.

    now i think you could pull off the 5mm. without stacking.

    go for it girl!

    I like the 5mm because you can see more detail.

    @ ilaz, I’m petite here also; 3.5 ring size, but I am partial to substantial bands.  My ering is 3.1mm and the three stone heirloom is 3.5mm.   I have long fingers so that helps the bands not to look/feel overwhelming.  Love the sturdy look of a wider band.  Tried to get a side pic to get the mm visual to be somewhat clear.  Hope this helps.

    I Just noticed the question was particularly about 5mm, and not just wider bands in general, ugh.  Anywho, I agree with the poster that said there can be more detail on a 5mm, that is such a creative point of view.  *thinks I might apply this for wring, hmm

    Hehe I don’t think 5mm is too thick, and in regards to the original post, I think the 5mm looks way better than the 3mm. Mine’s 8.5mm thick on a size 4.5 finger. I have really long fingers though, longer than my husband’s fingers!

    I love the color of your ring!!!  And so different.  I think either size looks nice, however, as you said – the design can be seen better on the thicker band.  I thought I was partial to thinner bands, but my husband surprised me with a thick band e ring!  And – I – LOVE – IT !

    My e ring is 6 mm, my wedding band is 2 mm, and my third ring is my husbands – it’s 4 mm.
