So my hubby bought a new 18k rose gold channel set wedding band for my birthday last week.
It was resized from size 6 to 4. I recently noticed it is quite thin at the bottom.
The width of the shank looks pretty study at 3mm, but the depth of it is only about 1mm? maybe a tiny less at the thinnest point?
Am worried that it might break/bend/ or have the diamonds fall out due to poor structure.
Does anyone have experience/knowledge with rings with thin shanks? How well did it hold up?

I purchased my ring in an auction on eBay from a fairly well known company. The details on the auction page said resizing was free so I really didn’t think much on that beyond what was stated. My ring was a 7 and they sized it to an 8 for me. They obviously stretched it to size it and the base of my ring is as thin as yours. I was a bit concerned at the time but I’ve been wearing it every day for nearly 6 years with no issue. It still looks the same as day 1. I kind if went its a basic diamond band and if it breaks in the future I can get it easily reshanked by any local jeweler.
I can’t guarantee your ring will hold up because workmanship and quality can vary but if its going to crack it will do it at some point and usually in my experience with jewelry that has a weak point, it will do it sooner rather than later. Either get it fixed now or just keep monitoring it for damage. If it does crack in the future its an easy enough fix and an easy enough style to remake. I wouldn’t stress too much to be honest. It still looks fairly weighty and solid and quite thick in the band witdth.
