2 carat moissy on 1.8 mm band  my rose gold band is 2mm slightly bigger. My knuckle is bigger than the width of my finger so sometimes it spins but it doesnt bother me

We chose to go with moissanite, so I hope you don’t mind me answering.

I have a 3ct equivalent on a 1.5mm band (and 2mm thick, or high if that makes sense) and looove it! I love how dainty it looks and how it almost disappears to let the center stone just shine!

I’ve recently lost a bit of weight so it’s not quite as snug as it was when I got it, and is starting to move around on my finger a bit more, but I personally don’t mind that and actually kinda like feeling the weight of her ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Ring size is 4.75

I tried to separate my bands so you can see how thin my band is. I think it’s 1.7mm. My stone is 1.8 carats. I’ve had it for 4 years with no problems. I love how thin it was but it wasn’t easy to find a setting with a band this thin. Every jeweler I spoke with recommended no thinner than 2 mm and that was noticeably thicker. As long as you have a warranty and a trusted jeweler it shouldn’t be an issue

I have some rings with large stones and thin pave bands but they have tiny thin halos. I really haven’t had any issues with the thinness of the band although I have heard stories about other rings being bent out of shape. I think it depends what kind of lifestyle you lead and how active your hands are. I wouldn’t recommend sleeping with your ring on, as that can actually damage it more than you’d expect.

hisfavoritewife :  awe thank you! I was considering white, but am glad I ended up going with the 18k rose. It’s almost more peachy than it is pink!

tmarieharold :  thank you!! I think if you size it right to not be super snug but not super loose, you’ll be good. Like so it has just enough spin, but not so much the dang thing spins right around to your palm! Lol Maybe get a few more cz rings in slightly different sizes to see what you like best movement wise?

thank you! I just picked up the rose gold band from the jeweler yesterday, it was an anniversary gift! ๐Ÿ˜

My ring is 1.78 carats, excellent cut/polish/symmetry.G color and SI1 clarity. My finger is a size 3. FYI my band is technically a shared prong not pave which I strongly recommend for a band this thin. You really can’t tell the difference from afar but it’s much more secure than a pave band with the same sparkle. Also it definitely does spin a lot because with a bigger stone it’s top heavy but I had sizing beads put in and that helped immensely.
