The shank of my ering is 1.7mm and I designed it that way because I wanted it to be dainty. Now I do wish I would have went with 2-2.5mm because it’s top heavy and spins.

I have a platinum ring it’s very very strong…even tho thin… I never worry about it. I just got a 14 k white gold ring very very thin and I’m a bit afraid.  Any experience with gold in a very thin band of diamonds…?

Nextvie:  I have to ask!!! what size is your centre stone??? yours is the most beautiful ring I have ever seen. The halo, the rock, the incredibly thin band- it’s everything I want in a ring!! Love, love, love!!!!

Mine I just got back from the custom jeweler, pretty excited! It’s a size 4 1.5ct solitaire on a 1.5mm 14k white gold band with no tapering, doming, or cathedraling. I chose white gold because I didn’t want the bending or dulling that happens with platinum. It doesn’t spin at all so far, but probably will when I’m in colder weather.

2017bride2be:  I have always loved the idea of a wide band with a nice center stone …. something like these: 

 

 

 

My original e-ring was 1.5 mm and the bands were as well. I manage to break the shaft of one band and decided I needed to have everything re-set into a sturdier setting :/

JuniperSage:  Oh no! How did you break the shaft? By coincidince, my ring came in the mail today (EEE yay! though my SO has confiscated it now) and it’s the same setting that OP posted in this thread three years ago. It’s sososo pretty, but the band does taper to be fairly thin at the top. I plan on taking off my ring when I do anything risky anyway because it’s a sapphire, but I’m wondering how concerned I should be.

flip_flop:  eeek I meant shank! Ha, sorry. I’m not sure how I broke it…it just happened. Congrats on your ring! Just be careful like you are planning & be sure and have it checked regularly by a jeweler & you should be fine. 🙂

Mine is 1.7mm. Shane Co. told me they wouldn’t make anything thinner than 2mm because it’s too fragile, but I’ve seen thinner bands, so I felt like that was BS. I found this one online at Adiamor and love it. I’m so happy with the choice—it’s not too thin and not too thick. I take my ring off when I go to the gym and things like that. I probably wouldn’t wear it skiing, but that’s how I’d be with any ring, not because my band is thin.

Mine is a 1.5 mm band and even though I see beautiful bands with big sparkly diamonds I have always gone for the dainty thin bands on rings so for my e- ring I chose the same look. I think it makes the center stone stand out more and I think I’m going to do a stacked look with 1 mm bands around it. So I may not have that BLINDING sparkle like ones with big diamond bands etc but I will have more of a “glittery” effect with my set which fits me 🙂 everyone is diff though so whatever makes them happy…..and no I do not find that they break only thing is just make sure u buy from a good jeweler as pave bands are very delicate and if stones are not set right can fall out/ also make sure sizing is not done often bc that will compromise the strength too.
