My SO and I will likely become engaged in the next few months and I know that he would like to wear an engagement ring. I’ve found one I want to purchase but just not sure whether to go with 5mm or 7mm?? He he a ring size 8.5 because of his knuckes, but his fingers are likely more an 8. He is very tall so has very long fingers. What do you FI’s/ DH’s wear?? Bonus points for pictures and wooden rings lol
Thanks in advance x

DH’s ring is 5.5 mm, and seems to be on the smaller side of average. I don’t think you could go wrong either way.

My Fiance has a 7mm, he also liked the 5.5 mm but he loved this ring, and it was thicker.

My fiance wears a size 7 ring. But that’s only to get it over his knuckles, his fingers are probably a bit smaller than that. So he’s got similarly long slender fingers to your boyfriend. We tried on a few rings and I thought that we would go with something really thin, but when we got to a store to try on rings it turned out that the wider rings looked much better on his hand. We ended up getting an 8mm ring for him.
This is something that’s pretty personal. I’d suggest going to a jewelry store and just trying on a bunch of different widths. You don’t have to buy a ring there, just see what looks best on his hand.

My DH wears a size 10 and a 8mm ring.

My Fiance also has long thin fingers! He has a size 7.5 finger and his ring is 4mm. Both my father and grandfather also have 4mm widths, anything over 5mm seemed way too wide for our tastes.

My OH is a size 14.5 and has an 8mm band. He says it’s pushing it on width and it’s almost too wide for comfort. I vote 5mm!

Lanky fingers can take bigger rings. Any chance you could order both and send back the one he doesn’t like as much?
