Heidi Gibson rings are really pretty. But having said that, I would be afraid I may tire of the style after a few decades.  But that’s just me.  Your Fiance sounds a lot like mine.  He is all for the simple and classic look.  And I tend to agree. 

My ring specs:  1.5ct oval measuring 8.89 x 6.62 x 4.07.  Excellent grade symmetry & polish, E color diamond with VS2 clarity.  Setting is a 2mm 14k white gold comfort fit style.  My wedding band is the same. My ring size is 8.  Pic #3 does nothing for my diamond (it makes it look so cloudy) but it’s the only one I have now that includes the band.

Don’t know if you’re still around OP (why only one response that’s so odd), anyway, here is my oval moissanite Forever Brilliant, 8×6 mm solitaire.  I don’t know for sure the mm of the band, but it’s thin.

Size 4.25 finger, diamond is 1.72 carat on a platinum band.  Band is 2mm at its widest and tapers to 1.5mm near the diamond.  Most reputable jewelers do not recommend a band that is less than 2mm wide for durability purposes.

Hi!  I have an oval solitare that has a lot of tiny hidden diamonds (on the basket and on the bridge).  My oval center is .9 carats with dimensions 7.84 mm x 5.6 mm.  My band is around 2 mm wide.  Ring size 4.75.  Hope that helps! 

The last photo is with my wife to give you a more real life perspective view.  Her ring is a .75 carat round center with a halo and ring size 7 if you were curious πŸ™‚

emmarcj :  not sure if you’re still interested, I see this post is a bit old, but here is my 1.39ct oval on the thinnest rose gold band the jewelry felt comfortable putting it on πŸ˜€ my wonderful boyfriend (already starting to roll my eyes at myself when I say fiancé ) surprised me with this ring so I don’t know all the numbers but my ring size is 7 and the polish is excellent. I love ovals so I think is a great choice!
