I’m trying to figure out the same thing right now.  I ordered cheapie steel 2mm and 3mm bands.  I want a width that will look good both with my ering and on its own.  The band has to be on the thinner side, since my ering’s got a dinky <2mm band.  I’m going to try 2.5mm, because 2mm looks too skinny on its own, and 3mm is a bit thick to wear with my ering.

I have a plain band I wear by itself sometimes and it’s only 2mm wide. I like it because it’s super simple. it’s also very comfortable (the width makes a difference, and my ring is also a comfort fit band). 

I think it looks pretty, dainty, and elegant on its own.  personally I don’t like wide bands at all though.

My band is still being made (hopefully it’s done soon). Got a 3mm. I was all about the thick bands and I still am. For the longest time I was looking at a 4 or 5mm band. Unfortunately the ring I fell in love with only came in a 3 or 3.5mm and we couldn’t justify spending the extra several hundred for .5 more ring.So, 3mm it is. That and my guy preferred the 3 to the 4. Compromise. 🙂 My ering is 3mm as wel so it will make for a nice pairing.
