    I can help! I have a 7x7mm sapphire with graduated princess cuts in the band. The widest part of the band near the center stone is just a hair under 4mm, and the band is 2.6mm wide at the last/smallest princess cut. The band is 2mm wide at the very bottom under my finger, so quite comfortable. The photos make the ring look chunkier than it is IRL.

    I love invisible set princess cuts, and I think you’d be happy with a graduated band!





    This ring above is a reset of my original ering. The next photo shows my original set with a .58 pear diamond, as well as the princess cut wedding band. The wedding band is about 2.1mm wide. I wanted the 2.5mm band, but my ex bought the less expensive one :/

    I have a 2mm channel set princess band (1/3 carat) and love it!  I like that there are no spaces between the stones and it sparkles well for the size.

    I posted on your other thread but here’s my 3mm channel band with round stones!

    I had the same issue with my wedding band. I really wanted a channel set band with princess cut diamonds because I didn’t want any gaps between the diamonds, but that meant the ring would be thicker, with a squared edge (rather than the rounded edge of my engagement ring). Since I love the shape and thickness of my engagement ring, which was custom made by a platinum jeweler, I decided to send my wedding band to the same jeweler who made my e-ring so he could modify it. My band only has a row of princess diamonds across the top, so the jeweler is going to sculpt the part of the band without diamonds to make it thinner and rounded, like my e-ring. He’s not going to touch the top part with the diamonds. That might be an option for you.

    Here are some pics of my rings together. You can see how the wedding band on the bottom sticks out between my fingers more than my e-ring. And if you look at the backs of the rings, you can see how the e-ring on top has rounded contours, while the princess band is more square. The jeweler is going to modify the princess band so that it matches the band on my e-ring.

    Mine is channel set with princess and tapered baguettes. It is 2.7 at the widest and 2 at the narrowest as it goes around to the back. I don’t like the gaps of round channel set so this worked for me.
