I agree with you that you’re going to love it regardless. IMO, the costs of tweaking will far outweigh the benefits. And besides, put some major mileage on that band and it’s gonna thin out a bit.

Just my $0.02.

desertbee242:  I have a Tacori half-eternity band and I definitely have less of a gap in between the milgrain edges and the little diamonds than your band. Mine looks like the internet photos that you posted. Hmmm.

Thanks, I think. 🙂

I’ve shaved down/thinned out my w-band but I had a full mm or so removed. Yes, the metals in rings are consumables. Look at vintage rings and you’ll see how thin the shanks and prongs become when well worn. Your jeweler may tweak it as part of its initial cost. You might as well ask. If something ever feels “off” on your rings, address it. Having said that, there does come a point when the cost benefit analysis tips in favor of leaving it alone. What you’ve described would be a “just leave it” situation for me. But, hey, it’s not on my finger.

The size different is small, but I can see it and understand why this is bothering you. My engagement ring was supposed to be 1.7mm but ended up being 1.8mm. Right when I saw the ring, I knew immediately that the band was thicker because I’m very detailed and see everything. Although it was a microscopic difference that no one else would ever notice, it totally bugged me because I wanted a thin band. After a few months I got over it and now I don’t mind 1.8mm at all! 

I think you should talk to your jeweler about what can be done since the gap does look slightly large, but you might end up getting used to it after a while.

Stunning ring, and it looks great whatever, but yes, when compared to the other picture, I can see the difference.

desertbee242:  It’s this band – http://www.whiteflash.com/wedding-rings/tacori-2630-b-mdp-12-dantela-half-eternity-medium-pave-diamond-wedding-ring-2637.htm. Description says 1.9 mm width.

Edited – I think my original photo didn’t have a good enough close-up of the wedding band. Ugh, trying to make the photo smaller. 😛

desertbee242:  Your wedding band is already pretty as is, but if the extra platinum or gap is bothering you, you should get it tweaked. 🙂
