road2joy :  The thickness is 1.2 mm and the width is 1.9 mm. Do you know if your other band had this same thickness?   I don’t see your finger size on the CAD.  I personally like to make all my rings 1.8 mm thick so they line up.  If you have a smaller finger size, then going up to 1.6 mm is a good idea to keep it in proportion to the rest of the measurements.  If you are over a 7 or 7.5, then I would go up to 1.8 mm.  The bottom of the band takes the most abuse from being hit on tables and doorknobs so they can dent over time.

road2joy :  I have had rings at all sizes so I know how easily they can become dented or warped.  I know these really thin rings are fashionable but they just won’t hold up over time.  Since your e-ring is pretty thin, you don’t want to make this ring too thick but thick enough that it doesn’t dent or warp. Maybe you can reset your e-ring in the future for a sturdier band?  I would say the minimum thickness is 1.6 mm.  Some people like to go down to 1.5 mm and that is probably ok since there is no pave.  I don’t think I would do any less than that though….

road2joy :  I really think that size is the best idea.  I had Ella do my solitaire as well and it was 1.6 mm and I am currently getting it redone to 1.8 mm because I managed to dent the band pretty badly.  Their platinum is a bit softer than what we use here.
