vandeveldejn:  Are you trying to decide on the width of the band/shank for your ERing? Or are you thinking about what width of wedding band you might want to go with your ERing later on? From reading your post, I thought you meant the width of the band for your ERing … but I wanted to ask because I was a little confused and thought I might be wrong. LOL

I don’t think a 2mm band will get lost on your finger, either in a wedding band or for the band on your ERing. Particularly if you have short fingers, you might not want to go much wider than 2.5 mm on the two bands, because you will likely end up with rings stacked up to your knuckle. This might be uncomfortable. (You might like your rings like that — all the way to the knuckle. Some people do, and find it perfectly comfortable. And that’s totally great. It’s all up to what works for each person. )

I think I have short fingers, and my fingers are kind of “cone shaped” (smaller at the tip and wider at the bottom). But my ring size is smaller than yours (I’m around a 7). I’m not sure my pictures would help at all. I do have a ring with a 2mm plain shank … and I typically pair it with a plain wedding band that is 2.5mm. I’m happy to post pictures, if you think they would help. But I didn’t want to clutter your thread if they won’t.

PS: Congratulations on your upcoming engagement! It’s an exciting time!

vandeveldejn:  i used to feel the exact same way!! i have 7.5 fingers and i always thought i needed a chunkier ring with more metal and substance bc my finger and hands are kinda big… i send Fiance a ‘hint’ picture of a double halo with pretty chunky halos and split shank bands…but the only part he understood was “2 sparkly rings around the diamond” (yes, that is a direct quote of what he told the jeweler who made my ring) haha anyway, my point is that my ring is pretty thin and dainty, something i would have never even tried on, and i find that it actually makes my finger seem thinner and dantier… which suprised me. anyway, here’s a pic…1.5 center, .5 in the setting, 7.5 size:

I’d await the e-ring before trying to decide on a w-band, if you plan to stack. Too many variables to really decide now, you know? But definitely collect ideas. I agree with longtimemrs that 2mm will be just fine on an 8.75 finger.

Happy shopping, Bride to Bee!

i think a thinner band will actually help if you have short, wide fingers. bigger bands can sometimes just crowd the finger. you should go try some on and see what you think!

vandeveldejn:  I’m glad I could help, even just a little. The cone-shaped finger struggle is real! LOL

It can be overwhelming when you first start out looking for rings. There are so many styles and decisions about different details. For me, it always made it harder to picture whether or not a ring would actually look good on me because I couldn’t really try any of them on.

You are so right: Your fingers/hands are the perfect size for your sweetheart to hold. And to hold him, too. If you have children, your hands will be perfect for holding them close to you, celebrating their little victories in life, and wiping away their tears. So I would say your hands aren’t bad at all! In fact, they are pretty darn awesome! 

Here’s a picture of my solitaire. It has a 2mm band on it. And the wedding band is 2.5mm.

I’m wishing you a happy and fun ring search. I hope you will find the one that is “perfect” to you and your BF (soon-to-be FI!). And I also hope you will come back to share the happy news and post pics of it once it’s officially on your finger!

I agree that a thinner band makes your finger look thinner – as long as the FIT is correct! If the ring is too small/tight, that’s when it gets ‘stuck in the sausage’, haha ew. A thin band is definitely the way to go, imho! Go dainty, go delicate, and it will emphasize that appearance. Good luck!

Oh that is the perfect ring for you! Congratulations! I bet you can’t stop looking at it.  How exciting! And I never would have said you had cone fingers lol.  🙂
