Mine is just over 2mm I think and I personally wouldn’t go much smaller than 2. I feel this already looks small.

linnylou_88:  i dont know the measurement of my ring but I love how thin my band is. 

Anyone know how I can measure it?

my ER is 2 mm and my WR is 2.2mm, tbh – i dont think i would wear anything thinner than a 2mm on its own.

I have a 2mm band and 2mm taper e ring. I think any smaller alone my band would be too small. But I also have size 10 man hands with twice as long fingers as many women.

I think both my e ring and wedding ring are 2mm. I wouldn’t wear anything thinner, I think I have big hands so already find those quite thin but FI bought the e ring (which I love) and it looked wierd with a thicker band

I wear a 1mm ring on my right hand. I’ll use it in a stack with my e-ring after the wedding. (This is not my hand.)

I bought a 1.6mm cz band as a tester for my wedding band And while I feel it’s a tad too small next to my ering, I do sometimes wear it alone on my RH

I think it mostly depends on the size of your fingers and whether it looks in proportion. I think my wedding band is just less than 2mm because they said it was too thin to engrave and that was their limit. I live in a developing country and go to the beach a lot, and decided it wasn’t practical or appropriate to wear my e-ring every day so I mostly just wear my band. It’s thin-ness doesn’t bother me at all.
