    My engagement ring band is 1.8mm wide and thick, and it is as thin as the jeweler would agree to make it for structural integrity. I don’t really see any reason to make a band thicker than that, it just pokes into your adjacent fingers more. But if it’s a style that tapers toward the edges I’d go 2.3 just so it doesn’t get too thin.

    xkchelsea :  just a plain band. I think it was probably the combination of being thin and narrow that made him concerned about it structurally, but men are so rough on their hands I’d be a little nervous about hitting the back of his hand off something and having it dent. 

    It also just occurred to me material would affect strength. If it’s not gold it can be much thinner, although the ceramic alloys could shatter  

     

    I know it’s not the best representation but here’s a picture of how far it sticks out

    This is my husband’s ring – it’s 8mm thick. Too thick for you guys but just so you can see it on a hand

    are those the sizes of the engraving because those seem super thin for a men’s band. i think 5-6 mm is perfect.

    It will mostly be personal preference.  Even if you are ordering online, have him go to a jewelry store and try some on so he gets an idea of what he likes.

    You can image search ring wall thickness, but I recommend just going to the store and trying some on.
