I am officially crazy – coming back here with another ring issue.
I’ve had a 2 mm e-ring and 4 mm wb. Was wearing them as a set for half of the year and all the way thought that my w-band is too thick for my hand. Now couple of days ago my ring was shaved a bit down to 3 mm, and it looks now too thin and even hardly visible when weared alone. So now I want another, thick (4 mm again?!) w-ring to wear alone when I will have that non-blingy mood.
Was 4 mm band good for me? Was it too thick? Why the hell this 3 mm ring (really 3mm, I’ve checked it with ruler) looks like it is barely a hald of my old 4 mm band?
Or maybe my newly shaven ring is just perfect and I need to calm down? I like my new set, but also desperately want some hammered-brushed-wide-rustic band… Maybe I need even a thicker ring (like 4,5-5 mm) to have a more proportional look?
I really need some input, please! My rings are never look right 🙁

Is the bottom picture of how it looks now? I think it looks good, are the bands two different types of gold or am I just seeing things?

I think the thinner one looks fine, but I do prefer the look of the thicker band (both in the set and alone). I like that it has more presence.

I think it looks perfect at 3mm! It actually looked great at 4mm. It doesn’t match — you went for a mismatched look BUT you want them to match? LOL! It’s a beautiful ring. Let it live. If u want to try other sizes out, just get a variety of bands and leave the original be.
Btw…my band was 10mm but I had a 2mm and a 4mm and I would switch them out according to my mood.

Which is which? I like how they all look. Not too thin at all

I definitely prefer the thinner version and I think it looks lovely on it’s own.

i like the look of the thinner one better. I think it is a better complement to your ering. The thicker one takes your eye away from the center stone.

The thinner version looks perfect.

yes, that’s what I have now. shiny 2 mm white gold and brushed 3 mm yellow gold, so you are right!
it is not about matching rings, it is more about rings matching my hand, proportions, ets i loved the thicker band, but I didn’t liked how it worked with an e-ring on my chubby finger. finger looked more chubbier than it really was))
first pair of pictures – set with 4 mm w-band, second pair – with 3 mm w-band

For what it’s worth I think it looks good 🙂

The way you have it now looks fine, but I liked the contrast before with the 4mm band.

I don’t think the 3mm looks to thin when worn alone – my wedding band is about half as thick and it’s still noticeable. Love love love the brushed gold by the way!

seems that I like wide band too.. Wow it will be so-o-o stupid to shave off one mm from the ring, and then to buy just the same one 4 mm band I’ve already had. Just unbelieveable stupid 🙂
Maybe it is just an optical illusion, but 3 mm band looks thinner, much thinner than I’ve expected.

I like the thinner one best but both look good
