My wedding band is just under 2mm. I love dainty bands. And paired with my 2mm e-ring, it’s perfect for me (8.25 ring size). That said, I do not wear it alone, because it is too thin looking to me when worn solo. I always intended to wear my rings together on a daily basis, so the fact that it does not look “right” on its own is okay with me.

I really don’t like the way 2mm bands look on their own (3-4mm is the sweet spot for me for a solo band), but when you add the engagement ring they do look nice. In your case I think I’d wait to purchase the e-ring first, and then figure out the best band to go with it. 🙂

My finger is size 7.5; my wedding band is a plain 3mm, white gold band. My engagement ring band width is 3mm as well, I wanted both widths to match. Eventually, I want to get an eternity ring with the same width, 3mm. So, all in all, the total width will be 9mm. I think once you get your engagement ring you won’t feel your wedding band is too thin. Good luck with it though 🙂

I wiat to see how your e-ring looks first that can radically change the width and style of band you want.  I agree with cranraspberry, my sweet spot is 3-4mm and the band we’ve settled on is 4mm. Any thicker and my rings worn together would start to bump against my knuckle, and thinner and the design I love isn’t doable.

That’s how mine is – it’s 1.7 mm (6.25 finger) and skimpy on its own.  I almost always wear my set though, and I don’t like the look of big chunky bands, so it’s great for me.

My wedding band is 1 mm jacket on each side of my engagement ring.  Since my engagement ring is 6 mm wide, it works great.

I like a thinner ring, and I plan to get a 2mm and wear it alone sometimes. But I also have very thin, very short fingers (size 4.5) A 4mm band looks huge on my tiny hands (I know, I tried on my moms 4mm)

I have a 4mm floral band.  The detailed nature of  the band makes it looks much daintier than 4 mm.  I saw a photo of a similar band in 3 mms and felt is wouldn’t have enough presence on its own at that width.  4mm looks great alone and with my 2mm e-ring shank.

I don’t have my band yet but 2.5 mm is exactly the width I’ve decided on for 5.75 finger. It can still be worn alone but pairs nicely with a thin ering. Here’s a pic of a 2.5 band paired with a sample ering.

I’m going with a 3mm step down plain gold band. My ering is roughly 2mm. While a 2mm wedding ring looked fine, I want to be able to wear just my band some days. Truthfully, I like 4mm the best, but it looked wierd with my really delicate e-ring, so went with 3. Good luck!

hmm my platinum knife-edge ring is around 3 mm (I don’t know the exact width, I actually measured it myself with a ruler lool… FI has no idea of it either.) I think it’s a bit too thick for my fingers, I wear a size 5 (but I’m considering sizing it to 4 3/4 cause it’s still kinda loose) and I kinda have small hands. Oh well I had no choice and it’s too late to change it (it’s a Tiffany and FI proposed after the 1 month deadline for exchanges). So yah too thick is not better either! I will definitely get a very thin wedding band to go with it.

Oops I misread the title of the thread and I can’t seem to be able to edit my last post… :s Sorry! Neways I don’t think thicker is better in every case, either for an e ring or wedding band, I guess it depends on how well both match together in the end…
