I’m pretty sure we have the same size finger. I’m an I, I1/2.

my ring is a 2mm band and I personally think it’s pretty wide (I also like a daintier look), so I think much bigger would look a bit TOO wide, but I have small hands (shortish fingers?) so maybe if they were longer it would look fine.

heres mine

2.3mm will not look particularly dainty on your size. What’s the design element that’s making him want to go that big?

I have the same finger size and wouldn’t consider 2.3 mm wide, especially with a diamond your size.  I suppose that’s all a matter of personal taste though.  Are you able to try on something similar to give you an idea of what it would look like on your finger?

Would you consider a knife edge band? My solitaire has a very similar side profile to yours and it’s a 2.3mm moderately sharp knife edge. Sometimes I almost wish it was a little thicker tbh!

@lostinblue:  The 2.3mm won’t look dainty but it will be a ‘solid’ ring for everyday wear. Sometimes I see some skinny bands and I can’t help but think that they must not wear their ring while ‘doing life’ because it’s SO thin. I wear my ring doing everything with no concern because the band is solid.

@newbeegirl:  Your ring is one of my favorites of the bee and I am always admiring it!! 

Could you post the specs and your ring size? Also I think you had a different 3 stone ering before this one right? If so, what was the specs of that and what made you want to get what you have now? Do you still have both and if so which one do you like better and wear more? I would love to see more pics of it, side views and comparison pics!

Lastly, I love your wedding band! It goes so well with your ring! Is it a eternity band? Do you ever wear it alone? And if so do you have pics of ot solo? 

Thanks!!! πŸ™‚

I don’t consider 2.0 to 2.5mm wide at all. Maybe it might be compared to 1mm or less bands. 4mm or more is wide to me so I keep at 2mm to 2.5mm. 3 at very most.  I won’t get anything less than 2mm because it’s more likely to get warped quick,  especially for people who wear it through every single thing in their life ever.

Even my 2.3-2.5mm platinum band has warped just ever so slightly and I’ve been wearing that sucker for 3 years and avoiding doing things like heavy lifting cleaning or wearing it during gym time. I would be afraid to see what I would do to something thinner.

Also I think it depends on more if your fingers are short vs long more than the physical size. I have short fingers and a 6.5 finger. I try not to wear more than 3 bands because its hard to bend my finger because no length for it whereas a size 4 with long fingers could wear more than me.

2.3mm will not look dainty. Especially when you add a wedding band on top of it. I have size 4.5 and trying on rings with wide bands, it is too much for my personal taste. I find them uncomfortable!

I think 2mm is plenty so long as it is as thick as it is wide. 2.3mm seems slightly too thick.

@happybee2020:  aww you’re so sweet! It’s a 1.15ct (6.85mm) ideal cut, E, SI1. The ring is a size 5.

And good memory! Yes, the solitaire is an “upgrade”/graduation gift for my master’s degree, but I still have and love my three stone engagement ring! I had always loved the look of a classic knife edge solitaire but when we got engaged a diamond in the size I wanted just wasn’t in our budget so we picked the three stone that I fell in love with the moment I saw it. I feel very lucky to own both! I generally prefer the solitaire right now but that’s partly because it’s still very new and the diamond’s cut is stellar. 

My three stone has a .60ct very good, F, SI1 round brilliant and two .10ct F pear side stones. I love the proportions and the center diamond still has beautiful light performance, I just find the arrows are not perfectly aligned like in my solitaire diamond. 

The wedding band goes about 3/4 of the way around because of my finger size and because it’s custom contoured to fit my three stone (and because I LOVE bling) I rarely wear it alone. 

And here are the pics!
