    It will probably be in the middle; it won't scream "thin band" OR "thick band". : (45 votes)

    No, on a 4 size finger that will not be considered "dainty". : (8 votes)

    Mine is 3mm wide… I also wanted thinner but got nervous about having problems with it later! I wear a size 5

    2mm on a 3.5 finger. I also went for a 2 mm wedding band.

    Mine is somewhere around 2mm and I love the width. It feels sturdy but doesn’t look bulky to me.

    Mine is in the 2mm range on size 4.5 and it definitely feels dainty

    My wedding band is 2mm and engagement ring is slightly thicker ( not sure of exact width). My finger is a size 5, e-ring sized at 5.25.

    My 2mm band! I definitely wouldn’t go smaller. We got mine in platinum to hopefully prevent anything from happening to it.

    MrsBuesleBee :  The jeweler that we are about to buy from says he won’t go below 2.5mm for my plain band on a 2 carat solitaire. I had debated going elsewhere to buy the ring because I want the smallest plain band possible. Would you advise going somewhere else or trust my jewelers advice about it being a bad idea to go smaller?

    Not quite a solitaire, but 2mm on a size 6.

    patiencejones :  If you want to go smaller, maybe consider platinum. Our jewler said it’s stronger then gold and will hold up better so that’s what we went with!

    jenny25years :  We will be buying an engagement ring soon, as in before 2016 is over soon. We are choosing a 2 carat center stone and our jeweler is saying that he will not make a band for that stone that is smaller than 2.5mm. He says it’s not wise. Do you think we should listen to the jeweler and continue with our plan of purchasing from him or go elsewhere to get the really thin band I want? What kind of problems did you want to avoid by going with your band? Thank you!

    becky3212 :  Becky, thank you! I will ask our jeweler about this possibility! With your 2mm did the jeweler say that the piece the center stone is in wouldn’t be thin enough to fit into the 2mm band or anything like that?

    patiencejones :  No, they didn’t say anything like that. The concern was more the wear and tear of such a thin band with a softer metal like gold, and it holding in the tiny diamonds. The platinum is more expensive but we decided it was better to be safe then sorry! I didn’t feel like having to have it repaired often because diamonds were falling out. Haha.
