hi bees! i need opinions…
i found a setting that i really, really love but i just realized (durrrr) that the band is 2.2 mm. i originally wanted a 2.0 mm band and have now been googling what 2.2 mm bands look like and i THINK it’s sort of thicker than i want it to be! but i’m not sure if i’m just being paranoid and overly critical (i’m pretty excited/nervous about it so i’m probably being paranoid). i emailed the jeweler to see if it’s possible to make the setting a 2.0 but just in case… do you think a 2.2 mm pave band would look too thick/big/strange on a size 6.5 finger?

2.2 is still really thin!! I have a size 5 finger and my engagement ring band is 3.5 mm, wedding band will be 2 mm but I probably won’t wear them together. A 0.2 mm difference is hardly noticeable.

@RunnerBride13: I’m also a size 5 and want a 2.2 mm band! I feel like anything thinner will make it spin like crazy.

@missebelle: Indeed you are being paranoid 😉 Here is my 2.3 mm band — I dont think it looks very different at all from a 2 mm:

I don’t think so at all. That is thin actually.

It is still a very thin band. I have a 3 mm, and my fingers are smaller than yours, and I sometimes wish I had thicker!

Just for a reference point, I also have a 6.5 size finger (bear in mind that my fingers are short and fat though)!
My band is 1.5 mm thick:

I have a size 6.5 finger too and no it will definitely not be too thick! 2.2mm is really thin!

@missebelle: I’m hoping this will help you! I’m a 6.5 and this is my 2.2 wedding band :). at first i was worried about the width at first, too 🙂

@missebelle: You’re talking about the e-ring band? It would depend on how long your fingers are, not the circumference. My rings are 6.5 (although the last jeweler says I measure a 5.75). 2.2 should not be too thick at all unless you have ridiculously short fingers. My ring finger is 2.5″ long and the space where I can fit rings is about 1/2″
This one is 3mm at the widest
That ring plus a 1.7mm band:
A 4mm setting. I found that to be too thick. Still with the same 1.7mm band
1.7mm band by itself:

My e-ring is 2.2mm. My finger size is a little bigger than yours, 7.25.

@BluePeaches: I agree with you that the length of your fingers is what should be considered when choosing an e-ring shank. Also, you have to consider the total width with the wedding band you have in mind.
Generally, I find 2mm to be a really nice width. 2.2 should be similar. With a wedding band of 2mm, the total would be 4.2 mm.
My finger is a size 4.75. Here is my 1.2mm eternity band, which I find quite thin, moreso than the picture shows.
And here is my 2mm rose gold diamond band, which I love on its own.
Here is an idea of both stacked together. Fun bling!

I have a 2.2 mm e-ring band and a 2 mm wedding ring, and I can’t tell a difference between the two when I have them on my finger. I also wanted a thin band – 2mm and 2.2mm are actually thicker than I thought I wanted for my 4.5 finger, but they look perfect. I think if you like the 2mm, you’ll be very happy with the 2.2mm

Big picture, but you can see the 2mm (left) vs. the 2.2 (right). You can also see the patina on the underside of the platinum e-ring after 3 months!

That is barely any different 🙂 I got a 3 mm band and I am a size 4.5. I tried on several band sizes and 3 mm looked the best on me.
