Thanks, @Nancy Z! How much do you think one has to size up to be able to wear a 10mm comfortably?

I would say at least one size up depending on your finger. Especially if you want to wear on index finger. My index finger needs about half a size bigger than middle finger. For my ring I’ve only gone up half a size, because I was afraid it’s gonna be too big, which I regret so much... now it barely fits my index finger, luckily I can still wear it on middle finger. And I can’t even adjust the ring size due to the design..

Thanks so much, @Nancy Z! That info is very helpful indeed.

@Mekp, thanks for starting this thread! I’m re-considering (yet again) my alternate ER design because of this thread.

I shelved the wide band idea for my three stone project but am wondering if I was too quick to disregard it. I‘d like to see if any one of you ladies have a wide ER ring you’d like to share on this thread.

I ended up not getting a wide band, but for the longest time I really really wanted this one for my e-ring/wedding set:

It's from Krikawa and it was like, 10mm-wide. But literally every jeweler I showed it to said it'd be "too much" for my fingers, that the details would get lost or look too crowded, and my DH wasn't a huge fun anyways. So in the end, I switched to something sleeker.

I was considering a wide band design for my three stone project, @Mekp but decided against it as it would limit my stacking options. I don’t have much real estate for stacking to begin with. So that was kinda the clincher for me. But who knows? I might change my mind yet again.

PS: I’ve been wanting a change from my usual slim, platinum ring repertoire and bought a cigar band instead to scratch that itch. Waiting for it to arrive but here’s a photo of 6.3mm band. 438CB118-BFD0-4564-A9FB-12079488F429.jpeg

That is my dream wide band I’ve tried them on before and my fingers are too short

Love it and it looks great on you. So much fun to enjoy the sparkles! Sometimes I put on some of my diamond pieces and walk in our basement because the lighting makes them sparkle like crazy.
