Thickness of the Band for Your Diamond Engagement Ring

diamond ring engagement ring

When it comes to your engagement ring, the width of the shank can have a huge impact on how it looks overall. All that really matters is what you like best, and any ring design that incorporates your choice of band thickness (halo or non-halo, rose gold or yellow gold) is possible. When it comes to engagement ring designs, we speak in millimeters, so even the smallest error can have a significant impact on the final appearance. That's why being specific in your requests and working with a jeweler who can do it correctly is so important. To help you better understand the various shank widths, we've included this section.

The thinnest, most delicate 1.7-1.8mm

2.5-carat diamond is best suited for this shank thickness, which is the thinnest we would hand craft our bands while still maintaining security and durability. A large diamond would be too top heavy in this design, necessitating the addition of a small amount of metal to the band. Because of their thinness, the thicker bands are more fragile and should be handled with care. It's also worth noting that because the metal is so thin, the diamonds themselves are less substantial. The thin pave bands contrast beautifully with the center diamond and make any stone in the middle really stand out, which is something our clients appreciate.

1.9-2mm

With a slight increase in thickness, this band retains its delicate appearance while providing a firmer grip. This band's diamonds are slightly larger, so they produce more glimmer and are an excellent choice for someone looking for a delicate look that is slightly more substantial. To us, this is a great middle ground between a ring that's too heavy and one that's too light.

2.3 mm band and up

engagement rings with thick bands will be classed as thick band engagement rings For those looking for a sturdy band with a lot of sparkle, this thickness is ideal. These bands are more stable for those who use their hands a lot throughout the day, as there is more metal holding each diamond in place. It is possible to see each and every diamond in this ring due to the impressive sheen provided by the extra-thick shank. A thicker band may not be necessary if the center diamond is less than 1 carat in size, so keep that in mind. Diamonds that are too large to be inlaid into the ring necessitate prong settings rather than pave settings for these bands.
