Should your wedding band be thicker than your engagement ring?
In Summary – getting your wedding ring size correct.
If you are choosing a wide wedding band, consider a slightly larger size if your existing engagement ring is a comfortable / snug fit. A traditional width (approx. 2.5mm) wedding ring should fit comfortably with an existing engagement ring of the same finger size.

Don’t go too thin
An engagement ring with a band (or shank) of at least 1.6mm-2.0mm provides a stable foundation for a center stone. Shanks thinner than 1.6mm may not hold up in the long-run. That’s why we recommend going no smaller than a 1.5mm band. If the band is too thin, it’s likely to crack or bend over time.

Do thin engagement rings break?

Can a jeweler make a ring thicker?
It entails the jeweler stretching the metal, and this can only be done up to half a size larger. If you need it to be larger than that, the jeweler will cut the band and add in an extra piece of metal, which they will then solder, clean and polish. As with making a ring smaller, simple bands are easier to make larger.
Is it better to size a ring up or down?
