Ring thickness is the height of the ring when viewed from the side. Thickness of ring is categorized as light, medium or heavy.
Precious metal rings if correctly made are case hardened and durable, increases in thickness (weight) adds further strength. The main negative to a lightweight ring is the small chance of misshaping. This problem however can easily be fixed at a small cost and should not cause concern when choosing the lightweight category.
A good option on a lightweight ring is the court or easy fit profiles, these are strong and durable forms. Remember the gain in thickness will increase the price of the ring due to the extra precious metal needed. If you are wearing two rings on the same finger, aim to have them of similar thickness, this will help avoid one ring standing up over the other, especially on a d-shape profile as it has a low side edge.

Ring width is more about visual impact. Tarvier have provided one or two small considerations to help you decide.
Ladies often purchase the smaller widths of 2mm, 3mm or 4mm; these lower ring widths are gracious on the hand with a petite look. If your ring adjoins an engagement ring smaller widths are advised, the diamond takes the stage. Gentlemen take the upper bound of widths from 4mm upwards. Larger hands suite a wider, more visible wedding ring such as an 8mm or 10mm width.
Fashion lately has changed with wider rings being purchased by ladies, the ring width is a visual preference. Choice is what we endeavour to present.
