Yellow gold band has a nice width to it. It is not thin at all. Yes, the diamonds are small, but the ring is only 1/4 carat total weight. The diamonds are well set, clear, white, and sparkly. I got this band ring to complement my wedding ring set that had a slight curve to the ring guard. It fits perfectly. I wanted something with smaller diamonds like this ring because I didn't want to overshadow my engagement ring diamond (which is .91 carats). This ring is a true complement to my set. I am not disappointed at all. I would definitely purchase this again.
