There are various parameters you need to consider when buying a wedding ring or band, namely:
- Width – how wide do you want the ring?
- Depth – how thick (or deep) should the ring be?
- Profile – the shape of the ring.
The width of a wedding ring is, to a certain extent, a matter of personal preference. Some widths will be more comfortable than others, very light or heavy rings might look out of proportion or feel awkward on fingers that are petite or large. In general, widths range from 2mm to 8mm, although they can be wider, the larger sizes normally worn by men. As with the profile, the width should compliment the engagement ring – a similar shape and weight will look better when they are worn together.
The depth of the ring is often referred to as weight, as different depths effect the overall weight of the ring. A deeper ring uses more metal and therefore weighs more and consequently costs more. As with the width, depth is a personal choice but when worn with an engagement ring due consideration should be given to the depth and style of the engagement ring itself. In essence, the wedding band should be a continuation of the engagement ring style to further compliment and enhance the overall look.
The Court-shaped profile is also known as the comfort-fit. The internal curve of this ring ensures a smooth and comfortable fit.
A more substantial style of court ring, rounded on the inside and slightly on the outside but with flatter edges than the standard court.
These rings are flat on the inside and rounded on the outside – providing a comfortable shape which sits close to the finger and is less likely to snag, while still appearing substantial on the finger.
Sharp clean edges ensuring a sleek look that sits close to the finger.
