Are you struggling to choose the right thickness and width for your wedding ring? While it's straightforward to measure your ring size, many people get lost when it comes to ring thickness and width. In this article, we'll explain what these terms mean and help you find the perfect measurements for your wedding ring.
Understanding Ring Thickness
Ring thickness is typically measured in millimeters (mm) and refers to the length of material from the interior of the ring to the exterior. This measurement is essential because it determines how much the ring may obstruct your other fingers when worn. Wedding rings come in various thicknesses ranging from 1mm to 6mm, with most rings falling in the 2mm-2.5mm range. We offer several 1mm ultralight options too. A thicker ring will look and feel more pronounced, and some designs may only be possible thanks to added depth.
Understanding Ring Width
Ring width is also measured in millimeters and refers to the distance of the ring from edge to edge. A wide ring takes up more space along your finger than a narrow ring. Our rings come in an 8mm width, with some available in 10mm. Many of our women’s designs come in a much narrower 2mm stackable. It's common for men's rings to be wider than women's for various reasons, including fashion and comfort. A narrow ring can create a more delicate and prestigious look, while a wider ring can appear more hardy and commanding.
Choosing the Right Measurements
When buying a ring online, you may have limited options to specify measurements on a particular style. However, knowing what you're looking for can help you make a more informed decision. If you prefer a ring that feels minimal, we recommend a thinner ring with an average to narrow width, staying within the 2.5mm-1mm thickness range. A wider ring will restrict more movement and may feel constricting as it covers more of your finger. However, it can also help blend the ring evenly with your finger, so choose what feels most comfortable to you.
Finding the perfect wedding ring thickness and width may seem challenging, but understanding these terms can make the process much easier. By considering the ring's thickness and width, you can ensure a comfortable and stylish fit that complements your personal style.
