We measure the width of our ring in millimeters from edge to edge on the outside of the band.

In men's wedding band, 7mm to 8.5mm is the most popular width. We have ring width up to 11mm which some Big built men prefers.

Women who wear's band alone 6mm - 7mm range should be good. If the band is to be paired with an engagement ring, the most popular choices are 3mm - 6mm.

Choosing your wedding ring is a personal decision, how it looks and feel is what's important, wide or not, your wedding band will still look great.

Comfort Fit

Comfort Fit

The inside of a comfort fit band has a rounded shape that doesn't pinch the skin like a flat design can. Comfort fit helps you quickly become accustomed to wearing a ring, even if you've never worn one before. Most of our rings are designed with comfort fit, but you should refer to the specific product page to make sure.
