What does ring thickness mean?
What ring thicknesses are available?
There is not a standard size for the thickness of a ring and in fact we can create many designs that vary in thickness. We generally offer most of our wedding band style rings in thickness ratings from: light, medium, full, and heavy. The ratings we use are in reference to weight as the thickness of depth will directly correlate to the weight of the ring!
What ring widths are available?
Industry standard ring widths are generally: 2mm, 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 20mm. Uncommon widths are also available for certain styles or by custom request are 5mm, 7mm and the very wide 20mm width. See our pictures below to help as a reference point!
We can make any ring in any width!
How wide/thick should your ring be?
There are no rules when it comes to what ring width or thickness you should wear, but there are very common trends we do see. Ring widths 4mm and smaller are generally purchased and worn by women in our experience though not always. Ring widths 6mm and greater are generally purchased and worn by gentleman though this is not always the case. Smaller widths for women are generally due to bands being worn alongside diamond engagement rings though we do find a trend of much wider rings being created and made with diamonds to be worn on the opposite hand of the engagement ring.
Do I have to follow the norm?
The honest simple answer to this question is absolutely not! We have had a multitude of customers from both genders purchase ring widths in all ranges. Their are also many reasons to not follow ring width tradition as well! A 6mm width or smaller might be a great fit for a man who is looking for something with less presence. The same statement can be made for women who may feel an 8mm or thicker width may be a better fit. Larger ring widths are also worn for modern appeal, which is why 10mm, 12mm and 20mm ring widths are purchased.
Very often rings are purchased not just for weddings, but for style and fashion!
