A Guide To Wedding Ring Shapes


It is important to understand that there is more that comes into play when it comes to buying wedding rings than what is at stake with engagement jewelry. Unlike engagement rings, you will be wearing your wedding ring for the rest of your life. One of the important things to consider is the shape of the ring, since it is a great determinant of how comfortable the ring will be. Here is a guide to wedding ring shapes.

The Court Shape

The court wedding ring shape is one of the oldest shapes for wedding rings, and this makes it a popular choice with many people. This ring shape is marginally curved on the outside and inside, and this makes it more comfortable to wear.

The Double Comfort Shape

This shape is not offered by many jewelers, but acquiring a double comfort shaped wedding ring assures you of the ultimate comfort when wearing it. This shape is marginally rounded on its outside and rounded on its inside. Also, its edges are rounded. Double comfort ring shapes are both contemporary and comfortable, and they have become very popular over the past few years.

The D Shape

These rings are exactly what they sound like. They have a D shape and are flat on the inside. In addition, they have a unique dome shape on the outside. These ring shapes have been in existence for several years, and they are very popular with many men and women.

The Flat Shape

A flat shape ring has flat surfaces, and it a more contemporary option for wedding rings. Wedding rings with a flat shape can have a modern appearance if they are designed with a large width and chunky depth.

The Flat Court

This has a similar shape, just like the flat shape when worn on the finger. However, it has a curved interior surface, which improves its comfort level when wearing it. This is a great option for people who love contemporary and chunky wedding rings, but they aren't used to rings, and they just need a ring that is a bit more comfortable.

The Flat-Sided Court

This resembles the traditional court shape, and it is curved on its outside and inside, but its sides are flat, which makes it to look less domed. Its flat sides means that the ring is heavier than court shape, and it makes it look bigger when worn on the finger. This is a very common option, especially for people who like wearing it alongside an engagement ring.
