John Cordova (Vice President of Human Resources, Robbins Bros.) gives expert video advice on: What are the most important considerations when choosing a wedding band?; What width should I get for my wedding band?; What are the most common wedding band widths today? and more...
What width should I get for my wedding band?
Wedding band widths are measured in millimeters. For ladies the most popular widths range between 2 and 4 millimeters. For gentleman's wedding bands, the most popular sizes range between 6 and 8 millimeters. But please keep in mind that the width of the wedding band is really based upon preference, and style, and what you wish to wear.
What are the most common wedding band widths today?
The most common wedding band widths today, as measured by millimetre for ladies, are between two and four millimetres, and for the gentlemen are between six and eight millimetres. Keep in mind that millimetre size or width of the wedding band is essentially based on tastes, choices, the style of the ring that you are currently wearing, and the size of your hand. It is based on an individual basis and can range anywhere from half a millimetre to any size that you really feel comfortable with.
How can temperature affect the way my wedding band fits?
Temperature can affect the way that your wedding band fits. In warmer climates your fingers may tend to swell, so the way that the ring fits may feel a little tighter, a little snugger. In cooler temperatures your finger tends to contract a little bit, and so the ring may feel a little looser and not as snug. Keep in mind, when you're sizing the ring, the type of climate that you might be in, and be prepared to maybe go in and make some adjustments periodically.
How is a wedding band's width measured?
A wedding band's width is measured in millimetres. We see wedding bands ranging in millimeter size from half a millimeter, to as big as ten or twelve millimeters, depending on the size of the finger, the choice of styles that the guest prefers, and other factors that the guest really determines.
Can I match my wedding band to my fianc's band?
Many couples ask the question whether they can match their wedding band to the fiancé's wedding band, and the answer to that question is absolutely yes. Whether a designer or a ring maker has a matching men's band for the ladies engagement ring really has no bearing, because we can always have a ring made or there are other styles that are similar enough to match.
