A Guide to Bevelled Wedding Rings
Bevelled wedding rings feature three faces, unlike traditional wedding rings which have one continuous outer surface. The most popular bevelled ring styles have a width of 4mm or more, crafted in a choice or precious metals.
“A bevelled edge refers to an edge of a structure that is not perpendicular to the faces of the piece. The words bevel and chamfer overlap in usage.”
Are Bevelled wedding rings plain wedding rings?
Bevelled wedding rings fall under the category of Plain wedding rings unless they feature additional patterns or detail.
Why choose a bevel on your wedding ring?
A bevel adds an extra dimension to a plain style of wedding band. The bevelled edge can be easily applied to various styles of band. The most distinctive bevelled designs have a flat outer face. By machining a narrow chamfered edge, a wedding ring achieves the three-sided appearance typical for bevelled edge rings.
In contrast to the angular outer surface, most of our bevelled wedding bands include a curved, comfort fit on the inside. As a result, our bevelled rings glide effortlessly on and off the finger when sized correctly.
Gold, Platinum or Palladium Bevelled Wedding Bands
The Bevelled wedding ring is most popular for men. 5mm and 6mm are the most popular widths across all of the different precious metals. At this time, 950 Platinum is our best seller. Platinum is suitable for re-finishing back to the original mirror or matt finish. Furthermore, Platinum is 100% hypoallergenic, hard-wearing and naturally white.
Whether to choose a shiny or matt finish for your bevelled ring
There are 3 choices for your bevelled wedding band. Each gives a different effect and there is very little difference in cost.
1. Highly polished to a mirror finish
All faces of the ring are highly polished to a mirrored effect. Over time the ring will wear, but the mirror finish is easily re-applied to restore the shine.
2. Matt or satin finished
A matt or satin finish gives a softer sheen to the surfaces of a bevelled wedding ring. If you prefer a less shiny effect, then consider a satin finish.
3. Mixed shiny and matt finish
This is one of our most popular choices for bevelled wedding rings. We matt finish the wider middle outer section of the ring. In contrast, we mirror polish the outer bevels along with the inner surface. Please note that we always mirror polish the inside of our wedding rings.
Engraved Bevelled wedding rings
Bevelled wedding rings suit engravings. We frequently apply bold engravings to the flat outer face of the ring. For example, Roman Numerals work beautifully around a bevelled ring. There are many alternatives engraved or patterned effects. Our team are always on hand to recommend different designs. In addition to engravings, we can also flush set diamonds between engravings for a truly unique effect.
