Is there such a thing as just a plain wedding ring?
During our recent wedding show last weekend, we had the good fortune to meet with many existing and prospective clients. Many of these people had different ideas for their wedding rings, but one similarity did become self evident. Many of the guys that we spoke to, were unaware of the range of simple styles available and the options that exist for a plain band. Many explained that they were looking for “just a plain ring” and elements such as the width, profile and finger size had at this time had not been considered.
For this reason, we have decided to provide here, a simple list of 5 basic ‘Plain’ wedding rings, with a brief description of the profiles that are available. Each style tends to be available in lighter or more chunky weights, but not wishing to complicate the simplicity here, we will avoid reference to light, medium and heavy weights.
The Traditional Court Wedding Ring
Curved on the inside and outside, this plain design offers a comfortable fit. The curve is not pronounced, but ever so slightly rounded, with a soft feel. This style typically matches the standard band of an engagement ring.
The D Shaped Ring
This style tends to provide the most rounded outer shape, mimicking the outline of a letter “D”. The inner face of the D shape wedding band is usually flat and feel is more domed than the above court profile plain wedding ring.
The Flat Profile
The flat profile has a rectangular cross-section. The outer face is flat, and so is the inner surface. This style is very squared and sharper edged than the above two profiles.
The Flat Court Wedding Ring
The flat court combines features of the court and the flat profile. The outer face is completely flat whilst the inner surface that lies against the finger has a rounded court, curved surface. This is a popular design and provides an alternative to the regular flat style already mentioned.
The Concave Wedding Ring
One of the more unusual wedding ring profiles. The outer edges sit higher than the centre of the ring, which is sunk in a concave profile in stark contrast to the D shape. This style is not easy to re-size owing to the inward curve of the design. The inner surface has a regular comfortable court profile.
Further information can be found on the full range of wedding ring profiles available at Serendipity Diamonds, which can be provided with a range of end finishes and laser engravings to further personalise the ring.
