Wedding Rings for Very Big Hands
Comparing size T and size Z+8 across two men’s wedding rings
Are you struggling to find an extra large wedding ring?
When it comes to purchasing a very large wedding ring, there are potential difficulties to overcome. Since a smaller proportion of the population have very large finger sizes, fewer retailers will cater for sizing and for providing large wedding rings. The following are some of the considerations to keep in mind in such an instance.
Do large size wedding rings cost much more?
Cost is one of the greatest implications for large wedding rings for men. Alone, the cost of wedding rings would not necessarily be an issue. Together with the many other wedding costs, the rings are an expensive item for budgeting into the big day. Since wedding ring weight determines cost, a Z+ size of wedding ring will be heavier and more expensive.
Suggestion: If you are favouring Platinum, but the large finger size is making the ring far too expensive, consider a lighter option that will look the same, such as 950 Palladium.
How wide should your plus size wedding ring measure?
Keep in mind that large wedding rings for men in very big finger sizes will be better proportioned in greater widths. A wedding ring in size T with a 5mm width will appear similarly proportioned to a 7mm band that is size Z+8. The above image shows two such rings balanced by an increased ring width. The ring to the left is size T (5mm) and the ring to the right is size Z+8 (7mm)
What style to order for your extra large wedding ring
Larger finger sizes suit simpler designs. A plain band is often the best option, but additional detail such as a simple sectioned design, plain lines, or a very simple pattern will also work well. The above images show a bevelled effect with polished finish across the exterior surface.
Best thicknesses for very big wedding ring sizes
For very large wedding rings, we tend to recommend at least a medium weight, to stay in keeping with the size of the ring. Heavyweight rings also work well. Light, medium and heavy versions exist for most styles of wedding ring (eg. flat court profile.)
