When a little help is required with wedding rings, we aim to be on hand to simplify things. We frequently receive calls from men especially who have no idea what profile of wedding ring to choose. Some men leave this decision to their partner, and opt for the corresponding style they choose, but in a wider option. We think that if we present a concise introduction to the various styles available for plain rings, then the decision might become a little easier to make.
What is a wedding ring profile?
The profile of a wedding ring is literally the cross-section which can vary between designs. There are pro’s and con’s to certain designs (for example concave rings are hard to re-size) but on the whole, as always, it is a matter of personal preference. The different plain ring designs offer each person the chance to personalise their ring, but traditional styles remain ever-popular such as the comfort fit which has a slight curve to the inner and outer surfaces.
What are the main wedding ring shapes available?
These can be best summed up in the following list.
- Court profile – the traditional style with curved inner and outer surfaces
- D shape profile – Flat inside, domed outside
- Flat profile – flat edges inside and out, with a flat side wall
- Concave – curved recess on the outer edge rolling into the ring
- Bevelled – Flat profile with edges bevelled to provide three polished edges to the ring
Many companies now create their own profile names, which can lead to a great deal of confusion. There are however variations within the industry that we also use. The names try to offer a better idea for the consumer, detailing style elements, such as our rounded flat profile wedding ring, a new addition to our plain styles.
