The difference between traditional court and slight court wedding rings

When a client comes into our showroom to view wedding rings, despite a clear explanation of wedding ring styles, there are perhaps too many styles to take in at first.

In addition to this choice, there are light, medium and heavy weight options to consider.

The court wedding ring is by far, the most popular wedding ring shape. Despite many variations, court wedding rings have a curved outer surface and a curved comfort fit inside the ring. The court wedding ring is popular because it is simple and very comfortable.

The two main variations tend to be divided between two styles.

The Slight Court Wedding Ring

Options and prices

Medium weight – 1.7mm deep

The slight court wedding ring has a flatter appearance, and to some this is a more modern version of the court wedding ring. Although unisex, the width is normally an indication male and female choices. 2.5mm is most popular for women and 5mm for men.

The Traditional Court Wedding Ring

The traditional court wedding ring is more rounded when compared to the slight court. Compare the two images at the top of this page. The traditional court on the right of the screen has more curvature compared to the flatter profile of the slight court.

Both styles are popular and very comfortable with a subtle difference in shape. Cou
