Plain Wedding Rings
Journey through an extensive collection of plain wedding rings in classic wedding ring styles. Select mirror polished or satin finished with or without engraving. Most of our plain bands give extraordinary comfort and value. Choose between Platinum, Palladium or 18ct Gold in white, yellow and rose options or seize the opportunity for a richly meaningful Fairtrade Gold wedding band for 100% ethical assurances. Our collection includes light, medium and heavyweight rings with a slight court, traditional court, D-shape, flat court, and concave designs as part of our core range of wedding ring styles.
Buying a Plain wedding Ring
Consider several details before making your choice. Browse a selection of styles, also known as ring profiles. Ring profiles describe the shape of the ring. These include Traditional Court, Slight Court, Flat Court, D Shape and Concave. In addition, consider the thickness of your wedding ring. We create most designs in a choice of light, medium and heavy weights.
It is worth remembering that light weight rings offer good value; medium weight wedding rings remain most popular and heavy weight wedding rings weigh far heavier with more precious metal. For this reason, heavy weight rings demand a higher price.
Plain gold wedding ring designs
Many of our clients choose a simple plain gold wedding ring in a slight or traditional court design. The addition of a simple engraving adds a personal detail to a very simple ring style. Keep the plain effect by adding an engraving to the inside of the ring against the finger.
Our plain gold rings come in 12 different choices. These include: 18ct white gold, yellow gold and rose gold, 9ct white gold, yellow gold and rose gold and finally, all of these in 100% ethical Fairtrade Gold.
Getting the correct finger size for your plain band
This is perhaps the single most important detail. Take extra care of this detail when you order a custom engraved ring. Many of our plain bands can be size adjusted, but engraved wedding rings are trickier to re-size—especially when downsizing.
If in doubt, contact us for expert guidance, or visit our wedding ring showroom in Ryde for a one-to-one appointment. For some clients, we send out a set of sizers to determine your size ahead of ordering your plain rings.
Classic wedding rings in Platinum, Palladium, Gold and Fairtrade Metals.
We create a full selection of classic wedding ring styles. Brides typically choose the precious metal based on a match to any existing engagement ring. For men's plain wedding bands, we recommend Platinum or Palladium across all classic wedding rings. Both metals require very little re-finishing. In fact, from time-to-time re-polishing might be an option. However, both metal choices do not require re-plating with Rhodium. Alternatively, for a cheaper option, we would recommend Titanium.
The advantages of a Plain Platinum wedding ring
A plain Platinum wedding ring offers a permanent colour without any Rhodium plating. Unlike white gold, we do not plate Platinum with Rhodium. This luxurious, dense precious metal provides natural whiteness, excellent durability and the choice of a shiny mirror polish or matte finish.
Buying a solitaire engagement ring with plain wedding band
Buying a solitaire engagement ring with a plain band requires a skill to match both bands. We provide this service to match the width and ring style of any band to the engagement ring. In fact, we carry one ring design to match most engagement rings.
2.5mm wide wedding rings suit most engagement rings. As part of our service we check your existing ring style against our showroom designs to advise on the best band for your engagement ring.
What about Fairtrade Gold?
Buyers who seek 100% ethical wedding bands should consider Fairtrade Gold. We are full licensees with Fairtrade Gold to supply most of our designs in ethically sourced Gold from areas such as Sotramin in Peru, sourced from Fairtrade certified mines.
Selecting the best width for your rings
We create plain rings in widths from 2mm up to and including extra wide wedding bands in 10mm+ sizes. For most engagement rings, we recommend a 2.5mm wide ring to match. Alternatively, a 3mm or 4mm wedding ring will provide a wider appearance alongside an engagement ring. For bespoke wedding ring widths, contact us for a detailed quotation based around your exact requirements.
Popular wedding ring profiles for plain bands
Within our showroom, and online, we have several popular profiles for classic plain wedding rings. Most popular is the medium weight slight court wedding ring. Our best selling wedding band features a comfort fit with a slightly curved outer face. The Osborne design is suitable for engraving and diamond setting in most width and finger size combinations.
Should you choose a light, medium or heavy weight wedding ring?
Most of our classic plain wedding bands come in a choice of three weights - light, medium and heavy. Lighter wedding rings are less expensive owing to the lighter gram weight. Medium weight bands are the most popular. Heavyweight rings are substantial yet a more expensive option. Consider both comfort and design along with the depth of your ring to achieve the perfect choice and contact us for more help and guidance.
