When buying wedding rings, the width of the band comes last in the checklist, if not at all. Since a lot of other important elements factor into the selection of wedding rings, band width gets the least of attention. But quite contrarily, the width of the ring band deserves equal attention as the gems, metal, style and price of the feature. Some rings have skinny bands while others have really broad ones, and there are those that can be placed in between. Let’s discuss about them in a little detail. For the ease of understanding, the band widths have been classified into three types here, the skinny, the comfort and the broad.
Skinny Bands: Skinny bands are mostly found in dainty rings that have no descript details or features on them. These bands are normally seen in solitaire wedding rings that use a moderate size diamond and no major ornamentation. If you are looking for a modish wedding ring, then skinny bands is what you get with it. Skinny bands are an ideal choice for those with long, thin fingers. They are neat, have plain lines and are uncomplicated in their style.
Comfort Bands: Meeting the skinny and broad bands somewhere in the middle are the comfort bands that are neither dainty, nor gaudy. This band width most find reasonable because of their medium width and comfortable fit. Comfort bands normally do not have flat or pronounced edges. They feature rounded interiors and bezel borders that ensure a very relaxed fit. The comfort bands is a fine choice for all kinds of hands. They usually carry a little details on the shoulders that may vary from engravings to stonework. Stone accenting looks great on ring bands of this width. So, if you are looking for a moderately gorgeous wedding ring that will wear more than just one gem, then this looks like a good choice.
Broad Bands: Broad bands are the most substantially sized bands seen on rings. These bands with the maximum width, something that is purposely created to make room for engraving patterns or placing gemstones on. These bands are normally less comfortable than the two aforementioned varieties for the obvious reasons. But, for those who do not plan on wearing their wedding ring all the time, this is an option to consider. If you have a dainty engagement ring, you can make up for that with a grand wedding ring with a broad band.
