The Average Wedding Band Width 👨🏻

It's the size that flatters most grooms and makes a visual statement of commitment without being too flashy. This width is a comfortable size as well—the perfect reminder of your vows for the day-to-day.

5 Tips to Find the Perfect Wedding Band Width for Men
1. What's Your Ring Size? 🤚🏼
Like all things in fashion, balance is key. Men with slender fingers and smaller hands may opt for a narrower band to balance proportions. Meanwhile, we recommend those with larger hands go for a wider band.
2. Are You Used To Wearing Rings? 💍
Your Wedding Ring is a symbol of love that you should never take off, so comfort is a big consideration. Go for narrower bands if you're not used to wearing rings. These are easier to get used to and chances are, you won't even notice you're wearing one. If it's not an issue, wider bands make a striking statement for the fashion-forward groom-to-be.
3. What's In Line With Your Style? 👨🏻💼
Are you more of a modern, minimalist guy? A narrow band with clean lines and a simple finish is the way to go. Going for a classic, vintage look? A wide band with an intricate design is perfect for you.
Your personal style plays a crucial role in helping you find the best Wedding Ring!
4. What's Your Budget? 💳
Price is an important consideration in making purchasing decisions for your Wedding. In this case, a thicker band will use more metals and cost more compared to a narrow one. It is also recommended to size up when getting a wider band for extra comfort since these bands sit tighter on the finger.
Better yet, when you find the ring for you, talk to a trusted jeweler. Who knows, maybe they can make a few tweaks to make your dream ring a reality, without sacrificing quality.
5. Do You Do Heavy Work? 👷🏻
As a reminder of your vows, your Wedding Band should last for more than a lifetime. So, getting a tough band is a no-brainer. While gold is mixed with other minerals for durability, we recommend a wider band when doing heavy work with your hands.
Do you prefer a narrow band? Another option is to go for a platinum ring—a premium choice for maximum durability.
