How wide should my wedding ring be

Wide or narrow? How wide should wedding rings be?

The question of the perfect width for the wedding rings

What is the right width for our wedding rings? A question that often creates uncertainty, especially when buying wedding rings online. Depending on the size and width of the fingers, the wedding rings must not be too narrow, otherwise they will be "lost", but on the other hand they must not be too wide, because then, in extreme cases, the movement of the ring finger is restricted. No need to panic, with this simple rule it is relatively easy to find out what the optimal width is for the still bare ring fingers:

  1. Measure the length of the phalanx (ring finger)
  2. Divide the number of millimeters by 3 (e.g. 19mm / 3 = 6.33mm)
  3. rounding accordingly, in this example 6.00mm

So you can roughly orientate yourself on this size. Of course, you always have the opportunity to try on rings made by friends in terms of width. Not only is the aesthetics decisive, but also the width with which you feel comfortable.

Differences between a women's ring and a men's ring

When it comes to the width of a women's ring and a men's ring, there is often the difference that the men's ring is slightly wider than the women's ring. In contrast to women, men often have wider fingers than women; therefore, a ring that is too narrow on a stout man's hand would not look aesthetically pleasing. Such a narrow ring is also easily overlooked and that would be a shame.
