Wedding bands are a unique type of ring. They’re in a class by themselves, characterised by a sense of purpose and symbolism that goes way beyond their ornamental work. The wedding band is the most traditional and, for many, the only piece of jewellery worn by men. Checkout The Jeweler’s Bench – Provo engagement rings. Wedding bands are worn by men and women around the world at all hours of the day and night, making them the most common piece of jewellery. Wedding bands are supposed to be secure, robust, and hypoallergenic due to their proximity to one’s finger. Obviously, they are supposed to meet one’s aesthetic expectations, but unlike the first three, this one is extremely subjective and allows for a lot of variation. Many factors, including the shape of one’s finger, influence how comfortable a man’s wedding band is to wear. However, there are a few commonalities that I’d like to highlight:
The wedding band must be “comfort suited” in order to be comfortable. This means the band’s internal wall must be rounded rather than smooth. This softens the edges and leaves just a small portion of the inner surface of the band in contact with the finger, allowing it to “breathe.” The wedding band should be sufficiently thick and hence heavier than the average flat wall one in order to make the inner wall rounded for comfort fit. This could be used as a starting point for determining consistency. The more generous the comfort fit, and therefore the higher the price, the thicker the wedding band. Cheap wedding bands use the least amount of precious metal possible and do not allow for a comfortable fit. Some manufacturers leave their wedding bands with extremely sharp edges in order to make them thinner. When shopping on a tight budget, keep an eye out for these. Other concerns about the comfort of wearing wedding bands are linked to unique wedding band designs. Some of them have sharp outer edges, tiny protruding details, and deep carved high ornaments. The plain, uncomplicated designs are the most comfortable, according to the rule of thumb.
