How wide should a wedding ring be?

Are you looking for a suitable ring to seal your bond for life? I'm very happy about that and I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart on this great step! The symbolic power of nature in particular has been strongly linked to love since ancient times, as countless love poems in all cultures tell us. If you're wondering how wide your wedding ring should be, then we should consider together how important it is to you to show your love to the outside world: Clearly visible, wide rings tell the world straight away: I'm married and happy and I want everyone to know! Dainty, narrower rings are more reserved, perhaps even more mysterious: you want to enjoy your love just for yourselves, float on cloud nine as a couple and not share your happiness with the whole world, but keep it as a thrilling secret between you. Both are of course legitimate. If you're having trouble deciding which type you belong to, then you can't go wrong with a ring of medium width (5 to 8 millimeters). Take your time and look around my pages. I am sure that you will find the right thing for your start into your new life together!

How to determine the correct ring size and width

As a guideline, the ring should slide over the knuckle with some resistance so that it doesn't slip off the finger too easily. Once the ring is on your finger, you should still be able to turn it. Both of these things depend on how comfortable it is to wear it and the width of the ring.

To make it easier to understand, I would like to explain this to you using my ring size:

I normally measure a size 53 on my left ring finger. That is my favorite finger for a ring. For a narrow ring with a ring band of 3 to 4 mm, I need a ring size 52. Especially if the ring has a decorative element on top like a flower ring and can therefore easily slide to the side. For a ring that is 10 mm wide or more, I use a ring size 54 to 55 and I wear my sage leaf ring, which is almost 20 mm wide, in size 56. But that is always the same finger. So you can see very clearly that the ring width also depends on the ring size.
