The wedding ring is the most common piece of jewellery. They represent eternity being, a circle without beginning nor end and signifies a married person. While the engagement rings are worn only by women, wedding rings are worn by men and women. Many people don’t take them off for years. In time they get embedded in the finger, making it impossible to remove without cutting the band. It is good practice to remove them once or twice a month over night.
Comfort fit wedding bands
Rounding the inner wall of the wedding band is a relatively new trend, commonly called comfort fit. Besides the more comfortable feel due to the rounded edges, this design has smaller contact surface with the skin, providing the finger space to “breathe”. These rings are much easier to put on and remove. Comfort fit wedding bands are more expensive than the standard fit, since they need extra thickness and therefore more metal to accommodate the rounded inner wall.
You can order the wedding rings in this site in 9k and 18k gold (yellow, rose or/and white), palladium and platinum. The styles selected here are currently the most popular in South Africa, however if you have specific style in mind you are welcome. I can work out a quote for you from picture or drawing and alter the width, thickness and ornaments if you require changes. The modern low dome and filet edge wedding rings are variations of the flat bands. They are much more comfortable having their edges softened, extra heavy and with generous comfort fit.
Choice of precious metal
The type of precious metal a wedding ring is made of greatly affects its price and longevity. Platinum is the best white metal for wedding rings. It is abrasion resistant, though and naturally white. Because of its high price however, affordability becomes an issue. I will recommend it for delicate diamond bands and eternity rings. For heavy men’s wedding rings palladium is the right choice. It is naturally white in colour and hypoallergenic as platinum but much lighter in weight and price. Yellow is the classic colour for gents bands while the rose gold is a trend alternative for those who like to be different.
