Wedding Band Pair

Deciding On Band Width For Wedding Band Pairs

A pair of wedding bands takes the meaning and significance of a wedding ring a step further. Couples wear wedding rings to show that they are committed to spend the rest of their life together. In the case of wedding band pairs, the basic design concept of both rings is similar. This does not mean that the rings are exactly identical, infact the two rings in a pair of wedding band rings cannot be exactly the same. It is unlikely that the husband and wife would have the same ring size, this itself will. Similarly the gemstones and ring band width might not be the same too. As expected, the lady might want to wear a narrower wedding band as compared to the man.

So what should be considered when choosing the band width for a pair of wedding band rings. Let us discuss this issue with a look at various factors that would influence the decision of ring band width. By Kaisilver statistics that relate to wedding band pairs ordered for the past 4 to 5 years, we have the following buyer preference for band width. Men's wedding bands are generally preferred with band widths in the 8mm to 10mm range. There are few exceptions though, as we have crafted both gold and silver wedding bands for men with band widths that go to even 1.5cm (15mm). When it comes to lady's wedding band rings, the width selected is usually in the 5mm to 7mm range.

Kaisilver custom wedding bands can be ordered in gold or 925 sterling silver. The design, ring size, dimensions and gem stones can be selected by you. We can work with your designs or ours ... more.

Below are a few factors that would influence the band width selection for wedding band pairs:

Personal Preference: This ofcourse is what most buyers wish to follow, their personal liking. However the important thing is that the other factors that we explain below might not allow a buyer to go by his or her personal choice when ordering a pair of wedding band rings.

Metal: A decade ago you would hardly hear about silver wedding band pair rings, silver was taught to be too ordinary for special occassion rings. Though gold wedding band sets still outnumber the number of 925 silver wedding band rings ordered each year, you could say that the gap between the two metal options is quickly reducing. Gold prices are rising and there is no indication of a top off or reduction trend in this metal pricing. So when you order gold jewelry today and that includes gold wedding band pairs, the metal cost is a significant component of the price tag. To produce any jewel that is well crafted and sturdy, the metal weight needs to be proportional to the ring size and other dimensions of the jewel. With this information it is obvious that, a gold ring with a wider band width would involve more gold weight and vice versa. Try saving on gold weight to reign in the price tag and you will surely get a jewel that needs frequent repairs for bending or denting.

The scene is a bit different for a pair of sterling silver wedding bands. Though silver prices have also started climbing the ladder, the price of this metal is much lower as compared to gold. Since metal weight and cost should not be a big issue with most buyers, it is more likely that the buyer could follow personal preference for the band width of the wedding bands.

Plain or Studded: You could have a pair of plain wedding band rings that have no diamonds or gems. In the case of plain wedding bands, the issue of gem and diamond pricing will not be involved, the cost of the ring with reference to metal weight and band width will be fairly easy to assess. When it comes to gem stones or diamonds in wedding band rings, the type of gemstone and the price can play an important role in deciding the band width and ring price.

For example, if you wanted a pair of diamond wedding bands but were on a tight budget, a diamond size would be 3mm to 4mm rounds. With this option, the band width of the rings would be in the 5mm to 6mm range. Gems like rubies, sapphires, emeralds, demantoid garnet, natural alexandrite and even tanzanite can be expensive as the size of the gemstone increases. This would need to be taken into account when choosing the band width for your wedding band.

Metal Weight: We already mentioned that the metal weight for a pair of wedding band rings needs to be proportional to the ring size and dimensions. Let us presume that you needed a size 10 mens wedding band ring with with a band width of 10mm. In an ideal situation, we would suggest a gold weight of around 20 to 25 grams for the ring. Should your budget not be able to support the cost structure for a gold wedding band with this weight, we would suggest that you moderate the band width down to around 8mm. A pair of yellow or white gold wedding bands with low metal weight can bend or dent, gems and diamonds (if any) can then loosen and even drop off the ring.

At Kaisilver we always recommend sterling silver as an option, in cases where the budget available to a buyer is too low to support a sturdy gold jewel. Wedding rings are often required at a time when the couple has many other expenses to cater to. It might be a good idea to go for a pair of silver wedding bands and then, switch to gold when financial issues have eased. Tough the remaking of wedding bands is not a tradition, there are practical situations in life when traditions and customs need to be set aside.

Budget: In many cases, the budget allocated to the pair of wedding band rings has a strong bearing on the type of rings, metal and ofcourse band width for the jewels. We do come across couples searching for a pair of 'cheap' wedding bands but, do not feel that it is the right way to look for such auspicious jewels. Think of options, simple rings, no gems or diamonds, silver wedding bands as a possibility etc. It might be a good idea to search for a good custom jewelry provider and discuss your budget limitations. At Kaisilver we welcome such queries even if the buyer plans to source the rings from any other source.

Ring Size: The ring size is not the same as the band width, the ring size is defined by the diameter of the finger on which the ring would be worn. As a general suggestion, ladys ring sizes of around 6 to 8.5 could have a band width of around 5mm to 7mm. When it comes to mens wedding band rings, a size of around 8 to 10 would ideally be supported with a ring band width of around 8mm to 10mm. Large ring sizes with small band widths might look a bit strange and vice versa. There is no fixed table set for this equation, follow your personal choice and temper it with the available budget and gemstone or diamond that you plan to use for your wedding band rings.

Custom or Readymade: This will be a decision that needs to be made with sufficient time on hands. A readymade jewel is brought off the shelf, it could probably be resized to your requirements but no other customization can be done. On the other hand a custom wedding band pair can be fully tailormade and include all your preferences. It is however an option that will take around 4 to 6 weeks for production, since each jewel needs to be made from scratch. Since we do not buy wedding rings very often, it is a good idea to consider made to order wedding band pairs. Select the right jeweler and you will get a set of jewels that you will cherish for a lifetime and even for generations to come.
