Make a statement with a nontraditional wide band engagement ring for a wow factor.
When you search for an engagement ring, it’s best to start with the ring band. Finding the right material for your engagement ring will also factor into how wide you want your ring shank. Wide band engagement rings give you that additional design allowance to showcase a remarkable statement.
Consider your sense of style and your jewelry taste. Maybe you desire a thicker ring band for more design opportunities. With a wide band engagement ring you can add additional gemstones, texture, openwork motifs, and so much more.
There are a few measurements to calculate when choosing the right ring width. Ring sizing is measured in millimeters (mm) so size differentiation is minuscule. Sort out your ring size, what attributes you want, and the varying widths for ring bands. If you want to add additional gemstones too you may want to go with a wider ring band.
Also, recognize your lifestyle when it comes to outfitting your engagement ring. If you have an active lifestyle or work with your hands frequently, you might want to contemplate a wide band. A thicker and broader band will endure wear over time and allows more protection for the center stone.
Here are some of our favorite pieces that accentuate the uniqueness of wide bands with extraordinary design and imaginative details.
