Choosing the Shape of your Wedding Ring

Selecting the wedding band you'll wear for the rest of your life is no day-to-day activity. Don't panic; nobody expects you to turn up knowing your Court from your Flat Court or your Flat profile from your D-Shaped. That's why we've written a simple guide to the wedding ring profiles available to you, breaking down the intimidating jargon and making your all-important decision-making process that tiny bit easier...



Flat on the inside and curved on the outside, the D-shaped band is the most traditional wedding ring profile. This classic silhouette has earned its name due to the capital letter 'D' visible in the ring's cross-section if it were to be cut in half.



Very similar to the D-shaped profile is the Court band, which is curved slightly on the inside as well as on the outside. Otherwise known as 'almond-shaped' or the ‘comfort fit’, this inner curvature can make the ring slightly more comfortable to take on and off, and so is ideal for those who aren't used to wearing rings.




A modern take on the classic court ring, the so-called Flat Court profile boasts a sleek, shiny and flat outerface and a comfortable curved inner.



A contemporary option with the potential to look slick and industrial, the Flat profile band flaunts a smooth and levelled face both on the inner and the outer.


Of course, if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We're here to help!
