Guide to determining wedding band ring size. Tungsten rings are a unique choice for a wedding band or fashion ring due to the incredible, indestructible nature of the metal. Tungsten carbide rings come in various shapes and finishes to accommodate absolutely every shopper. The following is a carbide ring fit guide to educate shoppers on the many choices retailers have to offer.
Comfort Fit: Comfort fit rings have a contoured inner surface. This design usually slides much easier on the finger and it’s more comfortable than a flat straight fit wedding band. The fact that comfort fit bands are about 1/4 size larger than traditional straight fit rings, manufacturing compensates that ring size difference and in many cases you should not need to order 1/2 size down than your normal ring size.
Dome: The Dome or half round tungsten ring is the most classic wedding band style. The ring has a sleek round design that is comfortable as it is beautiful.
Pipe or Flat Cut: A men’s pipe cut tungsten ring is a unique design where the ring is flat against your finger with slightly rounded edges for comfort. This fit is meant to resemble a cut pipe. Flat, pipe cut rings are an extremely masculine design.
Beveled: A beveled edge is a slanted edge on both sides completely circling the ring. The slanted edge is typically 2mm-4mm in width on both sides depending on the primary width of the ring.
Step Down: Step down edge tungsten rings have a flat, pipe design with an edge the steps down.
Whichever design you choose, this guide can help decide which fit would be best for you. When looking for tungsten ring retailers look for companies that offer a lifetime warranty and belong to associations such as the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
