Wedding Ring Weights

A wedding ring is traditionally a simple band of gold, but even this simple band comes in a variety of weights. Usually men wear heavier rings while women wear lighter, thinner rings. These rings will have names such as Heavy Weight, Extra Heavy Weight and Light Weight.

Heavier rings are usually more durable; many couples choose platinum for this reason as well as its rarity and beauty.

Wedding ring widths

At Ernest Jones we also offer a range of different widths, ranging from 2mm to 8mm wide so we are sure you will find a ring perfect for you.
