Wedding Ring Guide

The exchange of wedding rings between husband and wife has become a traditional way to celebrate the bond between husband and wife. Today, wedding rings range in style from simple and small to large and ornate. While different cultures have their own unique traditions, the wedding ring can be found in various forms all over the world.

Comfort Fit Wedding Rings

When you shop for wedding bands, you'll be asked lots of questions about what you're looking for. One question will probably be, "Do you want comfort fit or regular fit?" Do you know the difference?
Comfort fit bands are designed with a rounded inside so they slide on easier and sit on your finger more comfortably, as the name suggests. There are degrees of comfort fit, as well. "Light comfort fit" may only be very slightly rounded on the inside, "heavy comfort fit" will be a very thick (from inside to outside) band, and then the regular comfort fit is somewhere in between.
Comfort fit, or internally round, bands are definitely more comfortable for people who have to frequently remove their rings, and for people who are not used to wearing rings, so they are especially popular among men. Because comfort fit rings are thicker from inside to out, they have more metal content than standard rings and may be much more expensive. Regular "half-round" rings don't have the luxurious feel of a comfort fit band, but the truth is that once the ring is on your finger, you don't feel much of a difference.
No matter what you're wearing, if it's on your finger for the rest of your life, eventually you get used to it. It's up to you to decide if the extra cost of a comfort fit band is worth it to you.
