    What Defines a Wide Ring?

    Let's start off by understanding exactly what makes a wide ring, well, wide! Depending on who you ask, a wide wedding ring can range anywhere between 7 mm and 15+ mm wide. Here at Rockford Collection we’re a bit more selective with our ring categories. We define any ring over 10 millimeters (or 1 cm) as a “wide ring”.

    Why do people wear wide rings?

    There are many reasons as to why an individual would want a wide ring! Firstly, wide rings are more durable and can withstand more daily wear than a dainty, thin ring. As an added bonus, wide wedding bands provide more space for customizations. Add larger diamonds, include your initials, and even leave room for a secret engraving, the options are endless when you have a wide wedding ring.

    Who Should Wear A Wide Ring?

    Wide rings look great on everybody. You can wear your wide ring alone, or stacked with thinner rings from your collection if stacking is your thing. We’ve found that wide rings are especially comfortable for individuals with a larger build, after all, big bones require big stones.

    Things to Keep in Mind Before Buying a Wide Ring

    • When ordering your wide gold or platinum ring, be aware that your wide band will fit differently than a thin ring. This is why Rockford Collection designed the first ever wide ring sizer on the market- to deliver the most accurate sizing for our unique rings.
    • As always, solid gold and platinum rings should be worn with care. If you want a ring you can really be active in, check out our Atomic Silicone Diamond Ring collection.
    • Wide rings are for a specific lifestyle, so be certain that you want a wide ring and that it will be comfortable for you to wear everyday. Thickness, stone choice, metal type, and stone weight are all factors that can affect how your ring will feel on your hand.
