What are the wedding ring profiles?
The profile, or the shape, of a wedding ring is determined by looking at the cross section of a ring. The idea is that if you were to cut through a wedding band, the profile is the shape that you would see. If the inner or outer surface is curved, then the band is known as a ‘court’, whereas those with flat surfaces and a straight appearance are simply known as ‘flat’.
When it comes to choosing a wedding ring, there is actually more to consider than most people realise. Once you have an idea of the style of your wedding ring, then the metal and size of your band also comes into play. The profile also has a strong emphasis on the band style of an engagement ring, such as the shape, colour, size and overall aesthetic and feel. If you are looking to nicely pair your engagement and wedding rings, then these are all important factors to consider. Your choice of profile for your wedding ring is a completely individual decision, and ultimately comes down to personal style, comfort and price range.
