Thin Engagement Rings
Many engagement rings dazzle customers with large, sparkling diamonds set in wide metal bands. These rings are beautiful, to be sure, but they can look crowded and busy on smaller, more delicate fingers. So, what should you do? Try taking a look at some engagement rings with thin bands and see if you can find the right ring for your delicate sweetheart!
A Brief Rundown of Thin Band Engagement Rings
Thin band engagement rings aren’t rings that have been deprived of the beauty, diamond carat, or precious metal used to make the ring. They are simply rings with, you guessed it, thinner bands than the average ring on the market. None of the ring’s qualities are compromised, they’re just “compacted” for a smaller, but powerful, engagement ring appearance.
Reasons Some People Prefer Thin Band Engagement Rings
Flashier isn’t necessarily better to some people when it comes to engagement rings. Women who enjoy a ring with simple designs and smaller diamonds would love a thin band diamond engagement ring. A woman with smaller hands or more slender fingers would likely prefer a thinner ring because it is more proportionate. Women who work desk jobs, or jobs that don’t involve manual labor or a great deal of working with her hands in chemicals or machinery would also probably love a thin band engagement ring, as opposed to a wider, more elaborate one.
Benefits of Buying a Thin Band Engagement Ring
Not only are thin band engagement rings smaller and daintier, they’re also lower in cost, which make them easier on any budget, without sacrificing any of the quality. Thinner rings are also easier to find in-store, which means you can find a wider selection of thin rings without having them special ordered. If, however, you opt for a custom-made ring, it often takes less time to make and ship than larger rings.
Tips for Shopping for the Perfect Thin Band Engagement Ring
Remember that the band size of thin band engagement rings is no indication of carat weight. When in doubt, ask the jewelry retailer or look up the ring you want on the jewelry website on which you’re shopping. Smaller and thinner simply means condensed. Keep in mind that there are some styles of rings that may not be available in the thin band versions. Certain diamond cuts and settings may also look different on a thinner ring than one with a wider band. Again, it doesn’t mean it’s a lesser quality or in carat weight.
Also keep the hands and lifestyle of your intended in mind when doing your ring shopping. If her job or hobbies would be hard on her hands, and thus, her jewelry, a thin band engagement ring might not be the one for her.
