Are 6mm rings for women? Do men’s bands only come in 8mm? Can a lady wear an 8mm tungsten ring? These are all questions we answer frequently for our customers in regards to the width of their wedding ring or casual tungsten band. And the truth is, your ring’s width is just as personal as your ring size.
But if you are still unsure what width will look best on your hand, whether it’s 6mm or 8mm, or even 4mm or 10mm, here is a quick guide:
- 8mm wide tungsten rings and cobalt ring are generally preferred by guys due to their longer fingers. But with sizes as low as 6.0, wider rings for ladies are now in vogue.
- For matching wedding sets, couples will usually get 6mm wide for the woman and 8mm wide for the man. (For more on the difference between men’s and women’s rings, see our resource page on the subject HERE.)
- 4mm is almost always a lady’s band, however, men not use to wearing jewelry or looking for a very traditional wedding band width (traditional wedding bands were 4mm to 5mm for men and women) will also wear 4mm wide rings.
- 10mm is the widest width we carry, while it’s only 2mm wider than our 8mm rings, it does look considerably wider once on your finger.
