If you’ve been looking for a tungsten ring on TungstenWorld.com, you’ve likely read all about our 1/2 size drop recommendation for sizing, and might be wondering why you’d want to change your size. But just like getting the perfect pair of shoes, sizing is an art.
Ever tried on a ring that fit but was a pain getting over your knuckle? Or worse a wedding band that’s edges felt like they were cutting into your finger? Likely, you had a standard fit ring. With its flat interior, standard fit rings are used for many traditional style bands and are also the sizing method used at jewelry stores on their large sizing ring.
Now, imagine a durable men’s wedding band that slides over your knuckle with ease and is comfortable on your finger 24 hours a day; that’s a comfort fit sized ring, and the sizing method all tungsten rings come in.
With their rounded interior, the inside of a comfort fit band is like an upside down “U”. When sizing these rings, the correct way to read the size if from the interior’s highest point, or the center of the “U”, which means the edges will taper to a slightly larger size. Because of this, tungsten rings in similar size to comfort fit rings will feel slightly larger than their standard fit equivalent, hence our recommendation to go down a half a size from your standard fit sizing.
Sizing can be difficult because it’s so personal, everyone’s fingers are different and while Tungsten World carries the largest arrays of whole and half sizes online, finding the wedding band that fits just right can be a bit of a struggle. We’re here to give you the best advice for obtaining your comfort fit ring size for your tungsten ring or even cobalt chrome band. But even if your ring doesn’t fit, we’ve still got you covered with our industry-best 45-day Perfect Policy.
