How to choose an appropriate width of your ring?
Someone prefers wide, thicker and sturdy ring and the other one prefers very gentle, comfortable and discreet ring that would not disturb his/her daily routine. It is necessary to choose a good proportion between ring size, width and thickness of the ring. There is not any general guide.
Width of the ring
Standard width is somewhere between 3 and 7 mm but some types of rings can be made also narrower or wider. The minimal unit of width is 0.5 mm. So, we can make the ring 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, … mm wide.
For rings made of damasteel we recommend making them with a width 3 mm and more. The wider your ring will be, the more pattern will be visible and your ring will be more unique.
We can make the ring also asymmetric. The ring can be wider on the top part and narrower in the lower part (in a palm). The head of this ring is wider and more sturdy. The ring with this shape is more comfortable and distinctive. It is suitable for rings with a gem or pearl. The proportion between width of the head and width of lower part has to be adequate otherwise the ring would rotate on the finger.
Because our rings are handmade there can be some small deviation in sizes - our margin for this handmade work is 0.2 mm.
