Choose your ring profile

A ring’s profile refers to the shape of the metal band. When choosing your wedding rings, one of the first things to think about is the kind of profile you’d like. 

There is a wide variety of styles to choose from, including court, flat court, D-shape and bombé profiles. When choosing your ring profile, it’s important to think about which shape will be most comfortable to wear, as well as which style will suit you best. It’s also important to think of how your wedding band will sit alongside your engagement ring, if you wear one. If you have a tricky-shaped engagement ring, don’t worry – we can create a bespoke band to fit neatly around your existing ring. 

For men, our most popular styles are court, flat court and bombé styles, usually measuring at 4-5 mm in width. For women, our most popular orders are for court style rings, often featuring a half or full-set of diamonds. 

Here’s a full list of our wedding band profiles, including heavier premium styles for a little added luxury. 

Choose your metal

One of the most important decisions facing wedding ring shoppers is which precious metal you’d like to adorn your finger. For centuries, yellow gold and white gold were the most popular options, but recent years have seen trends shift to include other metals, such as rose gold and platinum. If you wear one, it’s important to think about which metal will best complement your engagement ring. To preserve the quality of your wedding and engagement rings, you’ll also need to make sure they’re the same grade of metal. 

To make things easier for you, we’ve laid out the different types of metal available for our wedding rings, including details about their colour, pricing and maintenance.

Choose your band width

Choose your band width

Another thing you’ll need to think about when choosing your wedding rings is the width of the bands. This is entirely down to personal preference, but most people tend to choose a size that suits their finger. If you have a slender finger, you might prefer a smaller band. If you have a broader finger, you might suit a larger size. It’s for this reason that men usually opt for larger rings. 

Our rings are available in a wide range of sizes, ranging from 2mm up to 8mm.

Choose your finish 

Your ring’s finish will determine whether you have an eye-catching shiny band or an understated, matte look. 

At Charles Fish, we have two distinct finishes available:

Before choosing a satin-brushed finish, it’s important to consider the maintenance required with this type of ring. Although it’s commonly assumed that brushed rings will hide scratches, they actually show marks more easily than polished rings. They also can’t be easily polished – to treat marked brushed rings, they need to be entirely refinished. 

Make it your own 

Simple and understated, or adorned with diamonds? Whatever your taste, there’s a wedding ring for you.

From gemstones and diamond sets to engraved messages, the options for customisation are endless. 

If you’re looking for a plain wedding ring, you’re all done! All you need to do next is choose the right size.

But if you’re interested in personalising your ring even further, here are some of the ways you can make your wedding ring unique to you. 

Add an engraving

Usually requested for the inside of the ring, engravings give you the chance to personalise your wedding band with a message of love only your partner can see. Whether it’s a simple ‘I love you’, a nickname or a secret joke only the two of you will understand, engravings are the perfect way to create a ring that’s truly one of a kind.
