General Inquiries

Most of the wedding rings on WeddingBands.com are comfort fit. That means the edges are round on the inside of the ring, where it touches the skin. This allows for the ring to slide on easier. Non-comfort fit rings have a straight edge on the inside. You can find an image of the two types of ring here: Comfort fit vs. Non-Comfort Fit

Ring Sizing

You can request a free ring sizing kit from us, by clicking Here. We highly recommend requesting our kit to get the best size based on our measurements. If you do not have time to receive the kit, an alternative is to go to a local jeweler and get your ring finger sized. Here are a few tips to keep in mind to make sure you are getting the correct size. Remember that WeddingBands.com does offer quarter sizes so take that into consideration when trying on the sizing kit. Look at the ring that fits you best and personally read the size marked on that specific ring, i.e. Marked 6 (is size 6) or marked 6- or 6 1/2 [is size 6.5]. Try on a few rings in the store, particularly ones that are the same millimeter width and similar style, if possible. A band 8.0mm wide or wider may require a quarter [1/4] size increase to ensure the correct fit. We recommend trying on both a comfort fit and a non-comfort fit to see the difference, and to find your preference.
There are a few things to keep in mind when trying to size your ring perfectly The ring should go on easily. The ring should feel comfortable on your finger. It should come off with a little resistance. If you think you're between our half sizes, don't fret, we offer quarter sizes on all our rings on WeddingBands.com.
We do offer quarter sizes for individuals with in between ring sizes (i.e. 7.25). You can select the sizes while looking at the products.
We have a helpful International Sizing Chart to help convert your measurement to our American measurement. The chart is located under Information, on the left side of the page. Click on Ring Sizing Chart , and convert your international size to our standard size.
If the wedding ring you ordered does not fit your finger size, you can return it once within Thirty (30) days from the date shipped to be sized or exchanged for the proper size. Just specify your correct finger size. If you need a size change after the thirty (30) days, you can still get the correct size but there may be an additional charge. You always have the ability to get the ring sized at any time.

Manufacturing

We manufacture every ring to order to ensure you get a ring that's new and never been worn by anyone. You wouldn't go to a restaurant expecting to be served something that's been sitting out for display. You shouldn't with your wedding ring either. After all you're paying for a ring that will be YOURS forever, and not for something that's been sitting in a warehouse or jewelry store for months being tried by dozens of people. To help you better plan the time needed for your ring to be manufactured, please use the following guide. Plain Rings take 1-2 business days to manufacture. Handcrafted, classic, hand-carved, and diamond wedding rings take 4-6 business days to manufacture. Designer and contemporary can take up to 7 business days to manufacture.
We manufacture our rings using a variety of materials and continue to look to offer even more variety. As of now, we offer 14 KT white and yellow gold, 18 KT white and yellow gold, platinum, palladium, titanium, tungsten, cobalt chrome, and combinations.

If you have any requests about a ring style that you would like in a different metal, please contact us. We'll be more than glad to help you with all your requests.
None of our rings are hollow or plated. We manufacture using solid materials, and pride ourselves with using the finest material, and newest manufacturing techniques to bring you the highest quality product for the lowest price possible.
You can find a sample of the different finishes here: Ring Finishes. At WeddingBands.com, we can finish the ring in three different ways. The polished finish is shiny, reflective, and glossy. There are no marks on the band and the metal is polished to a reflective shine. The brush finish has a textured finish; which look like tiny-brush like marks on the ring. It is not a shiny finish and has a dull look. The matte finish is a satin and smooth finish. It is dull and looks like fogged up window. You will not have any reflective look.
