Wedding Band Widths

Wedding band widths are measured in millimeters (mm) and Hitched offers men’s wedding bands in 4mm to 8mm width sizes and women's wedding bands in 1mm to 3mm width sizes. Not all widths look or feel the same, and they even look differently on different size hands, so follow our guidelines to help you decide on the best width.

Comparing Men's Wedding Band Widths

Thin wedding bands are 4mm wide. 4mm men's wedding bands look great on the man who has smaller hands and are perfect for someone who is not used to wearing a ring. Thin wedding bands are lighter in weight, fit looser and at times more comfortably than thick bands. 4mm wedding bands are less expensive, as they use less metal.

The average width size for a men’s wedding band is 6mm and is suitable for most grooms. When in doubt, go with a 6mm wedding band. 6mm rings make a nice visual statement, without being too flashy.  They are comfortable, easy to wear and tend to look good on on hands of all sizes, no matter what they are made of.

Thick wedding bands are 8mm wide. They look great on the man who has larger hands. They are visually impactful for the man looking to make a statement with his ring and are perfect for men with a ring size of 12 or more. 8mm rings tend to feel tighter than the more narrow widths and are more commonly purchased in modern metals.
