Bigger is better?
Sure… If you can handle it.
Because with rings, when you go bigger, you’re really gonna need to go bigger.
For the wider the ring gets (not thickness), the bigger that ring will have to be to fit on your finger.
If you normally wear a size 10, a 6mm band (average mm width for a men’s band) will fit just fine. But if you go up to an 8mm, or a 10mm, then a size 10 just won’t fit anymore. You’ll have to increase the ring size up anywhere from 1/2 size, 1 size, or more, depending on the style, if it tapers, if it’s comfort fit, and of course, the shape of your fingers.
P.S. If you like these bands (that 10mm band is awesome and cheap), get them here:
So if you’re looking at a wider band, especially if it’s online, I would probably get a bigger size than you would normally wear.
A good guideline is here:
- 6mm = Size 10
- 7mm = Size 10.5
- 8mm = Size 10.5 – 11
- 9mm = Size 11 – 11.5
- 10mm = Size 11.5 – 12
But you should get your finger fitted…
Just to be sure.
Hop into a local jewelry store, try some wider rings on, and get your finger fitted at the same time, because ordering a ring, and getting the wrong ring size, is no fun at all.
So wider needs bigger, and that makes everyone happy.
