A fitted or shaped wedding band is designed to follow the contours of your engagement ring, so that the two rings fit closely together to form a perfect union. The design of your engagement ring determines the style of wedding band that can be worn next to it. You will need a fitted or shaped wedding band if your engagement ring has curved or usually shaped band, or if the stone settings extend past the edges of the band and would prevent a straight wedding band from sitting next to it.
Why not just wear a straight wedding band? Simple, a fitted wedding band will look better. Not only will a fitted wedding band look better, it will also help to prevent wear and tear on your engagement ring. A wedding band that is not designed to fit your engagement ring could rub and wear away at the points that it touches.
What shapes can we make? Fitted wedding bands can be made to fit almost any engagement ring, from traditional solitaires to unusual asymmetric and sculptural rings. Many of our own engagement rings fit into these categories so we are well practiced! To make our fitted wedding bands we use traditional goldsmithing techniques, such as forging and hammering alongside modern technology.
Here are some examples of fitted engagement and wedding ring sets from our collections, along with some more unusual bespoke fitted wedding rings from past commissions. We hope you will find inspiration here, and if you would like to find out more, please get in touch for a chat.
