At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler we always suggest to our clients that a comfort fit ring shank is a great option.
Rings are available in two different styles - comfort or standard fit. The comfort fit rings have a slight curve to the interior, which makes it very comfortable to wear as well as take on and off of your finger. A comfort fit ring also weighs more than a standard fit, which will add to the longevity of the ring. Comfort fit rings may also cost a bit more, but the investment is a wise one.
We have a display set that we use to showcase wedding bands so that clients can try on both comfort fit bands and standard fit bands. The process of trying on different bands also helps you feel the difference in wearing different ring widths. This display easily shows you the differences between half round with no comfort fit, half round with comfort fit, flat comfort fit and flat non-comfort fit. This helps makes the decision process easy, once you have tried on these different style shanks.
The illustration below called Ring Profiles shows you the differences between different styles of shanks. A shank is the part of the ring that goes around your finger. The illustration points out the variations in width, height/thickness, outside and inside width and height. Note the differences in the inside profiles. There are four variations of inside profiles for a ring - light comfort fit, comfort fit, heavy comfort fit and scooped. A shank can come in many different widths and could be tapered to the back of your finger for more comfort. If you have a larger knuckle, a comfort fit band makes it easier to take the ring on and off. Comfort fit can also reduce the discomfort caused when removing a ring over a large knuckle.
At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler we actually know how to size ring so they fit properly. Using a comfort fit shank is a great option for making a ring more comfortable for the long term.
Not only wedding bands come in comfort fit. At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler, when we work on custom ring projects we recommend a comfort fit as it just makes for a nicer and more comfortable jewelry wearing experience.
