Wedding bands are symbols of everlasting love and commitment. While they serve the same purpose for both men and women, the styles, designs, and considerations differ.
Here’s a closer look at the three distinct characteristics of men’s and women’s wedding bands.
1. Width & Thickness
The most obvious difference is probably the size of the wedding band.
Men’s wedding bands tend to be broader and thicker than women’s. This is often due to the larger size of most men’s fingers. The standard width for men’s rings usually ranges between 6mm to 8mm.
As for women’s wedding bands, they are generally more delicate and narrower, ranging from 2mm to 4mm in width. This complements the usually more intricate designs found on women’s rings.

2. Design & Detailing
Besides the size difference, the design of men’s and women’s wedding bands vary as well.
Men’s bands are traditionally more straightforward and crafted in a simple, unembellished design such as the Starlit Shore Wedding Band. For those who prefer a pop of colour, opt for the Momento Love Swirl Rose Gold Wedding Band. Wedding rings with subtle textures like the SK 916 Oberon Gold Ring, or even mixtures of metal colours like the True Love Evermore Wedding Band are also getting popular amongst grooms. Some men may also choose to complement their wedding band with their engagement ring for a stylish stack.
Meanwhile, women’s wedding rings typically feature unique designs, such as the tiled Love That Lasts Diamond Wedding Band, crossed Momento Infinite Love Spark Rose Gold Diamond Wedding Band, and duotone Jill-Rene Unity Dainty Duotone Wedding Band. Pair your wedding ring with matrimonial gifts like your Si Dian Jin set or everyday jewellery such as diamond earrings or diamond bracelets.
Although less common than in women’s bands, men’s wedding rings sometimes feature diamonds or other gemstones in a solitary stone like the Devotion Enfold Wedding Band and Valoran Classic Diamond Ring.
Women’s bands, especially those designed to accompany engagement rings, often come with intricate designs featuring embedded diamonds, such as the Stardust Eternity Diamond Ring and Timeless Sparkle Eternity Diamond Ring.
