Styles & Profiles


PROFILES:

The profile refers to the shape of the ring.  Most rings are approximately 2.2mm in thickness; exceptions are noted below.

When you click on the photo or title it will take you to a photo and description of a ring in that profile.


Domed Comfort Fit Band and Half Round Band:
  Domed band with slightly lower dome than half round bands with dome on inside of ring.  Half round band have a slightly higher dome than a comfort fit band and is flat on the inside of the band. Without rails available in width of 3mm to 9mm; with rails available 5mm to 10mm.

 

Flat and Flat Comfort Fit Band: Outside of ring is flat.  No dome and square sides.  Flat comfort fit has dome on the inside of the ring. Without rails available in width of 3mm to 9mm; with rails available 5mm to 10mm.

 

Canyon Band: Canyon bands are only offered as etched rings requiring a metal combination that contains sterling silver.  6mm to 8mm widths.

 

 

Channel Style Ring:  Rails and liner is a one-piece band with beveled sides with mokume set in a channel cut in the middle of the band.  6mm to 9mm widths.  Channel rings are approximately 2.4mm to 2.5mm in thickness, with at least 1.5mm thickness of mokume

 

 



 

Integral Half Bezel Ring: The width of an integral half bezel ring is determined by the width of the stone being set.  The width where the stone is set is the same as the stone being set.  For instance a 0.5 carat diamond is approximately 5mm wide, making the ring 5mm wide at the top.  The ring is then tapered to a more narrow width as it goes down the band (generally about 30%).   

The thickness of the band is also determined by the size of the stone.  The top of the band is thicker than normal bands to accommodate the setting of the stone.  The thickness of the band is tapered as it goes around the band.  No rails.  The size of the stone changes the dimensions of the ring.

Three-quarter round (3/4) Ring:  Rounder and thicker than a comfort fit band (app. 2.7mm in thickness).  No rails; always 3.5mm in width.
