Width and Size Of Titanium Wedding Band
Could you please tell me if you would take the same size in a titanium wedding band as you would in a gold wedding band, or should it be larger or smaller? Also, can you suggest a proper width for a size 12 wedding band? Thank you.
Titanium wedding bands are the same standard sizes as other types of wedding bands (e.g. gold, palladium, platinum, silver etc.) - so, if you take a size 12 in a gold wedding band you would take a size 12 in a titanium wedding band.
The width of titanium rings ranges from around 2 to 15 millimeters. Ladies titanium wedding rings are generally 2 to 5 mm in width, while men's titanium wedding rings are usually between 8-10 mm wide.
A ring size 12 is a tad bit larger than the average men's wedding ring size - which is a 10 - and if you have large hands or large fingers than in most cases the larger width bands tend to look better than the smaller width bands.
I think a 10 mm titanium band would suit your finger size just fine (if you have a centimeter ruler, 10 mm is equal to 1 cm), but you could also probably go up to a 12 if you are looking for a larger width size wedding ring.
If are shopping for titanium rings online, and you are unsure of how the width size will look on your finger, visit a local jewelers and compare how wedding bands in the same width look - or you could cut a long piece of paper 1 cm or wider and wrap it around your ring finger.
I hope this info helps - and do write back again if you have additional questions.

Where to Find Size 16 Titanium Ring
Hi.I am looking for men's wedding titanium or stainless steel wedding bands size 16. I am having a most difficult time finding larger sized rings. Do you have any recommendations? - Thanks, Dawn
I can see where it would be challenging to find rings in a size 16! Most retailers and designers of men's wedding rings go up to around a 13 to 14 ring size - but a 16 needs to be specially ordered.
In this case, your best option is to go with a jeweler who can handcraft a ring for you. I do not know of any jewelers who create stainless steel rings in a size 16, but I do have a recommendation for a size 16 titanium wedding band and that is Minter & Richter. They have a huge selection of titanium ring designs, and they will create any of their designs up to a size 17.
However, because the rings are made to order they do not offer any returns on the rings. Make sure a size 16 is definitely the right size before you order. Measure the finger size at least twice during the late afternoon/early evening hours to confirm a 16 is the perfect fit.
You can find Minter & Richter through their Etsy shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MinterandRichterDes. Through Etsy, you may also find additional jewelers who can handcraft titanium wedding bands in your size.
Good luck on your search - and if you do order a Minter & Richter ring, do send us a pic if you get a chance : )
