Bending Tradition: The Curved Wedding Rings Trend Explained

The Appeal of Curved Wedding Rings for Today's Bride

In the world of wedding rings, where tradition and innovation constantly compete for couples’ love, there's one rising trend trumping all and capturing hearts of soon-to-wed couples: curved wedding rings.

Just as solitaire engagement rings have made space for alternative designs in recent times (like coloured engagement rings), wedding rings, too, have evolved from traditional straight bands, to offering curved, pointed and pinched styles that complement a variety of both classic and modern engagement rings.

What is a curved wedding ring?

Curved wedding rings, also known as fitted or contoured wedding bands, are designed to follow the outline of an engagement ring diamond, allowing the wedding band to sit flush against the engagement ring.

Benefits of Curved Wedding Rings

Enhanced Comfort

The curved design of these women’s wedding rings can provide a more comfortable fit compared to traditional straight bands. The gentle curve conforms to the natural shape of the finger, reducing friction and irritation, especially for those with active lifestyles.

Seamless Pairing

One significant advantage of curved wedding rings is their ability to seamlessly pair with non-traditional engagement ring shapes. Whether it's a Halo, Pear, Marquise, or any other unique engagement ring, curved bands contour around the ring, creating a cohesive and harmonious look without any gaps or awkward spacing.

Gorgeous. Won't be disappointed… sparkles beautifully, nice size width, could wear it on its own. Beautiful packaging. Great customer service.

“I chose the curved pavé-set wedding band for both my wedding band and eternity ring to partner with my split band engagement ring.”

~ Wendy, Melbourne ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Visual Interest

The curved silhouette of these women’s wedding rings adds an element of distinction to any ring stack. The unique shape creates a modern and repeating pattern, proven to be a conversation starter and eye-catching display of layered sparkle.


Curved wedding bands come in a variety of styles, metal colours, and diamond setting types, allowing wearers to choose a design that reflects their personal taste and complements their engagement ring.

“Purchased the 2.3mm curved, grain set wedding band and couldn’t be happier. It complements my wedding and engagement ring perfectly. The diamonds are so white and sparkly! The photos don’t do it justice!! Dealing with Keith was a pleasure, he was very helpful with my queries. Thank you, I will be purchasing from you again in the future.”

“Love my eternity topper… I love how these rings fit together perfectly.”

~ Nikki B, Melbourne ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Like traditional wedding bands, curved diamond rings can be customised with coloured gemstones to add a personal touch, allowing wearers to create a one-of-a-kind piece that symbolises their unique love story and celebrates their individuality.

“I stumbled upon SH Jewellery on Instagram and visited their website. I have been looking for a matching diamond ring to complement my engagement ring for a while as it has a very different setting and I didn't see anything I like before that. I took the chance to place an online order for the Curved pavé-set women's diamond wedding band and was very pleased that they didn't just process my order but took the trouble to call me to check on the sizing. Eleni has been most patient and helpful in assisting me with the order and thank you for the fast delivery. The curved ring came beautifully packaged and the LED light in the box was a great element of surprise. It was as if I was viewing the ring from their showroom. Will definitely be back for more purchases. You have just earned yourself another happy customer. Thank you Xx”

Curved U-Shape Wedding Bands

Curved U-shape wedding rings have a pronounced arch in the centre resembling the letter "U". This allows the band to sit snugly against the engagement ring, especially if the engagement ring has a prominent centre stone, setting or halo. The curved U-shape creates a visually striking silhouette and adds a modern twist to classic wedding band style.

V-Shape Curved Wedding Bands

Meticulously contoured on each side to meet at a pointed, central peak, V-shaped wedding rings are ideal for optically enhancing the size of solitaire diamonds. This elegant design allows the band to curve around the centre stone or engagement ring setting, creating a seamless and complementary fit.

Pinched Centre Wedding Bands

A pinched centre wedding ring has a narrowed or "pinched" section in the middle that creates a distinctive focal point resembling an hourglass or waistline shape.
