What is a D-shaped wedding ring?
D shaped wedding rings feature a flat inner surface with a domed outer face. Put simply, the cross-section of the ring appears with the same shape as the letter “D”.
Variations of a D-shaped band
Most variations of this wedding ring style provide different thicknesses. As such most styles fall into light, medium or heavyweight alternatives. In addition, some styles provide a curved comfort fit. As such, some styles curve slightly within the ring whilst maintaining the distinctive D-shaped profile.
Medium Weight D shaped Wedding Band
Style reference – Bembridge
Depth approx. 1.4mm. Available in most widths, metals and finger sizes.
The Bembridge wedding ring design features a medium-weight band. In fact, this remains our most popular D-shaped band for many grooms. The design lends itself well to most precious metals and can be easily engraved with a choice of decorative effects, including wording, dates, fingerprints or even a heartbeat.
Heavy D Shaped Wedding Band
Style reference – Kingston
Depth approx. 1.65mm. Available in most widths, metals and finger sizes.
Heavy-weight versions of this design suit buyers in search of a dense, robust and substantial domed ring design. We create this wedding ring in almost every wedding ring metal. For example, Platinum, White Gold, Yellow Gold. Rose Gold and Titanium. Deeper bands suit diamond settings. For this reason, we recommend heavyweight bands for the addition of diamonds.
The D-shaped band with a comfortable fit
Style reference – Cranmore
Depth 1.8mm. Available in most widths, metals and finger sizes.
Most D shaped bands feature a flat inner surface. In contrast, the Cranmore design features a curved comfort fit. As a result, the ring glides easily onto the finger and across the knuckle. This domed wedding ring provides a deep, rounded wedding ring available in most precious metals, widths and finger sizes. The term D shaped court can also be applied to this same design.

We feature most of our plain wedding ring styles on the Serendipity Diamonds website. In addition, we have more information on different wedding ring profiles.

As we already noted, most wedding rings vary in their shape and style. In fact, different designs vary in their fit—even in the exact same size. For this reason, we recommend trying on different designs.
For women, we recommend narrower bands. For example, 2.5mm wide rings. Alternatively, styles with a 3mm width. However, for engraved bands, wider styles provide more space for engravings. With this in mind, we provide many special engraving effects. For example, fingerprints or heartbeat engravings. At the same time, we also diamond set rings, mixed with patterns and engravings.
D-shaped means that a wedding ring features a flat inner surface with a domed outer face. In simple terms, the cross-section of the ring appears with the same shape as the letter “D”.
Court wedding rings feature a slight curvature to the outer and inner surfaces. In contrast, D-shaped bands curve on the outer face with a flat inner surface.
D-shaped ring designs with a slightly curved comfort fit provide more comfort than traditional D shaped bands. For this reason, we create specific styles (see above) with a comfort fit.
Example of a D shape band with a fingerprint
In the following video, we added a client’s fingerprint to a D shaped band. We recommend a medium weight design (see Bembridge above) but provide all the help and artwork to achieve this unique look on any wedding ring.
