We’re about to buy wedding bands on Blue Nile, and I was wondering if anyone knows the difference between regular and comfort fit? The ring FI wants would be $200 more expensive with comfort fit, and we’re just trying to figure out if it’s worth it?
If anyone has any advice, would love to hear.

I have a comfort-fit white gold ring (not my e-ring or wedding band, another ring). It’s not from Blue Nile but I can tell that the contours of it are comfort-fit. Basically, the cross-section of the ring is rounded as opposesd to squared off, so it makes it more comfortable to wear if you’re not used to wearing jewelry.
My e-ring has rounded contours too but I don’t think it’s comfort-fit (I can’t tell for sure because the band is thin). It’s about the same level of comfort as the other ring, but I’ve had the other ring for nearly 5 years so maybe I’ve just gotten used to wearing it. For what it’s worth, my wedding band is not comfort-fit and even though I’m not wearing it yet, the times I’ve tried it on it feels comfortable enough 🙂

Idk the difference but my fi tried on a regular and comfort fit and he wanted one to and yes it was tones more i think they are smoother on the inside or something.

Blue Nile accepts returns, right? Can you order both, and just return the one you don’t like?

Perhaps you guys could go to a jewelry store and figure out which one FI likes better? He could try both on!

Go have him sized for comfort fig before you order it. My FH wears a full size smaller in CF than in a regular shaft. The contor of the ring is different. Basically a reg. shaft is flat, or even concave to the finger while the CF is more convex to the finger. I personally like the CF better, they are more comfortable, and they go on and off more easily. they dont push your skin up to your knuckle as bad when taking them off and don’t cut in. Honestly just have him sized and try it on and see what he likes the best.

If you fiance works a lot with his hands, the comfort fit is an excellant investment. It is more rounded and won’t hurt his hand/fingers. It is totally worth the extra cost.

I am in the jewelry business and have sold many wedding bands over the years. Yes, most men prefer comfort fit because, well, its more comfortable Yes, it is curved on the inside to contour to the little curve on the underside of the finger so its less awkward feeling for someone who isn’t used to wearing jewelry. They are more expensive because it takes more metal to create the curve rather than it just being flat, therefore they are generally heavier weight than non comfort fit.
I would agree with Laboroflove and say go into any store and try on the two to make sure he can tell the difference between the two before you spend the extra money.
