The profile is the cross-section of a wedding band and has a strong emphasis on the style of ring. The idea is, if you were to cut through the band the profile is the shape you would see. The shape can most easily be illustrated by cutting an imaginary line through the band, like on the image below.
If an inner or outer surface is curved, then it’s known as a ‘court’. Flat surfaces are simply called that - ‘flat’ - as are the edges when they have a straight appearance.
There are many different profiles on offer for wedding rings, but the decision you make comes down to personal taste. For ladies the profile will be influenced by the band shape of theengagement ring.
