When you get sized in the jewelry store, you get a standard ring size, which is a size that should be considered shopping for fine rings. If you shop for fashion jewelry, alternative wedding bands made from tungsten, cobalt, and titanium, it is recommended to get sized for comfort fit, or if you do not know your comfort fit ring size, it is usually a half size smaller from your standard ring size.
Comfort Fit Rings
All alternative wedding bands are comfort fit. Comfort fit bands are the most popular choice of wedding bands for women, men, and couples alike. They are classy, stunning, and most importantly comfortable to wear. It is easy to put it on and to take off because of its convex curve.

For instance if your standard ring size is 13, your comfort fit ring size will be 12.5.
Not all comfort fit rings run a half size smaller. It depends on the width of the ring and the width of the knuckle. If ring is in 6 mm, and 8 mm width it is better to go with half size smaller from your standard ring size. If ring is in 10 mm, 12 mm width then it is recommended go with the standard ring size. Also if the knuckle is narrow, then a half size smaller should fit well. If the knuckle is wide, then it is suggested to stay with the standard ring size.
