A domed ring is also known as a bulbous ring. It is a very popular ring style which makes a bold statement on the hand. This domed ring is accented with twist wire bands making the ring even broader. That has a tendency to elongate the finger. The ring has an inner sleeve and is made up of five bands. The desired ring size must be taken into consideration from the start.
