Knife Edge Engagement Rings

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

There are so many different engagement ring options that it can be difficult to know where to begin when looking for the perfect piece of jewelry. A good rule of thumb is to consider the style that works best for you, and if you want a ring that is contemporary and sleek (without deviating too far from a classic), a knife edge engagement ring could be ideal. Knife edge engagement rings are a stunning and distinctive option that stands out while remaining traditional.

What Exactly Is a Knife-Edged Engagement Ring?

A knife edge ring, as the name implies, has a sharp edge protruding from the center of the band, creating an angled shape on each side.

The raised center of a knife edge band gives it a distinct appearance that a wider band does not have. Although the style has been around for a long time, this can make it appear more modern and fresh. Tiffany & Co. invented the knife edge engagement ring, which has been popular since the late 1800s.

The Benefits and Drawbacks of Knife Edge Engagement Rings

One of the advantages of a knife edge engagement ring is its versatility. They look both modern and classic, and they go with almost any type of center stone and other embellishments. Furthermore, this band style complements any center stone. A knife edge engagement ring creates the illusion that the band is thinner and the center stone is larger. It gives the ring a more distinct, yet timeless appearance.

This ring is thinner than other bands and is ideal for stacking. This makes it an excellent choice for pairing with wedding bands and non-wedding rings.

Fortunately, there aren't many drawbacks to knife edge engagement rings. Those who are not used to wearing rings may find the sharper edge in the middle of the band uncomfortable.

What to Look for in a Knife Edge Engagement Ring

Are you considering purchasing a knife edge engagement ring? Here is everything you need to know.

  • What stone cut complements knife edge engagement rings the best?

    One of the most appealing aspects of these rings is their versatility. They complement all stone shapes and cuts and are typically set in a 4 or 6 prong setting.

  • What metals complement knife-edge engagement rings the best?

    Platinum and gold are extremely durable and strong metals.

  • What is the price of knife edge engagement rings?

    Knife edge rings are comparable in price to other solitaire styles. The price is determined by the thickness of the band, the stone setting, and the amount of metal used.

  • Are knife edge engagement rings difficult to care for?

    Knife edge rings are low-maintenance as long as they don't have any pavé set stones. They are extremely comfortable to wear and can be worn all day.

How to Take Care of an Engagement Ring with a Knife Edge

Knife edge rings, like most other engagement rings, require the same level of care. Avoiding impact on hard surfaces, gripping items with force, or applying strong pressure to the jewelry or your hands when wearing jewelry can help reduce the risk of damage. Clean them with warm water and dish soap, or take your ring to a jeweler to have it professionally cleaned.
