What Is A Knife Edge Ring?

If you're ready to tie the knot and are looking for a ring that's modern and unique rather than tired and worn by everyone else, look no further than the knife edge ring, a fun kind of ring band that looks good on both men's and women's ring fingers. Why should you go with the same style that everyone else has, after all, when you deserve to stand out?

What Are Knife Edge Rings?

A knife edge ring isn't as dangerous as it might sound, though it does feature a sharp edge that goes round the outside of the band. The edge can either go around the entire outside and essentially divide the ring in two, top and bottom, or, if you're going to have a diamond in the ring, it can just occur at the front of the ring to accentuate the diamond. If you choose to have a ring with a full knife edge that goes around the entire band, you can either stick with having a symmetrical ring and have it go through the center, or, if you prefer more of a different, asymmetrical look, you can also get one that cuts across the band diagonally instead. 

Why Choose A Knife Edge?

You should go with a knife edge ring if any of the following apply to you:

  • You want your diamond to look bigger than it actually is, as the sharp edge gives the illusion of the band being smaller and more delicate, therefore making the diamond look bigger.
  • You want a more unique style. The knife edge is typically known as being a more modern and contemporary style, perfect for the modern bride or groom who wants their ring to really stand out.
  • You want a style that you can match with your partner. The knife edge looks good on both men's and women's rings, so if you want your spouse's band to match your own, that's easy enough to accomplish if you choose this style.

What To Be Aware Of 

If you're seriously considering going with a knife edge, it's important to keep the following in mind before you make the big commitment:

  • Some people find the knife edge to be uncomfortable against the fingers next to it. Some find it just fine, but others are irritated by the edge digging into their fingers. So, before you decide on this style for sure, it might be a good idea to try it out at a jewelry store beforehand to avoid buyer's remorse.
  • The band looks more delicate than other styles because, well, it is. And because it's more delicate, it's more prone to dings and scratches, so if you work with your hands a lot or are always hitting your hands on things, you might want to consider a different style unless you're okay with a few dings.
