We’ll discuss everything you need to know about knife edge engagement rings, along with some great examples of them if you’re on the lookout.
What is a Knife Edge Ring?
A knife edge ring refers to a specific style of band where there’s a sharp edge raised out of the center of the band. This creates an angle on each side of the ring, giving the ring a distinct appearance that you don’t get with other bands. It provides a modern look, even though the knife edge was created in the late 1800s by Tiffany & Co.
The protruding raised center of the band allows more light to be reflected off the metal. This creates an overall shinier ring with a sharp look.
The knife edge ring is the only type of ring where you will find this raised center in the band, making it very unique.

Points to Keep in Mind When Buying an Engagement Ring
So much goes into buying an engagement ring that it can be hard to remember everything. Here are the most important points.
When choosing a metal, pick one that suits both your style and budget. Platinum and gold are popular metal choices since they’re both durable and strong. Platinum is especially great if you have sensitive skin due to it being a hypoallergenic metal.
If you have a tight budget, consider opting for an engagement ring with lab diamonds. They are more affordable than earth-mined diamonds while looking the same and being of the same quality. The only difference is they are created in a lab, mimicking the same process that would happen in nature.
Always consider your personal style when picking a design for your engagement ring. You want something that you will be able to wear day in and day out without ever getting tired of it. That’s why choosing something you like is always the most important thing.
Our final tip is to only buy your engagement ring from a reputable brand. Returns and exchanges should always be easy to do if the ring isn’t what you expected. Our brand, With Clarity, does all of the above and more. With Clarity even offers at-home previews.
