Ladies, I need advice. Recently I picked an engagemt ring and it was custom made. I always wanted a pave ring but tried on a knife edge solitair and fell in love with it. I was super excited to be picking rings, and at the time of choosing the ring, I don’t think I thought about it clearly. I read a few boards on here with bees complaining that a knife edge is not comfortable. I am now totally freaking out since I didn’t even think about that in the store… I can’t remember how it even felt thanks to all my excitement. My bf will propose any day now and I’m really upset at the thought of the ring being uncomfortable to wear. I would never ask him to change it because it was such a pain in the butt even getting to this point in our relationship (I have been waiting 6.5 years and he originally didn’t even believe marriage is important). What do I do???

Hi there! Here is a thread about the knife-edge style.
I think it’s really about the way you feel about jewelry. If you wear rings a lot like I do, I’m sure your ring will be just fine. I’ve tried on a knife-edge before and it felt like a normal ring to me. The only rings I’ve ever found to be uncomfortable are eternity bands that have prongs, no thanks!
Try going to a jewelry store and ask to try on a knife-edge setting and move it around on your hand and see how it feels when you make a fist, have your fingers touch, or stretch out your hand and get a feel for it. It may just take getting used to. I’m sure it’ll all work out! 🙂

I wouldn’t worry too much about it untill you actually get your ring. you may find that it is quite comfortable or you probably get used to it.

Pinksterooni: The only time I’ve ever noticed my ring is when my hands are squeezed together, like if I were shaking someone’s hand. (which you don’t with your left hand anyway). My band is rounded so I never notice it, but even when I wore a flat square edge like ring it never bothered me. Unless your fingers are constantly smushed together, I wouldn’t worry about it not being comfortable. Me personally I’m not a fan of knife edge becuase I want my rings to be flush, but it is a nice style.

I have a pave ring and even that was uncomfortable the first week or so. I think any ring on any finger will feel odd at first and then you get used to it.

It may bother you a bit at first, but I’m sure you’ll get used to it. My rings have some raised engraving on them and for about the first week I found it really noticeable and it bothered me a bit. Once I developed calluses I didn’t notice it at all. Don’t worry about something you can’t do anything about right now, and may not even be a problem.
