I am a serial online engagement ring hunter and my latest obsession is Tiffany&Co’s classic Tiffany setting.
I know a lot of people are against Tiffany prices and branding and I may never even get one myself, but I’m yet to come across a style like this where I like everything about the ring (even the prongs!) so just wanted to see what it looks like on real people to get idea of its real-life allure! Please share your pictures and if you dont mind carat size and ring size just as a guideline.
The main point that would be a turn off for me is the knife-edge – Ladies who have this setting, is it uncomfortable/ impractical? Of course I’d be happy to hear from non-Tiffany bees on this point as well! Thanks in advance!

@SLfairytale: Unfortunately, I do not have a picture with me, but I can say that I have never found the knife edge to be uncomfortable.

It’s very comfortable, it never sticks out or feels pointy to me.

The knife-edge has never bothered me, I find it very comfortable. I have a Tiffany princess cut, .58 carats, size 5 1/4.

Mine is not from Tiffany’s (why I’m not posting a pic), but it’s the tiffany style knife edge setting in platinum and I love the simplicity of the setting and I find no issues with comfort.

We got mine custom-made in the style of the Tiffany Classic setting. No issues with the knife edge at all.

My setting looks similar to lorelei’s (but with a princess) and I haven’t had any problems at all. Granted, I’ve only had it 3 weeks 😉 but I find it quite comfortable

I have a knife edge on my band, and it’s comfortable 🙂 I don’t feel it at all.
(My ring isn’t a Tiffany, but it is a Tiffany replica. I too, loved every-single-thing about a Tiffany ring, so I went to a few jewelers to see if they could make it for me. They did, and at a more affordable price. Just throwing that out there, if you haven’t thought of it yet. You can get replicas made by local jewelers, if money is an issue!)

I have the Tiffany Setting and the knife edge doesnt bother me at all, even though I never wore rings before getting engaged.
Here is a pic of my e-ring and w-band 🙂
Size 5,5 and 1 ct

Thanks everyone who’s replied so far! Good to know that knife edge settings haven’t been a problem for most of you. And the pics are very helpful!
@SoonToBee2013: @lorelai: what a beautiful sets you have!

Mine’s not Tiffany but it is knife-edge, it’s not uncomfortable at all. That said, because there’s little surface area touching your hand, it does move around a lot, especially if you have a larger (>0.5ct) diamond set.

When I tried on the Tiffany solitaires I found the knife edge uncomfortable. It could have been because the rings I was trying on were too big for me and a properly-fitted ring would be ok, but I didn’t want to chance it so I opted away from that style.
If you can find a knife-edge style to try on in your size this would let you know for sure if you personally would be comfortable.

Never heard of the knife edge being uncomfortable! But, if you don’t want to pay the Tiffany price, here is a good setting that looks pretty close to the Tiffany setting– and then you don’t have to pay for the name and their diamond! Just a thought 🙂

@msmagoo: Happy to ogle rings regardless of where they’re from! 🙂

@SLfairytale: Tiffany & co knife edges are actually a bit sharp. It was a little bit for me to get used to the knife edge feel in all honesty. Now am used to it. If you are going for a replica (be aware the prongs may be a little dfferent ) some of them have more rounded “knife” edges too. If I were you, I’d try on the knife edge and other styles to make sure what you are comfortable with!
Pretty rings ladies! 🙂
