juski:  I just saw your beautiful ring on my thread 🙂 I don’t have any experience with knife-edge bands, but I’ll suggest a couple bands that I personally think would look nice with your engagement ring. Think of them as inspiration pictures 😛 Let me know if you like any of them so I can help you out more 🙂

juski:  Your ring is gorgeous!!!!! I really like that next to last one! I think a thinner band would look nice. And I am such a fan of the milgrain detail!

juski:  I’m glad I could help 🙂 I found most of these bands on Etsy and BrilliantEarth.com. My next suggestions would be to try antique stores, pawn shops, or local jewelers that would carry the styles you’re interested in and try some on 🙂

juski:  I think a thin milgrain band would go perfectly with ering. But then again I may be biased. My ering is a flat cut and a half domed milgrain band is what I chose. You could possibly go a bit thinner than my band.

OP, your engagement ring is gorgeous, and I think it would look great with a knife-edge band. 

I have a knife-edge band with a non-knife-edge engagement ring.  Our engagement rings are pretty different, but they both have squared-off shoulders, and the side views share some similarities.  What I like about the knife-edge is that, because the ring recedes from view where it is closest to the engagement ring, it looks like there is a gradual transition to the gap.  I’ve found that bands with squared-off shoulders look bulky next to my engagement ring in part because the transition to the gap is sudden.  For reference, my ring is a 2 mm palladium knife-edge band from Ritani (which suprisingly had the best price).  Here is a top view:<br />

My knife-edge band has a fairly low profile, as you can see in the two side views:

My only complaint is that the thin knife-edge band is not a look I like by itself.  It looks unsubstantial.  If you share my tastes, maybe you could get a knife-edge to go with the engagement ring, and one of those beautiful engraved bands to wear alone when you don’t want to wear your whole set. 

I hope this is helpful!
