@Future_Mrs_Dr_I:  My SIL’s ring is like that, her DH had it custom made.  I’d assume more brides don’t have them because like you said they’re not readily available in stores and if you want it custom done it’s probably expensive!

@Future_Mrs_Dr_I:  I can’t answer your question about it’s popularity, but I don’t really like it at all. :/

I believe they are referred to as “euro shanks”… I really like them too! My 18kt gold rings end up getting bent on the bottom like that anyways!

@Future_Mrs_Dr_I:  well I imagine its not popular for women bc the shape wouldn’t match any ering I’ve seen.

The guy who made my rings gives you an option for a stirrup band on all his rings. They are super comfortbale and they dont spin…..but I still went traditional!

Well for one, rings with Euro shanks tend to be more expensive because they require more metal. They are also more expensive to resize.

Second, those in particular are quite ugly in my opinion. I’ve seen rings with Euro shanks on the bottom, but never the top. The ones with just the bottom like that are nice and they’re comfortable.

I would imagine it wouldn’t match up with most people’s e-rings. It looks more like a man’s ring to me.

@Future_Mrs_Dr_I:  I just know Euro shanks look similar but these rings are different since it’s on the top and the bottom. No idea if these have a specific name.

My jeweler told me it’s more expensive to work with them because it requires more metal. Not sure if that’s true for every jeweler though.

@mrspinesol:  Me neither. Maybe it’s the “squareness” of it that I’m not a fan of
