I don’t think so…it looks identical to my old solitaire.  I think (and I could be wrong, of course) a knife edge has a more drastic top to it…like DeathByDesign’s wedding band.

And I think they look great together!  Will look even better when your solitaire is sized Smile

It might be a really, really soft “knife edge”? My rings are knife edge, but the “edge” is much sharper… yours looks kind of like a “knife edge” that is really rounded on the “edge”.

In any case, I think your rings look great together!!

I *think* my old solitaire had the same band…I only have this pic of it without a wrap.  I never noticed if it looked different than others, because at the time the only princess cuts I ever saw were on thicker flat squared-ish bands which I didn’t like.  Then again, I’d never heard most ring talk until the Bee, so I’m always learning something new!

Your setting looks almost exactly like what I have.  I have a Vatche U-113 setting which they call a knife but it’s not a knife.  It sorta is.  I don’t know the technical term, but it’s the same setting Tiffany as the classic Tiffany setting I learned.  I was having a heck of a time finding a wedding band that didn’t look weird with it which I found odd considering how many girls have it. I finally found a shared prong band because I wanted one with some bling on it.  It had to be a low setting, which was really hard to find.  I only found 3 companies that manufactured that type of band in a setting low enough that didn’t look bulky or just didn’t align properly.  My friend got a round knife edge pave band to wear with her princess cut, but I think it looks strange on it’s own because you can see the line of the knife so prominently with the stones traveling downward so I would prefer the dome that you have.  The only thing is that the width of your dome is smaller than the width of your e-ring but I like the way it lays.  The reason I need the low setting is because i had a 2mm gap between the 2 rings.

This is the style at Tiffany (and since they don’t actually manufacture their own bands, you can buy it cheaper or get a knock off with just as high of quality) that they match with the setting.  I can’t get the picture to save because it’s not in jpeg, it’s in flash, but here is the link.

This is what it’s like with the e-ring

(if that doesn’t direct link, it’s the band on the top right on the left)

 

And this is the shared prong style that I’m getting (but not from Tiffany.  I’m not paying for a name) that matches with that setting.

I think it will look more “matching” once you have your ering sized!

I had a knife-edge but had it rounded out because it was poking into my fingers and I couldn’t close them together properly.  Yours looks softer than mine did, so if it’s comfortable, then keep it!  I think it looks great and it looks really nice with your rounded band.

My sister’s old setting (from blue nile) was not desribed as knife edge on their website, just plain solitaire ring. They have a completely separate one they advertise as knife edge, which is sharp like the one above. My sister’s was definetely a rounded knife edge, and when she went to other jewelers to get it sized, and later, to change it to fir her band, it was always told to her that it is knife edge. I belive yours is rounded knife edge, if it it wasnt called that on the website when you bought it.

It kind of looks like one, but it looks like it could also be similar to the Tiffany setting that another bee posted!  A lot of companies seem to be mocking the Tiffany settings.  I can tell you that I think your band and e-ring look really good together!  I like it.

I would think it’s a knife edge, but as @DeathByDesign: said, it looks like a softer edge.

I think its a classic setting for solitaire diamond rings.  This is the setting most jewerly enchancer will fit perfect over. Below are pictures of knife edge.. 

Hope that helps!
