I find it uncomfortable but I also find my “comfort fit” RHR uncomfortable too so I’m not a good judge, I just find rings to be like bras…you want to wear them out of the house but they aren’t comfortable and are a relief to take off when you get back to your house lol

I have a knife edge ring (my grandmother’s wedding band) and I don’t find it to be a problem. It’s not a severe knife edge but it’s definitely there.  The milgrain when it spins is more bothersome.  I do have fairly thin fingers though so there is space between them except when clenched.

I was really concerned when I ordered a knife edge set. Surprisingly, it turned out to be THE most comfortable rings for me. I knew that right away and might be inclined to trust your first impression. I doubt a knife edge would be easy “to get used to”. Mine has a severe edge and prefer how it makes less contact with my other fingers. Maybe they can soften the edge for you?

Both my engagement ring and wedding ring are knife edge.  The wedding ring has a sharper edge (sharper than it looks in the pic).  They don’t bother me at all and I wear them 24/7.  I was suspicious of the knife edge before having it.  And I can be pretty picky about rings and pointy/stabby and protruding bits :).

Definitely try some on and see how they feel.

Mine is a knife edge that I asked to have smoothed down a bit. I find it super comfortable.

I had a diamond encrusted knife edge band on my original e-ring.  I absolutely LOVED it.   I found it very comfortable, because there were no diamonds rubbing up on the sides of the neighboring fingers and it didn’t make my finger feel super bulky like every other ring I had tried on.   I think that the top of my knife edge was also slightly flattened a bit, so it wasn’t sharp sharp.  


Here is a pic of my old e-ring:



@beebea35:  If you didn’t find the knife-edge comfortable in the store then DO NOT GET IT.  You will be wearing that ring all the time and you want to make sure that EVERY aspect of the ring is right, not just most of them.  Especially if FI is paying Tiffany’s prices.   I would ask Tiffany if they can customize the ring to have a band that you DO like though…any jewelry store should be able to do this.

Mine is really comfortable, I don’t even feel it.  Mine is Tiffany and I feel like the edge is smoothed down and not quite as pronounced as others.  I also have skinny fingers with space between them, so that may be a factor.

Mine is a very thin knife edge, and I don’t even notice it on my hand! Super comfortable.

@beebea35:  Here is a horribly blurry cell-phone picture of mine! It has a milgrain detail along the top half of the knife edge.  My wedding band is the same style, with the side details going across the top.  My ring doesn’t bother me at all unless the top spins to the side.

The knife edge aspect of things doesn’t bother me, but the thin, flat inside of the band does. I take it off at bedtime and I think I am going to have to get some gold added to it to make it more comfortable.
