I’m looking into wedding rings right now and am totally stuck on this gorgeous rose gold ruby ring. It’s a knife edge, so super thin. Which is great because by engagement ring is wide on the underside and I have pretty stubby fingers.
Anyways, I’ve never worn a knife edge ring and am worried about it being too sharp or uncomfortable. Can you guys share your knife edge bands and tell me how they feel?
Bonus points if your engagement ring is *not* knife edge.
Here’s the ring I want, and my engagement ring.

bumblebug : I still think you should get it! It’ll pair beautifully with your ering, and it doesn’t look too tall/sharp.

I’ve found that w knife edge bands and eternity rings they may be uncomfortable for a few days but after that you hardly notice they’re there. I wouldn’t worry too much about it!

I used to have one before resetting my engagement ring into platinum. I didn’t think it was uncomfortable at all, and the only reason I reset it was because I prefer the weight of Pt to gold. You should be fine!

I have a plain knife edge wedding band that I often wear just by itself. I never notice it feeling pokey or sharp. I love the simplicity of it.

My engagement ring is a knife edge solitaire. It was a little uncomfortable for a week or so, but got used to it to the point where I don’t even feel it anymore.

My engagement ring is a knife edge (with milgrain on the knife edge of it! Extra pokey – or so you would think)! I’ve only been wearing it for two weeks but honestly I’d forget it was there sometimes if not for the novelty and engagement ring-y-ness of it! Feeling-wise, I don’t notice it at all. I think it’s because I was already used to wearing a promise ring on that finger for years which was NOT a knife edge (it was flat/comfort fit) and now that I have a new ring there, it’s still not noticeable at all since the “ring” feeling isn’t anything new. I’d say go for it – you probably won’t even notice if you’re already used to wearing your e-ring anyway!

Thanks for all the responses! You guys are definitely making me feel less nervous about it!
I think I’m going to go see it in person in a week when I go up to LA and then will most likely get it.
For those of you who have sets, did you go up in size when adding a knife edge band? I know it’s recommended to go up a little when adding a band because you’re adding width, but since this ring is so narrow I don’t want it to fall off when I’m wearing it alone.
