    @SLfairytale:  Unfortunately, I do not have a picture with me, but I can say that I have never found the knife edge to be uncomfortable.

    It’s very comfortable, it never sticks out or feels pointy to me.

    The knife-edge has never bothered me, I find it very comfortable.  I have a Tiffany princess cut, .58 carats, size 5 1/4.

    Mine is not from Tiffany’s (why I’m not posting a pic), but it’s the tiffany style knife edge setting in platinum and I love the simplicity of the setting and I find no issues with comfort.

    We got mine custom-made in the style of the Tiffany Classic setting. No issues with the knife edge at all. 

    Size 4.75, 1 ct:

    My setting looks similar to lorelei’s (but with a princess) and I haven’t had any problems at all.  Granted, I’ve only had it 3 weeks πŸ˜‰ but I find it quite comfortable

    I have a knife edge on my band, and it’s comfortable πŸ™‚ I don’t feel it at all. 

    (My ring isn’t a Tiffany, but it is a Tiffany replica. I too, loved every-single-thing about a Tiffany ring, so I went to a few jewelers to see if they could make it for me. They did, and at a more affordable price. Just throwing that out there, if you haven’t thought of it yet. You can get replicas made by local jewelers, if money is an issue!)

    I have the Tiffany Setting and the knife edge doesnt bother me at all, even though I never wore rings before getting engaged.

    Here is a pic of my e-ring and w-band πŸ™‚

    Size 5,5 and 1 ct

    Mine’s not Tiffany but it is knife-edge, it’s not uncomfortable at all. That said, because there’s little surface area touching your hand, it does move around a lot, especially if you have a larger (>0.5ct) diamond set.

    When I tried on the Tiffany solitaires I found the knife edge uncomfortable. It could have been because the rings I was trying on were too big for me and a properly-fitted ring would be ok, but I didn’t want to chance it so I opted away from that style.

    If you can find a knife-edge style to try on in your size this would let you know for sure if you personally would be comfortable.

    @SoonToBee2013:  Pretty! 

    @SLfairytale:   Tiffany & co knife edges are actually a bit sharp. It was a little bit for me to get used to the knife edge feel in all  honesty. Now am used to it. If you are going for a replica (be aware the prongs may be a little dfferent ) some of them have more rounded “knife” edges too.  If I were you, I’d try on the knife edge and other styles to make sure what you are comfortable with!

    Pretty rings ladies! πŸ™‚
