This is by far and away, THE best band on the planet!! Not only is it super comfortable, but it seems to help keep your ring from spinning on you. My FH is getting this as his band, b/c he wears gloves all the time, and this ring is barely noticible on your finger! They’re super hard to find, and no one carries them, I’ve only seen one person wearing it! Why isn’t it more popular?

@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.

@Future_Mrs_Dr_I: my friend’s set is like this on the bottom so it doesn’t spin.

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!

My wedding band has a euroshank at the bottom! I love it!

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.

@mrspinesol: I was engaged once and this is what I had. Just seeing it like this, I wouldn’t have liked it either, but once it’s on your hand, no one notices the shape at all! When I would take it off, people would say, “Oh wow, it’s square!!?” Lol
Well I guess I meant to use this as an engagement ring and wedding band. 🙂
There are a few places that carry them in stock, and any jeweler I’ve talked to has said thy can get it. For a 2mm band, it’s under $300 for gold. I highly recommend it, especially if you’re one of those gals who is NOT ok with your hubby not wearing a ring, lol. (Like me!!)

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

@IzzyBear: I think I’ve seen euro shanks, aren’t they pretty thick? Would this really be considered euro shank? I had no idea they were more expensive to resize!

@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.

@IzzyBear: I see. I’ve got a client who has this band, I’m waiting on her to send me a pic of it on her finger. I’ll show you guys once she sends it. 🙂

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