My ring is being made with a Euro-shank on the bottom to prevent spinning (and when they’re done right I think they’re absolutely timeless and stunning (and more antique-looking, Euro-shanks have been used for thousands of years, even many ancient Egyptian and Greek rings were shaped that way on the bottom)).  I don’t love the all-square ring you posted though, it looks more like a bolt than a ring.

As much as I love my current Wedding Set (Ering & WBands) they are round… and I have to say I do miss the fact that with the squared off Euro Shape my rings were a lot less noticeable / bothersome on my finger… my current set from Mr TTR move around quite a bit (spin).  Particularly so the WBands which are equally weighed all the way around.  The Ering is more top heavy (but wide shank, and thick bottom) so it tends to stay more put.

If any Brides2B are looking at rings, trying them on etc… I’d highly suggest that they don’t discount the Euro Shanks just because they look different…

OR if one is planning to get a Custom Set, then they should look at styling their shank this way.

It truly is awesome. 

In all honesty I am seriously thinking about having my shanks squared off in the future.

I’m always late to the party but wanted to throw in my two cents. Both my ering and wband have the euro shank (custom made) and I love them! My wband has an almost square profile. I started with the euro on my ering so that it wouldn’t spin-the jeweler reckoned that my solitaire would be top-heavy. And then because I am somewhat OCD, the wband had to match. I am well pleased with them both and won’t need to solder them together to keep everything lined up. Here’s the ering. No photo of the wband profile. I am out of town at a conference and it is at home…

@Future_Mrs_Dr_I:  one of my girlfriends has a band like that and swears by it – I got my e-ring sized really small so it wouldn’t spin, but I get a bit of an indent as a consequence, but hers doesn’t spin at all. I think if they were more readily available in stores, it would totally catch on.

I think it would be a great style for 1/2 eternity rings.

Not a fan. A true euroshank I would probably be ok with but not square on the top.

I do not like that wedding band AT ALL. The outside looks like a slightly curved square! I prefer a traditional round yellow gold wedding band thanks.
