Split shank engagement rings splinter the band into two or more separate strands that are either separated by space or interwoven. These strands then connect at the point where the centerpiece diamond is set.
Also known as split band engagement rings, these engagement rings are a good option for both aesthetic and functional reasons. They possess a glamorous and intriguing design, as well as provide increased security for your centerpiece diamond. Split shank engagement rings also create the illusion that your centre stone diamond is larger than it actually is.
Split shank rings are incredibly versatile. They can be as simple or as fancy as you wish. You can get round brilliant cut split shank engagement rings, princess cut split shank engagement rings, cushion cut split shank engagement rings, emerald cut split shank engagement rings, and pear shaped diamond split shank engagement rings. All of these pair nicely with yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, or platinum. Split shank engagement rings are frequently paired with pave set accent diamonds on the shank. This adds additional sparkle to an already beautiful ring.
Because of their uniqueness, split shank engagement rings command a lot of attention and stand out from traditional single-shank bands. They are a great option for those that want something a little more unique or elaborate, and draw attention to your centerpiece diamond, thus making it more commanding and impressive.
