Spin Me Right Round: Twisted Shank Engagement Rings for Valentine’s Day

Feb 12, 2012

If you’re looking for a fresh new approach to engagement ring design, the twisted shank is definitely the way to go. The twists and intertwining loops make these mountings look supremely stylish and still maintain a romantic feel. If your girl is a bona fied fashionista, she’ll love this clean look for a Valentine’s Day proposal.

The beauty of this particular engagement ring design is its flexibility in design. There’s an endless number of ways to arrange, split, divide and twist the ring shank that only enhances the look of the center stone and is sure to certify a one-of-a-kind look. Creating an elaborate ring shank can be a cost-effective way of showing off a diamond solitaire instead of relying on diamond accents. But if bling is your thing, the design of the ring band can be enhanced by patterns of diamond pave for a more whimsical look.

Besides being a spectacular look, sometimes twisted ring shanks can provide better support for the center stone and help it look larger. Elaborate engagement ring bands may also require a custom wedding band to fit the shape of the engagement ring. Fortunately, many jewelry brands such as Michael M. and Norman Silverman offer tracer wedding bands that will do just that. Not to mention it will make a bridal set worthy of turning just about anybody’s head.

A.Jaffe’s new designs strictly for Forevermark diamonds showcase this twisted engagement ring style the best. These beautiful bands almost look branch-like with their intertwining designs. What’s more is that they have plain platinum settings for those who like it sweet and simple as well as pave diamond versions for sparkling splendor.

Settings like this Michael M. engagement ring whole-heartedly embraced with twisted shank concept. This ring in particular features a dazzling display of weaving pave diamond stripes that meet together and turn away all the white bringing attention to the center diamond.


Tacori also has a beautiful engagement ring mounting with the twisted band motif. The pattern on the shank is a simple and clean design of interweaving rows of pave round-cut white diamonds. The waves with their delicate milgrain detailing elegantly lead up to the round-cut center diamond.
