What to Look for When Choosing a Twist-Shank Engagement Ring

Band

When it comes to a twist-shank engagement ring, it’s all about the band. Create a timeless look by pairing this style with a solitaire or opt for a halo, three-stone, or play with mixed metals to stand out in the crowd.

“When selecting a band to pair with a twist-shank engagement ring, I recommend opting for something simple since the twisted shank should be the unique feature in your stack,” Wegman suggests.

Metal

“Twists or infinity engagement rings are great in any and all metal colors, so do not limit yourself! Play with all metal colors and, perhaps, even mix with your band stack,” Trevizo recommends.

If diamond embellishments are your best friend (us, too), platinum creates continuity that maximizes sparkle. “Since twist shanks are usually bedecked in pavé diamonds, we love this style in platinum, so the diamonds reflect their true color,” says Wegman.

Style

No matter the stone, setting, or metal you plan on pairing with your twist-shank piece, an engagement ring should be a direct reflection of your personal style—and love story!

Start by asking yourself questions about the details you want to accentuate as well as the overall look of your bridal stack. “Do you want a tight twist or do you want a loose twist? Do you want an exact matching band? Or do you want a straight wedding band to sit next to your engagement ring? If so, are you okay with negative space between your engagement ring and the band? Do you want just a metal twist, or do you want some diamonds infused in the look?” says Trevizo.

FAQs

Do twist shanks make the ring more or less expensive?

It honestly depends. If you are opting for thin twisted metal, it could be very close in price to an all-metal straight band. If it is mixed with diamonds or heavier metal on the twist, that can drive up the price,u0022 explains Trevizo.

Are twist-shank engagement rings popular?

Twist-shank engagement rings are a great look and can be quite popular,u0022 Trevizo states. While they are certainly more unique than a completely unadorned or pavé band, you can expect to find a selection of twist-shank rings from most jewelers.

What type of cut pairs best with a twist-shank engagement ring?

I love an elongated stone with a twist-shank engagement ring. I think it adds a geometric element to the ring,u0022 Trevizo suggests. A marquise, pear, or oval-cut stone are stunning examples of how to accomplish this pretty pairing.
