    Hi!! Just wondering if anyone has ever had a split shank setting but WITHOUT diamonds/pave?

    I love the split shank look, but want to avoid making it too pricey.

    All the settings I have seen online which are split shank have pave...

    Am I looking for a unicorn?


    some examples:

    https://www.jamesallen.com/engageme...plit-shank-diamond-engagement-ring-item-50336


    HOWEVER I have seen split shanks without diamonds like this one

    https://www.jamesallen.com/engageme...ble-claw-solitaire-engagement-ring-item-63394

    But I want a wider split/more open, such as the ones with the pave...

    Maybe you can get someone to photoshop one of those JA images?

    I think a metal split shank with a halo would be pretty.

    What price range are you trying to stay in?

    Here are my split shanks. Just to give you an idea as these are with coloured stones. First and last are custom made by David Klass and the ones in the middle are by Alistair Kelsey. You can use engraving if you want some decoration.

    What are the specs of your stone and what is your budget?

    Hi,

    New to the community... currently researching engagement rings myself...found a few options, ive chatted with a bunch of the reps online from all diff internet companies, notice quite a few will do custom option, jamesallen.com didnt seem that workable in terms of custom which it seems like you may want, I am debating a custom design or simply going with a classic, after chatting seemed like Rockher.com was the least expensive in terms of a custom ring, does anyone have experience with them, I saw a lot of reviews but it seems like a new company -

    i ran into a similar problem, initially wanted a split shank but if you *don't* have a halo the ring may not be wide enough to do a wider split. here's one i had considered before i decided no on the halo.

    i think that's why you see split shanks on fashion jewelry b/c the stones tend to be larger so they have the width and actually need the split shank to fit better and help avoid spinning.

    @bludiva ahhhh penny dropped, lightbulb moment thanks for igniting my common sense haha

    I am open to a halo, if thats what I need to do for the wider spilt

    @tyty333 while I cannot think of someone with photoshop I think I try something of he sort to show to my jeweller, thank for idea

    @acv123 thats nice but I need to figure how to translate into a four prong for a square/rectangular shape but thank you

    oooooooooo I seriously like that @ecf8503 although perhaps with a more seamless crossover and slimmer width.but yes!!

    @molecule thats nice but a wee bit tricky to inspect properly, where did you find it? perhaps I can go to link to get a better view

    Adiamor (a PS sponsor) has several split-shank settings that
    • are available for radiant center stones;
    • have the wider split I think you are hoping for (and should be feasible -- if your ring size isn't eensy --since your radiant is not a small stone); and
    • also have plain shanks
    2 of these have halos; the other is a plain solitaire:
