When Joe Jonas put a ring on it with Sophie Turner, we were seriously awestruck by the stunning pear-shaped sparkler. The megawatt diamond accented with pavé stones is beyond breathtaking no matter how you shake it, but the double band engagement ring setting is what truly got us—it perfectly sets off the teardrop diamond appearing unique as ever (and costing a real pretty penny, to boot).
Clean and modern, we’ve become obsessed with double band engagement rings akin to Turner’s one-of-a-kind design. Designers are privy to the aesthetic with options on the market ranging from simple to ornate at an array of prices.
The beauty of this band style is that it perfectly showcases any stone shape whether you’re one for an angular emerald or asscher cut, traditional oval or pear (like Sophie’s), or a vintage-inspired shape like marquise or a stone cluster. Opting for stones apart from diamonds is another way to stand out with a double band—gemstones appear fresh and unique, a moonstone or opal feels super cool and modern (both incredibly affordable, too), and even a pearl looks contemporary when centered between two slim pavé bands.
Now, not all double bands are alike. Some stones come situated between a top and bottom band appearing pressurized between the two, while others sit atop a split shank to create a similar amount of space around the stone with the bands coming together in the back of the ring. The latter stems from a more traditional setting if you want to keep things modern, but with a skosh of conventionalism. There’s also the option of a double band ring sans center stone—we love this for minimal brides-to-be or for those not into major bling. Set with smaller diamonds on both bands, the look is just as striking.
Another fun fact of a double band ring? It can serve as both an engagement ring and a wedding band if you’re not into wearing more than one ring after your wedding. Modern brides (and budget-conscious ones) will love this. Or, if you are the ring stack type, the double band will give you a head start on your nesting.
