Get Inspired by These Double Band Engagement Rings


If you are looking for something similar to split band, but with more of a double band look, these gorgeous engagement rings are sure to offer some inspiration.


Pave Pear

Pave stones work well on a variety of different designs, adding plenty of sparkle in a subtle way. For the double band style, these tiny stones work especially well, highlighting the gently tapered pear to perfection. A halo around the centre stone adds even more bling to this design, which would work well in any choice of metal and diamond colour.


Pave Emerald

The same design also works well with an emerald cut diamond as the centre stone. This cut is unique in a number of ways. Rather than having multiple facets, emerald cut stones have a faceted surface that gives a unique glow to the diamond, catching the light in a subtle yet glamorous way. This stone was favoured for many years and has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity in recent times.


Minimal Gold

Ideal for brides who prefer a minimal ring style, this ring is simple and sophisticated. A solid gold double band is dotted with just a handful of tiny pave stones, adding enough sparkle to shine without being over the top or obtrusive. If you love the double band style but don't usually wear much jewellery, this minimal style is sure to appeal to your muted tastes.


Floating Diamond

This unusual style has a solitaire diamond that appears to float on the upper band. In classic yellow or white gold with a white diamond, the ring is timeless in its elegance. It would work well in platinum and rose gold, too. Try a coloured diamond in blush or chocolate for added style or try something bolder such as ruby, sapphire, emerald or Tanzanite.


Marquise Twist

Another interesting take on the double band style is this twisted band ring with a centre marquise stone. The shape of this stone works well with the crossed double band, adding plenty of interest and balance to the overall design and helping to make the centre stone truly shine. Diamond and white gold or platinum work well in this design but you could choose any metal and stone with equally lovely results.


Rose Gold
