If you’re looking for an engagement ring style that is elegant and feminine, shaped band rings are sure to be a good choice. As the name implies, these rings have a shaped band. The most common type of ring in this style is the classic chevron. This can be worn with the point facing upwards or downwards. Often, the V of the chevron is covered in tiny pave diamonds or stones.

Exquisite Shaped Band Engagement Rings
Some of our favourite shaped band engagement rings include the following:
This is the classic chevron we mentioned earlier. It has a fine, delicate band, with tiny pave stones set in a V shape. This ring would work in any metal – platinum, yellow gold, or rose gold. It would also work with precious stones as well as diamonds or even a combination of stones for something bolder.
For something that appeals to this with a love for all things vintage-inspired, this ring has plenty of classic charm. It features a gentle series of loops, with a chevron in the centre that resembles the bottom of a heart. Keep it classic in rose gold and diamond or try adding a warm-toned stone such as morganite or a dramatic black diamond for the side stones.
Another way to add to the chevron style of shaped band ring is to add a stone in the centre of the dip. This balances it out, adding a subtle shape. In this ring, a small round cut diamond adds a lot of sparkle, with pave stones on the band adding the perfect touch.
Art deco rings are certainly having a moment again. If you love unusual, bold rings, this one is just right. Small baguette diamonds are arranged on the chevron band, creating a unique shape to the ring. Yellow gold works especially well against the diamond but rose gold and platinum would also work.
Feminine and understated, this twisted band ring uses a series of tiny pave diamonds instead of a larger centre stone. The result is a ring that has loads of sparkle, without losing its simplicity. If you prefer minimal styles that are not too over the top, you will love this engagement ring, whatever metal you prefer.
The H shape ring certainly stands out. This is a variation of the double band ring, with a centre bar down the middle that connects each band. The centre bar and the fronts of the top and lower bands are both encrusted with pave stones. Keep all the stones diamonds or try adding impact with semi-precious stones on the centre bar.
This ring is ideal for those wanting a bit of romance. The heart-shaped diamond in the centre is gently entwined with an open band that cradles the stone. The top part of the band features tiny pave diamonds, while the lower part is left plain. Swap the centre heart stone for ruby, emerald, sapphire or tanzanite or try a coloured diamond.
Two-tone rings work well with shaped bands, allowing you to mix up metals subtly while adding more detail. In this ring, yellow and white gold is used along with a centre diamond and pave diamonds on the white gold band. These metals to not clash and the design is simple enough to avoid being over the top.
