With seemingly endless options out there, it can be challenging to find an engagement ring that's equal parts timeless and trendy. Enter: twisted engagement rings.

Twisted engagement rings come in a wide range of styles, but one major theme unites them all—they have a romantic feel. This beautiful ring style is full of meaning; the twisted design of the split shank is reminiscent of the infinity symbol, signifying forever.

Read on for a deep dive on twisted engagement rings—plus shop editor-approved picks you can add to your cart right now.

What Is a Twisted Engagement Ring?

Several types of ring styles can be described as twisted engagement rings. Most often, the shank—or the band of the ring that encircles the finger—is split and the two bands intertwine. Cool aesthetic aside, this style also creates the illusion of a wider band width, which certain couples prefer, especially if they are shopping for a larger center stone.

Another popular type of twisted engagement ring features a single rope-like band. This is a very classic look that beautifully highlights solitaire stones or other unique gems.

Finally, some designers create nature-inspired twisted engagement rings with organic motifs such as entwined vines, branches or floral stems.

What to Look For in a Twisted Engagement Ring

Twisted engagement rings with a split shank can accommodate larger settings with bigger center stones. Many designers also embellish one or both sides of the shank in pavé diamonds for an extra-luxe effect. If you opt for a heavily diamond-encrusted setting, make sure to have a jeweler inspect the ring to make sure all of the stones are securely set.

As with every diamond ring, you should also be mindful of the quality of the diamonds your ring is designed with. Always buy your engagement jewelry from a reputable seller and have it inspected by a jeweler you trust.

Why Choose a Twisted Engagement Ring?

This style of sparkler comes in many variations, meaning there's a twisted engagement ring for every budget and personal style—whether classic, minimalist, boho or glam, this unique setting has you covered. The twisted motif not only adds character to a ring setting, it also draws the eye towards the center stone or stone arrangement, highlighting the most brilliant part of your ring.

Some couples look at the intertwined bands as a symbol of the union of two destinies and the strength of their endless love, which gives this setting an extra-special meaning. Others go for a twisted engagement ring because it gives them more creative opportunities (and additional surface area) to include mixed metals or accent stones.
