What is a Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring

A question we get asked a lot at Steven Stone is “What is a Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring?” So in today’s post we’re going to answer this question for you and show you some of our favourite styles available to buy at Steven Stone both online and at our showroom in Hale. The solitaire diamond engagement ring also known as a single stone diamond ring is a setting style where the diamond is set on its own in either a traditional claw setting or a contemporary rub-over metal setting. The design of the solitaire has become the ultimate symbol of the traditional engagement ring setting due to its astonishing brilliance, especially when showcasing a classic round brilliant cut diamond. The ring style is without a doubt the most visually traditional of all engagement ring types.
