Solitaire rings feature just one diamond and with no other gemstones to distract from the main piece, extra emphasis is placed upon the diamond as its sparkle decorates this classic ring.
When it comes to choosing a style of ring, the solitaire is iconic. The minimal design is the most popular style for a proposal and for good reason, as the elegance of a sleek band–whether traditional, split-shoulder or something more contemporary–means that the beauty of the lone diamond is truly the centrepiece.
Typically, the solitaire ring is coupled with a round brilliant diamond, which is the most popular stone shape for any engagement ring. However, with everyone having unique styles and tastes, different diamond cuts can be used to make it a truly personalised piece.
Some other popular diamond cuts for a solitaire ring include:
Princess cut – A squared-off cut, compromised of either 57 or 76 facets.
Heart cut – A diamond cut based on the universal symbol for love.
Even though a solitaire ring only features one diamond, it isn’t limited to a minimalist look. With band designs ranging from simple to intricate designs, these styles help match the ring to the wearer. Choosing a style essentially comes down to the personal preference of you or your partner and while some can limit the size of the diamond, we’ll be able to make adjustments should you want a larger gemstone.
While a solitaire ring dictates the style of setting and number of diamonds, it can be made of any metal. Whether it’s gold, platinum or rose gold, the ring is going to look spectacular and the decision is completely down to you. No metal is superior and each has its own unique look and properties.
Solitaire rings combine practicality and diamond security with elegance while remaining true to any style. When this is combined with a wide selection of bands, you are able to create something truly unique.
A solitaire ring is a firm favourite, with the minimalism of the band shifting all the attention to the sparkling diamond on top. Alongside this, the variety of different diamond cuts, metals and styles to choose from mean any solitaire ring will be unique.
