Popular Solitaire Engagement Rings


Classic, elegant, timeless – it’s no wonder that solitaire engagement rings have remained one of the most popular ring styles for over a century.

What is a Solitaire Engagement Ring?

Solitaire settings feature a single diamond, which allows your diamond’s brilliance to be the focal point of your ring. The enduring simplicity of solitaire rings also means they can accommodate a wide variety of diamond shapes and sizes. Round diamonds are the classic choice for solitaire engagement rings, but fancy shaped diamonds like cushion, oval, pear, radiant, and emerald cut are popular options as well. 3 carat solitaire diamond rings or larger sizes look stunning and make an engagement ring a true statement piece, but a diamond doesn’t have to be that large to make an impact!

Elements like metal color and intricate details can give a solitaire ring a distinct look, unique to the wearer’s personal style. Rose gold solitaire engagement rings make for a look that’s at once vintage and modern in feel, and the warm metal color looks striking against many skin tones. From finishing details like elaborate filigree, hand-engraving, and milgrain to modern split shank, cathedral, and nature-inspired settings, a solitaire ring can be whatever you want it to be. The style, color, details, and diamond shape are up to you!.
