The Complete Guide to Solitaire Engagement Rings

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

A solitaire engagement ring is ideal for the traditional bride-to-be. Solitaire rings are easily one of the most popular settings available, with a traditionally beautiful look that focuses all attention on the center stone. They're more simple and minimalist than some of today's trendier looks, and they're a timeless piece of jewelry that will never go out of style.

What Is the Definition of a Solitaire Engagement Ring?

A solitaire engagement ring is one with a single center gemstone. The ring contains no other diamonds or gemstones, and the band is typically plain with no pavé diamonds.

Most people associate a classic diamond engagement ring with this design. A solitaire ring design can be traced back to ancient Rome, using uncut and unpolished stones.

Pros and Cons of Solitaire Engagement Rings

There are numerous positive aspects to solitaire engagement rings. One of the main reasons people prefer this style is that it is timeless. It will never be out of date or trendy, and it is simple to pass down. Another reason people like solitaire rings is that their simple and minimalistic design allows them to be easily styled with wedding bands. These rings are extremely adaptable. They look equally good with a complicated wedding band as they do with a simple one. A solitaire engagement ring can look completely different when stacked with fun and unique wedding bands, or it can be kept simple with a classic band.

It's difficult to find anything negative to say about solitaire engagement rings, owing to their simplicity. However, for some, this may be a disadvantage: some people find their simplistic design to be lacking in personality. A solitaire isn't for you if you prefer features like sparkling diamond halos and milgrain details, as well as side stones to complement your center stone. However, if you want a classic look, this is ideal.

What to Look for in an Engagement Ring with a Solitaire

Finding the ideal solitaire engagement ring is more than just looking for something you like. Here are some questions and answers to think about before buying one.

  • What is the most crucial feature of a solitaire engagement ring?

    Because a solitaire ring is so simple, all eyes will be drawn to the center stone. Because the stone is the focal point, you should ensure that it is not only beautiful but also of high quality. The best thing to look for in a solitaire ring is that your diamond is certified and will last a lifetime.

  • Which stone cut is best for this type of ring?

    A solitaire ring is unique in that there is no best diamond cut. Because of its simplicity, it is a good candidate for almost any diamond shape. Round, oval, emerald, marquise, pear, and cushion diamond shapes are some of the most popular for this type of ring.

  • What kind of wedding band complements a solitaire ring the best?

    Again, one of the benefits of a solitaire ring is that it can be worn with almost any type of wedding band. Stacking options range from plain gold bands to custom intricate designs. A tracer band is one of our favorite ways to stack a solitaire. These bands are curved to fit various stone shapes and create a stunning, cohesive look.

  • How can a solitaire ring be made more interesting?

    If you ever feel the need to switch things up with your solitaire ring, you can. Adding more shape and design by stacking multiple bands on both the top and bottom of the ring. Playing with negative space, adding texture, and dimension to your stack are all excellent ways to spice up your solitaire.

How to Look After Your Solitaire Engagement Ring

Another advantage of solitaire engagement rings is that they don't require any special cleaning methods, and they can be cared for in the same way as other types of jewelry. We recommend that you remove your ring before engaging in activities that could damage it, such as hiking, swimming, or doing any work that requires you to use your hands. If you have second thoughts about taking it off, you should!

To keep your ring shining and sparkling like new, we recommend having it professionally cleaned every six months.

When having your ring cleaned professionally, you can also request that the jeweler perform maintenance checks. Examine the stone settings and the integrity of the prongs to ensure that no stones are at risk of falling out.

You can always clean your ring at home with warm water and a drop of dishwashing liquid on your own. Rinse it with warm water and rub it gently with a microfiber cloth.
