Solitaire Engagement Rings 101

Solitaire Engagement Rings 101

You've found your soulmate and now it's time to buy her the ring of her dreams!

She filled you in on the fact that she wants a solitaire, but now you?re wondering where to go from here.

Well, we can help.

Why a solitaire?

When you think engagement ring, you think solitaire. Giving your fiance a solitaire engagement ring gives her the opportunity to show off her diamond in a timeless setting that will never go out of style.

There are a few basics to decide on before you move forward:

Diamond Shape

Round, princess-cut, oval, pear, emerald-cut or marquise...the shape of the diamond can change the entire look. If you're going for classic, a round diamond is the way to go, but switching it up can give her solitaire engagement ring a more unique flare.

The Band

Would she prefer a thin band? White, yellow, or rose gold? Does she want the band engraved? Whatever you choose, make her ring timeless and true to her tastes.

The Setting

Most diamond solitaires are held firm with prongs, which let your diamond show maximum sparkle. However, some women may prefer a bezel setting, which encircles your diamond in metal, so that only the top of the diamond appears.

Deciding on the diamond

Since solitaire rings make the diamond the star of the show, your bride-to-be will appreciate that you put more emphasis on the quality of her diamond.

One way to help you narrow down the process is by breaking it down to the the 4Cs of diamond buying : cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. This is how sellers price and grade their diamonds and it's also what will determine the cost.

Then Comes the Wedding Ring

A solitaire leaves her choice of wedding band wide open. She may choose a band (or two) of diamonds or she may decide on an enhancer ring, which surrounds the solitaire with additional sparkle.

As you journey through this exciting engagement process, just remember to relax, soak in the moment, and focus on the love you have for each other.

In the end, that's all that really matters.
