The simplicity of the solitaire is timeless and classic. The solo design puts the single gemstone on full display, accentuating its raw beauty and elegance. Solitaires can feature a traditional white diamond, colored diamond or gemstone such as a sapphire, ruby or emerald for an unconventional look.
A single elegant diamond gemstone is versatile enough to wear with anything and also makes it a perfect stacking companion. You can complement the solitaire with a band of similar color and style, creating a visually striking pair.
Just because a solitaire showcases a single gem doesn’t mean it lacks flair or style. Different sizes, shapes, colors and settings give solitaires their unique character. The shape of the gemstone affects the entire look of the ring; you can choose between round, princess-cut, oval, pear, emerald-cut or marquise — whichever matches your taste. Bands can also transform the overall appearance greatly — selecting thick or thin bands in yellow or white gold are perfect ways to personalize your ring.
Finally, the setting is what will set your solitaire apart, with countless options to make your ring your own. Solitaires set high amidst firm prongs let your diamond or precious stone show off its sparkle, while a bezel setting embraces your stone with a snug metal outline, giving it a more subtle presentation. Embellishments like accent diamonds or stones also allow you to create a dramatic look and grand display.
