What is a Solitaire Engagement Ring?

Ready to pop that question? The first step is choosing the perfect engagement ring to dazzle your partner as you step into your next chapter together. 

When looking at engagement rings, you may have come across the term solitaire engagement ring. But what is a solitaire engagement ring? and how does it compare to other types? Our guide covers what solitaire engagement rings are, and how they differ from other types of styles, so you can choose an engagement ring that is the perfect fit for your spouse-to-be. 

With several varieties of design to choose from, solitaire engagement rings remain a classic and timeless choice for an engagement ring. 

A solitaire engagement ring features just one diamond, with no other gemstones to distract from the main event. This style places emphasis on the diamond itself, making it the centerpiece of the ring. The term solitaire comes from the word “solus” which is Latin for alone or sole. But while they only feature a single diamond, this doesn’t mean the solitaire is limited to a purely minimalist look. You can choose a band that is tailored to your partner’s tastes, from simple to intricate designs, to match their personal style. 

Nonetheless, a solitaire ring is a perfect choice for an engagement ring to represent the love you both share.

Is a solitaire diamond a real diamond?

The term solitaire refers to the setting, and “diamond” refers to the glistening stone itself. 

A solitaire diamond, therefore, refers to a single diamond, of any cut, which can feature on any type of jewelry from rings to necklaces. Solitaire diamonds have stood the test of time – remaining a popular choice for engagement rings. Its simplicity draws attention to the diamond itself, rather than having smaller gemstones surrounding it. 

Due to its minimalistic design, solitaire diamond rings can complement other rings with ease, so your partner won’t need to worry about other jewelry clashing with their new diamond. Its simplicity means you won’t struggle to choose the perfect wedding ring to accompany it.
