When you think of an engagement ring, a solitaire diamond probably comes to mind. One single diamond has long been a symbol of love and commitment. A solitaire diamond is a classic, timeless choice for an engagement ring.

What is a solitaire diamond?

A solitaire diamond is one diamond set in a piece of jewelry. Solitaire diamonds can be set in a variety of pieces, like necklaces, earrings, and rings. Solitaire diamonds are commonly set in rings and are a popular style of engagement ring.

History of solitaire diamonds

The history of solitaire diamonds dates all the way back to ancient Rome. In those times, gold rings set with an uncut diamond stone were highly valued.

The first diamond engagement ring was used in 1477, when an Austrian archduke proposed to with one. This sparked the popularity of diamond rings as engagement rings.

How to choose a solitaire diamond

Since the diamond is the focal point of a solitaire ring, it’s important to choose one that looks the part. Pay special attention to the cut quality; this is arguably the most important factor of all. It affects sparkle, symmetry, and the overall appearance of your stone.

The ideal carat weight for a solitaire diamond depends on preference. Step-cut shapes like the asscher and emerald look particularly good with extra size, though. And remember that the larger the diamond, the better its color grade and clarity need to be. 

How expensive are solitaire diamonds?

Since the diamond steals the show in a solitaire setting, its quality needs to be high. High quality, larger diamonds are more expensive. It’s worth it to invest in a quality diamond for a solitaire diamond engagement ring.

Which cut looks best as a solitaire diamond?

Any diamond cut can be set as a solitaire diamond. Round brilliant cut diamonds are the most popular and timeless choice for solitaire diamond rings. Less brilliant cuts like Asscher and emerald cuts also look classic and understated as solitaires.

Which settings look best with a solitaire diamond?

Some settings are made specifically for solitaire diamonds. Check out the Solitaire Alice or Solitaire Twig Emily for examples of solitaire settings that still look fun and exciting. Solitaire settings with tiny side stones can add tasteful sparkle, e.g. the Solitaire Penelope.

Conclusion

Solitaire diamond rings show your devotion and commitment with one beautiful diamond. This symbol of love will always be a timeless choice.
