Solitaire engagement rings have long been the most popular choice among women. And even though many other styles come and go, solitaire rings have stuck around forever. But have you ever wondered why?
First, a solitaire engagement ring is definitely the most classic engagement ring around. There is a traditional, yet special, appeal about a ring that showcases only one central diamond, and many women love to have this large, beautiful diamond as the absolute focal point of their ring.
Second, if the diamond is cut well (read more about the importance of cut), solitaires are extremely brilliant. Most commonly found in a prong setting, solitaire rings in this setting allow the most possible light to penetrate into the diamond, resulting in the diamond refracting more light (otherwise known as more sparkle!). And with sparkle that radiates all around, solitaires rings quickly grab the attention of those around it.
Third, solitaires are a "safe" choice – for both men and women. For a man selecting an engagement ring, if he is not sure what she wants or if she has not hinted at a more specific style, a solitaire design is a choice that almost all women will love.
Finally, solitaires are not just classic…but truly timeless. This is a ring that a woman can look at in five, 10 or even 30 years and still love just as much as today. Proven by their ability to withstand the changing trends of time, dazzling solitaire engagement rings are here to stay and a choice of one will never be regretted.
