There is something timeless about the elegant beauty of a solitaire engagement ring. These are traditional rings that each feature a single diamond, and they are usually used to mark significant milestones, from engagements to proposals. As one might expect, they are often viewed as romantic pieces that symbolise everlasting love.
Buying a Solitaire Engagement Ring
When you go to buy a solitaire engagement ring, there are a few things that you need to consider. These include:
1. The shape of the diamond.
When we look at solitaire rings, we can clearly see that the diamond setting is what really stands out. This means that you need to think carefully about the shape of the solitaire. Would your future bride prefer a princess cut engagement ring, a round brilliant diamond ring, a cushion cut diamond or perhaps something different?
2. The metal for the band.
If we look at engagement rings from an aesthetical viewpoint, we can see that there are plenty of different metals to choose from. Most people choose to go for platinum, gold, rose gold or white gold, with sterling silver being an unpopular choice for engagement rings because it tarnishes over time.
3. The cut of the diamond.
If you are looking for a diamond solitaire that will really refract light, then you need to pay a lot of attention to the cut of the diamond itself. The cut grade tells you a lot. We would highly recommend going for a diamond with a GIA cut grade of “Excellent” if you are looking for an incredibly attractive piece.
4. The style of the ring as a whole.
If you are choosing a ring for your lover, then you need to make sure that you pay attention to the ring as a whole. Will it suit her style? Do you think that she would enjoy wearing it on a daily basis? Try to avoid anything that she would not like.
Making the Purchase
Once you have chosen a solitaire ring that you like, you can go to view it in person and perhaps to bring it home for your future fiancée. We have a lot of rings available, one of them might be the right ring for you.
