The solitaire style of engagement ring has been immensely popular for about as long as anyone can remember. There’s just something about a solitaire diamond sitting proudly atop a gold or platinum band that has incredible appeal.
This post is going to take a closer look at why solitaire engagement rings have always been so popular, as well as a few current examples of solitaire rings on the market today.
Why Solitaire Engagement Rings Are So Popular
Part of the allure of a stunning solitaire diamond engagement ring is its simplicity of design. Solitaire rings have a less is more appearance, while at the same time a single, larger stone does stand out and attract attention. There is also a distinct symmetry attached to a solitaire engagement ring that makes it visually appealing.
There is also something about the uncluttered look of a single diamond that seems to more powerfully express the symbolic meaning of both love and commitment.
What Wedding Band Looks Best With a Solitaire Diamond?
Both white and yellow gold are the most common wedding bands for a solitaire diamond engagement ring, in either 9ct or 18ct, with 18ct being the most popular choice. Rose gold is also used for this type of ring. Many people tend to prefer the use of white gold, or even platinum, for a solitaire ring, as something about the silvery finish of white gold and platinum blends well with a single diamond. Having said that, a solitaire diamond mounted upon a band of yellow gold can actually highlight the diamond and make it stand out more.
There are no hard and fast rules for bands and solitaire engagement rings. It really comes down to personal preference and individual taste.
