Diamonds set alone on a band are known as "diamond solitaires" and have been a popular choice for an engagement ring over many generations. A solitaire ring can also be set with a colored gemstone like ruby or sapphire which can be round, square, oval, or even triangle and heart shaped, and if you like, you can add accent diamonds or other colored gems. One design style that's been very popular is the vintage or antique style with a "halo" of small diamonds encircling the center stone with a sparkling frame of light. If you are active, wear gloves or you need a low profile ring that is easy to wear, your solitaire stone can be set low or even at the surface of your ring. If you'd like to accent it, your diamond looks great when accompanied by smaller stones set at each side. We'll help you make your own statement ring to wear as a visible symbol of your commitment and your love and as an expression of your personal style whether traditional, vintage, antique, or contemporary.
