A solitaire is, of course, a classic style among the infinite expressions of engagement ring designs and styles. Sometimes the term is misused among the general public, but the true definition of a solitaire is one diamond or gemstone by itself with no other diamond or gemstone accents.
One might think that with such a limited range — basically the ring shank and one stone — most solitaires would look alike, and honestly a lot do. That doesn’t mean, however, that they all look alike. The best way to get a truly unique solitaire engagement ring is by creating a custom ring.
I picked these three rings as examples of unique solitaire engagement ring designs we’ve created for our clients. Two were custom rings, and the third is part of our catalog, yet special enough to be included here.
1. This modern solitaire engagement ring features a 0.72 ct. round brilliant cut diamond, set in a platinum bezel, with a wide 14 karat yellow gold shank that is satin finished. This is a very practical ring for every day wear, and its width and two-tone metals make a bold statement.
2. Celtic knots are a popular motif in wedding jewelry, especially for clients who want to celebrate their Celtic heritage. Knots like these can represent wisdom, love, strength, compassion, and honesty. This Celtic engagement ring incorporates the knot design into the ring’s shoulders, a beautiful look. (This setting is currently on sale, get an extra 10% off!)
3. This third ring, a princess cut solitaire engagement ring, features hand engraving and milgrain on the ring’s shank. This particular ring has a floral motif, but hand engraving can be highly customized for a wide variety of patterns, as it’s an artisan process done by hand.
