There’s a reason solitaire engagement rings are a time-honored classic.
Loved for their crisp design, engagement rings with solitaire settings feature a single stone placed on the metal band. These rings highlight the diamond like no other: those with narrower bands make smaller diamonds appear larger, while many solitaire rings have ring guards (or ring wraps) framing and highlighting the center diamond.
The wearer of a solitaire ring looks elegant no matter how beautifully simple or intricate the band.
