RoundDiamond Solitaire Engagement Ring is the most popular classicstyle in Diamond Engagement Rings.

TheSolitairediamond is the most sought-after designstyle and is clearly preferred by manybrides-to-be who are interested in creating a timelessly classic piece of jewellery. This ring setting will definitelyrequire you to allocate a certain budget for a diamond size not less than 0.75 cts or preferably 1 carat and higher in order to make a statement piece with an appealing center stone.

The six-prong tiffany inspired engagement ring setting is still a bestseller. Designed on either a knife edge or a round shaped band and especially in platinum, it remains the universal choice among many contemporary brides-to-be around the globe for obvious reasons. And the amazing magic trick is hidden in the science. This setting was created by Tiffany over a century ago with the center diamond set a bit higher thanusual to exhibit the best light return whichintensifies its brilliance and fire.

Based on our observations, Solitaire engagement ring settings are adorned with fancy cut diamonds and so they are growing in popularity as a new trend. These engagementrings are often set with matching pairs of sidestones in marquise cut diamonds,
pear shaped diamonds or a combination of other fancy cut diamonds together with round diamonds. It’s a kind of contemporaryinterpretation of the classic Three stone Engagement Ring by using many different variations of diamond accents in the design.

Lately, round brilliants are also pairedwith Rose gold ring settings for a more vintage distinctive appearance. Rose gold on its own is another latest trend in bridal jewellery among new generation consumers.

New brides-to-be are also encouraged to learn the difference in shade of colour between 18K and 14k rose gold and so consider this for their prefered designs. Your ring setting made in 18K rose gold willalways appear more delicately pale with slight yellow overtone in comparison to 14k rose gold that tends to look more rich or intensely deep depending on the percentage of coppercontent in gold alloy. Another important factor to be taken into consideration, is that14k rose gold ring will be more durable and less scratchable incomparison to 18k rose gold setting.
