Keep to tradition & get diamond solitaire engagement rings
Diamond solitaire engagement rings have been around as long as rings have been.
The diamond, that is set alone, standing in all its glory, flashing in the light with no other stones to detract attention from it.
This has been the ultimate in engagement rings for a long time.
One advantage of purchasing or choosing a solitaire ring is that you can spend as much or as little as you want since you only have to choose one stone.
The upside to solitaire rings is that since all the attention is focused on the diamond.
You can get away with using a multitude of metals as your diamond ring settings ranging from Gold, to Platinum to Rhodium.
The only thing you have to watch out for is the diamond color in relation to the metal you decide to use for your setting.
If its gold, use white gold as opposed to yellow with very white stones i.e D, E and F color diamonds.
You donít want the yellow metal reflecting in your diamond and making it look of lower quality.
On the other hand, if your diamond has lower color i.e I, J, K or lower, you can set it in yellow gold.
The color of the gold will play off the color of the diamond making it look whiter thus of higher quality than it actually is.
As mentioned earlier, the size of the stone will determine how much or how little you spend on your solitaire ring.
You can purchase a stone as small as 0.5 of a carat all the way to 10 carats.
In terms of cost, you can spend from & 1,500 to $100,000 depending on your budget; after all, it is for a special lady.
When only a classic timeless look will do, diamond solitaire engagement rings are the way to go.
