Getting down on one knee, holding out the tiny box, waiting to see the look on her face when you ask for her hand in marriage . . . These are all scenes you’ll want to remember after you propose marriage to your sweetheart. It’s not only a romantic occasion, it’s one that neither you nor she will ever forget. So along with the moment, you need a beautiful solitaire diamond ring to put in that tiny box for her to open.
A diamond solitaire ring is just one style of many that you can chose from for an engagement ring, but it tends to be a popular choice. Known for its stunning presence and breathtaking beauty, diamond solitaire rings are a classic. Featuring a single but remarkable diamond, a diamond solitaire ring is simple, sophisticated, and elegant – just want she wants.
Another trend in the diamond solitaire ring industry is purchasing platinum diamond solitaire rings as engagement rings. The platinum band is generally more expensive than a white gold band, and tends to be a bit more sturdy. But for engagement rings either platinum or white gold is acceptable.
So how do you know what kind of diamond solitaire ring to choose? Round solitaires are popular and classic. The princess cut diamond solitaires are square-shaped. They can be fragile if the setting does not protect the diamond’s corners. The emerald solitaire is also popular – it’s a rectangular shaped diamond. The marquise solitaire is a slender diamond with tapered ends, resembling the actual shape of a diamond. Another popular choice is the oval solitaire, more elongated than the round diamond.
With these options it might seem overwhelming when it comes time to decide which diamond solitaire to chose. But take your time. It’s a once in a lifetime moment, so make it count.
