There is one thing that you will find in any diamond solitaire engagement ring: a beautiful diamond as the main focal point. Maybe the band portion of the ring is gold, maybe platinum, or perhaps another type of metal. When it comes to a solitaire ring, that’s pretty much all there is right—a single stone and band?
There is some truth to that notion, but only in the fact that there is indeed a central diamond, which is why it is called a solitaire. But a solitaire ring is not simply a diamond on a band. A solitaire engagement ring can be, and often is, so much more! We have chosen some of our favorite rings here at Trumpet & Horn to show you just how versatile the diamond solitaire engagement ring can be.
Some people prefer a large diamond as the focal point for their engagement ring, and some prefer a stone a bit more modest. The great thing about Challis Farm is that you get to decide how big you want the solitaire to be. This ring is custom made by Trumpet & Horn, which means that you can have the bezel set diamond sized anywhere from half a carat to 10 or more carats!
However big or small you decide to go with the actual diamond, the 18K gold band with a hammered finish detail is the perfect accompaniment to this diamond solitaire engagement ring.
One look at Ambleside and you can probably tell that this gorgeous ring is from the 1940s. The mix of gold and white gold on the band give it its distinctive retro look, which likely isn’t what you first think of when you imagine a solitaire ring. It’s simple, but it’s also very unique, which only adds to the charm of Ambleside.
The Brilliant Cut center diamond weighs in at .58 carats and calls for your attention, and the surrounding mix of yellow and white gold help it achieve its goal. Ambleside also features two single cut diamonds in the white gold portion of the band, making this solitaire engagement ring extra special.
Like Challis Farm and Ambleside, this diamond solitaire engagement ring also has a prominent round diamond. However, the setting of the Brilliant Cut diamond almost gives it a square or Cushion Cut appearance. Oliver is a simple engagement ring, focusing on the beauty of minimalism. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t stunning.
The scalloped edging on the 14k yellow and white gold band directs your eyes right to the diamond, as if it wasn’t already commanding your attention. Sometimes simple can be the most elegant, and Oliver is a great example of this.
One word can sum up the style of the 1950s: glamorous. When it comes to jewelry, you can’t really get much more glamorous than diamonds. Sand Piper is from the Modern era and is a diamond solitaire engagement ring fit for Marilyn or Elizabeth.
One diamond wasn’t enough for this ring, so the solitaire is set between two baguette diamonds. With its platinum band and three diamonds, Sand Piper is another simple ring, but it has personality. This ring is glamorous, classic, and will make any woman feel like a bombshell.
While diamond solitaires share the same overall style, in that they include a central diamond, there are many different types to choose from. All solitaires are not the same. They can be simple, they can be extravagant, and they can be anywhere in between. Trumpet & Horn appreciates a beautiful diamond solitaire engagement ring and carries a wide variety for you to choose from.
