Engagement ring shopping can certainly be overwhelming, especially if you have no clue what you’re looking for. You have to consider the color, cut, design, band, and setting — the latter of which is often ignored, even though different settings can drastically affect a ring’s overall style.
One of the most popular choices is a solitaire engagement ring (also known as a prong setting). Prongs — whether rounded, pointed, or shaped another way — are the tiny claws that hold a ring’s diamond in place. And that’s what solitaire rings are all about: the diamond. They put the stone on full display, enabling light to pass through in a way that shows off the diamond’s brilliance.
Perhaps the best part of solitaire engagement rings is their versatility. Different combinations of diamond shapes and bands all work well with a solitaire setting. It’s easy to make a ring your own!
