Solitaire settings are your most elegant and timeless piece. Engagement rings alone date back to 1477 according to the American Gem Society. In 1886 Tiffany and Co. popularized the 6 prong setting style which is still very popular today. The solitaire setting has been one of the lasting classics that never gets old!
Although the solitaire is a fairly simple design, there are ways to add very fine details to make the solitaire custom to you. There are many styles which are offered from the Tiffany style to the cathedral style. Here is a helpful article I wrote on solitaire settings: http://www.helpbuyingadiamond.com/wp/solitaire-engagement-rings/
Deciding on an engagement ring for your loved one can be a nerve racking process. From the diamond cut and quality to the engagement ring style and ring size. Finding someone whom you trust to help walk you through the buying process can be very comforting and bring less stress and anxiety to something that should be fun!
I had the pleasure of assisting a client with his now fiances dream ring! Together we built the perfect solitaire setting. Holding a 2.16ct I VS2 A Cut Above from Whiteflash.com. The setting was created locally with one of his trusted jewelers and presented in the most magical way. It was a pleasure to be a part of this experience. Educating my clients and making sure they are making informed decisions is why I do what I do.
Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness!
