Recommended stones for solitaire rings

Most people searching for a solitaire engagement ring have one thing in mind: A diamond set in white or yellow gold. But what many don’t consider is the potential for solitaire engagement rings to showcase a colored gemstone, such as a ruby, sapphire, or emerald. Imagine the stunning effect of a diamond in the center of a solitaire setting, and then replace that with a ruby or emerald. The effect can simply be WOW, so don’t be afraid to consider colored gemstones or even colored diamonds, such as pink diamond, canary diamonds, or chocolate diamonds for your solitaire engagement ring.

In fact, Vinca is increasingly seeing demand for colored gemstones in engagement rings, and a solitaire ring is a great way to keep a classic look when trying out an alternative option. In considering what’s right for you, think about looking beyond solitaire diamond engagement rings, and trying out some color. Whether you’re looking for that classic, white diamond solitaire look or something different for your solitaire ring, we’re here to help.

In a solitaire ring, the simple design highlights the quality of the stone, giving the diamond’s sparkle and fire the opportunity to steal the show.

Pros

Perfect Go-To:  The solitaire is eternal. Because of its simplicity, it is one style that is guaranteed to look as beautiful today as it will 50 years from now. By putting the focus on the stone’s brilliance and shape, solitaire diamond rings make an aesthetic statement on the hand of the wearer, adding a polished dimension to almost any look.

Show-off: If you would like to accentuate the design of an engagement ring’s, then investing in a good quality solitaire will put the focus on nuanced, carefully chosen details.

Perfect for your soulmate: Your one and only, your person – it’s not hard to see the symbolism captured inside of a solitaire diamond. Elegance and timeless simplicity of the solitaire diamond permeate the solitaire diamond ring, putting the focus on your one, true love.

Cons

Cost: Because the stone is the main event, a solitaire ring can be more expensive than other styles. It’s very common to spend more on the center stone than the ring. We at Vinca always recommend going for quality over carats: Having a solitaire diamond ring with maximum sparkle beats a lower-grade stone any day. To maximize your budget, consider adding two accent stones to the side of your solitaire center stone, or amplify size and sparkle with a halo of smaller stones. Either way, we can work with you to align your chosen style with your preferences and budget.

Popularity: The solitaire diamond ring is sought-after, which means you’ll see other people with a similar style on a regular basis. But don’t let this stop you: There’s a reason the solitaire ring is the most popular engagement ring style. It comes down to how the style is worn, and the personality of its wearer. Simplicity can also mean versatility in this case.
