What is a solitaire engagement ring?

A solitaire ring is a type of jewelry, specifically a type of ring, that features a single, usually prominent gemstone set on a band. The term "solitaire" comes from the French word for "alone" or "isolated," which aptly describes the design of this ring.

The most common gemstone used in a solitaire ring is a diamond, but it can also feature other precious gemstones like sapphire, emerald, or ruby. The gemstone is typically set in a way that maximizes its visibility and allows light to pass through, showcasing its brilliance and sparkle.

Solitaire rings are popular choices for engagement rings, where the single gemstone represents the unity and uniqueness of a romantic relationship. The simplicity and elegance of a solitaire design often allows the focus to be on the beauty and quality of the featured gemstone.
