A solitaire engagement ring is a classic and timeless style of ring and is flawless for that special moment when you propose.

When it comes to choosing the perfect engagement ring for your future husband or wife, the list of things to be taken into consideration is endless.

Should the engagement ring you present to your desired life partner cost one month's or two months' salary? Should you choose the ring, or let your fiancé(e) pick? Do you want a diamond or a gemstone ring? Which metal will compliment the jewel in question? Should you purchase the ring online or in store? Will this engagement ring suit the wedding band?

When there are so many options to consider, sometimes the best choice of ring is a timeless and effortless one. A solitaire diamond ring is a classic style of ring that exudes an eloquent message of true love and commitment in an incredibly unexaggerated way.

Although you cannot really go wrong when it comes to matching the shape of a diamond to your desired solitaire setting, the quality of the diamond's cut should never ever be compromised. We will help find the perfect solitaire diamond engagement ring that is perfect for you and your life partner.


Round Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring

Presenting your loved one with timeless diamond ring as a symbol of an unbreakable and enduring commitment of love was first done by Archduke Maximillian of Austria in 1477. He had commissioned the very first diamond engagement ring for his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy, therefore sparking a trend of aristocracy presenting diamond engagement rings as an emblem of love. 

In a solitaire ring, the diamond should always be the main focus of attention, and a round solitaire diamond engagement ring will allow exactly that. This simple yet striking design features a 6 claw setting that gives this immaculate solitaire ring extra detail and protection. The classic cut and the diamond's beautiful brilliance makes this ring one of the most popular solitaire diamond engagement rings.
