A solitaire ring setting features a single stone, typically a diamond. Solitaires are one of the most popular engagement ring settings. Their appeal is in their elegance, simplicity, and timelessness. The size and style of the band are important. A narrower band can have the effect of making a smaller diamond appear larger, and compliments small fingers. A thicker band gives more options in the way the diamond is set.
The round brilliant and the princess cut are the popular diamond shape choices for solitaire settings. Marquise, emerald cut, oval cut and pear-shaped stones can elongate the look of the gem, again making it appear larger than it actually is.
