The Precious stone for the Solitaire Engagement Rings
Since the centre stone will be the centrepiece of the ring, the type, shape and colour of your precious stone is the right place to start when looking for the right solitaire engagement ring. For most buyers, the diamond is a stone of choice. And that’s fine. However, sapphires, owing to their rarity and colour profile have been increasing in popularity in recent years. When considering your choice of the precious stone for a solitaire engagement rings, it is best to start with the 4-Cs of diamonds.
Cut: What kind of shape are you looking for in your precious stone. You can choose from a number of shapes from oval, heart, round, emerald, pear etc. The cut is especially important in solitaire engagement rings since the centre stone will be the only one. A good cut will help with the level of light that can reflect off the diamond. The same also applies to sapphires, as a well-cut sapphire will reflect the deep colours, adding a powerful glow to the solitaire engagement ring.
Colour: The colour of your precious stone will depend on a number of factors. In the case of diamonds, there are the D-Z scales: from light yellow to colourless. With the colourless diamonds commanding the highest price. In precious stones like sapphires, the opposite is in play. The greater the colour saturation, the higher the price. Provided you’re choosing naturally sourced sapphires.
Clarity: The clarity in precious stones refers to the number of imperfections in the gemstone contains. In diamonds, the clarity of the stone is measured by the GIA. Which ranges from ‘Flawless’ (the highest quality) to ‘Included’ (the lowest). Most of the imperfections in a precious are not always visible to the naked eye. Hence it can only be seen under microscopes by gemologists. In choosing a precious stone for your solitaire engagement the ring is best to go for a balance between colour and clarity.
Carat: The carat is of the stone determines its weight. The higher the carat, the stepper price. However, unlike diamonds, sapphires are denser, hence a smaller sapphire will be heavier than a larger diamond. Sapphires are a good option if you’re looking a large precious stone that communicates luxury, but that comes from a competitive price.
Solitaire Engagement Ring Designs
Once you have made your choice of precious stone and metal of choice, the next step is the design of your solitaire engagement ring. For solitaire engagement rings, there are a number of popular design styles to choose from. From prong, where the precious stone is held in the claw-like grip. Which helps to accentuate the ring.
The cathedral design, which maintains a classical aesthetic: where the metal slopes hold the gemstone inside that keep it firmly in place. The prominence of the ring held at the centre.
In the bezel setting, the metal totally surrounds the precious stone, which is a more modern option, that keeps the stone firmly in place. For those who are engaged in an active lifestyle, this is a great choice. There is also the tension style of solitaire rings. Which is a new trend, where the ring is held in place between the surrounding metal frames. An interesting choice for those who want to communicate something out of the ordinary, via their choice of engagement ring.
