What Is a Solitaire?
In the context of jewelry, a solitaire is a piece of jewelry that contains a solitary gemstone. Although, a solitaire could be any kind of jewelry decorated with a single piece of gemstone, the term has come to be hijacked by rings, and the design, a trademark of engagement rings. Today, the word solitaire is popularly used within the jewelry industry to refer to engagement rings carrying a single diamond.
But the word “solitaire” in the context of rings does not refer to any particular diamond shape. Although round Cushion and princess cut diamonds are face of solitaire rings anywhere on the planet, a solitaire can be a stone of any shape. A solitaire can be made using other new diamond cut. Heart, oval, cushion, baguette and emerald are very popular as solitaire cuts at this point. Once considered a distraction, fancy cuts have now stepped into the bigger arena competing stoutly with the more classic shapes like round, Cushion and princess cuts. People have come to admire and accept these shapes for reasons beyond just aesthetics. Some of these shapes have the advantage of size which makes affording a solitaire easier than other stones. Some are delightfully cheaper than the classic cuts which makes them an easy choice for buyers.
Why a Solitaire?
Despite their popularity, some people are not fully convinced as to why they should go for a diamond solitaire ring when proposing where there are so many other equally attractive designs on display.

So that’s part of the reason why you want to go for a solitaire when proposing to your ladylove.
Another reason why people side with solitaire engagement rings is because these rings somehow define engagement jewelry. Diamonds have come to find such a deep connection with romance and matrimony that it is seen as a very emblem of love and commitment.
