The diamond solitaire is the engagement ring par excellence yet does this explain why it is more expensive than another?

Not entirely. Surely the great demand justifies the price, but we must admit that it is a full-fledged valuable stone.

The famous 4Cs that determine its quality must have higher values according to the size of the gem. Cut, clarity and color affect its cost, because imperfections admitted on little stones are not as well tolerated on big diamonds in which they would be evident. The number of carats is then decisive to establish the price. It is obvious that a large diamond has a greater weight than others destined to small frames, and a big gemstone is more expensive than many tiny ones. This explains the greater cost of the diamond solitaire among all the numerous engagement rings.

It is easy to discover the unequivocal meaning of a solitaire ring in white gold but also in yellow or even pink rose, with the classic round cut or in more extravagant shapes such as square, rectangular, pear or heart ones. The woman who wears it is as precious to her man as much and more than the magnificent gem on her finger.

How do I choose the right diamond for my engagement ring? Since the appearance of the diamonds depends mainly on their cut, it is there that you must focus your attention.

The round one is the most classic and with the greatest amount of light, but also the princess cut is not lacking in brightness. Moreover, its square lines add a note of contemporaneity. Instead the rectangular diamonds are perfect for vintage jewelry, whereas those with an emerald cut have an elegant and refined appearance suitable for noble jewels. They emit less fire or spark than round diamonds yet they are more transparent. Oval, marquise and pear-shaped diamonds help the fingers to look long and thin thanks to their elongated appearance. Finally, heart-shaped diamonds carry an unmistakable message and are often favored by incurable romantics.

Solitaire and diamond: which is the difference?

Solitaire and diamond: which is the difference? Common language often alters the original meaning of words, so often today people speak inappropriately of a solitary ring even when its stone is any colored gem.

Without detracting from the beauty of these precious ones, they certainly cannot be confused with the gems par excellence. Diamond is the most durable stone that nature has ever produced. If put into expert hands, it can give off an unparalleled light. This explains why the wrong definition can almost be considered sacrilegious to the ear of a gemologist.

So, a solitaire engagement ring is nothing but a ring topped by a single central diamond. It will then be the imagination of the goldsmith or your requests to favor originality thanks to the choice of the setting and the cut of the gemstone.
