Elegant, understated and a future heirloom

If the recipient has a taste for elegant and understated design, then a solitaire ring could be the right option. A diamond solitaire is unlikely to clash with any of her other jewellery, or any of her favourite items of clothing, and a well-designed solitaire should be a timeless classic that could one day be a gift that your granddaughter would be delighted to receive.

Choosing the right stone is critical

With a stripped back, simple design like a solitaire, a good quality diamond or coloured gemstone is essential, so it’s well worth taking a little time to make sure you choose a stone that delights you. For guidance on how to choose a diamond, please read our guide to the Four Cs. Alternatively, you may wish to read our guidance on sapphiresrubies or emeralds.

In addition to choosing whether to go with a diamond or a coloured gemstone, you will also need to decide on the shape of gem that you would like. Most solitaires are set with round brilliant cuts, however princess cuts are also very popular, followed by emerald cuts and cushion cuts

Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better

While the quality of the diamond or gemstone is important, so too is choosing a gem of the right size. Typically, a larger finger is flattered by a slightly wider band, but this may require a bigger stone for it to remain in proportion. In contrast, a really dainty band might suit a very slim finger, and will work well with a smaller gem. However, these are only rough guidelines, not a firm rule, and lifestyle can be just as important. Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better — every client has to come to their own decision about the size that works well for them.

A classic claw setting is not the only option

In a classic solitaire, the diamond is held in place by claws, but this is not the only option – if you prefer a more modern style, you could opt for a tension setting, a rub-over setting, or a swirl.

While a claw setting works well with a diamond or gemstone of almost any size, if you’d prefer a tension setting or a swirl, we find these tend to work best with gems up to about 0.6ct.

If you do go with a classic claw setting, you might face a decision over how many claws to have – if a round brilliant cut diamond is set in four claws, this will tend to square off its appearance, whereas a six claws setting will emphasise its roundness. An eight-claw setting might be the way to go if you prefer an old-fashioned look.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, or to discuss commissioning your own bespoke engagement ring design.

Why is ethical sourcing so important?

Without proper ethical sourcing, you may unwittingly buy a blood diamond, helping finance criminal armies in war-torn areas. The only way to guarantee a diamond is ethical is to go beyond the flawed  Kimberley Process and trace it to its source, which we do for all of our diamonds.

Ethical sourcing also means protecting the environment and human rights, which is why we use recycled or Fairtrade gold, as well as Fairmined silver and recycled platinum.
