Traditional-looking engagement rings all have one thing in common: the central diamond is the main focus of the ring.
For the rest, every engagement ring is free to follow its own rules, making each design very different from one another.
Solitaire Engagement Rings
A solitaire is the most classic and traditional engagement ring. The name "solitaire" comes from the french "alone", meaning that the center stone is the only element in the design. To show off its beauty, a solitaire is often set on a "pure" band, with 4 or 6 prongs.
