The wedding day is said to be one of the most important days in a person’s life. The two tie the knot, promising each other to walk through the fun as well as the hard times that may come. They are in love and ready to face the world. However, there is another important moment before all this can take place—the proposal! Without the other's ‘Yes’ your future is uncertain. So, to make the moment as perfect as possible, you will have to make some serious effort and look for the perfect diamond ring to dazzle your beloved one with as you pop the question.

A quest for the perfect diamond solitaire ring

The purchase of an engagement ring is a huge deal. It is not simply a piece of jewelry for your future partner. She is not just going to wear it once in a blue moon. No, they will spend the rest of their lives wearing the diamond you chose that day. It is a symbol of love and commitment. So, not to put too much pressure on the one buying the ring, but knowing what your partner likes helps. Another great tip is to learn everything there is to know about the different diamond cuts, designs, colors, and quality and match all of that with her personality. (It sure is a daunting task… Tip: learn everything about the 4 C’s at our Royal Experience)

Thus, after guessing or finding out what they prefer ring wise, and if it just happens to be a Diamond Solitaire Ring, you are in luck! Royal Coster Diamonds offers a beautiful variety of diamond solitaires. The term “solitaire” refers to a single diamond placed into the crown of the ring. There are no other diamonds or gems surrounding it. It is a simple, yet graceful and classy design, but also a safe choice for clueless future fiancées, who are having difficulty deciding on the perfect style.

Different diamond solitaire shapes

No matter what the size of the diamond, it always starts out as a rough, uneven stone. It is handled by master diamond cutters, who shape it into specific designs. The Solitaire diamond comes in different shapes and sizes. Some of these designs are:

  • Round solitaire – round brilliant cut diamond,
  • Princess solitaire – square princess cut diamond,
  • Emerald cut solitaire – rectangular step cut diamond,
  • Oval solitaire – akin to the round brilliant but a bit elongated,
  • Marquise solitaire – boat or tear-shaped with pointed ends,
  • Heart solitaire – the most romantic heart shaped cut.
