The solitaire remains the most popular engagement ring. The center diamond assumes the spotlight, while the simple silhouette compliments any style the wearer may adopt. Any solitaire can later be "dressed up" with the addition of a diamond accented wedding band. Or, the solitaire engagement ring can act as a presentation setting; allowing the question to be "popped" in surprise. Weeks, months, or even years later, the recipient might decide to update the setting to something more ornate.
For this very reason, our most popular presentation solitaire is offered with a special One Year Exchange (details); allowing the proposer to proceed without having to ascertain exactly what setting the recipient would prefer until later. Even so, the vast majority of recipients choose to keep their solitaire engagement ring forever, based on its beauty and versatility.
