The solitaire ring with a brilliant is still the most popular. The brilliant is a round diamond where the stone has been cut into 57 facets for an optimal reflection and shine. But other types of cut also form part of the possibilities when you opt for a solitaire ring. You can, for example, opt for a solitaire ring with a square princess diamond.
And what would you say to a pear-shaped diamond? This playful shape looks a lot like a tear and makes the fingers look slimmer.
Which setting would be best?
The setting is the way in which the diamond is positioned and kept in place in the ring. There are various different possibilities for a solitaire ring. If you opt for a prong setting, the 4 or 6 prongs will be placed in such a way that the diamond will catch as much light as possible.
With the bezel setting the diamond is surrounded by metal, giving it extra protection against external influences. You can read more about the various different settings here
