Here at Knox Jewelers, we tend to see all of our custom created design as miniature works of art. While some ring’s attractiveness can not be denied with their intricate detailing and elaborate silhouettes. Others deliver a powerful statement of beauty with their subtle simplicity and clean lines.
Standing the test of time, an elegant diamond solitaire will never go out of style. Selecting a simple engagement ring does not limit the ways you can personalize it to your taste. With metal selections, setting styles and rows of stacked wedding and anniversary bands, your ring can stand out from every other. A custom created engagement ring solitaire can be elegant and simple, as well as unique to you.
Our Classic Solitaire engagement ring has always been, and most likely will remain, one of the most sought after and well loved settings we offer. The uncomplicated design allows the focus to remain on the brilliance and beauty of whatever center stone you hand pick to be featured within its four prongs. The Classic Solitaire is timeless, elegant and a great blank canvas to display a one-of-a-kind diamond or colored sapphire.
We have numerous variations of the classic solitaire available that have been customized with differing setting styles, band shapes, textures and hand engraving. Small details in solitaire engagement rings, like the shape of your center stone or your precious metal selection, are modest alterations that could truly reflect your personal taste and style. By trying out gemstone and metal pairings distinct to you, you may discover a subtle variation on a classic style that perfectly represent you and your relationship. Listed below are solitaire engagement rings grouped by differing center stone setting styles, which would be an important determining factor is the final look of your custom design. Any of the designs listed below, or any others featured on our website, can be crafted in your preferred precious metal and custom fitted around the center stone of your choosing.
Four Prong Solitaires
Four prong settings are the traditional approach to the solitaire engagement ring. Four prongs cover the minimal amount of your center stone, allowing more of the gemstone to be seen face-up. A kite set diamond, like the center image, is a variation on the four prong setting that rotates the prongs 45 degrees. This alteration offers a less ‘square’ look.
Multiple Prong Solitaires
Six or eight prong settings enhance the ’round’ look of a center stone and offer extra security compared to their four prong counterparts.
Double Prong Solitaires
Choosing four double-prongs to hold your center stone adds a regal vintage inspired look to any solitaire engagement ring.
Full Bezel Solitaires
A full bezel center setting is a very modern addition to a solitaire engagement ring. In a bezel setting, there are no prongs, instead a thin band of precious metal surrounds the center gemstone. This setting style is growing in popularity for its sleek look and contemporary feel. This setting style is extremely secure, as the center stone is completely enclosed. It can also allow for low-set engagement rings.
Half Bezel Solitaries
A half bezel center setting is the perfect compromise of elegance and security. A half bezel solitaire is still encompassed part way by smooth edges of metal but the center stone is not completely enclosed. A half bezel can be featured in may ways, straight or twisted like the images below.
