Buying a Diamond solitaire engagement ring

A diamond solitaire ring is designed to show off a single, beautiful diamond to its maximum advantage. Identify the best deal before you buy your diamond solitaire engagement ring.

Once you have chosen your diamond, you will need to look into the ring setting, choosing one which showcases and compliments the diamond shape and colour. Solitaire rings are set in varying metals -  White Gold, Yellow Gold and Platinum are the most precious and widely seen. You can choose from our diamond solitaire rings collection or decide to create your own unique diamond solitaire ring with our bespoke service.

The setting is the way in which the diamond is held by the ring. A prong setting – also called a claw setting – is the most common option for a diamond solitaire ring. More prongs usually means a slightly more secure setting, but fewer prongs enable a little bit more light to reflect on the diamond – thus creating more sparkle and making the diamond stand out more.

A diamond solitaire ring is an investment as well as a piece of jewellery to treasure forever. Our engagement ring and diamond experts will be delighted to help you find the perfect diamond solitaire ring, and they are available for live chat (online, on the phone or in person) 7 days a week.
