Solitaire Engagement Rings

Updated on January 2, 2010

One of the most traditional engagement rings is the solitaire engagement ring. These types of rings come in a wide variety: diamond, white/yellow gold, platinum and even cubic zirconia!

Depending on the materials used in a solitaire ring, the price could be as affordable as $30 and as much as $1,000 or more. The biggest factor in prices is the quality of the diamond and whether the band is platinum.

What Sets Solitaire Engagement Rings Apart from Other Rings?

The primary thing that sets this type of engagement ring apart from different engagement rings (such as three diamond engagement rings) is that the stone is the focal point of the ring.

Some modern solitaire engagement rings now include small stones (usually diamonds) within the band itself, but the primary stone is still the focal point. Most solitaire rings just have a single diamond in them, however.

Why Get a Solitaire Engagement Ring?

There are two reasons why you might want to consider purchasing a solitaire engagement ring over a different type of ring: price and symbolism.

Typically, these types of engagement rings are less expensive because you're only getting one diamond (in most cases). So you could either spend less money on the ring or you could spend the same amount as with other rings, but get a really big single diamond for the ring.

Single stone rings are also a great buy because they symbolize the oneness of love and marriage. Not only that, the diamond really stands out or "pops" because it's the focal point of the ring. Just like the diamond stands out amongst all else, your girlfriend also stands out amongst the other girls, right?

Where Can I Get a Solitaire Engagement Ring?

Surprisingly, Amazon has a great selection of solitaire engagement rings from every price range, style and design. I've chosen some of the most popular, highest rated and best rings and listed them below. Most of these rings are resizable (+/- one ring size) and come with full certification paperwork.
