Those who want to purchase a solitaire diamond ring, either for an engagement ring or wedding ring, or even only for a fashion statement, will have to decide on three components of a solitaire diamond ring: setting, metal and diamond. Setting for solitaire diamond ring can vary from the simplest design to the most elaborated design.

The metal used to construct the band should have a good durability, not only highlight the best features of the diamond. The most popular metal used for a solitaire diamond ring is sterling silver, but you can also choose other metals which provide more benefits. Platinum is one of metals praised for the strength and purity which provides durability and protection for your solitaire diamond ring. However, the supply for platinum is not too many which makes it one of the most expensive metals. Yellow gold and white gold will cost less than platinum, even though their durability is lower than platinum. Titanium is also a popular choice, especially for those who have allergic to certain metals or sensitive skin. It is hypoallergenic and as strong as steel but feels as light as aluminium. Solitaire Diamond Ring

The most important aspect you should pay attention for is the diamond. Remember that the quality and the price of diamond are commonly determined by 4C’s which is cut, colour, clarity and carat. A good cut indicates how good the diamond reflects light; it will be seen in the proportion and the symmetry of the cut. The more colourless or whiter the colour of the diamond, the more you should pay for the price. However, diamond comes in several colours other than white and many women prefer fancy colour diamonds such as pink, yellow, and black. Diamond with a good clarity will have fewer inclusions and flaws, or the inclusions and flaws are not visible with naked eye. Solitaire Diamond Ring
