Solitaire Engagement Rings in Los Angeles
The origins of the modern engagement ring date back to 1477, when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy with a ring set with diamond flecks in the shape of an M. For centuries this stood as the traditional way to ask for a loved one’s hand in marriage, until more than 200 years later when the first tiffany-style diamond solitaire ring made its debut on a blushing bride. A new chapter in jewelcraft would begin, and proposals and engagement rings would be changed forever.
The first diamond solitaire ring broke tradition by setting a single beautiful diamond onto a precious metal band. This design featured the center gemstone prominently and allowed for maximum light play and sparkle. Until then ring designs had emphasized intricate settings, so it was a shift to place the attention on a single glittering gemstone. Because a solitaire engagement ring places the center diamond in the spotlight, it is imperative that you choose a gem that balances size, quality, and a shape will that help you achieve the perfect ratio. Although round brilliant shaped diamonds are the most popular choice for solitaire rings, remember that other shapes make beautiful solitaires and may actually offer more value. If your budget is limited, choose a square princess cut diamonds, which have a brilliance similar to that of round cuts. Or choose a less popular cut, such as the emerald and asscher cuts, which have less sparkle, but instead highlight a diamond’s clarity.
