The classic definition of a solitaire engagement ring is quite simple. Classically, it is a single diamond (any shape) which is mounted on a simple plain band, usually thin. 


Halo engagement rings have a diamond or gemstone mounted in the middle, which is usually surrounded by diamonds.  The center stone can be any shape or size. The stones that make up the halo should be set right next to the main stone, without any gaps.  

Three Stone

Three-stone engagement rings have been around for over 100 years. Usually the center stone is slightly larger than the ones framing it. Quite often the three stones will be the same shape, but not always. There are many combinations that can be quite beautiful, like an oval in the center, with a pear shape on each side. The pears are set horizontally so the point is facing out. Also, you can combine diamonds and gems. Have a diamond set in the center and flanked by rubies, for example. You can imagine all the combinations!


Marquise diamonds are making a comeback! Sometimes people call them the diamonds that are shaped like a football! They also look larger than round diamonds even though they weigh the same. In the ‘80s and ‘90s, marquise-shaped diamonds were the most popular shape after round diamonds. When cut beautifully, they are very elegant, and can make a shorter finger look longer and slimmer.
