Why are Solitaires so Classic?

According to the president of WP Diamonds, Andrew Brown, the most popular engagement ring style in the last 100 years is clearly a “round solitaire diamond, around one carat, set on a simple yellow-gold band.”

This is no surprise to the custom designers in our studio, since we’ve created hundreds of similar solitaires over the years. They’re a classic design afterall, even though some say solitaires are not as popular as they used to be. 

According to Bloomberg, this group of buyers are looking for less expensive, more unusual rings, leading to a big rise in the popularity of coloured diamonds, as well as vintage rings.

This may be true, but solitaires (we predict) will continue to possess classic appeal for many years to come. Here’s a recent custom designed solitaire everyone that’s caused everyone in our studio to ooh and aw.
