A solitaire diamond engagement ring means the main diamond is set prominently on the ring setting to showcase its beauty and draw the eye. (There is no halo of diamonds around the main diamond.)  Even if the ring setting incorporates other stones, the center diamond is set in a way that it remains the main focus of the design.

Solitaire vs. Pavé Solitaire

Solitaire = Smooth, Plain Band 

Pavé Solitaire = Diamonds On Top Of The Band


The beauty of a diamond solitaire ring is found in its simplicity and its elegance.

The diamond solitaire setting is one of the most classic, timeless engagement ring settings. For this setting, the most popular diamond cut is a brilliant cut diamond like a round brilliant, or in the diamond in the video, a cushion cut solitaire. But any exquisite diamond will look stunning in this setting.

As you can see, the benefit of the solitaire setting is that the primary feature you notice is the main diamond itself. This is for the woman who values simplicity and elegance.
