Diamond solitaire jewellery highlights the brilliant beauty of diamonds by taking a single gemstone and placing it in an attractive setting. Classic favourites include engagement rings and pendants.
Though most solitaires use a single large diamond, some models include "accent" stones, smaller diamonds, or other gemstones. In either case, it remains the centrepiece, which is why experts recommend paying attention to its cut and clarity. Popular cuts include round brilliant, emerald and pear, with the former being the most radiant.
