The center of your attention

Marriage is all about two souls coming together as one. Why not celebrate the romance with a solitaire engagement ring? Featuring a single stone as the center of attention, this is one of the most popular and enduring ring styles, adored by generations of brides-to-be. Classically simple designs to ones with a bit more flare, our future wives and husbands customized their rings to their unique tastes and one-of-a-kind personalities, creating an engagement ring they can cherish for a lifetime.


What better way to show your passion for your lover than with a ravishing solitaire ruby? Smoldering in a deep red, the dark color is enhanced by the sparkly diamonds falling down the yellow gold band. Martin requested to incorporate filigree works for a subtle vintage vibe, and our designers thought the addition of a trellis setting would give the final touch of sophistication.


The solitaire stone in this yellow gold engagement ring found a cushy spot in its unique four prong setting. The cushion cut moissanite is, naturally, the center of attention and nobody can keep their paws off it, especially not those triple-claw prongs. Look closely between the prongs and you’ll spot a constellation of moissanite accents for a little extra razzle dazzle to this understated ring.


At first glance, you might take this for a one-note engagement ring. After all, the stunning solitaire diamond steals the show with its scintillating facets. However, along the upper band of the basket setting, a halo of diamond accents harmonizes with the main stone and foretells the sweet sound of wedding bells in this couple’s near future.


Alexander hit a hole-in-one with this engagement ring for his fiancée, Caitlin. The solitaire stone is on the green with its rich emerald sitting on a bed of diamonds. Inspired by his future wife’s necklace, the matching wedding band shimmers with diamond accents and curves into a pendant-like marquise cut diamond. We wish our smitten couple fairways and greens for the rest of their days!


The rectangular shape of the radiant cut solitaire diamond creates a beautiful frame for this picture-perfect engagement ring. Set on a delicate band in a cool white gold, a hidden halo creates a fun surprise for anyone curious enough to look. Scattered diamond accents dance under the shadow of the center stone and add a bit of fun to the elegant ring.


Our next groom-to-be is quite the charmer, giving his future wife a beautiful engagement ring and flower all in one! A light pink oval cut morganite blossoms from inside the ring’s lotus flower-like setting. The white gold band splits to create shoulders that support the center setting and add a modern twist to the overall design.


The idea of popping the question gives us butterflies in the stomach, but our next groom-to-be decided to embrace those delicate insects. On either side of the center stone, hidden butterflies flap their wings, creating swirling gusts of filigree that decorate the yellow gold band. Between filigree, milgrain dotting the edges of the band, and the unique decorative setting for the solitaire oval cut diamond, this ring is sure to set Greg’s fiancée’s heart aflutter.


Unlike the fiery passion of the first ring’s deep red ruby, this last engagement ring’s light pink sapphire gives warm, loving vibes. Kurt chose the solitaire stone, and rose gold band, to match his significant other’s gentle, kindhearted personality. Two shoulders-full of pavé-set diamonds spoil the engagement ring while a tiara-like array of diamonds give the matching wedding band the royal treatment.
