Diamond solitaire rings are the most popular engagement ring style, and for good reason. They are classic, timeless, elegant and look great on everyone. But if you ever find yourself wishing that your solitaire diamond ring had just a bit more pizzazz, check out these ring enhancers and wraps that can add a touch of glamour to even the most modest diamond solitaire.
In keeping with the pavé set band of the center ring, this enhancer adds two more rows of pavé stones to up the drama of the ring without distracting from the center stone.
A ring enhancer is a specially designed ring that is worn together with a diamond solitaire, adding small stones and design elements to the simplicity of the diamond solitaire to form one cohesive look. A ring enhancer, or wrap, can blend seamlessly with the solitaire to make it look bigger and more interesting.
An oval-shaped diamond solitaire requires a custom ring enhancer, like this one, which uses channel-set accent stones to play up the center stone without overwhelming it.
A ring enhancer is a great way to wear an heirloom diamond solitaire and still make it your own. It can also be a great way to dress up a simple ring for special occasions, while still retaining the ability to wear it alone for everyday occasions. This is a great option for someone who can’t decide whether she wants a simple ring for everyday or a fabulous one for parties.
This yellow gold ring enhancer takes a simple diamond solitaire and transforms it into a one-of-a-kind design.
A wrap is a ring enhancer that wraps around the diamond solitaire ring, adding additional stones to either side. An insert ring is a larger ring which contains a space for the diamond solitaire to slide into. Either style of ring enhancer makes a great anniversary gift, or a wonderful way to commemorate renewing your vows.

When you choose your ring enhancer, make sure you know the size and shape of the diamond solitaire it will be worn with. Make sure there will be room for the center stone to fit, and that the style will not overwhelm the diamond solitaire. Make sure the metal coordinates and that the accent diamonds match the center stone. Decide if you want to wear the enhancer instead of the wedding band or in addition to it, and whether you want the center diamond solitaire to remain a focal point.
