Style expert Michael O’Connor recently reported to Weddingchannel.com, “Today’s celebrities tend to wear their engagement rings more, and although many are still interested in the size of the center diamond, they want their rings to be wearable.” Since the security of the of the center stone is of primary importance when the ring will be worn daily, platinum has become the favored metal for solitaire engagement ring settings for its durability and security.

A solitaire engagement ring can sound quite traditional, but there are many variations that can change the look of the simple setting. Princess and emerald-cut diamond solitaires are popular with many fashion-forward brides, including such celebrities as Eva Longoria Parker, Katherine Heigl and Ashlee Simpson. Seeing these simple diamond solitaires constantly in the pages of the fashion and celebrity gossip magazines have raised their profile in the eyes of many consumers.

Hollywood glamour

Of course, the giant rocks sported by movie stars and heiresses are not always practical for regular folks. But these days, you can get Hollywood glamour at an accessible price point, with solitaire engagement rings being one of the most affordable options. The solitaire setting itself can be had for a very reasonable price, and highly customizable diamond search features allow you to focus your budget on the diamond features that matter most to you. Although the platinum is pricier, a 14 or 18 karat white gold setting can get the same modern look for a fraction of the price. However, upgrading to platinum is the best way to get the long-lasting luster and durability that will take your solitaire engagement ring from accessory to heirloom.

 

 

So important to balance

Buying an engagement ring is an investment—in your relationship and in your future. Although trends are fun when it comes to a handbag or haircut, when it comes to buying an engagement ring, it’s important to balance fashion with timelessness, trendiness with classic style.
