The New Solitaire: Why Understated Luxe Is This Season's Engagement Ring Trend

The new diamond solitaire is all about understated luxe, minimalist styling, and clean silhouettes. When it comes to solitaire engagement rings, simple styles don't need to be boring. Moving away from white diamonds in favour of a coloured gemstone or stormy grey diamond adds a fresh feel; as can using unusual or more minimalist setting techniques. The task of creating something unique and beautiful using just a single stone and little metal is not easy, but the jewellers we've selected here have mastered the art of detail - a perfect setting, an ususual diamond, secret set stones...the modern solitaire is far from standard.
