Jewelry Jargon: What is a Solitaire Engagement Ring?

Classic Solitaire Engagement Ring Setting with 6 ProngsWhen it comes time for an important jewelry purchase, it is paramount to be familiar with jewelry terms in order to ensure that you are able to find exactly what you want. At deBebians, we carry a huge collection of engagement rings, and it is easy to feel a little overwhelmed at first. Today, I wanted to focus on the most classic type of engagement ring–the solitaire engagement ring. But what is a solitaire engagement ring?

A solitaire engagement ring features only one, solitary stone, such as the ring shown below. Often times our customers will refer to an engagement ring with side diamonds, such as a three stone ring, as a solitaire engagement ring. Even though the center stone is prominent, if a ring has any side or accent diamonds, it is not considered a solitaire engagement ring.

Please browse our entire collection of solitaire engagement rings to see additional designs. You may also view all of our engagement rings to view all of our collections. We have halo engagement rings, diamond accented, and more!

Are Rose Gold Engagement Rings Here to Stay?

Engagement rings come in a variety of precious metal options including white gold, platinum, yellow gold, and rose gold. Rose gold has recently experienced resurgence in popularity in all jewelry, including engagement rings and wedding bands. Will rose gold continue to be a popular choice for bridal jewelry or will this trend fade?

I may be a little biased–I have a rose gold engagement ring and eternity ring as my bridal set–but I think that rose gold jewelry will continue to be a favorite for many more years to come. Rose gold has been used for jewelry for centuries and looks classic and timeless instead of dated. Rose gold looks beautiful when paired with other rose gold jewelry, as well as mixed and matched with other precious metal colors.

We have a huge collection of rose gold engagement rings, rose gold wedding bands, and rose gold necklaces. We even offer our popular signet rings in rose gold.

Double Halo vs Single Halo Rings and Jewelry

Halo engagement rings and halo jewelry is very much in style. Today, I want to talk about double halo vs single halo rings and jewelry. Here at deBebians, we offer both designs from which you can choose. In my opinion, it comes down to personal preference and the overall style you are seeking. It seems pretty obvious, but really the only difference is if the ring has one halo (single halo) or two halos (double halo). Remember that adding a halo will increase the size of the overall presence of the piece so adding a double halo… well, you get the idea.  🙂

Here are a few of our most popular double halo and single halo rings and other pieces of jewelry…

  1. Round Halo Engagement Ring with Pave Accents
    Round Halo Engagement Ring with Pave AccentsFor those seeking a classic round single halo engagement ring, this is the one. This single halo ring features 0.40cttw of hand set pave diamonds, G color and VS clarity. We manufacture this single halo ring for any size center diamond so the fit will be perfect!
  2. Cushion Baby Split Double Halo Engagement Ring
    Cushion Baby Split Double Halo Engagement RingThis cushion double halo is probably our most popular of our double halo rings. We can set a variety of center stones into this ring setting, but most commonly clients are looking for a cushion double halo for a round center stone. If that’s what you are seeking, look no further than this ring!
  3. Pear Double Halo Diamond Necklace
    Pear Double Halo Diamond NecklaceWhen you think double halo vs single halo, you may be thinking about a piece of jewelry other than an engagement ring. If that’s the case, check out this double halo pear shape diamond pendant. This is just another example of a beautiful double halo piece of jewelry.

It seems pretty self explanatory, but here’s to hoping this clears up any confusion about the difference between double halo vs single halo rings and jewelry. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to call on us!

Large Family Crest Signet Rings

Recently, I had the pleasure to design a beautiful large family crest signet ring for one of our clients. The client started off emailing me their family crest and requested a large signet ring. She sent me a few signet ring pictures that had a family crest on them to give me an idea of what she was hoping for. After seeing the sample signet rings with lack of detailing, I knew I would blow her socks off. Below you will see the picture of her family crest.

family crestThe larger the family crest the more details I can add to the signet ring. We discussed different sizes for the face of the family crest and then I started to work on the design. Within 5 business days, I created a 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) and emailed her the CAD. Below you will find the 3D CAD I sent the client.

Family Crest RingMy client was very impressed with the detailing on the large signet ring CAD. She gave me the approval and I started the manufacturing process. We have a state of the art 3D printer that printed the ring. After the ring printed on our 3D printer, the ring went to casting. In this case the customer requested 14kt white gold.

We then polished the ring and that’s when the magic happens. Even though the ring looks amazing after we polished it, we took it to another level and had our master hand engraver go over the family crest and make it even nicer.

Below you will find the final product.  This ring was a true work of art and I know we are very lucky to have such a skilled hand engraver to finish this masterpiece for us.

family crest signet ringsThe customer received the large signet ring and she was extremely impressed with the fine craftsmanship of the piece. She even asked us to manufacture the family crest as pendants for her children because she loved it so much.

Let us help you design the perfect family crest signet ring.
