Cubic Zirconia Solitaire Engagement Rings
Ever since the world-renowned jeweller Tiffany’s & Co introduced the solitaire engagement ring more than a hundred years ago, it has given brides-to-be the goosebumps everytime they dream about their hand being adorned by one. Countless romantic narrations tell of the solitaire being offered to one’s betrothed. It is the archtypal engagement ring that speaks where words cannot express.
This may sound a little idealistic, but there is a strong feeling of romance in all of us and when a man looks for an engagement ring, very often, it is the solitaire ring which he himself feels will be the perfect engagement ring. A cubic zirconia solitaire engagement ring emulates this romance at a price that many can afford and for something so simple, the choice is quite remarkable.
Settling on a solitaire however is just the first step. One must then consider the finer details of the stone such at whether it should be round-cut, princess, emerald, asscher, cushion or marquise? Should it be 1 carat or 2? Should it be colorless or exude an enticing hue of blue or pink? These are important questions because the stone that graces a cubic zirconia solitaire engagement ring is going to be the centre of attention. There are no sidestones to distract attention or flanking stones to share centre-stage. It’s all about the one, single, solitary stone in the middle that symbolises the promise of one half to another in the bond of marriage.
Cubic Zirconia Solitaire Engagement Rings by Band
The only other part of a solitaire engagement ring that plays a part in making up the entirety of the ring is the band. Depending on your personal choice and possibly local tradition, yellow gold and white gold are generally the most typical choices. Silver bands can also be used to mount a cubic zirconia stone onto in case you are looking for a rock-bottom priced engagement ring. At the other end of the spectrum lies platinum, a metal that gives off a brilliant whiteness but is not cheap (it is in fact much more expensive than 24 karat gold). If you are unsure of what metal your band should be made of, go with a safe and sound gold cubic zirconia solitaire engagement ring.
Cubic Zirconia Solitaire Engagement Rings by Cut
Even though CZ stones are manufactured in laboratories and can therefore be cut in any shape or form, they are generally cut to imitate the most popular diamond gemstone cuts. These are the round-brilliant and the fancy cuts such as the Princess-cut, the Oval-cut and the Pear-shape amongst many others. A wide variety of choice is therefore available when it comes to picking out a CZ solitaire engagement ring.

Cubic Zirconia Solitaire Engagement Rings by Carat
Perhaps the most important aspect of a solitaire engagement ring is the carat of the gemstone. After all, the stone is playing the main role on the ring and the first thing people are going to notice when you put your CZ solitaire on, is its size. It is worth bearing in mind when looking at the jewel’s size, not to look at it in isolation. Rather, you need to consider how it would look when placed on your fiancee’s fingers as well. If she has small dainty hands for example, a 1 carat CZ solitaire may look quite sufficient but if her hands are quite large, a 1 carat stone is not going to look suitable and you may have to scale up to 2 or even 3 carats. Fortunately this is the beauty about buying a cubic zirconia solitaire engagement ring. The difference in price between carats is negligible so go ahead and choose according to look and not price! Just check out these meaty and captivating 2 Carat Cubic Zirconia Solitaire Engagement Rings set with a single stone that matches the size of 2 carat diamonds.
Cubic Zirconia Solitaire Engagement Rings by Type
Regarding engagement rings, purists will argue that solitaires cannot be comprised of any more than one gemstone. Thus eternity rings and sidestones are not ‘types’ of rings that we consider in this discussion. Hence, this section focusses solely on vintage CZ solitaire engagement rings that feature cool, interesting, trendy and artistic bands.
Cubic Zirconia Solitaire Engagement Ring Settings
And the choice doesn’t end there. The right setting in which the solitaire is held will do wonders to enhance the overall beauty of your cubic zirconia solitaire engagement ring by drawing focus to the single center stone and giving it all the attention it deserves. The prong setting for example, is one that grips the stone with two, four or six thin metal claws. The prongs raise the stone up off of the finger and into the air for all to admire and to allow maximum light to enter the stone.
Alternatively, the bezel setting is one in which a piece of metal partially or completely surrounds the stone to hold it in place and for this reason also affords a great deal of protection to the CZ stone.
No doubt, other engagement ring settings such as the cluster, sidestones, three-stone and a whole plethora of others have an appeal, but there is something inexplicable in the unadulterated pureness of the solitary stone that stands prominent and proud on an engagement band that has sparked the imagination of every woman since their childhood.
