Solitaire Engagement Rings

Choosing solitaire engagement rings will probably be one of the most important decisions of your life, either for yourself or your partner and this is why you need as much help and advice as possible. Until that special time arrives, unless you have a specific idea of what you want in an engagement ring, then it is a bit of a minefield and the possibilities and choices are endless. What sort of ring design do you choose? What precious stones should you have in your engagement ring? What precious metal?

Solitaire Engagement Ringsontemporary Solitaire Engagement Rings are still as popular a choice as the classic diamond solitaire engagement rings. A solitaire engagement ring from Pruden and Smith is a wonderful choice to make, considering this design goes back such a long time, being the original choice for an engagement ring, as our designs do give a contemporary take on the traditional solitaire engagement ring.

At Pruden and Smith, platinum is our preferred metal choice, because of it’s brightness and hardwearing properties. Our platinum engagement rings are beautifully designed and created especially for you in mind and will perfectly complement the diamonds or other precious stones that you choose.

If you love the colour of gold however, we use 18ct yellow for it’s great colour in combination with a much safer rubover setting or platinum claws and have a lovely collection of gold engagement rings as well.

Take a look at our lovely selection of solitaire engagement rings and if you don’t see exactly what you want, then please make an appointment with our designer Rebecca Smith, online, by phone on 01273 846338 or in our gallery in East Sussex. Rebecca will guide you through the commissioning process from creating your dream design to helping you to understand diamond certification grades. The knowledge we give you means you can be sure that you are getting the very best in design, craftsmanship and materials along with a perfect fit, both on your finger and with your wedding band.

So, you can either have a design created especially for you, or you can choose from the absolutely stunning range of solitaire engagement rings we have already designed and created in our Ditchling workshops, near Brighton in East Sussex.
