So, you are approaching the most critical moment in your life. At least, that’s what you believe at the moment. Recently, you made a decision and ready for the adornment that will connect the loving couple and will remove all your old buddies from the sofa in your living room as well. Well, it looks like it’s time to get straight to business—engagement rings. There are dozens of engagement ring names, types, and styles. It will mix all of them into a salad in the head of a regular person. That’s not what I want. So let me help you avoid this headache. We’ll make it simple. I promise.

Solitaire and Side Stones ring.
Solitaire comes from the Latin “Solitarius” and means “alone,” so as you can imagine to yourself, the solitaire ring means a single diamond or single gemstone ring.
The rest of the rings that come with side stones are called “side stones rings.”

It’s easy, isn’t it?

Let’s move forward - the shapes of the ring. Well, I believe no explanations are necessary. Strait, tapered, reverse tapered, pinched, flair, bypass. The image speaks by itself better of all.
The rest of the terminology describes the setting for center and side stones.

Classic or Prong setting is the most common setting for an engagement ring. When you hear about the Tiffany ring, it means the same classic prong setting. The prongs are forming a kind of a basket that secures the stone.
