Traditional and highly romantic: the classic engagement ring
Have you found the love of your life? For a long time now, you have wanted to ask your partner the question of all questions. Classically, by candlelight, in a very special place and completely unexpectedly, you would like to ask for your partner's hand in marriage. What could better symbolise the magic of this wonderful moment, when two loving people make a promise of eternal fidelity to each other, than an engagement ring in a classic design? This ring option is ideal if you dream of a highly romantic and traditional engagement. The classic design will enchant not only you, but most importantly your partner with its simple elegance and beauty.
The classic engagement ring
When you think of a classic engagement ring, you usually have a beautiful solitaire ring in mind. Typically, these pieces of jewelry are simple and focus on a single gemstone that rests in a setting with six lobes. The stone appears to float above the ring band in this ring design. The translucent and airy setting further enhances the diamond's fire, which is awakened by the careful brilliant cut. The first solitaire ring was made by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1886. Within a short time, the solitaire established itself as a classic engagement ring and contributed significantly to the great success of today's internationally renowned jeweler.
Blue stone as a symbol of eternal fidelity
Although the design of the solitaire ring in the style of Tiffany is today considered the model for the classic engagement ring, the traditional proposal ring looked different in earlier times. The characteristic feature of this piece of jewelry was the blue gemstone. The blue of the stone, usually a sapphire, symbolizes fidelity and love and stands for a happy future of the loving couple. Originally, silver or yellow gold was used to make the ring band. From the middle of the 19th century, classic engagement rings were then also made of platinum, and white gold was added at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, the choice of classic engagement rings in the style of a solitaire ring is almost endless.
Precious cut stones crown the solitaire ring
The shape of the stone is a matter of individual taste. It can be heart-shaped, round or square. The stone does not necessarily have to be a diamond. Many couples today opt for rings made of yellow gold or the gold variants rose gold and white gold, which are adorned with a fiery cubic zirconia instead of a diamond. An expertly cut cubic zirconia is very similar to a diamond. But the price of the crystal is much more affordable. Of course, classic engagement rings do not necessarily have to be set with white stones. Combinations in which diamonds or cubic zirconia are combined with coloured stones such as blue sapphire or a deep red ruby are particularly striking.
