    lol I always wonder about this too!  I have a solitaire, meaning a gold band and one big stone, so I am always surprised when others call theirs solitaire and have a pave band or something.  But hey, I am no expert!

    I don’t typically, though I can see why some do and some don’t. It’s confusing. But yeah, in my mind I think of solitaire’s as a single diamond with a plain band.

    A solitare by definition is one stone only, hence the name. Rings with 2 or more stones have other names entirely.

    I don’t consider them solitaires either. To me solitaire means one stone. One.

    I posted a poll about this months ago. Apparently it is called a fancy solitaire. I also always believed solitaire meant one stone.


    What do you consider a solitaire?

    I don’t get the whole fancy solitaire thing. Solitaire=1

    Hmm interesting, I have never heard of fancy solitaire as solitaire to me has always just meant one as in singular and nothing else; learn something new every day.
