I have sadly typed this three times and each time the formatting came out super wonky 🙁
So short version—- I want to see pictures of your diamond solitaire rings, pretty please! My Mr. and I have an appointment at Tiffany’s coming up and I think I am leaning towards the classic solitaire.
Are they really practical or do you still have issues? I’m terrified of pave and tiny grooves/crevices. I want a ring that I don’t have to worry about 24/7. Thank you in advance! Can’t wait to drool over the pretties 🙂

- Wedding: April 2018 - Our Backyard
I had a classic Tiffany solitaire for my first marriage (from tiffany). I loved the traditional look and I never had issues. Well, once. I hooked a prong on a heavy door and it bent it. Took it to Tiffany and they fixed it free. I am going with a different style ring for my 2nd marriage but the classic Tiffany solitaire is still my fave! Congrats!

BalletParker: Thanks, daaaahling!!!!
OP, I’ve never had issues with the setting, but I’ve only had my e-ring since last October so my experience is more limited haha. I have banged it around a bit by accident, but that has more to do with my clumsiness than the setting itself. Right when I got it, I thought that I might take it in to get buffed/polished once a year, but honestly, it still looks as shiny as the day I got it, so I def don’t think that’s necessary. I have dropped it off at my local store for cleaning on 3-4 occasions so far 🙂 Happy ring searching!

Here is my ring by itself as well as the wedding band I get to start wearing next week! My fiance picked this with no input from me whatsoever – and I LOVE the simplicity. I probably wouldnt have picked this initially but am so in love with it that I’m glad I didn’t give input!
ETA – and I do think it’s low maintence and classic, so I say go for it. Mine has gotten banged around, pulled in our dogs’ leashes by accident etc and has had no damage whatsoever.

carnationsunshine: I wanted a simple solitaire as well. My ring is not T&Co but it is “Tiffany Style” if that makes sense. I wanted clean, classic, with a little funkiest to it. So I chose a 1ct pear. Congratulations and happy hunting! 🙂

This is my mother’s solitaire. It is over 50 years old and probably has not been rhodium plated in at least 30 years! As you can see through all the years that she wore it and now me wearing it as a right hand ring on occasion it still looks pretty good! I think solitaires are very low maintenance and remain classically beautiful.

Here is a picture of my Tiffany-style solitaire (Vatche U113) with my wedding band. I originally had a solitaire with a pave band, but had the diamond reset into this plain solitaire because the pave band was uncomfortable for me (scratchy prongs). The plain solitaire is super comfortable, and I was surprised to find that I preferred the look of it (over the pave setting) as well. Good luck and have fun with your search!! 🙂

Oh my gosh!! Thank you ladies! These solitaires make my heart beat a little quicker haha 🙂
Question for the ladies who have platinum: Is it a pain/ does the patina you? I don’t wear tons of jewelry and have never worn platinum (typically I’m a yellow gold girl). And thank yall again!! This is making me even more excited!

rubyrane: Just had to say I love your pear! I have a “special occasion” double halo pear so I have a soft spot for that shape <3

carnationsunshine: I have a platinum 6 prong solitaire, got engaged last October. I haven’t really been bothered by the patina. I do notice a difference when I bring it into the jeweler and they shine it up for me. But on a day-to-day basis I think that my ring is absolutely gorgeous.
I woudn’t change it for any other style. I’m in the medical field and didn’t want to deal with losing pave diamonds, or feeling like my ring had extra crevices for germs/bodily fluids (sorry TMI!). I’ve even worn my ring with gloves on and no problems so far!
First pic is from the day we got engaged. The remaining pictures are from the last several months. To me, I don’t see much of a noticable difference…

Here’s my Tiffany setting 🙂 I absolutely love it. You can buff any patina off with a flannel cotton polishing cloth. It never bothers me. I wear yellow gold mostly otherwise, I don’t mind mixing! Platinum doesn’t lose weight as it scratches like gold, and I love the heavy feel.
I love that it will last for generations, is low maintence and secure. I also enjoy the service at T&C. I get it steamed and buffed whenever I’m around one which is actually fairly often! (

I may or may not have saved some of y’all’s pictures on my phone to drool over… Thank you guys so much! My Mr. just told me he wants to go to the store by himself which makes me excited and nervous! Haha still hoping he changes his mind, but either way, yall have convinced me that I’m definitely leaning towards the classic 😊
