Solitaire Engagement Rings with a Single Round Diamond Are Always in Style
Engagement rings set with a single round diamond are classic, always in style and never fading, no matter what the current trends might be.

At least one is bezel set. The metals differ, and some styles are available in more than one metal choice.
