What Is An Engagement Ring?
Any ring can be used or considered as an engagement ring. It doesn't need to be a diamond solitaire, in fact it doesn't need to contain any diamonds at all.
The Diamond Promotion Service, connected closely to De Beers, who market most of the world's diamond production have researched the history of engagement rings. Whenever you read about the history of them, you will probably find the same story, so we will not repeat it hear.
It may not be generally known, but the "tradition" of diamond engagement rings is under 150 years old, it did not come about until after the discovery of commercial size diamond deposits in South Africa in 1857, which made diamonds inxepensive enough to be available to the general public for the first time.
