Have never gone out of style.
The classic solitaire setting as we know it today had its beginnings in the Tiffany & Co. atelier in 1886 when Charles Lewis Tiffany invented a brand new mounting meant to emphasize the central and most important feature, the diamond.
By definition a solitaire engagement ring has a single gemstone set in a prominent setting with a fairly simple band. Which creates a focal point that accentuates the central stone. There are sometimes a few accent diamonds. Prong, box, and bezel styles were most popular vintage solitaire settings. While a classic vintage Tiffany & Co. solitaire setting is set with prongs.
