Solitaires 300 and 400 series

There are only three types of engagement rings. Various “designs” you see in jewelry stores belong to one of these three categories modified by adding non-essential decorative elements. The basic styles are:

  • Solitaire
  • Halo
  • Three-stone

A solitaire is essentially a holder for a stone of any shape or type. When a solitaire is set with traditional bright-cut style pave it belongs to the Series 300, and modern pave to the Series 400.

More on pave styles here.

400-series

The legendary Series 400 engagement rings by Leon Mege put the universe’s sheen and splendor right at your fingertips. All our Series 400 engagement rings are custom designed and could feature unique elements that are not the requisite parts of the design.

The style is based on a traditional solitaire design enhanced with a various number of pave rows. Series 400 features a modern style of pave. 

Each style number in the series indicates how many rows of pave the ring has. The middle digit tells the number of rows on the ring’s head. The last digit tells the number of rows on the ring’s shank.

  • 401 – one row of pave on the shank, plain basket, example r7992
  • 403 – three rows of pave on the shank, plain basket, example r6255
  • 410 – one row of pave on the basket, plain shank, example r6969
  • 411 – one row of pave on the shank, pave on the basket, example r7749
  • 413 – three rows of pave on the shank, pave on the basket, example r7977

Leon Mege 411 Solitaire style is by far the most popular engagement ring style with millennials.

Additional variations of Series 400 are pretty rare. For example, the version with multiple rows of pave on the basket. Another example is a shank set with an even number of pave rows.  Or a shank with more than three rows of pave.
