Ring enhancers are specialized items of jewelry meant to improve the appearance of solitaire rings by embellishing them with more stones and providing support. Usually ring enhancers wrap around or above the solitaire to give the appearance of a single ring.
Ring enhancers, in addition to supporting solitaire rings, can also be used as wedding bands.

The result is quite flattering and provides a coherent look consistent with the progress of an engagement toward the wedding.

You could also, however, choose to match a yellow gold solitaire ring with a white gold enhancer for an impressive and progressive dual-tone look.
This is entirely a matter of choice. You may want to embellish your diamond solitaire with a few colored stones on the enhancer, opt for a flattering similar stone look or go for a multi-colored stone setting. The key is to visualize the final setting either with custom jewelry artwork of by trying on different enhancers. You might even want to choose an enhancer that turns your solitaire engagement ring into a traditional 3-stone arrangement.

However, when you’re buying the separately, you need to pay special attention to getting the size right. A wrong sized enhancer will not only look out of place but could potentially damage both your solitaire ring and your fingers.
