The Jens Hansen Solitaire

It Starts with You

Your love is precious, and the rings you wear should showcase that. Our Jens Hansen DIF Solitaire engagement ring combines the best diamond quality with the world’s most precious metals.

It is every girl’s dream to be able to wear an engagement ring that is truly special and it is every man’s wish that he picks her the perfect one. To help we have created the Jens Hansen DIF Solitaire, a ring specifically for the customer that values quality and flawless perfection.


Get the right answer when you propose with the perfect diamond. You can’t go wrong with The Jens Hansen DIF Solitaire – a stunning diamond engagement ring in a timeless design.

What makes a Jens Hansen DIF Solitaire the perfect engagement ring choice?

Our Jens Hansen DIF Solitaire rings use D colour Internally Flawless diamonds. These are the most transparent  of diamonds — no visible flaws at 10-power magnification and no discernible body colour — and because of those qualities, it represents the very pinnacle of the diamond pyramid.


"Only 1% of diamonds are given the grading of D,IF by the GIA (Gemmological Institute of America)."

 Your Jens Hansen DIF Solitaire engagement ring will come with a GIA certificate. The GIA report represents the highest standard of reliability, consistency and integrity in the industry. You will also receive a valuation for insurance purposes and the Jens Hansen Perfect Ring Guarantee*.

"Only a select few own a DIF diamond and most people will never even see one in their lifetime."



We have selected classic engagement ring styles that capture the intensity and beauty of these diamonds. Each design is set into platinum, one of the rarest metals on earth.
