Three Stone Engagement Rings

More than merely beautiful, three stone engagement rings are rich with symbolism and personal significance. The three stones traditionally represent the past, present and future of a relationship, but can also be interpreted to stand for friendship, love and fidelity or even take on religious significance. If you’re looking for a ring with deeper meaning, three stone engagement rings should be at the top of your list.


There are lots of ways to get creative and personalize your three stone engagement ring. You can choose three equally sized stones, or flank a larger center stone with two smaller stones. All three stones might be diamonds, or you could include other stones you find beautiful or meaningful like a favorite color or a birthstone. To make your ring stand out consider using a variety of shapes, like matching an emerald cut center stone with a pair of baguettes or a round cut center stone with two pear shaped side stones. Also known as “trinity,” “trilogy,” or “trio” rings, three stone engagement rings have become a popular choice in recent years. In addition to their beauty and versatility, they give you a little extra bling on your ring!

The options are endless when you choose a timeless solitaire engagement ring. This style is an unmistakable symbol of betrothal, bringing the center stone to the forefront. And when the time comes to complete the bridal set, solitaire engagement rings are unmatched in their versatility – pairing beautifully with an array of wedding bands. Round cut diamonds are a classic choice for solitaire engagement rings, but more unconventional brides may choose a fancy shape such as princess, emerald, oval, marquise or pear. Once you choose your center stone shape, there are a number of setting styles to consider. Popular setting styles for solitaire engagement rings include prong, cathedral, semi-bezel and bezel. Brides who choose solitaire engagement rings tend to be loyal, devoted and committed.
