Three-Stone Engagement Rings That Will Make You Swoon

A three-stone engagement ring offers triple the possibilities

Updated 04/05/17

Less common than a tried-and-true solitaire or sparkling halo, a three-stone engagement ring offers triple the possibilities. Mix and match different shapes or vibrant gemstones to create a memorable design that's all your own. Proportionally, the center diamond is usually the star of the show, and it's equal to the weight of the other two stones combined. However, you can opt for a more blended look with equally-sized diamonds or feature daintier accents instead.

In addition to their ornate appeal, three-stone rings also have a sentimental meaning—they represent the memories of the past, the gift of the present, and the joy of your future together. Alternatively, Trinity settings can also symbolize love, friendship, and fidelity.
