75 Stunning Three Stone Engagement Rings For Every Style

Thanks to Meghan Markle, the multi-stone style is back

Updated 12/13/18

Meghan Markle may officially be royal but it was just a year ago that the soon-to-be Duchess was given her sparkling three stone engagement ring from Prince Harry, instantaneously spurring a resurgence of the classic engagement ring style. Got to love the Meghan Markle effect! Designed by Prince Harry himself, the center three-carat cushion-cut diamond from Botswana (where the couple vacationed for Meghan’s birthday earlier last year) is flanked by two round diamonds that belonged to Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, on a yellow-gold band. Made by Cleave and Company (the Queen's preferred jeweler) the meaningful ring design—which is a major departure from Kate Middleton’s stunning sapphire engagement ring—is now one of the most coveted among brides-to-be, with classic, modern, and fashion-forward designs flooding the market. What’s more, as Harry’s thoughtful design proves, three-stone engagement rings come with deeper meaning, traditionally symbolizing friendship, love, and fidelity—a perfect choice for couples who want their engagement story to be filled with meaning that is unique to their relationship.

Solitaire, two-stone, and double-band engagement rings have been some of the more popular designs for modern brides-to-be, but a three-stone engagement ring (also known as a trinity or trilogy ring) can appear just as contemporary as current designs. If you’re drawn to a modern-day version of the classic ring style, geometric stones like emerald, hexagon, square, shield, trillion, and Asscher-cut diamonds appear sleek and angular. For the alternative bride, unique settings will make a three-stone ring really stand out with whether you go for a mix of stone cuts side-by-side, opt for a double band design, or vertically stacked stones for a truly modern look. Another unconventional option is to stray from three white diamonds and incorporate color into your ring design with yellow, salt and pepper, or raw diamonds or gemstones like emeralds, opals, or pearls.

For more traditional tastes, round, cushion, princess, oval, marquise, and pear stones are lovely in combination whether you opt for all of the same stone or mix and match with different cuts. For a more budget-conscious ring style, a three-stone ring with a center stone and side baguettes will cost a lot less than three sizeable stones. Or, you can consider gemstones as a money-saving option that will make your ring stand out like the best of them. Vintage rings are another way to stand out and save a little cash—many Edwardian, Victorian, and Art Deco styles used smaller diamonds which come in well under $5,000.

Whether you want a replica of Meghan Markle’s three-stone engagement ring or prefer a modern design that’s uniquely you, ahead, browse the edit to see 75 of our favorite three-stone styles. These rings prove that three times really is the charm!
