Tips For Buying a Three-Stone Engagement Ring

Three-stone rings provide a lot of room for personalization, and as such, while you create your ring you will have a lot of decisions to make. Here are a few tips for working out the details.

Complimenting Shapes — Three-stone engagement rings are popular for many reasons, but one of their biggest draws is that they are highly customizable. However, choosing three center stones can feel overwhelming. If you’d like to narrow your choices down, consider keeping the shapes of the stones similar. If you would like an oval- or round-cut center stone, choose circular supporting stones. If you’ve decided on a cushion-cut center stone, square-shaped diamonds beside it will continue the linear look.

Band It All Together — Next, you’ll need to choose your band. Does your loved one have a simple style or are they a little more glamorous? If traditional is the name of the game, stick with a plain band and let the three diamonds take the spotlight. If your partner likes some extra glitz, add a pavé band for the kind of sparkle that will leave them breathless.

Add a Pop of Color — Whether you’ve chosen to stick with a plain band, or you’re hoping to add complementary diamonds, you also have a choice of band color. At Clean Origin, all rings are available in white, yellow and rose gold. So, even if you want the band to be a bit more simple, you can still add a pop of color for a unique final piece.

History of Three-Stone Engagement Rings

As one of the more recent diamond designs, the three-stone engagement ring wasn’t actually invented until the early 2000s. Yet, this trend has already grown into one of today’s most popular choices. Three-stone engagement rings are some of the most meaningful rings you can give your loved one. The three stones can stand for friendship, love, and fidelity, or the past, present, and future. Devout couples might even consider the stones to represent religious sentiments. These rings are also popular because of their versatility; any combination of diamonds, cuts, and carat sizes can be used to create a unique engagement ring that speaks to a couple’s relationship. For the modern couple, a three-stone ring is a perfect choice.
