Three Stone Engagement Ring Design

Traditionally, the three stone engagement ring setting featured round brilliant diamonds in a standard 2:1 ratio. Is this outdated? Not at all, but know that three stone engagement rings are now whatever you want them to be. A larger centre stone flanked by two smaller diamonds is ideal for a delicate and feminine design that heroes the larger stone. More of a bold, bigger-is-better kinda soul? Three equally or similarly large stones say audacious before you’ve even opened your mouth. Own your style when it comes to three stone engagement rings. Your trilogy, your way.

Three Stone Engagement Ring Design Inspiration

Round diamonds might be the popular pick for most engagement ring designs, but we’re here to tell you that trilogy engagement rings look fabulous with whichever diamond cuts you choose. Many of our signature three stone engagement rings feature fancy cuts, from radiant to emerald, tapered baguette and oval, and are absolutely BOSS. Note too that the stones don’t have to all be the same; some of the best three stone engagement rings mix and match with different diamond cuts and gemstones. Diamonds, sapphires or emeralds make sensational choices for the central stone, especially when offset with the cool tones of a white gold or platinum band. But of course, there’s no wrong combo – what matters is that it resonates with you.

Finding the right mounting for your design is key to ensuring that your three chosen gems are properly showcased. Our bestselling three stone engagement ring design, the Banksia, features a delicate and flower-like setting style, which heroes the three gemstones whilst championing a uniquely feminine design. Another of our three stone ring designs, the Grevillea, is set with an ornate line of diamond accents and an open gallery setting style.

Wedding Bands to Complement Three Stone Rings

So, what wedding band for three stone engagement rings are best? The classic style of a three stone engagement ring is beautifully accompanied by almost any wedding band. As a three-stone ring is typically chosen for its simplicity and ability to show off jaw-dropping diamonds, a full diamond wedding band is a popular choice. A channel set or shared setting diamond band would provide an incredibly diamond-rich appearance. On the other hand, a plain band with a knife-edge or French curve also looks exceptional, allowing the trilogy to shine.
