Three-Stone Diamond Engagement Ring
A three-stone ring is one of the most elegant and classy engagement rings
, and makes a great gift for many other occasions as well. But like with any other ring, every detail matters, so before you choose a three-stone ring, make sure you know what kind of center stone you want, what kind of side stones, and what kind of band. This simple guide will introduce you to several three-stone ring setting
options, so you can choose what’s best for you.
Three Stone Ring Side Profile
Simple four-prong setting
This gorgeous three-stone ring setting is simple and streamlined, perfect for showing off the natural sparkle of the three Whiteflash A Cut Above branded ideal cut stones it holds. The simple four-prong setting is connected by a thin band around the girdle, which keeps the stone secure and adds visual interest.
In this side view, you can see how this style shows off the side profile of these gorgeous stones as well, and how the openings in the ring shank allow for maximum light performance.
Trois Brilliant Engagement Ring
Perfect oval shape
Fancy shapes, whether in the center stone or side stones, call for settings that will hold it securely but not overwhelm the subtle elegance of the shape itself. This oval shape is a perfect example—turned on its side, the oval provides an interesting variation on the traditional round stones, and the double-prong setting emphasizes its length. The round side stones are set in a martini three-prong setting, which is very popular for settings in rings and earrings.
Baguette Three Stone Diamond Ring
Baguette shape and style
Baguette diamonds are a popular choice for side stones, as their unusual faceting contrasts beautifully with the brilliant faceting of a round center stone. It’s best to highlight the contrast with two different settings. In this eye-catching three-stone ring setting, the center stone is set in a modified bezel setting that is slightly raised from the ring’s overall profile. The baguette accent stones are set using a bar setting, a more unusual setting that coordinates perfectly with the baguette’s shape and style. The complete look of this three-stone ring is one of contemporary class.
Three Stone Trellis Engagement Ring
Some delicate, yet elegant, diamond settings work best in a three-stone ring, where the design is repeated three times and is therefore more noticeable. This trellis setting is a good example of that look. A simple twist of the bands that form the prongs becomes an interesting visual element when repeated throughout the ring. This ring, although as simple as a three-stone ring can be, is a delicate vision of style.
Clour de Clara Ashley Engagement Ring Set
Glamour and romance
For all-out glamour and romance, you can’t beat the triple heart three-stone ring setting. The whimsical heart shapes cut into the matching wedding band match up with the heart shapes on the sides of the head. A three-sided pavé setting on both rings adds unmatchable glamour, and the three round center stones set in four-prong settings add the classic touch.
Of course, this is only one facet of the varieties available to you in a three-stone ring. All the rings pictured here are white gold with diamonds, but look into various metals, stones, and stone shapes before you pick out that perfect three-stone ring that you will cherish forever.
