Sometimes known as “the forever ring”, the three stone ring features a defined center diamond which is the largest and most prominent of the trio, as the focal point.
In one diamond you will see the past, with all its memories. The second diamond will signify the future and the promise of what’s to come. And resting between them is the present, symbolizing the two of you together with all of the love you have at this special moment in time.

What are the Best Diamond Shapes for Three Stone Ring Settings?

In choosing the best diamond shapes for three-stone rings, it's critical to appreciate the harmony and balance that these iconic settings strive for.
In traditional three-stone rings, all three diamonds in the mounting typically share the same cut and shape, creating a cohesive and visually striking arrangement. However, within this framework, there exists a rich array of popular variations, each with its own unique charm and appeal.
Round-cut diamonds, with their classic and timeless appeal, are a popular choice for three-stone ring settings. Their symmetrical shape not only complements the overall balance of the design but also maximizes light reflection, resulting in a dazzling display of brilliance.
With their square shape and pointed corners, princess-cut diamonds exude a contemporary elegance that pairs seamlessly with the symbolic significance of the past, present, and future.
For those drawn to vintage aesthetics, emerald-cut diamonds offer a unique and sophisticated choice for three-stone ring settings. Characterized by their rectangular shape and step-cut facets, they evoke a sense of old-world glamor and refinement.
While traditionally, all three diamonds share the same cut and shape, modern trends allow for a touch of personalization and uniqueness. You can mix and match different diamond shapes to create a custom design that reflects your individual style and displays the different facets of your relationship, as boundless as your love story.

How Secure are Three Stone Ring Settings?

Security is paramount when it comes to preserving the integrity of a cherished engagement ring. Properly crafted settings, whether prongs, bezels, or other techniques, ensure a stone's safety. It is important that the prongs or bezels of the ring hold each of the three stones firmly in place during wear, preventing them from becoming loose or dislodged. Making sure your ring is well-made is the most important aspect of protecting your treasure.
Beyond craftsmanship, any center stone's security is in large part determined by how well you care for it. As long as you take good care of your ring, it should be fine, regardless of the type of setting you use. You should have your ring regularly inspected by a professional jeweler to ensure the security of all stones in your ring (especially the center stone).
