The three-stone engagement ring was invented in the early 2000s, which makes it a relatively recent design. Yet, this once-trendy engagement ring design has cemented itself and grown into one of today’s most popular choices.
Unlike a solitaire engagement ring, a three-stone ring has 3 diamonds as its focal point. These diamonds can be of equal size, or you could also have one large center stone with two smaller ones on each side. You can even opt to use colored diamonds or any other combination you can think of.
The versatility of a three-stone engagement ring has led to it becoming a popular choice amongst everyone. You can use any combination of diamonds, cuts, and carat sizes to create a unique three-stone engagement ring that speaks to a couple’s relationship. Three-stone rings are a perfect choice for those seeking a more contemporary look.
At Clean Origin, you can truly make it your own by customizing every aspect of the ring.
What Does a Three-Stone Engagement Ring Mean?
Engagement rings symbolize the loving bond between people. The ring's circular shape represents eternity - the absence of a beginning or an end - just like their devotion to one another. This meaning has carried on for ages and isn't likely to change anytime soon.
Yet, just like relationships, not all engagement rings are the same. Over time, newer ring designs have been created, each with its respective meaning.
A three-stone engagement ring is one of the most meaningful rings you can give your loved one. Each of the gemstones stands for friendship, love, and fidelity. The gems are also said to represent the past, present, and future of your love, making them an especially meaningful choice.
Choosing a Precious Metal for Your Ring
When buying an engagement ring, one of the main decisions you'll have to make is what type of precious metal you want to use in your ring band. While it is possible to have a two-tone ring, most engagement rings opt for just one of the following metals:
Rose gold is a particular type of gold with a pink hue. It stands for refinement and passion, making rose gold a fitting choice for three-stone engagement rings and fine jewelry.
White gold is a long-time favorite when it comes to engagement rings in general. This is widely considered the perennial metal color for any engagement ring, including three-stone engagement rings. Make any engagement ring timeless by using white gold.
Yellow gold is another timeless and classic choice for engagement rings, particularly for modern and vintage style rings. A yellow gold ring band will give your engagement ring a radiant look that will turn heads everywhere it goes!
Platinum is one of the most valuable metals on Earth. It is a highly resistant and durable metal that is perfectly suited for jewelry. At first glance, a white gold and platinum ring may look similar, but upon closer inspection, a white gold ring has a silver shine to it compared to platinum's more gray tone. A platinum band perfect for those seeking a luxurious style for their three-stone engagement ring that represents their enduring love.
Craftsmen make our bands in a metal shop to ensure the highest quality possible.
What Wedding Band Looks Best With a Three-Stone Engagement Ring?
One more thing you'll want to keep in mind when choosing a three-stone engagement ring is the bridal set. Eventually, your loved one will wear their wedding ring with their three-stone engagement ring, so you want to make sure to pair it well with a complementing wedding band.
Does your loved one prefer minimalist designs with bold elements? Then traditional is the name of the game. In this case, stick with a plain band and let the diamond three-stone engagement ring take the spotlight.
Or do they gravitate more toward eccentric designs? If that's the case, then a pavé band will provide the sparkle that they seek.
Great Diamond Shapes for a Three-Stone Ring
Three-stone engagement rings are popular for being highly customizable, allowing you to craft a diamond engagement ring unlike any other.
However, with so many elements available for you to choose from, it is totally understandable to feel overwhelmed. To help you with this process, it's best to start by narrowing your choices down. For instance, when choosing diamond shapes, it is best to keep them similar to one another.
If you would like an oval or round cut center stone, circular supporting stones like pear cut diamonds will keep your three-stone ring classic in design while giving it an edge of sophistication. If you’ve decided on a square-shaped diamond for your main gemstone, then an emerald, princess, or cushion cut beside it will complement its geometric appearance.
Pair Your Three-Stone Ring With a Lab Created Diamond
One of the many reasons why our lab grown diamonds here at Clean Origin are so popular is that they are about 20-40% less expensive than mined diamonds. These diamonds have the same quality and clarity as a mined diamond - at a fraction of the price and without the negative environmental impacts of traditional diamonds.
Lab grown diamonds can come in a variety of colors such as blue, yellow, pink, green, and brown. Having three stones in your engagement ring gives you the flexibility to mix and match different colored diamonds and create a ring that will suit your style!
The three-stone engagement ring offers an excellent opportunity for getting creative with your ring. By combing different shapes, colors, and sizes, you can build a ring that reflects the individuality of that special someone in your life.
