It’s 2019 and three stone engagement rings are everywhere. The style has gained massive momentum following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s engagement in 2017. Three stone engagement rings, or trinity rings, remain one of our fastest growing engagement ring styles at Buchroeders. Here are the most important things to know about the setting.
Three Stone Engagement Rings Deliver Big Style, with Even Bigger Symbolism
Any engagement ring is a highly symbolic tangible icon of a couple’s love for one another. But a three stone engagement ring elevates this symbolism to the next level.
Traditionally, the diamond on each side represents the past and the present. The center diamond, which is typically the largest diamond, is a symbol for a couple’s brilliant future together.
However, the three stones can also take on additional meanings. To some, the three stones can also represent friendship, love and loyalty- all important components to a healthy relationship.
For the spiritual, the three stones can also embody the Holy Trinity.
For more literal shoppers, the three stones can simply represent three stunning gemstones.
Three Stone Engagement Rings Can Be Less Expensive than Traditional Solitaire Settings
Since a diamond’s price is based on its rarity, larger diamonds are typically more expensive than their smaller, less rare, counterparts. Three stone engagement rings combine three smaller diamonds to create one large look, effectively tripling your potential carat weight. This means that you can get a dazzling 3-carat look, while only paying for three 1-carat diamonds.
Three Stone Engagement Rings Bring the Sparkle
According to the Gemological Institute of America, three stone styles can bring more sparkle than single stone engagement rings. If you compare a single solitaire, versus a three stone of an equal cut grade, it is easy to understand why more diamonds would bring a brighter shine.
Diamond Shape Can Have a Profound Impact on the Ring’s Overall Appearance
Since this setting features three diamonds, there are three times as many opportunities for variation when it comes to diamond shape. Opting for three round center diamonds can deliver a bold and unmistakable look, like Meghan Markle’s engagement ring. In contrast, two fancy shape diamonds with a graduated shape provide a chic and refined style. Some of these graduated shapes include tapered baguettes, pear-shaped diamonds and trapezoids.
Three Stone Engagement Rings Invite You to Add a Pop of Color
Three stone engagement rings offer an ideal option for incorporating a splash of color into your wedding ring look, without departing from the traditional white look altogether.
Price $1,215, does not include center diamond
