Beautiful Ideas for Three Stone Engagement Rings

One of the most elegant, timeless styles is three stone engagement rings, which are not only lovely to look at but also have a beautiful sentiment behind the style. Often featuring one larger stone in the middle, which is flanked by two smaller stones on either side, this ring is said to symbolise the past, present and future of your relationship.

The three stone ring ranges from traditional styles that incorporate round cut diamonds in a simple band, to modern styles that could be minimal (fine band, small stones), vintage (pave band, halo stones) or even bold (coloured stones, dramatic settings). However you choose to incorporate the three stones style into your ring, this style is versatile enough to suit just about anyone.

To show you how lovely this style can be, we have put together some of our favourite examples of triple stone engagement rings.

We Love These Triple Stone Engagement Rings

From simple to elaborate, minimal to bold, we love the versatile beauty of three stone diamond engagement rings. Here are some ideas to help inspire you to use this design in your own ring…

#1 Classic and Elegant

Three Stone Engagement Ring 1

The classic, traditional version of this ring keeps the focus on the stones themselves. Diamonds are carefully set, with the middle stone either a bit larger or set a bit higher than the smaller stones on either side. The band is typically kept plain, which gives the ring a minimal, chic look that is both understated and feminine. If you are more of a traditionalist who values simplicity above glitz, this style is sure to be the perfect choice. While it looks good in platinum, it also works well in rose gold, white gold and yellow gold.

#2 Mixed Stones and Detail

Another elegant style that takes an old fashioned classic and gives it a fresh twist is the mixed stones style. By combining precious stones such as sapphires with diamonds, you will draw attention to the three stones while adding lots of impact. A delicate pave setting that twined around the focus stones adds lots of sparkle without overpowering the sapphires, while a slightly twisted band adds detail. You could choose your birthstone or something that catches your eye – sapphire, ruby, emerald tanzanite, opal or even a coloured diamond could all work well!

#3 Simple Setting, Two Tone Metals

Two tone rings are another trend that continues to be seen on rings. In this example, a soft gold has been used for the band, with platinum used for the setting. What makes this style work so well is that the setting has been kept simple, with focus on the stones. Adding too much detail to a two tone ring can overpower the balance. But a simple design looks especially gorgeous with mixed metals. You could also try something similar in rose gold, using yellow gold as contrast or platinum.

Vintage Halo and Pave

Halo styles have a round stone that is surrounded by tiny stones. For the triple stone style, the result is a bold, vintage style ring that is glamorous and eye catching. You can take this look even further with a pave encrusted band, or you could keep it a bit more understated with a plain band. Whatever your choice of metals, and whether you opt for all diamonds for the halo or you decide to mix your stones, this style is a classic.

Dramatic Contrasts

You could also highlight the centre stone with contrasting stones. Black diamonds offer a contemporary, stylish look that works well with cool toned metals as well as warmer tones. Paired with a platinum band (pave or plain), this example is simple and yet mesmerising in its contrasts. You could try something similar with coloured stones and a gold band for an equally unique look, or experiment with settings to arrange the contrasting stones dramatically.

Flowing Lines

You don’t even have to be limited to following traditional lines with your ring. Flowing lines add detail subtly, which is enhanced by the addition of pave stones set into the band. The three stones are then balanced by the lines of the ring, without overpowering or fading into the background. This design looks especially lovely in rose gold, but would work just as well in platinum or yellow gold. You could add coloured stones for the pave or choose precious stones for the centre to add even more detail.

Dainty and Minimal

If you prefer your jewellery small and subtle, you could even opt for a minimal engagement ring that has teeny tiny stones set into a fine band. Choose a classic platinum or gold band with diamonds, replace the centre or flanking stones with a precious stone such as ruby, sapphire or tanzanite, or try a modern rose gold band with a romantic stone such as morganite for something different.

We hope that you are inspired by these examples of beautiful three stone rings. And remember, for any queries or requests on custom engagement rings, we are always happy to help make your dream ring turn into a reality.

We Love These Stunning Round Cut Diamond Engagement Rings

Round cut diamond engagement rings come in all types of styles, but the one thing they all have in common is, you guessed it, a round diamond. This shape is one of the most classic cuts for diamonds after oval and rectangular, with a timeless yet trendy shape that works well in a wide variety of ring designs.

We have put together some of our favourite round cut rings to give you some inspiration on how this ring can be designed.

Be Inspired by These Beautiful Round Cut Engagement Rings

With no further ado, here are some of our top picks for round cut engagement rings…

Pave split band

Round Cut Engagement Rings 1

This modern ring has a twisted pave band that is encrusted with tiny round diamonds on the outside, and roped metal on the outside. The solitaire style works very well with this ring, bringing out the large, round centre stone to perfection. For added detail, you could consider using two tone metals for the band, in rose gold and platinum or rose and white gold. The split band has the added advantage of creating an infinity sign of sorts, which further enhances the romance of this striking ring.

Halo and pave

Round Cut Engagement Rings 2

The halo style is a popular choice for round cut diamonds, featuring a large stone that is surrounded by tiny stones in a circular style. A pave band continues the look of the edging, with delicate, diamond encrusted details that make for a romantic, feminine ring. This style is classic enough to never date, but stylish enough to have a modern touch of glamour. If your budget does not stretch to a large number of smaller stones, consider choosing a slightly lower carat for the small stones and a higher carat for the main stone. You could also consider other stones for the halo and band, such as your birth stone.

Trio of stones

Round Cut Engagement Rings 3

In soft rose gold, this halo style ring features a trio of stones that are encrusted with smaller stones. There is a lot of symbolism in this style. Many believe the three stones to represent the past, future and present, with the present stone being the centre. Often, this stone is slightly larger. If you love deeper meanings, and are looking for something elegant and classic, this is a good choice. It looks equally lovely in other gold tones, as well as platinum.

Twisted band

Round Cut Engagement Rings 4

Similar to the split band ring, the twisted band features a uniquely winding band comprised of a pave encrusted part and a solid metal part. This adds plenty of detail without making the ring overly bold. It works in solid metals such as platinum, as well as two tone metals, such as rose gold and white gold. We love how the twists subtly draw attention to the round centre stone without fading into the background or overpowering the centre stone.

Chunky and minimal

Round Cut Engagement Rings 5

If minimal engagement rings are more your thing, this chunky, simple ring is sure to be a great choice. The thick metal band is made of gleaming platinum in this ring, but you could also consider rose gold or yellow gold. The round diamond sites in the middle, without frills and elaborate details. The ring has plenty of impact in a paired down, sleek way, making it modern enough for today’s bride but still simple enough to stand the test of time.
