How To Choose a Three Stone Engagement Ring

March 11, 2019 Team Tacori


While the classic solitaire engagement ring may rule supreme as the most popular engagement ring style, three stone engagement rings are a close contender. The cluster of three precious gems—symbolically representing the past, present, and future—makes the three stone engagement ring setting uniquely primed for styling possibilities.

What Are Three Stone Engagement Rings?


Also known as a trilogy or trinity ring, three stone engagement rings are made up of three stones that are believed to represent not only the past, present, and future, but also friendship, love, and fidelity. A solid choice if you’re looking for a ring with added depth and meaning, this storied engagement ring setting is effortlessly versatile, and options in design mean there’s a three stone engagement ring to suit every style.

Are Three Stone Engagement Rings Popular?

Iconic and timeless, three stone engagement rings have been a popular choice for centuries. First rising to prominence in the Georgian and Victorian eras, the three stone diamond ring setting experienced a revival in the 20th century. Its most recent surge in popularity can be attributed to the now iconic three stone engagement ring that Prince Harry designed for his then bride-to-be, Meghan. Featuring a cushion cut diamond center stone flanked by two round diamonds that belonged to Princess Diana, this ring has inspired countless versions. The beauty of this engagement ring setting: a chance to marry heirloom stones with hand-chosen diamonds in a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.

What Stones Can Be Set in a Three Stone Engagement Ring?

Depending on your taste and style, your three stone engagement ring might feature three equally sized stones of the same cut for a balanced effect, or two smaller stones offsetting a larger center diamond. You can also try matching cut stones for symmetrical synergy or have two different shaped stones flank the center and create a dynamic contrast. 

At TACORI, we’ve updated the classic three stone look by choosing unexpected side stone options like tapered baguettes, Cadillac cut diamonds, pear-shaped diamonds, or half-moon diamonds. These complementing shapes create memorizing light play, setting the center stone ablaze. 

Not all side stones have to be diamonds. Precious colorful gemstones, a birthstone, or heirloom stones all work. The sky's the limit when it comes to creating beautiful three stone combinations.
