More than just beautiful, three stone engagement rings are rich with symbolism and personal significance. The three stones traditionally represent the past, present and future of a relationship, but can also be interpreted to stand for friendship, love and fidelity or even take on religious significance. If youíre looking for a ring with deep symbolism, three stone engagement rings should be at the top of your list.
Hatton Jewels offer a wide range of Three Stone Engagement Rings, designed to suit any budget. With 100ís of different combinations to choose from or create, you will be sure to find a ring that suits your style. It is generally acceptable and aesthetically pleasing to consider any three-stone combination that contains two different shapes. For example, an oval cut diamond flanked with two rounds, or emerald cuts, with two brilliant cut diamonds either side. The symmetrical cuts give a balanced look with nice proportions and an even sparkle on each stone lend itself to a unified look across the ring.
That said, pear shape side stones, perhaps the second most popular type of side-stone usually lends itself best to accenting main stones that have rounded edges such as round, cushion, ovals or marquise cuts, so, with this style of ring you really are able to experiment and create a design that works for you.
Determining the size of centre stone relative to the carat weight of the side diamonds really is a matter of preference. Those who want to keep the spotlight on the centre diamond may opt for smaller sides while those who are after a bolder look might select larger than average sides to enhance the centre diamond shape.
There are other factors to consider when selecting the size of the side diamonds such as their length to width ratio and cutting style.
Once you have selected a band, you can too also add a further detailing with rows of small diamonds set into the ring to give an extra shine and flair.
With a three stone engagement ring, you are easily able to create a unique and tailored design to match your style and budget.
