A Guide to Three Stone Diamond Rings from Engagements to Anniversaries

A stunning expression of love, three-stone anniversary and engagement rings carry uniquely significant symbolism that makes them especially popular among countless brides-to-be. Here’s what you should know about these increasingly popular engagement rings, along with some tips for choosing one that suits your style. 

What is a Three Stone Ring?

Enhanced by deeply felt symbolism, three stone rings are designed to honor your past, present and beautiful future together. The first glittering diamond gemstone signifies the years that led up to your proposal, while the second represents the exciting and passionate present, when you’re both busy making big plans for the future. These promising plans are symbolized by the third stone, which represents the endless possibilities and the promise of an enduring love that will stand the test of time. 

Benefits of a Three Stone Diamond Ring

Three stone engagement rings feature a pair of scintillating side diamonds that beautifully accentuate the size and brilliance of a center stone. Heftier than traditional solitaires, these dazzling treasures add eye-catching emphasis to a ring bringing more attention to your token of ever-lasting love. 

With many three stone rings, the side stones are set lower than the center diamond to add depth and dynamic dazzle. That said, you can also get three stone rings with equally sized diamonds that sit at the same level. In fact, three stone rings provide plenty of opportunity for customization. You can choose three diamonds or create a stunning color contrast by adding a pair of colored gemstones on either side of a fiery center diamond.

In the eyes of most, however, the best thing about a three-stone setting is that it truly maximizes the brilliance of the diamond gemstones. And this has made the setting a very popular choice for engagement and anniversary rings

Blush rose gold rings deliver a touch of romance for a nice vintage look. The three-diamond anniversary design takes on a scintillating shimmer when set in refined, luminous white gold. 

Caring for Your 3 Stone Diamond Ring

While they do offer a number of compelling benefits, three stone settings require more care, attention and maintenance compared to solitaire settings. The shared prongs create small spaces between the gemstones, which can attract dirt, dust and grime over time. With this in mind, it’s important to maintain a regular cleaning schedule to keep your ring shining and sparkly.

Generally, you can safely clean your three stone rings by gently washing them with warm water and simple dish soap. Still, it’s good to get a professional cleaning every now and then.
