12 Exquisite Three-Stone Engagement Rings

A look at some of our favorite rings that showcase three stones.

Selecting an engagement ring is a very personal decision, based on both style and sentiment. One popular and versatile setting is the three-stone engagement ring. While some couples might simply like the aesthetic offered by this design, others appreciate how each stone represents the past, present, and future of their relationship.

Unlike other settings that are a little more uniform, there are several different directions one can go with a three-stone ring. A colored diamond or gemstone can be beautifully framed by classic white diamonds, while tapered baguettes can act as stunning accents. Some three-stone designs have the side stones as simply smaller versions of the center stone, while others use the opportunity to bring in different cuts. For brides who want even more bling, having an engagement ring with three stones doesn’t mean it can’t also be set with a pavé band or a halo.
