Engagement Ring Styles


The three-stone engagement ring radiates brilliance from all sides. The design features two smaller stones flanking a large one at the center — representing your past, present, and future. Another interpretation is that the three stones represent the pillars of a relationship: friendship, love, and fidelity. This ring can also represent the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Regardless of which of these meanings speaks to you, one thing is certain: this ring is the perfect symbol of a meaningful relationship.

If your partner can’t decide between a diamond or colored stone engagement ring, this is a great ring style to get the best of both worlds with a swoon-worthy effect! Popular choices for gemstones to include in a three-stone ring include the sapphire, which typically stands for loyalty, and the ruby, which represents passion. 

Another bonus is that you can pick out diamonds (or gems) of different shapes, such as a round diamond flanked by emerald-cut diamonds or a pear-shaped diamond flanked by round diamonds — the sky’s the limit!

The Four Cs

When you opt for a diamond ring, you need to decide on the best balance between the properties of a diamond — carat, clarity, color, and cut — also known as the 4 Cs.

Carat represents the weight of your diamond, while Clarity indicates the level of imperfections in it. These imperfections are called inclusions, and they occur naturally. The fewer inclusions, the more flawless your diamond is.

Color indicates the purity of a diamond. The grading ranges from a scale of complete transparency to yellow undertones. 

The diamond Cut is done so that a diamond displays the maximum brilliance and light reflection.
Remember, even if a diamond has a great degree of color and clarity, it will lack brilliance if the cut is not performed well. Here are the most popular cut shapes:
