3 stone engagement ring designs are marvelous in terms of the hidden meaning they illustrate. Also known as a trinity or trilogy rings, they are the perfect choice for the couples who incline poetic metaphors or romantic symbolism. These engagement bands are not only distinguished in their outlook but are also appreciated to convey a sole message of commitment, love, and family values. Apart from the usually depicted meanings, they can also be exploited to signify new things depending upon a couple’s thoughts and tastes. Before explaining the metaphoric meaning of each stone, let’s just take a look at the origin of a trinity ring.
In the modern world’s commercial market, we first saw 3 stone engagement ring designs at the beginning of the 2000’s. There had been plenty of 3 stone rings sold up until then. However, they were more religious in nature as they represent the holy trinity. They were also gifted on anniversaries as “past present & future rings”. Someone had the idea to use 3 stone rings as an engagement ring and the symbolism gradually shifted from religious to marital. Today, whenever people talk about a 3 stone ring, they are talking about an engagement ring.
We don’t recall the significance of this piece, but we used tapered sapphire baguettes to represent something in this nature inspired necklace.

This custom engagement ring is unique for using pear shapes on the shoulders. You don’t see many three stone engagement ring designs with pears on them. We also like the elegant trellis setting. This one had a 3/4 carat center stone and 4.5×3.5mm pears, but those numbers cal ways be played with.
The three stones, sometimes, can also signify three people. It may reflect a friendship between the newlywed couple and the person presenting the ring as a gift. It has also been used to represent the bonding of 3 families. The bride’s family, the groom’s family, and the united family formed by their marriage. There really is no limit to the symbolism of a 3 stone engagement ring. You are free to add meaning to suit your personality and style.
At the moment, 3 stone engagement ring designs are more popular than the typical tiffany style solitaire engagement rings. One of the reasons behind their newfound popularity is the availability of various designs and styles. OK, your typical solitaire engagement rings have a wide variety in shapes and styles as well. However, the design possibilities are greater with 3 stone engagement ring designs. Depending upon the sizes, the shapes, the weights, the cuts, and the types of stones, countless looks are possible.
This 3 stone antique inspired ring hearkens back to the days of the early 1900’s, when platinum rings like this were fabricated by hand. Thank God for CAD!

This Bezel Set Engagement Ring is definitely a unique take on the traditional 3 stone settings. The stones are bezel set by two strips of metal going around the top of one stone and then to bottom of the next, linking all 3 stones. This is definitely a modern look with its sleek lines.
Round Diamonds were typically used in 3 stone engagement ring settings, with the center stone being larger than the others. However, couples are increasingly breaking the rules with their 3 stone engagement ring designs. You are seeing diamond mixed with colored gemstones, as well as all gemstone rings.

3 stone engagement settings have three styles that account for the majority of rings made.
Equal sized – In this style, all the three stones are the same size. A little plain for us!
Traditionally graduated – This typically has a larger center stone, with the weight of the center stone typically being double that of the sided stones. For example, a 5mm center stone weighs a half carat, so the side stones would be 1/4 carat, or 4mm in diameter.
Slightly graduated – This style renders the center stone slightly bigger or far larger. This variation in size has no mathematical basis as with traditional graduated rings. It is more of a custom style as you can choose any size stones you want without any rhyme or reason.
The styles of 3 stone engagement ring designs are not limited only to the size of stones. Some people may like only one type of stone to be fitted in all three spots. However, others may like to explore the mixing of of stone types. For example, an emerald with side diamonds in the traditional graduation is always stunning. Mixing colored gemstones with diamonds makes for an attractive 3 stone engagement ring. Sapphire, aquamarine, and tourmaline all make excellent choices if you want a blue tone. For red, there is ruby, tourmaline, or garnet. You can find a stone for almost any color!
Typically, 3 stone engagement ring settings come with round stones. We like to mix it up though. Just as a solitaire engagement rings can be set with round, princess, oval, cushion, etc. 3 stone engagement ring designs can also be set with multiple shapes. You can opt for the same three stones cut or even can explore mixed cut 3 stone engagement rings. Here is one with pears and a round.

At Valeria Custom Jewelry, we think that getting something custom made should should be available to everyone. While all of our jewelry is custom designed and crafted to exceptionally high standards, we’re able to keep our costs much lower than traditional jewelers who do custom work – not by cutting corners or settling for lower quality, but by finding better ways to do things.
Keeping our costs low means we’re able to produce quality custom jewelry for prices that are comparable to what you’d pay for similar quality pieces off the shelf. If you’re purchasing a piece of jewelry that you want to last a lifetime (like an engagement ring or wedding band, for instance), then we offer the opportunity to have something made just for you for roughly the cost of something that’s been mass-produced. And many times, our prices can cost less for labor and material intensive pieces.
However, custom designing and making every piece to order and at such high quality means we can’t offer jewelry at the prices of of the lower end fashion brands of the jewelry coming from Asia.
