Arguably, few other pieces of jewelry are as dear to a woman as an engagement ring. There is always a special meaning, a memory, a special feeling associated with the engagement ring. If you are buying a ring, you will surely want to go for something exotic and distinct. In that case, you can look for the beautiful engagement ring with 3 stones. It is the most popular and classic ring design available today.
An Overview of Three Stone Rings
As the name suggests, these are engagement rings having three similar or different gemstones. You can take a look at Eva Longoria's, Nicole Kidman's, or Jenna Bush's engagement rings to know how exactly these rings look like.
These rings are commonly made using diamonds, i.e., a single diamond in the center, with two smaller diamonds on the sides. The center diamond can be a princess cut, emerald cut, asscher cut, round, etc. It should be noted that emerald cut engagement rings are not rings made using emeralds, but rings having a square cut stone. The band used for this ring can be plain metal or encrusted with tiny diamonds. These rings can be made in platinum as well as yellow gold.
Although originally these rings were made only using diamonds, nowadays, other gemstones are also used. Engagement rings made using colored stones is a new trend. Usually, while making these rings, three stones of the same color are rarely used. A red, blue, or green stone is always used in combination with white diamonds. When it comes to sapphire, apart from the usual blue, look for a unique pink or yellow sapphire for your ring. An emerald, ruby, or sapphire is generally set in the center (with any cut of your choice) and the diamonds are places on either sides. However, you can also reverse the design (like Jenna Bush's engagement ring). If you wish to have oval engagement rings, then it is recommended to go for sapphire or emerald center stone. These gemstones appear more well-defined in the oval shape than diamonds.
Vintage Engagement Rings
Secondly, you can consider a vintage or antique ring. These rings are made in white diamonds with intricate and art deco designs. Antique and vintage rings made in yellow gold appear more attractive than those made in white gold.
The price of these rings depend on the type, size, cut of the stone, and the metal used. Those made with larger stones, well-defined cuts, and set in platinum are expensive. Whereas, if the stones are set in yellow gold and with smaller diamonds, the price will reduce considerably. Lastly, remember when choosing the gemstones, you must look for cut, clarity, and carat, and buy only from certified jewelers.
If you have decided to buy these rings, you should deal with the best jewelers or search the Internet to find the best deals. So, wait no more. If it appeals to you, go ahead and have the ring made according to your taste and present it to your beloved. Good luck!
