Three stone engagement rings do, as the name suggests, consists of three gemstones set into a band (of any ring metal). The three stones can be gems of a similar or same size, or two stones of a similar size with the centre gemstone being larger. The effect is very striking and creates a sense of sparkle on the ring finger, no matter what angle the ring is viewed from. The style suits almost any finger shape and length (unlike the solitaire engagement ring which tends to look better on longer, more slender fingers).
Most three stone engagement ring designs consist of one or two different gemstone types, although diamonds tend to be the stones most used for the sidestones. The three-stones of an engagement ring are also considered to represent the past, present and future of a relationship.
