Three-Stone Engagement Rings

Although your engagement ring should be a true reflection of your personal style, there are definitely some overarching ring trends that tend to guide brides in a certain direction.

Whether you are a classic or non-traditional bride or just want an epic amount of sparkle, the year 2020 definitely has some fabulous options for you.

For brides who thrive on numbers, the basic statistics are that; round-cut is still the most popular shape, platinum is the most popular metal and solitaire is the favourite style of setting.

However, if you want to steer away from the most popular (which can also mean on more fourth fingers out there) the first trend you need to know about is the three-stone engagement ring.

Ever since Meghan Markle’s engagement to Prince Harry and more recently Princess Beatrice’s engagement to Italian property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, the classic trilogy style engagement ring has been gaining a lot of attention. We call it the ‘royal effect’! 

The timeless look of a three-stone engagement ring is not only super sparkly but has a rich symbolic nature too—the three stones are said to represent a couple’s past, present and future as well as friendship, love and fidelity. 



With this in mind, there has however been a slight update to the ‘classic’ trilogy setting (that being Markle’s cushion cut centre diamond, hugged by two round brilliant cut diamonds and Beatrice’s round brilliant cut centre diamond flanked by two baguettes).

By mixing up the combination of stone shapes, cuts and colours, brides are putting their individual customised twist on this stunning style. 

An oval centre stone flanked by two pear diamonds, a large emerald cut centre stone in between two smaller emerald cut side stones, a radiant cut diamond cushioned between two trilliant cut diamonds, the options are endless and below are a few of our favourites.
