Tips For Choosing A 3-Stone Engagement Ring

If you are planning to pop the question and have discovered that your partner loves trilogy rings, this article is for you.

The trinity, or trilogy ring, could incorporate 3 diamonds of the same size, or it could be a larger central diamond with two smaller stones on either side. Rather than browsing jewellery stores, simply find a custom jeweller who makes 3 stone engagement rings to the client’s specifications.

Custom Jewellery

If you thought that handcrafted jewellery was only for the rich and famous, think again. Indeed, it is no more expensive to have a diamond ring made, and for such a special occasion, it calls for a unique ring that is like no other. All it takes is a Google search to find a custom jeweller that handcrafts 3 stone engagement rings Australia stores showcase, and they are out there. This allows you to select the stones and how they are cut, while the custom jeweller has a wealth of design experience, ensuring the ring is perfect in every way.

Choosing The Base Metal

The band could be made from rose gold, white gold or platinum, whichever you prefer. You should be practical and choose a metal that will not tarnish, such as platinum or palladium. Of course, the jeweller must have the correct ring size, as some designs are difficult to resize and if you are planning a surprise proposal, you will have to discover your partner’s ring size.

Choosing the Stones

There are two main designs with a trilogy or trinity style ring:

All 3 diamonds are the same size.
The central stone is slightly larger than the other two.

You might prefer all three diamonds to be clear, or perhaps combining pink with clear, or even having a pair of sapphires either side of a clear diamond, which is a stunning design. There are no hard and fast rules regarding the supporting stones in a trilogy ring, so you could choose whatever precious stone your partner prefers.

Choosing A Design

The great thing about custom jewellery is you get to design the piece and the custom jeweller can take your concept and work out a design that is perfect, using the stones of your choosing, with your preferred cut and setting. If she is traditional, you might want to stick with 3 clear diamonds, but there’s no reason they have to be the same size. Let the jeweller show you some images to give you an idea of what can be achieved, and as your partner will be wearing the ring constantly, be practical with the design and avoid prong settings.

This is such an important event in both your lives that you really should have the engagement ring custom made by an experienced custom jeweller, and with her tastes known, the design is bound to please. You can get the ball rolling by noticing her jewellery and fashion tastes and if you can find a way to bring up the topic without arousing suspicion, so much the better.
