3 Stone Diamond Engagement Ring

This year 3 stone diamond rings have been wildly popular!  What does a three stone diamond ring represent engagement or anniversary?  Well, its actually both which is probably why its done so well.  Three round or princess cut diamonds represent your past present and future.  The three diamonds closely set give an overall large appearance.  At Pompeii3 we really like 3 round stones with about 3-4 round accent diamonds on the side like our 1.00ct diamond ring on sale for $549.

If you want to be a little different or colorful perhaps you would be interested in a blue diamond 3 stone ring.  You can go classic or unique and add halo accents.  Halo diamonds are little diamonds that encircle the main diamond, this has become popular because it makes the main stone look even larger without spending a lot more to get a bigger single stone.

Does the wedding ring go on before the engagement ring?

When customers are shopping for wedding bands the most commonly asked question is does the wedding ring go on in front or behind the engagement ring.  Good question!  There is no right or wrong to this, but traditionally the wedding band goes on the inside, the saying is “the wedding band goes closest to your heart”.  The next question you may ask is how does this all work for the ceremony if you have the engagement ring already on.  Well, for the ceremony simply slide it on in front and change after.

Three Stone Ring vs Halo Diamond Ring

Should you get a 3 stone diamond ring, or halo diamond ring for your engagement ring?  Both are very nice, and you’ll likely love either but Im happy to give you another point of view.
