Three Stone Engagement Rings: Classic Versions

The holiday times always find us nostalgic and looking to the past for classic design inspiration. One of our favorite flattering designs is the three stone ring. This timeless look is wonderfully versatile, and we love creating three stone engagement rings for our customers. The understated three stone ring with round diamonds is an enduring design which will always be in style.

At a client’s request we customized this R2814 by keeping the band smooth instead of adding pave diamonds, and this was the result! In this trellis setting the prongs intertwine under the diamonds, giving it a unique look from the side.

I want!

Gorgeous!

One variation of the three stone ring is to add pave side stones down the band of the ring, like R2814. This adds extra sparkle!

Golden goodness!

Three stone engagement rings are traditional without being stodgy or old-fashioned; it is a lasting, elegant style which is simply beautiful. This is why it will always be a wonderful choice for an engagement ring!

Steal Celebrity Engagement Ring Styles (for Less)

You’ve probably seen plenty of gorgeous celebrity engagement rings and thought to yourself that there is no way you could afford that kind of gem. Unfortunately, you’re probably right. Celebrities have the cash on hand to buy diamonds that are practically perfect and undeniably rare, something that most of us lesser mortals could never hope to attain. And yet, there are ways to copy celebrity styles and make them more affordable. By following a few simple guidelines, you can have the engagement ring that you’ve seen on your favorite celebrity, for a lot less cost.

For starters, you need to consider the size and quality of the stones. A celebrity might be able to spring for a 5-carat diamond that is flawless and colorless, but you likely can’t afford it. Plus, you really don’t want to be flashing that kind of bling unless you live in a gated neighborhood and take a bodyguard with you everywhere. Instead, opt for a more understated stone, one that is smaller and not quite as perfect. You can copy the look of a celebrity by choosing the same cut of diamond (and you’ll pay a lot less).

You’ll also want to mimic the setting. While platinum has become very popular once again, it is also a fairly pricey metal. If you simply can’t afford it, opt for white gold instead. It looks just as nice for a fraction of the price. And as for the style of the band, many celebrities these days are going with simple and traditional bands or the trendy pave halo, both of which are easy to find. Although your idols probably spend beaucoup bucks by ensuring that even their diamond chips are of the highest quality, you can find settings that are already made and are practically indistinguishable from their hand-selected counterparts (and you can feel good about getting them for a great price).

Finally, forget going to name-brand jewelers that will charge you and arm and a leg for the label on the box. By shopping online, you have a wide selection at your fingertips and no annoying sales people pushing you to spend more. Plus, with no store-front overhead, online retailers can offer the looks you love at a discounted price, saving you even more. In short, it’s easy and inexpensive to copy the celebrity engagement ring you’re yearning to wear. By scaling down the size, choosing similar (but more cost-effective) elements, and shopping online, you’re going to save a lot and still wow your friends by wearing the ring they saw on a celebrity.

Celebrity Engagements Heading Into 2011

The holidays were good to celebrities in love, spawning a spate of engagements that were long in the making (LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian) or surprisingly out of the blue (Hugh Hefner and…uh…some blonde who’s 60 years his junior). Although most of us are biting our nails as we wait for photos and video clips of the royal nuptials due to take place this spring (William + Kate = fairy-tale wedding), it can’t hurt to distract ourselves with other happy celebrity couples heading for wedded bliss this year. So let’s see who was visited by cupid over the holidays and what they’re sporting on their third finger!

It’s about time for LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, who have been dating for quite awhile. They sealed the deal with an astonishing 5-carat oval diamond set in a fleur de lis motif (per the singer’s instructions, apparently). In an “aww”-inspiring twist, Eddie worked with jeweler Brent Polacheck to design the rest of the ring. Aww! As for octogenarian and smut-peddler Hugh “Heff” Hefner, he gave his fiancé, Crystal Harris (who, by all reports, is NOT Holly Madison), a 3-carat round-cut brilliant diamond. LeAnn wins…on all counts.

But these two weren’t the only couples to pledge their love over the holidays. Actress Reese Witherspoon said yes to agent Jim Toth, and the 4-carat Ashoka diamond he proposed with. But she wasn’t the only one to date within the industry. Natalie Portman not only announced her engagement to choreographer Benjamin Millepied (whom she met while filming Black Swan), she is also pregnant with their first child. No word yet on the exact size of her stunning ring, but the double pave-halo setting is divine!

A hop across the pond brings us to Brit singer Lily Allen, who recently opened vintage clothing shop Lucy in Disguise. And her success this year apparently didn’t end there. Decorator Sam Cooper proposed on Christmas day with an understated but gorgeous diamond solitaire, which she promptly posted photos of. The couple, who suffered a miscarriage just weeks ago, could use a bit of good news. Of course, no one can compare to actress Vivica A. Fox and her shockingly blingy engagement ring. With eight carats of rock on her finger, one is left to wonder what club promoter Omar White is trying to prove (or compensate for).

Classic or Trendy: Which Engagement Ring Style is Right for You?

When it comes to buying an engagement ring, women have many different criteria. But when contemplating the basic style, there are those who lean towards classic, while others gobble up every passing trend. If you’ve surveyed your girlfriend’s jewelry box but you’re still unsure about what to get her, there are a few things to consider before you buy the ring she’ll wear for the rest of her life.

The most important thing is the stone. Obviously, you’ll want to get a diamond. The setting, including any the band and any accents, are really only there to display the central stone, so that’s what you should focus on first. So you must address the four Cs. Color is a good place to start. While colored diamonds (pink, yellow, blue, even black) have become very popular in recent years, and they can be extremely beautiful, there are a few problems. For one thing, they can be rare and subsequently, carry a heftier price tag. In addition, they will most likely go in and out of fashion, so you can’t expect them to hold their value. Even beyond that, color preference is subject to individual taste, so if you’re considering this as an heirloom piece that will be passed on to your daughter or granddaughter, you may want to ensure that it’s something any woman would wear. Of course you should take your soon-to-be-fiancé’s feelings into account. If she has her heart set on a pink diamond, you’d better get her what she wants. But if you’re unsure, you really can’t go wrong with the traditional, classic, colorless diamond.

If you do decide to go classic, it will probably give your budget a little wiggle room, so use your extra cash to go for a larger stone (higher carat), or better clarity, which will ensure the stone holds its value over time. As for cut, there are several options, but deep, round-cut diamonds offer the most brilliance, which is why they are the staple of the diamond solitaire ring. As for setting, you can go modern or traditional, with a simple band or loads of baguettes, depending on her taste, since it is easy enough to re-set the stone if she changes her mind.
