3 Stone Diamond Engagement Ring: Meaning
Diamonds are forever, so is the love you commit to offer through an engagement ring, and then a wedding band. The 3 stone diamond engagement ring means that your love is three-fold, as it encompasses past, present and future, or yesterday, today and forever.

Some 3 stone ring designs include an engraving on the inside of the band, which adds a personal touch to the ring.
Here are the main steps you need to take to make shopping for a 3 stone engagement ring easier.
• Choose your band material: is it going to be yellow gold, white gold or platinum? The color of the band has an impact over the diamond and its brilliance, so be sure to compare options before choosing what your loved one likes best.
• Find her size: the size has a say on the overall cost- if more metal goes into making the band, it will be more expensive – so you should make sure you know your girl’s size in order to get an accurate estimate of the total cost. You can find her ring size by taking one ring out of her jewelry box without her noticing it, and taking it with you to a jeweler. Make sure it’s the right finger!
• Pick the diamonds: do you want same size diamonds or a bigger one in the middle? Check the 4 C’s that describes a diamond’s value: carat, clarity, color, and cut. Typically, engagement rings use 1-carat diamonds, but if you can afford it, you can pick 2-carat diamonds, which will certainly create a big impression on her. A diamond’s beauty also stems from clarity. The clearer a diamond, the more valuable it will be. Flawless diamonds are hard to come by, but jewelers have ways to make the most of stone by correcting or hiding a diamonds flaws or imperfections by using a particular cut or setting rather than another. This way, flaws will be hard to detect by an uneducated eye.
