These are three stone rings known as the Trilogy or Trinity ring with the three stones set separately into one ring. The three stones can take on a different significance for each individual wearer.
Some of the meanings include, Father, Mother and child. This represents the special bond that exists between the three. They can also be symbolic of the ‘Past, Present and Future’. This is especially suitable in the context of an engagement ring as it has a deeply romantic symbolic meaning.
A trilogy ring can be presented as a representation of someone’s religious beliefs and reference the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
The concept of a ring with strong symbolism is an enduring tradition that will remain strong for many generations.
Diamonds have been widely featured in engagement rings since the middle of the 20th century. Solitaire rings have one single diamond. The most common setting for engagement rings is the solitaire claw setting. They have come to mark some of the most significant occasions in one's life, most notably, an engagement proposal.
The modern favourite cut for an engagement ring is the brilliant cut, which provides the maximum amount of sparkle to the gemstone, whilst Art Deco and Vintage rings generally have old cut diamonds with a similar number of facets to the brilliant cut.
The traditional engagement rings may have different claw settings and bands. Another category is engagement rings with side stones. Rings with a larger diamond set in the middle and smaller diamonds on the side fit under this category.
