Battle of the Classic Engagement Rings: Solitaire vs. 3-Stone

Battle of the Classic Engagement Rings: Solitaire vs. 3-Stone


 18k White Gold Three Stone Engagement Ring

Classic-style engagement rings are beautiful and timeless. These traditional, ever-popular designs have proved they can stand the test of time. But, if you haven’t shopped for an engagement ring before, you might not know that there are actually multiple classic engagement ring styles. There are two main types of classic engagement rings: 3-stone rings and solitaire rings. But what are the differences between these two types of rings, and why should you choose one style over the other? Let’s take a look at the pros of each, as well as the meaning behind their designs.

3-Stone Engagement Rings

A three stone engagement ring is just what it sounds like. Instead of having one centerpiece diamond, the three stone ring has three. Traditionally, the center stone is the largest diamond, and each of the flanking stones is half the size of the center stone. But, today, you can find variations on three stone engagement ring diamond sizes, including ones where all three stones are the same size.

For many, the major appeal of three stone engagement rings is the meaning behind their design. Each of the three stones represents a time in your relationship: your past, present, and future as a couple. This representation of the timeline of your life together sits beautifully on the circular band of the ring that represents eternity. This meaning behind this design is highly romantic and sentimental.

Another benefit of a three stone ring is that there are more customization options for each stone. For example, you can choose from many different sizes and shapes for your design. Another customization option that many people take advantage of is using various gemstones instead of diamonds for the side stones. This can be either for aesthetic reasons, preferring the look of certain gemstones, or for budget reasons, as many gemstones cost less than diamonds.

Solitaire Rings

Solitaire rings are what come to mind for most people when they think of an engagement ring. A solitaire engagement ring is a ring that features only one center stone, usually a diamond. Solitaire rings are the most popular engagement ring style and have been for many decades. This gives them the advantage of always looking classic. They are both practical, elegant and look appropriate with both the most casual and the most dressy of outfits.

Another advantage of solitaire rings is that they usually fit with standard wedding bands. With more complicated ring designs, you might have to get specific or custom wedding band that will be specially designed to sit flush with your ring. But most solitaire bands have a more standard design that will match more wedding bands, allowing you to customize your wedding set more easily.

Solitaire rings also do an excellent job of highlighting your diamond. With no other distractions on the ring, all the focus is on your center stone, letting it take the spotlight.

Nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, the Homeland star appeared on the carpet in an over-the-top gold Schiaparelli dress. Her look was up for debate, as some critics thought the gold was overdone, especially her spray tan. Things were toned down, however, as the metallic gown was paired with simple yet chic studs.

The Knot’s Dream Wedding, Natalie K for Forevermark®

For those of you who were enthralled in all the drama and magic that was The Knot’s Dream Wedding, you’ve already seen the incredible outcome. For those of you who may have not, you’re in for a treat. One deserving couple was chosen to be gifted a Dream Wedding, everything from the gown to the venue would be paid for and styled to perfection. The one catch?! Every detail would be selected by The Knot’s vast, and quite stylish, fan base.

Meet Rebekah Gregory and Pete DiMartino, a stunning couple who were unfortunately touched by the traumatic events which occurred at the 2013 Boston Marathon. They’re lives and health were affected, but their love grew ever stronger. We followed their story closely and fell in love with them as well. Over the course of a few months, the venue was picked (The Biltmore estate, in Asheville, NC), the wedding dress was chosen (a stunning fit and flare Sophia Moncelli) and the details came together with the help of celebrity planner Marcy Blum.

Christina Aguilera’s Vintage Inspired Engagement Ring

Christina Aguilera’s Vintage Inspired Engagement Ring

We’ve been ecstatic since we first caught a glimpse of Christina Aguilera’s engagement ring on Valentine’s Day earlier this year, so gorgeous and so unique. We love the risk that her husband to be, Matt Rutler, took in choosing a ring for an equally unequaled songstress and vocalist. But since then we’ve hardly had an opportunity to get a closer look, until now. Glamour Magazine shared a great close up of the extraordinary, vintage inspired, engagement ring stunner. Take a look and see what we’ve got!
