Three Stone Engagement Rings
Three-stone diamond rings have a special symbolism that is particularly appropriate for an engagement ring. Three stones that represent the past, present, and future are reflective of a couple's journey together and share that story with the world. What better way to visualize your love story together than through a sparkling diamond engagement ring full of powerful symbolic meaning? Choose three diamonds or select colorful accent stones on either side of center to add a further element of personalization. Three-stone engagement rings are available in a variety of styles and shapes and will be a perfect tribute to any love story.
”Till Death Do Us Part”
Your diamond engagement ring is the first symbolic gesture of the vows you will soon make when you promise to stay with your loved one forever, and like your promise, the diamond you propose with will last with your love. Diamonds are the ideal choice for a forever promise; they are the hardest, strongest, and most permanent material known to man. While this makes them a practical gemstone for any piece of jewelry, it makes them notably worthwhile to invest in for an engagement ring. Inevitably prone to bumps and scratches due to their location, a diamond won't show wear and tear like other colored gemstones.
Choosing a Metal
Rose gold, yellow gold, platinum, white gold--on top of choosing a style of diamond cut, deciding on a metal for your engagement ring will heavily influence the aesthetic of the ring and depends both on the style and complexion of your beloved. Gold is available in different shades that varies based on the purity of the gold (ranging most often from 10k to 18k in fine jewelry) and the alloy metal it is mixed with. While having a higher percentage of gold may sound preferable, the gold will be softer and more liable to scratches. Platinum affords a more durable but less pliable alternative to white gold and may not be a suitable upgrade depending on the engagement ring band style you choose.
Renew Your Vows with a Diamond
You may have opted for a smaller, low-quality diamond when you first proposed to your spouse, and after a few years you find that the time is right to replace the old ring with the one you really wanted to get for them. A new engagement ring is a symbol of re-commitment to your spouse and a lovely later addition to a marriage. A bigger, more quality diamond in a nicer setting will never replace the sentiment of the original, but it will sparkle and shine just as much as your love from Day 1. Whether you're officially renewing your vows twenty years later or getting a five-year anniversary present, upgrading an engagement ring is a great way to show your love and dedication to your partner.
