If you are ring shopping there is a lot to think about: cut, clarity, color, and style will all come up. Two popular styles are halo and three-stone diamond engagement rings. Both gorgeous but what’s the difference?

Three-Stone Diamond Engagement Rings

Also known as the trilogy ring, three-stone rings feature a larger center stone diamond and two smaller diamonds or gemstones on either side. This stunning design represents the past, present, and future of you and your partner’s lives and relationship.

When you select a three-stone engagement ring you are choosing an instant classic. The two smaller diamonds will enhance the appearance of the center stone making it stand out as a beautiful centerpiece. For a more unique appearance, three-stone rings can be customized with gemstones adding more color and personality to the ring. It is important to note that three-stone rings tend to be more expensive because of the size of the stones in the ring. 

Halo Diamond Engagement Rings

Halo’s have become very popular in recent years. You can tell a halo ring apart from a solitaire by the ring of small diamonds that encompass the center stone. Symbolizing loyalty, togetherness, and commitment halo engagement rings make for a meaningful engagement ring choice. 

A halo ring accents the center stone with a ring, or as many as three rings of pavé or micro-pavé diamonds. Opting for a halo will make the center stone of the ring appear bigger and brighter than a solitaire engagement ring. Adding a halo to your engagement ring choice is a great way to get a similar quality and carat weight to a three-stone ring at a lower cost.
