Meghan Markle-Inspired Three-Stone Engagement Rings
Three-stone engagement rings were once considered retro, but not anymore. The regal settings have become popular again thanks to one very special bride-to-be: Meghan Markle. When Prince Harry designed a three-stone ring for his fiancé (using a stunning cushion-cut center and two round-cut stones from Princess Diana's own collection!), he inadvertently brought a classic ring setting back into fashion. So if you love a ring set with triple the stones, know that your bridal jewelry preferences have never been more in demand.
If you thought you'd be able to get Meghan's exact engagement ring, though, think again. The royal jeweler has already said they will not be creating replicas of her sparkly diamond band. But that doesn't mean you can't interpret the look in your own way. Choose a trio of diamonds to most closely replicate Meghan's bling, or mix in a few precious gemstones for something a bit different. Want even more of a twist? Try a round-cut diamond flanked with either baguettes or pears at its side.
Modern women with an eccentric spirit, on the other hand, may prefer the look of bezel-set stones or an asymmetrical cluster setting. Vintage lovers will likely prefer a three-stone engagement ring with step-cut centers—like emerald or asscher-cut diamonds—and baguette or trapezoidal sides. And for an even more antique look, you can opt for a halo-set three-stone number, or a pavé band to give your ring even more of a reason to shine bright. No matter which you choose, know that your three-stone is a timeless, regal, and ultra-elegant choice.
