The three stone diamond rings is is another of the classic setting styles that has been transorrmed and redeveloped over the years to create new and modern designs. The three stone design is a great way to give your ring a greater size appearance and lends itself to having so many diamond shape and size combinations to enhance and alter the appearance. There are two main concepts for the stone combination, either where all three diamonds are the same shape such as round, princess or emerald cut or where there is a main diamond of any shape with another fancy style pair of diamonds on either side that generally complement and link in with the measurement proportions of the main diamond.
1ct diamond trology ring design proportions
If a trilogy diamond ring has a 1ct centre diamond how it appears will be determined by the proportions you create with the three diamonds no matter what the combination of the shapes. The three standard proportions are where:
The diamonds are all very close to the same size giving equaly balance between all of the stones
The side diamonds are half the weight of the centre diamond which makes them appear abour three quarters the size of the main diamond giving more focus to the main diamond but is still a solid blend of all three diamonds.
The final combination is where the side diamonds are closer to a quarter of the weight of the main diamond. This gives the greatests attention to a larger centre diamond and make the side diamonds more like complementary diamonds which are added more as a feature and are more often shapes like baguettes, trilliants, pears, kites and cadi step cuts.
