I don’t have a two stone ring, but as soon as I saw your post, I started thinking what that might look like. We’re so accustomed to odd number of stones on rings. If you were looking to get it made custom, maybe you could have the stones set in an “infinity” pattern (basically a figure 8 sideways). It would hold meaning for what marriage represents, and could incorporate your family stones. They would probably have to be the same size, however. 

Anyway, just a thought. Happy hunting!

someone posted this on another thread.  i like the unique concept of two stone ring but in this, the execution is off and it kinda looks like a pair of binoculars

I had my Mum’s original wedding band set with diamonds after I saw this set. I don’t have a picture of the ring but it’s like the one at the top of this picture (without the gold balls!) but the other one, with two stones, is also extremely pretty.

Going totally custom could be expensive but my experience was a bit different. I took a quick picture of the work I had done on mu Mum’s ring – it cost about £250 sterling for the labour and diamonds, which I thought was really reasonable. I think that’s about $130?? Perhaps when you find an idea you like you could buy a plain band quite cheaply and just have the stones set. That way, you’d only be paying for labour and the mount itself. Just an idea… I really like the idea of a necklace too. What kind of stones are they? Diamonds? Good luck finding something.

Thanks for correcting my maths – my HB always says I’m appalling where numbers are concerned…and it’s obviously true!! Sounds like a really nice idea to pass the ruby on – but a ruby centre with two diamond side stones also sounds very tempting!! Hope you post some pics when it’s all done.

I think a three stone with the diamonds surrounding the ruby seems like the best idea, especially if you aren’t loving two stone settings you’ve seen.

My suggestion would be to go totally custom if you really do want a two stone diamond ring and don’t compromise for a stock setting. I’m not a jewelry expert, but my *guess* would be that since two stone settings aren’t very common for erings, a lot of the premade settings available might be more of a cocktail/RHR style (just a guess).

If you aren’t in love with the ruby, or want to keep it unset, is there another colored stone you might want as the center? Or are you wanting all diamonds?

Oh, those stones are so pretty! I think it would make a great RHR with that ruby, and if your sister already has a diamond and platinum ring from them…lol. I wouldn’t feel too bad about keeping the ruby if that’s what you’d like to do! I also understand and think it’s sweet you want to give it to her because it’s her birthstone.

Adding a different colored stone could be costly depending on the stone, but a lot are very affordable. If you would like a different colored stone other than the ruby, I can link you to some sites to browse some very affordable gems :).

If not, here are some two stone designs I found…I’m not sure where your tastes run, as you said you didn’t really care for the “swirly” designs you saw…
