I agree with a PP about making it a RHR… for an ering it’s a little much in my opinion.  But I like the overall idea of it.

It’s YOUR engagement ring. If it makes you happy and you love it, I say go for it!

I like bleusteel ‘s idea about stacking coloured rings instead – Personally, with three colours on one ring the lack of symetry would bug me!

Perhaps you could get a ruby band and an emerald band instead? Then you could take those off when you are wearing something they might clash with.

@margaerry:  honestly it depends on your patriotism. Are you an italian, or are you ITALIAN (proud to be, and tell everyone how proud you are)?

If you’re gung-ho ITALIAN, then go for it. If you just like your home country, but don’t generally proclaim your home country constantly, it may be too much for your lifestyle.

@margaerry:  I actually think it is a fantastic idea! I LOVE that it’s your birthstones! Now, if they weren’t your birthstones, I would be a little hesitant, but I love the idea! I think you should go for it! I just think you need to keep the center diamond more prominent.

I’m not crazy about it… What about making them the little peek a boo side stones (or whatever they’re called !) lol.

No, I don’t think it will look pretentious.

As for wearing it every day as your engagement ring, that’s really a personal decision. Think about whether this will stand the test of time for you. I don’t really think the colors in your ring have to match your clothing, though.

@margaerry:  I TOTALLY get it.  I’m Irish, and my e-ring has Celtic knotwork on the sides of the center stone.  I was skeptical about it but and little to my fiance’s knowledge, decided AGAINST IT in my head!!  But when I saw the ring in person when he proposed, it was much more understated than I imagined and definitely looked like an e-ring.

I suggest trying to see something similar in person.

I am deeply fond of symmetry, so the lack of it would drive me a little nuts.  To pull it off I would have to go with an all-white engagement ring with one band of emeralds on one side and another band of ruby on the other side.  

As far as outfit matching goes, my engagement ring has a garnet as the center stone, and matching isn’t a concern at all.

@atreyu547:  That’s a way better idea. I’d go nuts if I had a three stone ring with different colored sidestones. It’s not my ring, but I also don’t think it’s pretty.

I believe Prince Joachim of Denmark did this for his rbide, Princess Marie. She’s French, so the stones were sapphire, ruby and diamond.

The idea was nice but the execution was not…but that was for *that* particular ring.
