I am not a fan of the three stone rings because I associate them with the religious meaning (Father, Son & Holy Spirit) and I am not religious at all.  I haven’t seen a lot of young people with them where I live.  I have a round halo with a plain shank.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE 3 stone rings! I know they are not for everyone, but I love how they don’t sit too high up in the setting (like a LOT of solitairs do) and I really love what they symbolize. 3 stones rings represent past, present, and future. 

My Darling Husband and I dated for 6 years before he proposed to me and I looked at a lot of solitairs, but in my heart I knew I would always want a 3 stone.

@Timshel:  I’m young and I love my 3 stone ring.  Sorry for the pic quality, it’s the best I have access to on my work computer.

I never pass up a chance to show off my gorgeous ring:

Of course, I’m married now, so it has this beauty to go with it:

I never thought of three stone rings having some religious symbolism, considering Darling Husband and I are both agnostic, but I do like the “past, present, future” aspect.

But in all honesty, I just love three stone rings. I think they are very classy & visually appealing.

TO @MrsTVLover:  another one who’s never heard of a 3 Stone Ring in reference to Religion (wouldn’t it be called a Trinity Ring if that was the case ?)

I am over 50, and remember when 3 Stone Rings were first introduced, it was a promotion in the 1970s to get women married in the later 1940s and 1950s (post war) to upgrade their rings … for their 25th Anniversary (as they would have had very small diamonds… ie My Mom’s were just tiny specks / chips).

It started with the 3 Stone Rings… for Past – Present – and Future and was so successful, that they started marketing “Anniversary Bands” not long after (what today we call Eternity Bands)

TO @Timshel:  curious do you have any pics for reference of what you’ve been looking at yourself / have in mind ?

Lol, the more ring porn the better here on the RING BOARD

😉 *wink*

I’ve always loved three stones. You can make the two main side stones small, so at first glance it might look like a solitaire, but there are actually 3 central stones.

@This Time Round:  maybe.  I’ve never heard of a trinity ring.  Interesting history!
