    I’m no expert, but that looks like a solitaire with side accent stones. Most three stone rings I’ve seen have all three stones set at a similar height, not recessed like your two side stones.  Your center stone is so prominent and set much higher.

    My vote goes to Solitare:)

    I always think the word “solitaire” refers to only one stone in the ring.

    I’d say three stone, because to me, a solitaire is just that – a single stone.

    I would say that it is a solitaire with accent stones.  Just like Solitaire can have smaller shoulder diamonds.  Which in my opinion won’t change the fact that it is still a solitaire

    Thats a solitaire with side accents. Three stones have the centre stone and then 2 identical shaped stones directly beside the centre that are mostly slightly smaller. 

    Lovely ring!

    solitaire

    1716, “solitary person, recluse,” from Fr. solitaire, from L. solitarius (see solitary). Sense of “a precious stone set by itself” is from 1727. Meaning “card game played by one person” is first attested 1746.
     
    I don’t get how a solitaire can be anything but ONE stone.

    @Karebearry:  Yes and I am saying that’s daft because by definition, if it has accent stones, it isn’t a solitaire… that’s what I am getting at.

    Not that it really matters though. It’s a pretty ring and that’s what matters lol.
