There is plenty of advice around when it comes to picking this type of engagement ring. We’ve put together four tips to help you choose a trilogy engagement ring to pop the question with.

Think About Your Trilogy Engagement Ring Setting 

The setting is absolutely crucial when selecting a trilogy engagement ring as it holds the ring’s three stones in place. 

When it comes to choosing the setting for your trilogy engagement ring, there are a couple of options available for you to consider. The most common trilogy engagement ring setting is prong as it includes metal prongs, which hold the diamonds or gemstones into place. This ring setting allows plenty of light to reach the stones, thus enhancing the sparkle of the stones.

Other setting options you may want to consider for your trilogy engagement ring include bezel and channel. The bezel setting is another popular choice as it features a thin band of metal that surrounds the diamond or gemstones. 

The channel setting is another trilogy engagement ring style that’s popular. This setting features  diamonds or gemstones that are set into a channel in the band, creating a sleek and modern look.

Round Cut or Princess Cut Diamond?

After you’ve selected the setting of your ring, the next step is to choose the shape of your diamonds or gemstones. Some of the most popular diamond shapes for trilogy engagement rings include round cut and princess cut diamonds.

The round cut trilogy engagement ring is a classic option that offers brilliant sparkle and its symmetrical shape makes it a popular choice for engagement rings. This classic diamond cut features a round cut centre stone diamond, surrounded by two round side stones, providing plenty of sparkle.

If your partner enjoys modern jewellery, then it may be worth considering a princess cut trilogy engagement ring. This type of ring features a square centre stone diamond, surrounded by two square cut side stones, providing a sleek, modern look.

Consider Combining Diamonds And Gemstones On Your Ring

Trilogy engagement rings don't always have to feature three diamonds; you can also combine diamonds and gemstones for a truly unique engagement ring. 

Adding coloured gemstones to your ring can add a pop of colour and make it stand out from traditional diamond engagement rings. You can choose birthstones or gemstones that hold a special meaning to you and your partner while representing the past, present and future of your relationship together. 

Combining diamonds and gemstones also creates a beautiful contrast, with the diamonds providing a sparkling backdrop for the coloured gemstones on your engagement ring.

Set a Budget For Your Trilogy Engagement Ring 

Before you start shopping for a trilogy engagement ring, you need to set a budget and decide how to split it between the centre stone and the setting.

There are a couple of ways you may want to distribute both the setting and centre stone of your partner’s trilogy engagement ring. You may want to have a sparkly setting, while having a modest centre stone or you could have a centre stone as the centrepiece of your trilogy engagement ring.

You want to make sure that the money you’ve budgeted for your partner’s engagement ring fits securely on their ring finger.
