Out of all the current engagement ring trends, we think that three-stone engagement rings have the most staying power and will actually continue to gain popularity for years to come. A three-stone engagement ring represents the past, present, and future of your relationship, which is a sentimental notion that a lot of couples can get behind—and if nothing else, three diamonds are simply more fun to look at. Whether you're planning to propose soon and need to pick out a ring or you're curating a wish list to send hints to your partner, these three-stone diamond engagement rings are just some of the options we'd add to cart.
