Are three-stone engagement rings symbolic?
Three-stone engagement rings represent your history together, your present, and your future.
Are three-stone engagement rings more expensive than other engagement rings?
It all depends on the carat weight and quality of both the center stone and the sidestones. Three-stone engagement rings make a great choice when you are designing a ring on a budget, because you can keep the center stone smaller and embellish it with additional stones.
Should all stones in a three-stone setting be the same quality?
The center stone will be the most important diamond in terms of quality, because it's also the largest. The stones on the side are smaller and, if desired, can be of a lesser diamond grade than the center stone, but they should be within two color ranges, or the difference may be noticeable.
