Three-stone engagement rings are particularly symbolic. Traditionally said to represent the past, present and future of the relationship, they are ideal for those who want a truly romantic style. Thanks to the three gemstones – or even more if they are set in halos – the three-stone style exhibits lots of stunning sparkle, too. Here are our favorite celebrity three-stone engagement rings.
Christina Ricci became engaged in February 2013, and married James Heerdegen in October of the same year. She wears a stunning three-stone engagement ring, comprised of one larger diamond and two smaller sidestones. Set in a yellow gold band, it is a very traditional style that suits her elfin beauty.
Country stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were married in 2011, with Shelton selecting a vintage three-stone engagement ring for his bride. A platinum band with a center diamond and two half-moon side stones, more brilliant diamonds are set into the ring’s band.
One Direction’s Zayn Malik proposed to Perrie Edwards in August 2013. The British pop stars opted for a relatively low-key, yet beautiful, three-stone diamond ring with vintage milgrain band. The center diamond looks to be between 1 and 1.5-carats.
Vanessa Minnillo wears a gorgeous geometric three-stone engagement ring, now that she’s married to Nick Lachey. Two trapezoid baguette diamonds on a platinum band border her 4-carat asscher-cut diamond. The look is very Art Deco glamour.
Nick Lachey’s ex Jessica Simpson – who is now married to Eric Johnson – has a July birthday. Eric decided to honor this with a three-stone ruby and diamond engagement ring (the ruby is July’s birthstone). An oval ruby, paired with pear-shaped diamonds is refreshingly traditional, especially when set in yellow gold.
While Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb never made it down the aisle – she’s now dating Joe Manganiello – we are still in awe of the engagement ring he Loeb helped design for her. Working with Scott Udell, owner of Ritani partner jeweler Two by London, he chose a 7-carat cushion-cut diamond, accented by two smaller diamonds on the side.
Nicole Kidman’s engagement ring from Keith Urban is a stunning vintage three-stone diamond engagement ring from Cartier. The dazzling piece makes such a style statement that even now they are married, Nicole is often seen just wearing her engagement ring without a wedding band.
