There are so many different kinds of engagement rings available, that the sheer scope of options can certainly make the search overwhelming if you don’t already have some aspects in mind. Whether you’ve decided on a three-stone ring or are still figuring out what style you’d like to purchase, we hope that our list of three-stone engagement rings will help guide you toward to perfect piece!
1. Denton Ring
Price: $19,000. Learn more about the Denton Ring.
Starting off the list with a solid option, the Denton is a perfect balance of elegance and class. Handcrafted in platinum on 18k yellow gold circa 1905, the Edwardian-era Denton Ring features a 1.88-carat center diamond with J color and VS1 clarity. The equally stunning diamonds accompanying the center stone are approximately 0.50 carats each and have overall color and clarity grades of I to J and VS2 to SI1 respectively. If you want a traditional option, then there’s no going wrong with the Denton.
2. Bergon Ring
Price: $96,000. Learn more about the Bergon Ring.
For one of our most exquisite and luxurious options, consider the Bergon Ring. The price is quite a significant jump, but the center stone certainly validates this.
Firstly, the cushion-shaped antique rose-cut center diamond is GIA-certified as 3.11 carats, D color, and VS1 clarity. That means that the stone is colorless, and in fact holds the highest possible color grade, making this a rare piece indeed. Not only that, but it has significant weight and a complementary cut to deliver charm, warmth, and a gorgeous aesthetic.
What’s more, the side stones total approximately 1.50 additional carats and are the perfect size and shape to flatter the central diamond. Finally, even the shank exceeds expectations as it is lined with micro-pavé diamonds, adding modern appeal. If you’re looking for the best of the best, then the Bergon is an excellent place to start.
3. Redmond Ring
Price: $9,000. Learn more about the Redmond Ring.
Up next, the Redmond is here to impress with its stunning geometric design and colorless center diamond. The vintage emerald-cut center stone is GIA-certified as 1.02 carats, F color, and VS1 clarity, while a trapezoidal diamond sits on either side. What’s more, this dazzling piece features numerous additional accent diamonds bordering the central stones, lining the shank, and decorating the bridge.
4. Piccadilly Ring
Price: $45,000. Learn more about the Piccadilly Ring.
If you’re more interested in the central stones, then the Piccadilly offers an alternative that trades diamond accents for improved central stone size. The 2.50-carat emerald-cut center stone is GIA-certified as H color and VS1 clarity and is flanked by two graduating baguette-cut diamonds on each side.
Although the embellishments and accent stones are toned down in this design, there are still several additional stones to mention. Eight small diamonds decorate each side of the bridge, while three modestly sit on each shoulder.
5. English Ring
Price: $21,000. Learn more about the English Ring.
If you’re looking for something minimal, yet exquisite, then the English Ring is one to keep an eye on.

Finally, the center stone is 2.06 carats with J color and VS2 clarity, while the additional diamonds total 0.63 carats.
