Of course, there are many strange quirks and customs related to jewellery. A trilogy (or trinity) ring is one with three stones.
This popular design is used for many different occasions from engagement to wedding and friendship rings. The best example of this style of ring is the piece Meghan Markle endorsed when she got engaged to Prince Harry in 2017.
Trinity rings were traditionally crafted with three diamonds - a larger central stone, with one either side. When you browse online jewellers, you will find trilogy diamond engagement ring that are very affordable. The online jeweller does not have the massive expense of running a retail outlet and can therefore offer the customer lower prices, averaging 15-20% cheaper than a traditional jeweller.
If you’re not one for customs and traditions, there’s no reason you can’t design a ring with a central diamond, with a pair of rubies or sapphires either side. Adding colour is a great idea and if you approach a custom jeweller, you can have your concept turned into reality, using the stones of your choosing. Two pink Argyle diamonds would look stunning with a central clear diamond, which is a popular design with young Australians. The custom jeweller can show you many fine images of trilogy diamond engagement rings and for around the same price as an off-the-shelf ring, you have aunique trilogy ring like no other.
There are two ways to go - a design with the central stone slightly larger, or have all three diamonds exactly the same size. When you commission a custom jeweller, you get to choose every aspect of the ring, namely, the kind of stones, stone size, stone cut, metal, and setting. If the supporting stones are smaller, this will enhance the main diamond. With the right cut and setting, maximum sparkle is achieved.
