What is a 3 stones ring for?
Three stones engagement rings usually hold a different meaning to the more traditional solitaire options. That’s because they tell the story of your journey together with your significant other. Did you know that the three stones on the engagement ring represent your past, present, and future?
The largest of the three stones represent your present. It always gets placed in the centre of the three stones;
The two smaller stones represent your past and future respectively.
Of course, the representation of those three stones isn’t fixed. It can symbolise things like love, fidelity, and friendship! The meaning of the three stones can even be something known only to you and your partner if you wish. Three stones rings are an ideal choice for couples that want a deeper meaning for their rings.
How to wear a 3 stones ring?
It goes without saying that you want to keep your three stones ring in immaculate condition at all times. The last thing you want is to have it scratched or damaged in some way! When it comes to wearing a three stones ring, you put it on your finger as you would any other type of ring. In Western culture, it is usually customary to put an engagement ring on your left hand’s third finger (i.e. the ‘wedding finger’). But, in some parts of the world, the ring-wearer may put the 3 stones ring on their right hand’s third finger!
To look after your engagement ring, be sure to take it off before you have a shower or bath, and before you go to bed.
Where can you buy a 3 stones ring?
As you can appreciate, there are many jewellers in Ireland that can provide you with a three stones ring. The thing is, there are a few points to consider before making such a purchase. They are as follows:
What levels of customisation are available. At Jacobson Diamonds, you have complete control over the way your three stones ring looks and feels. There are many diamond cuts to choose from, and even a variety of precious stones if diamonds aren’t your thing;
Which diamond certification gets provided with the ring. Not all diamond rings come with a certificate. The good news is that all rings bought from Jacobson Diamonds come with certification for your added peace of mind.
How big is a 3-carat diamond?
When designing your diamond engagement ring, you can decide how many carats it has. Three-carat diamond rings are among the most popular with people wanting engagement rings. But, if you thought about getting a three-carat ring for your significant other, have you ever wondered how big such a ring is?
To put things into perspective, a three-carat diamond weighs approximately 600 milligrams. They are big diamonds, and because they are a rare size, they are very expensive. However, they are a worthwhile investment!
When it comes to diamond dimensions, it will depend on the type of cut you choose. A round three-carat diamond has a face area of approximately 9.1mm. A princess cut is around 8mm.
