Two-stone v/s Three-stone Diamond Rings: Which One Is A Better Engagement Ring Choice?

two stone vs three stone rings

So you found your forever person (congrats!), and now it's time to pick the ring. But before you get overwhelmed by sparkle, let's talk about the first big decision: solitaire or a multi-stone ring?

While classic solitaires are timeless, two-stone and three-stone rings are having a major moment. This blog will help you pick the perfect match for your love story (and her finger)!

Two Stone Ring: 

Forget "me or you," two-stone rings are all about "toi et moi" (French for you and me). This romantic style symbolises the beautiful union of two souls becoming one and is all about two perfectly balanced stones, like partners in a happy marriage!


  • Customisation: Although two equal sized stones are chosen, you can always pick different stones that compliment each other. For instance, both of your birthstones! Or pick different shapes—round, princess, emerald...mix and match diamond shapes and sizes to create a ring that's as unique as your love story. 
  • Practical Choice: Two stones engagement ring design often sit lower than three, making them comfy for everyday wear. This is especially important for those with active lifestyles.

Now, before you run off to get one, a heads up: the symbolism might not be as elaborate as some three-stone rings, and uneven stones can throw the whole aesthetic off-center.  But hey, that's what consultations with a good jeweller are for, right?

Three Stone Ring: 

Three-stone rings, also known as trilogy rings, hold a deeper symbolic meaning. The larger center stone represents the present,the "now" of your love story. And the two smaller stones on either side? Those represent your shared past moments and the promise of a bright future you're building together. Deep, right?

Basically, it's a love letter in ring form! 

But before you get swept away, a heads-up: this design is a bit bolder than two-stone rings. Think of it as a statement piece, not for the minimalist at heart. Also, those three stones can sit higher on your finger, so comfort might be a concern for some.

Two-stone v/s Three-stone Ring Style 

So, you've decided to ditch the solitaire and embrace a trendier look. But two stones or three?  Both styles offer stunning brilliance, but the vibe is dhefinitely different.  

Let's break it down:

So, Which Ring is a better engagement choice?

It depends on your personal preferences and the message you want to convey. Consider these factors:

Understanding Your Partner's Style:

  • Two-Stone Rings: Ideal for partners who appreciate classic elegance and minimalist designs.
  • Three-Stone Rings: Perfect for those who love bolder statements and dramatic sparkle.

Symbolism and Meaning:

  • Two-Stone Rings: Emphasise unity and partnership, making them ideal for couples who value equality and balance.
  • Three-Stone Rings: Capture the journey of love through the past, present, and future, resonating with couples who connect with that symbolism. If you have a longer relationship, this would definitely fit your story! 

Comfort and Practicality:

  • Two-Stone Rings: Generally have a lower profile, offering greater comfort for everyday wear.
  • Three-Stone Rings: May sit higher on the finger due to the additional stone, potentially affecting comfort. Consider trying on different styles.


  • Two-Stone Rings: Can be more budget-friendly due to the use of fewer diamonds. However, the carat and quality of the diamonds will ultimately impact the cost.
  • Three-Stone Rings: Tend to be more expensive due to the additional diamond. The size difference between the stones can offer some flexibility in managing the cost.

Customisation Options:

Both: Both styles offer flexibility in diamond shapes (round, princess, emerald) and sizes. You can also personalise the metal type for the band (platinum, yellow gold, rose gold).

Remember, at Angara, we don't just offer stunning two-stone and three-stone rings—we take customisation a step further.  Whether you dream of a low-profile, budget-friendly three-stone ring for everyday wear or a more extravagant two-stone design, our expert jewellers can craft the perfect piece to suit your budget and lifestyle.  And the personalisation doesn't stop there!

Brownie Tips:

  • Consider your partner's lifestyle: If they're very active, a two-stone ring might be more practical.

  • Research diamond quality: The 4Cs (cut, clarity, color, carat weight) impact a diamond's brilliance and value.

  • Get your partner's ring size: This can be done subtly with the help of a friend or family member.

  • Shop around and compare prices: Get quotes from different jewelers to ensure you're getting a fair price.

  • Most importantly, choose a ring that reflects your love story! The symbolism and design should resonate with your unique bond.
