Capture Your Past, Present, and Future Love with an Oval Three Stone Engagement Ring

While we tend to think of diamond engagement rings as having one large stone, there are no hard-and-fast rules about what they should actually look like. Why? Because it’s your ring — and it should reflect your personality and style.

Want a ring with three stones? Go for it — and luckily, there are plenty of beautiful options to choose from, especially if you have your heart set on an oval three stone engagement ring.

Things to consider when buying an oval engagement ring

It’s hard to believe that oval diamonds have only been around since the middle of last century. An oval — basically an elongated round brilliant cut diamond — has a classic look to it that complements any woman’s finger.

That said, there are a few things you need to consider before deciding on an oval diamond for your engagement ring.

First, make sure you examine your diamond closely. Oval diamonds can suffer from the bow-tie effect. In simple terms, the bow-tie effect is a dark area on the diamond that resembles the tuxedo accessory. While that might seem interesting, it’s actually not good for your diamond because it doesn’t allow it to shine to its full potential. (One of our expert gemologists can help you figure out if a particular stone suffers from this.)

Also, take your lifestyle into consideration. Some oval diamonds are high set in engagement rings, so it might not be a good choice if have an active lifestyle or work with your hands a lot (like in the medical profession). Either make sure to pick a setting that allows the diamond to sit more flush with your finger, or opt for a different type of diamond. (Or, we suppose, have a necklace handy so you can loop your engagement ring through it whenever you need to use your hands!)

You'll also need to pick your side stones

The good news with oval three stone engagement rings is that you can pretty much pick any diamond shape to go with it — and it’ll still look amazing. You can mix your brilliant cut oval diamond with brilliant cut side stones or step cut baguettes. Some people like mixing the two, while some people prefer matching. Just sure you know which one you — or your special someone — prefers.
