Trilogy, meaning ‘group of three’ is a known classic to engagement rings, as a Trilogy Ring holds a lot of value in meaning and fashion. Traditionally there is one larger centre stone accompanied by two other stones (diamonds or gemstones) smaller in size or varied in shape in order for the centre to stand out.
Ruby, Emeralds and Sapphires often take centre stage, making the ring a more involved choice that is suited to personal expression and individual style. However, it is anything but uncommon for there to be three diamonds also. The middle stone is often more exquisite in detail, where the shoulder diamonds become part of the supporting cast.
Trilogy rings are deeply meaningful. Although some claim that each stone can represent one of the “three little words” I love you, It is also a representation of the ‘past, present and future’ which is why the middle stone is larger or more prominent, to highlight the significance or importance of the present time or now, reaffirming the significance of "we are in this moment together”.
Although diamonds are the ultimate (or traditional) symbol of love and durability of promises, the centre stone of a trilogy ring may be a particular gemstone employed to convey a further feeling or emotion that is linked back to the gemstones meaning: emerald for faithfulness, rubies for passion, sapphire for truth and peace.
An Engagement Ring, Wedding Ring and Eternity Ring all signify particular moments or events. The versatile trilogy ring may be presented as an engagement ring or as an alternative to the more conventional eternity ring. The trilogy ring may also be given as a token of expression around a personal celebration or sentiment such as the birth of a child, or an anniversary.
The beautiful thing about creating and designing your own ring, is that you have complete control in choosing the design, make and materials so that the significance and meaning behind the ring, is exactly what you want it to be.
