The number 3 is very symbolic. Three-stone engagement rings represent your past, present, and future with your significant other, but the number itself has come to represent creativity, communication, growth, and expression.
The Meghan Markle Effect
In an act of massive symbolism, Prince Harry designed an engagement ring for Meghan Markle that incorporated a stunning, conflict-free center diamond that he personally sourced. That center stone was flanked by two gems that belonged to his mother. The two continue to create representations of their love and journey together with fine jewelry: they've reportedly modified the engagement ring over time, and Harry gifted his wife with an eternity band for their 1-year wedding anniversary. They've also incorporated the birthstone of their little family into Meghan's bridal set. Needless to say, the trendsetting royals have given three-stone engagement designs some clout.
"The ring is obviously yellow gold because that's [Markle's] favorite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewelry collection, to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together," Harry said during the couple's first sit-down interview with the BBC, shortly after they announced their engagement.
Leandra, shown above this line, is a stunning engagement ring with baguette side stones. Legend has it that Giotto once demonstrated his enormous technical skill by drawing a circle; it was a perfect circle, drawn without the aid of a compass or stencil. Dana has always been inspired by this story, and relates many of his classic designs to the pursuit of mastering simple shapes and proportions. Each diamond layout is personally selected by the Designers to ensure harmony and balance; whether they're designing around a 1.50ct diamond or a 3.00 carat diamond, Dana & Rad will sort through hundreds of options before settling on the perfect stones. Since most three stone rings can seem quite linear, we've designed a gently sweeping under-bezel, softly angling Leandra's side diamonds. The end result is a three stone work of art that looks lovely on the hand from every angle. To shop Leandra, click here.

Since then, many couples have asked the designers to recreate this silhouette with diamonds starting at 1.50ct. Portia's sleek double claw prongs add focus to her center diamond, which is beautifully enhanced by two elegant pear shaped stones.
