Round Cut Three Stone Engagement Rings – The round is the perennial choice. It looks great in any setting with any arrangement of side stones.

Oval Three Stone Engagement Ring – Oval gems are a traditional choice, but they also leave a big impression as they look larger than other shapes of the same weight.
Cushion Cut Three Stone Engagement Rings – The cushion cut is one the original gem shapes. The brilliance and soft, gentle curves pair well with antique settings.
Pear Three Stone Engagement Ring – The pear shape is the least common choice, but its fire and brilliance is nothing short of excellence. Pear shape gems give the rings a sense of movement and direction unlike the other shapes.
