That sounds gorgeous! Would you mind taking a pic for me if it’s not too much trouble?Beautiful choices! My husband gifted me a three-stone ring for our 10-year anniversary. We used my original ER center stone for one of the side stones in the new setting, and then he purchased a "matching" side stone and a larger center stone. Mine is closer to the 1:2:1 ratio previously mentioned. Center is 2.5 with 1.3 side stones. It's my dream ring.
Thank you I’ll look into this!Hi Linny,
I found it hard to vote, probably because they are lined up right next to each other, whereas if they are set in a ring the side stones sit a bit lower and are slightly angled which changes the look.
Sorry I don't have time right now to do the calculations but it is worth considering using the Golden Ratio. I plan to use the Golden Ratio when I finally get around to getting a ring made. I am on a bling ban now which will probably last a few years.
Here's a link to get you started if you are interested.
There is a concrete, mathematical approach that can help us get one step closer to creating amazing design experiences every time: the Golden Ratio.www.invisionapp.com
Towards the bottom of this link it talks about how to apply it to circles.
Good luck with your project.
The .53s would make a ring exactly like @cflutist 's gorgeous three stone. I will link a couple more pictures of hers for you to see the proportions. There is no right or wrong answer to the size of the side stones since it is all personal preference. If the center stone is a larger stone, I do not like huge side stones. I like stones to complement but not overwhelm the center. I think the placement and angles of the sides in the setting is critical, as well.Thank you all for your help! I’ve narrowed it down to either .43s for the side stones or .54s. There are no other options in either’s or Whiteflashe’s inventory! I already own the .54s as studs and the .43s will come next week for me to compare. I’m really liking a ~5mm side with my center since I have CZs in that size I’ve been comparing to my 2.14 center but that option doesn’t exist for purchase right now (since I need D color). The .43s are around 4.8-4.9mm - so a little smaller than my ideal preference and the .54s are 5.3mm so a little bigger. I seem to have a detailed eye for even minute size differences. I just sent back the .40s to because they were a little to small but I could see the difference in size between them! One was 4.72x 4.76mm and the other was 4.76x 4.78mm - less than .04 difference in size! My jeweler is surprised that I can see this and differences in color within the same color grade. I guess it’s a blessing and a curse lol! I’ll post another poll with hand shots once I have the final comparison of the two pairs next week. Thank you all!!
Ha, I was in the process of posting @cflutist 's ring when you posted that you wanted to see more pictures of hers! Here is a thread with a lot more pictures:
I love Trilogie, but with the current price drop, I could not pass on upgrading my center stone. I replaced the cut to order 2.21 F-SI1 with a 2.18 E-VS1. The two side CBIs are still .53s F, VS1 and VS2. There is a very slight difference in tint but my phone is having trouble capturing it...www.pricescope.com
