There are so many different ways to love a multi-stone engagement ring. There’s the classic 3-stone setting, famously worn by the likes of Grace Kelly and Jennifer Lopez, or the toi-et-moi ring, popularized by trendsetters like Megan Fox and Emily Ratajkowski. And then there are the even more out-of-the-box styles featuring multiple diamonds, like Zooey Deschanel’s floral-inspired engagement ring. The options are truly endless when looking for multi-stone engagement ring inspiration. “I love pairing a more traditional-shaped diamond with some unusually shaped side diamonds, like kites or lozenges,” says Azlee designer Baylee A. Zwart. “The combinations are endless and can be really special and meaningful depending on what the pairing represents to the couple.”
Plenty of engagement ring designers will work with you to create a custom ring featuring as many diamonds as you’d like, in any shape or arrangement that calls your name, but it can be hard to know where to start. “So much depends on the brilliance of the stones being used and how they can complement one another without detracting from either’s glow,” says Corina Madilian of Single Stone. “For example, an Emerald cut diamond may lend itself to be set alongside baguette cut diamonds while a rose cut may look best with French or European cut diamonds.”
“I think the strategic pairing of two or more stones together can be one of the most beautiful concepts done in jewelry,” muses Zwart. “It can have a transformative effect and bring an entirely new personality to the stones and the project.”
