They say two’s company and three’s a crowd but we at Deliqa Gems beg to differ when it comes to trilogy sapphire diamond engagement rings. Trilogy sapphire rings make cherished engagement rings at Deliqa Gems as the choice of sapphire colours and cuts make for incredible combinations of three.
A trilogy ring is a group of three gemstones set side by side along a band. The centre stone is often larger, or set higher than the two other stones, which are identical and frequently used as fabulous sapphire diamond engagement rings. A second type of trilogy ring using three stones of the same size make impressive wedding bands, eternity and friendship rings.
Trilogy, or sometimes known as Trinity rings has become popular in modern day. The choice of gemstones, their colour and cut give Trilogy rings their individual personality.
The three stones in a trilogy sapphire ring can be very symbolic representing the different stages of a couple’s journey in "past", "present" and “future”. The centre stone representing the “present” or proposal is flanked on the left with the “past” (celebrating the memories leading up to the proposal) and on the right “future” (flagging the hopes and dreams ahead of them). Other relationships or commemorations can be celebrated in a trilogy ring by dedicating it to “friendship”, “love” and “devotion” or to “love”, “honour “ and “cherish”.
Natural sapphire trilogy rings make a popular choice at Deliqa Gems with a myriad of beautiful coloured sapphires from the softest sky blue, to cornflower to royal blue, the palest yellows, champagne, lemon to vivid canary yellows and syrupy apricots, spearmint, forest and citrine greens and dual personality blue-green teals, rosebud pinks, peach to lotus coloured padparadschas and hot pinks, violets and vivid purples.
After selecting a central sapphire, consideration must be given to the cut – will it be round, oval, cushion, pear, marquise, fancy, radiant or emerald cut. The twin shoulder gemstones are frequently diamonds and can offer an impressive creative difference with their range of cuts. Lastly the choice of metal that will compliment your design is chosen, using either white, yellow or rose gold, platinum, palladium or a mix of metals.
