When buying an engagement ring featuring VRAI created diamonds, it’s important to not only choose a style that compliments your look, but also holds deep meaning for you. This is, after all, fine jewelry that you’ll be wearing for the rest of your life. Selecting details that are symbolic and unique to your love story make your engagement ring setting stand out from the rest.
This is part of the appeal of a Past Present Future engagement ring. The lab-grown three-stone setting is a meaningful choice that puts your love story on full display.
What Is A Past Present Future Diamond Ring?
A Past Present Future Ring is an engagement ring featuring three diamonds. Each diamond represents a different phase of your life together. It can be given as a birthday or anniversary gift, or for self-gifting as well.
VRAI and other retailers refer to this style as a Three Stone engagement ring. It is also sometimes called a Trio or Trinity engagement ring.
What Is A Past Present Future Ring’s Meaning?
The meaning of a Past Present Future ring is self-explanatory; it refers to when you met your future spouse, the moment you decided to marry, and the future you will spend together. Although interpretation is personal, many consider the center stone to represent the present, while the two side stones represent the past and future. Keep this in mind when buying a diamond for this setting.
What Are Popular Past Present Future Rings?
When selecting your own engagement ring, it’s better to make your decision on personal preference and not trends. However, there are certain styles of Past Present Future rings that are sought after again and again. Read on to find your inspiration.
Platinum Past Present Future Rings
Platinum is known for both its purity and durability. A platinum engagement ring is considered one of the ultimate expressions of craftsmanship and indulgence. Choosing a platinum Past Present Future ring is therefore the perfect way to celebrate a long-lasting union with a design made to pass on for generations to come.
Yellow Gold Past Present Future Rings
Yellow gold engagement rings have timeless appeal, perhaps because they are the color most associated with gold itself. Past Present Future Rings in 18k solid yellow gold create a look that is both substantial and sophisticated and is perfect for those wanting a classic style that will stand the test of time.
White Gold Past Present Future Rings
A white gold Past Present Future ring marries both modern and traditional style. An 18k white gold engagement ring has a clean and contemporary appeal that works well with any style. With this particular setting, it has the look and feel of a future heirloom.
Rose Gold Past Present Future Rings
A 14k solid rose gold Past Present Future ring has a romantic look that makes it perfect for this symbolic setting. A rose gold engagement ring is sought after for being regal and vintage-inspired, but also for being playful and whimsical. This is also perfect for those with a mixed assortment of metal colors in their fine jewelry collection, as rose gold often pairs well with other colors.
Past Present Future Marquise Rings
Marquise shaped diamonds are known for maximizing their carat weight, meaning they often appear larger than other diamond shapes of the same weight. So a Past Present Future ring featuring three Marquise shaped diamonds creates a bold and dramatic look. Consider pairing with other fancy shapes, like Pear and Trillion, for a playful look, or Round Brilliant and tapered Baguette for a style that’s slightly more classic.
Past Present Future Princess Cut Rings
Princess cut diamonds marry the timeless beauty of a Round Brilliant cut diamond with the clean lines of a modern shape. A Past Present Future Princess cut ring gives this classic setting a contemporary twist. Pair with Round Brilliant or Pear shaped diamonds for an elegant contrast in forms, or with Trillion or tapered Baguette shaped diamonds for a sleek or futuristic feel.
Past Present Future Round Brilliant Rings
The Round Brilliant diamond is known the world over for its timeless beauty, making it the most sought after diamond shape. A Round Brilliant Past Present Future ring creates a look of effortless and everlasting elegance. Choose a trio of Rounds for a classic and symmetrical look, or pair with Pear, Trillion, or tapered Baguette shaped diamonds for a ring as unique as your love story.
Past Present Future Ring FAQs
The common questions couples ask when considering a Past Present Future ring.
Are There 2 Carat Past Present Future Rings?
Depending on your budget and style, you may choose a Past Present Future 2 carat diamond engagement ring featuring a 2 carat center stone. In general, the side stones of this three-stone setting are ¼-½ carat. For larger side stones, speak with a diamond expert to see if a custom design is possible.
Are There Past Present Future Ring Sets?
There are no matching Past Present Future wedding rings, so there is technically not an exact set. However, many wedding bands pair wonderfully with this setting, such as a Flat, Round, Infinity, or petit Eternity band, so create the wedding ring set that’s personally right for you.
What Wedding Band Should I Wear With Past Present Future Rings?
The best way to find a wedding band that pairs perfectly with a Past Present Future ring is to book an appointment with a diamond expert. They will guide you through the styles that will fit most comfortably with this engagement ring setting. They advise starting with a Round or Flat band, a petite Eternity band, or the Infinity bands.
Different styles of bands, like a Signature V or Curator, that feature prominent dips or curves, might not align as well with the three diamonds in your setting. This also depends largely on the diamond shapes you select. Be sure to try a wedding band on with the ring to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.
What Are Past Present Future Anniversary Rings?
A Past Present Future ring is perfect for an anniversary gift, as the three stones often represent the many chapters together in your relationship.
Popular Past Present Future anniversary rings often feature a center stone the same shape as the original engagement ring, with either the same or different shapes for the side stones. This is also the opportunity to choose a diamond shape, color, or details that are bolder or more dramatic than an original and more timeless engagement ring design.
Past Present Future vs Three Stone vs Trio
Past Present Future, Three Stone, and Trio usually refer to the exact same three-stone engagement ring setting and can be used interchangeably. Another term sometimes used is a Trinity ring.
Depending on the design, sometimes Trio refers to a ring with three diamonds of equal size, while a Three Stone generally has smaller side stones.
VRAI refers to this setting as Three Stone only.
