Three stone rings with secure settings and good alignment are essential. If a ring is loose or angled out of its setting you should avoid this ring or get your money back. The ring needs good alignment with gemstones that are centered perfectly adjacent with each other. Finding great jewelry requires great jewelers. Check their credentials before you buy so that you make sure you make a quality purchase.
Cost is an important factor to consider as well. Three stone rings will generally cost a bit more since they have a larger carat weight overall compared to single gemstone rings. The quality of the gems will effect price too. It’s recommended to go with real stones rather than imitation stones, but if you cannot budget real stones, then imitation stones are one option.
