A trilogy engagement ring is a type of ring that has three diamonds aligned together. It is popularly used as an engagement ring to signify how much you love your partner. A trilogy engagement ring can be customised in different ways, such as by choosing the type of metal band and setting or by having it set with coloured stones like sapphires or rubies. Here are some tips on finding the perfect one for your special someone:

Trim your style.
Choosing your style is a crucial component of buying a trilogy engagement ring. It will inform you about everything from the shape of the diamond to the metal used in making it.
The first step in choosing a style is to take note of your style and that of your partner. You’ll want to make sure the ring fits your personality and lifestyle before deciding what’s suitable for you both. The next step is looking at price points and deciding whether or not they match up with what’s important to each person involved in this process.
Take your partner’s finger measurement.
One of the first things to do is to measure your partner’s finger for size. This will help you know what size to buy and if the ring fits well. For this, you need a ring sizer that can be purchased from any jewellery store or online. Use it by placing it on the base of her index finger on her dominant hand and then taking note of its size (usually a number). Note down how many millimetres/inches she wears in that particular finger, so you don’t make any mistakes when choosing one for yourself later on!
If possible, get her involved in the process, so she doesn’t feel overwhelmed when it comes time for shopping day—or better yet: ask her what kind of ring would suit her before buying anything so there won’t be any surprises later on.
Check the 4C of the diamond.
When you’re choosing a diamond, you should also consider the 4C’s of a diamond. This is a set of criteria for grading and evaluating diamonds that consider cut, colour, clarity and carat weight (aka size).
Decide what you can afford to spend.
Once you have a budget in mind, consider how much the ring will cost and then think about other expenses. For example, if you’re planning on buying an engagement ring and a wedding band, they should be purchased together, so they match. This can add to the cost of your purchase and make it easier to reach or exceed your budget if you’re not careful.
If this would affect the quality of life for either party involved in purchasing it—or both parties—then it’s worth considering whether or not it’s worth going over budget now just so that things are taken care of later on the line. Even though it might seem like a good idea at first glance, there are often consequences associated with spending more than necessary on something like this: higher interest rates on loans for major purchases like cars and houses before too long down the track, too many years later.
Choose the type of setting and metal band.
The next step is to choose the kind of setting and metal band. You need to decide if you want diamonds or other stones on your ring and what kind of metal band you would like. The choice should be influenced by your style, budget and ease of maintenance – for example if you work with your hands a lot or have hobbies that stain your jewellery.
