A ring featuring three stones, like The Maxine ring, is known as a trilogy or trinity ring. This ring style celebrates the past, present and future of life with your lover, so has remained a favourite with romantics everywhere. Trilogy rings are also the perfect self-gift - loving others always starts with loving ourselves.
The illusion setting is credited to a Parisian jeweller, Oscar Massin, who was influential to the Art Nouveau movement in the late 1890s. This style of setting incorporates a ring of fluted metal, usually platinum or rhodium, which surrounds the girdle of the diamond, thereby making the diamond appear larger. This was popularised again, after the end of the war - 1950s era engagement rings featured modestly-sized diamonds being presented in white gold illusion settings in order to make them appear larger.
