The centerpiece of Amal Clooney’s engagement ring is a breathtaking 7-plus carat emerald cut diamond. Known for its elongated shape and stepped facets, the emerald-cut diamond offers a unique and regal look. The center stone is carefully secured with four prongs, allowing light to cascade through the facets, maximizing its brilliance.

Flanking the emerald-cut diamond are two tapered baguette cut diamonds. These side stones enhance the center stone, providing balance and symmetry to the overall design. Their sleek and elongated shape beautifully complements the emerald-cut diamond, resulting in a harmonious and visually striking composition. The choice of a platinum band ensures durability and enhances the brilliance of the diamonds with its sleek and lustrous aesthetic.

Amal Clooney's engagement ring was crafted by the distinguished British jeweler, George Cleverley. Known for his exceptional skill and attention to detail, George Cleverley is highly regarded for creating extraordinary pieces that exude timeless elegance, something that was certainly achieved with Clooney’s ring.

What is a Three-Stone Setting?

The three-stone setting, also known as a trilogy or trinity setting, is a classic and meaningful choice for engagement rings. Each stone in the setting represents a significant aspect of a couple's journey together: the past, the present, and the future. The central stone symbolizes the present, celebrating the commitment and love shared in the present moment. The side stones represent the past and future, honoring the memories and the dreams that the couple will create together.

Not only does the three-stone setting hold deep sentimental value, but it also offers a versatile and visually appealing aesthetic. The contrasting sizes and shapes of the stones create a captivating display of light and sparkle, making the ring an eye-catching statement piece. But keep in mind that to create a cohesive look, it’s important to match the color of the main diamond and side stones as closely as possible.

How to Get the Look  

Choosing Your Stone

When considering an emerald cut diamond for your engagement ring, there are several key characteristics to remember to ensure you select a stone of exceptional quality and beauty. The cut and clarity play a crucial part in the diamond’s appearance. A well-proportioned cut maximizes brilliance and minimizes any visible imperfections. Symmetrical facets with clean, straight lines create the coveted hall-of-mirrors effect, but also make it easier to see inclusions. So a higher clarity grade can help ensure imperfections are not visible to the naked eye.

The elongated shape and large table of the emerald cut diamond create an elegant and timeless look, but also emphasize any color within the stone. Look for a color grade of at least an F for a stone that appears bright white, and if you prefer a warmer, slightly tinted diamond, look for a stone in the I-J range. And lastly, the length-to-width ratio of the diamond dictates the overall shape. A ratio between 1.3-1.5 creates a classic elongated shape we’re most familiar with, but you may opt for a more rectangular or more square shape based on your preferences.
