Three-Stone Rings: Past, Present and Future

You may be drawn to the classic, yet beautiful look of the three-stone ring, but do you know the true significance of the design? It’s said that the stones each symbolize the past, present and future love of the cherished couple - destined to map the momentous phases of the couple’s relationship. That’s a pretty deep thought crafted into one beautiful piece of jewelry.

Diamond Engagement Options

The three-stone diamond engagement ring not only displays the love shared, but it also proudly showcases that commitment. It can be displayed through the traditional diamond look, a black diamond look, or a pink diamond look.

 

 Promise Ring Options

Three-stone designs aren't limited to engagement rings. Promise your love with a ring celebrating romance’s amazing journey.  Look at these promise ring options in white gold, yellow gold and rose gold.

Gemstone Options

Available in a spectrum of colors, three-stone rings flourish in a multitude of gemstones.  Take a look at the brilliant spring shades of these emerald, blue topaz, sapphire and amethyst rings.

Looking For Luck? Lucky You!

Evil eyeOh the silly things we do for luck! From keeping rabbit's feet (which really doesn't seem all that lucky for the bunny!), to wearing evil eyes or keeping a lucky number, most everyone has that one special talisman that keeps the good luck flowing.

For many people, that 'lucky' item is a piece of jewelry. Lucky for you (get it?), Zales has all kinds of lucky looks available!

ShamrockThe most obvious, of course is the shamrock or clover (see how we got a St. Patty's Day reference in there?). Zales has a bunch (pun alert!) of shamrocks and clovers - including some that dazzle with diamonds or gemstones like this fabulous emerald version. See all of our sharp shamrock looks (say that five times fast) here.

Another symbol of good luck is the horseshoe. Lots of people believe that to hang a horseshoe with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by. To hang it with the ends pointing down is bad luck as all that floating good luck will fall just fall out.  All that being said, this super-cute DOUBLE horseshoe pendant is twice the luck! As an aside, all our horseshoe jewelry points up - so that's a good sign (and just good fashion sense too). 

HorsehoeSome other lucky icons used by Americans (and some Canadians) include rabbits, ladybugs, wishbones and elephants (this super cute jade one is EXTRA lucky!). In other cultures, dragons, dragonflies, turtles, fish and bamboo are lucky tokens.

In the immortal words of Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry, "Do you feel lucky?"  Whatever talisman you use as your personal symbol of good luck, you're certain to find a super stylish version at your local Zales store or at Zales.com.

Enchanting Aquamarine: March’s Birthstone

The first signs of spring are here, which means it’s time to trade in winter’s rich, saturated colors in favor of a lighter, brighter look. The icy, ocean-blue of the aquamarine is the perfect way to welcome spring – and luckily for any March birthday girls, it’s also this month’s birthstone!

Aquamarine can range from the palest blue to a pure turquoise. Dying to rock a sunnier shade this spring? No problem – in spite of its name, aquamarine also has a golden variation, showcased perfectly in this show-stopping yellow aquamarine ring.
