How My Trio Rings Does Customized Rings Better

by Gillian Burgess Friday, 29 April 2016 Wedding Rings

It’s a good day when our customers are head-over-heels in love with their rings. And we’ve found that this happens a whole lot more often when people have the power to design their own engagement and wedding rings. Instead of searching for what they want in a limited inventory, they create customized ring sets that meet their exact style and specifications.




But what makes My Trio Rings different from other wedding jewelry retailers? We’re not the only company to offer customized rings – but we’re proud to offer more affordable, beautifully made options than our competitors. Couples who design their rings at My Trio Rings want to spend their hard-earned paychecks wisely, but they also don’t want to compromise on quality or craftsmanship. Here’s how we do customization better:

We have cluster and solitaire settings

Other retailers with customized engagement rings only offer solitaire settings. My Trio Rings’ Create Your Own tool has a beautiful selection of round-cut and princess-cut solitaire heads to choose from, but we also provide more affordable cluster head options. Cluster engagement rings combine many smaller diamonds for a big visual impact at a lower price than solitaire rings.

We offer customized ring sets

Buying trio sets – featuring matching wedding bands and an engagement ring – is far less expensive than purchasing each ring separately. You have omplete control to design your ideal trio ring sets online.

Our customized ring sets are just as affordable as our other rings

According to The Knot, the average engagement ring costs $5,978. And this high price point is apparent when you start browsing the customized ring options of our competitors. You may have a limited choice of more affordable custom engagement rings, but most will set you back several thousand dollars (just for one ring). My Trio Rings, on the other hand, has an impressive selection of custom trio ring sets for under $2,000 or even $1,000. Our customized ring sets are the same price as our other rings; you can create your own design without an extra markup.

See what our customers have to say about the customizable ring sets they bought:


1/2 Carat Trio Set in White Gold



"The rings are better than advertised. Everyone that has seen them has asked where we got them." - Gabriel R.

"I'm absolutely in love with this set! I love the matching his and hers band. My husband would love it as well because the mens ring has diamonds but is still masculine. I also love the center stone in the engagement ring. Everything is so beautiful!" - Lia G.

"I am absolutely in love with this set! The set is simple yet elegant. I like the single cut diamond shape on the ladies ring. The price is amazing too! Three rings for under $1,100?" - Stefanie L.


1 1/6 Carat Trio Set in White Gold




"Omg the rings are beautiful! My fiancé and I were surprised at how nice they were going to be. We were sceptical at buying the rings online but the prices were great. Sometimes they say if it's too good to be true it's not worth it. This was one purchase that was so worth it!" - Jenifer H.

"Absolutely beautiful!!! Everything I expected." - Ebony W.

"My husband and I love our rings. They are perfect. We had them engraved and they did an amazing job. The fit was on point thanks." - Jennifer P.


1 2/3 Carat Trio Set in Yellow Gold




"My husband and I absolutely LOVE our rings! We were hesitant in the beginning to purchase from an online store because we didn't have the option to see the rings in person, but we took a chance and I must say we are very happy we did. The rings looked great online and look 10 times better in person." - Sherlana W.

"Both the wedding ring and the engagement ring looks 50 times better in person." - Camerin P.

"Love my ring. Thanks so much for the professionalism!" - Shalise W.

1/3 Carat Trio Set in White Gold




"We love our rings! We loved the affordable layaway plan as it worked for our budget. Thank you for offering beautiful wedding sets that anybody can afford!!! We will be referring you to all our friends!" - Charity W.

"These rings are gorgeous and easy to resize." - Nhi N.



How to Customize Rings & Save Thousands

by Gillian Burgess Thursday, 21 April 2016 Wedding Rings

When you visualize custom-designed rings, you probably imagine the kind of outrageously expensive rings only accessible to the likes of celebrities (Kim Kardashian) or royalty (Kate Middleton).

But My Trio Rings offers customers the unique, personalized experience of custom designing your engagement and wedding rings, while keeping our prices as affordable as always.




In short, this is how it works:

  • We curate a selection of high-quality diamond heads and women’s and men’s wedding bands (in 10K and 14K white and yellow gold)
  • You use our interactive Create Your Own online tool to experiment with different looks that suit your style and your budget. If you’re not sure what you want yet, you can play around with thousands of variations to find your perfect fit. 
  • You build a matching trio ring set – a diamond engagement ring, a women’s wedding band and a men’s wedding band – and get immediate detailed information on your set’s appearance, specifications and price. 
  • If you have questions at any point, you can get assistance from our helpful customer service representatives. 
  • When you are ready to buy, you receive an additional 5% for creating a trio ring set – and if you compare your final price to those of our pre-designed rings, you’ll see that they’re very similar. If you were to create custom-designed rings with a traditional jeweler, you could expect to pay up to three times the “off-the-rack” price, according to The Knot. That’s thousands of dollars more! Plus, all of our standard policies still apply to custom ring sets – from our layaway plan to our 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

So those are the basics. But how does our Create Your Own ring set tool really work? Let’s walk through it, step by step (and follow along with our quick video).

Go to the Create Your Own page to start designing your customized ring sets.

Diamond Heads


Browse through the 20 different diamond heads available, and take your time exploring each one. When you click on each head, the detailed image instantly updates to show you exactly what the ring will look like. It’s perfect if you’re not sure if you like the look of a solitaire with a princess-cut or round-cut diamond, or if you can’t decide among the different cluster heads.




Women’s Rings


Once you’ve selected the head you want, click Next to select the women’s engagement ring and wedding band. You can compare what your setting looks like in 10K or 14K white or yellow gold. You are also able to choose from a huge selection of ring styles.

For example, see what the heart-shaped cluster head looks like on a delicate engagement ring featuring round-cut accent diamonds, paired with a simple complementary diamond wedding band. Then try out a totally different style, and decide what best suits you. At any point during this process, you can go back to Step 1 and choose a new diamond head.





Men’s Ring


When you’ve designed a bridal set you love, click Next to move on to the men’s wedding band. Choose from classic white or yellow gold bands (some plain, some set with diamonds) that complete your perfect trio ring set. When you add a men’s wedding band to the bridal set, you automatically receive a 5% discount.




And at this point in the design process, you can see all the details about the rings you’ve chosen. Click View Details under the bridal set or the men’s wedding ring to go to the product page, which will tell you everything you want to know: ring width, number of diamonds, diamond weight (carats), setting type and ring fit. You can also read customer reviews, plus more about our certificates of authenticity30-day satisfaction guarantee and payment plans.

Gorgeous & Inexpensive: Halo Rings Fit Your Budget

by Gillian Burgess Thursday, 17 March 2016 Wedding Rings

Halo rings are glorious for a lot of reasons. They’re stylish with a nod to vintage aesthetics. They offer countless opportunities for creative personalization. They take the sparkle factor to the next level and really stand out in the crowd.

But I have to be honest when I say my favorite thing about halo rings is their surprising affordability.

When you’re ring shopping and dazzled by the glitter of the halo engagement rings in front of you, your first thought is probably not, “Wow, those look super budget-friendly.” They don’t. They look like they fall into the “I probably shouldn’t even try this on because if I love it I’m in big trouble” category. But they’re sneaky cheap – wedding rings and engagement rings actually become a lot more accessible when you give into the siren song of diamond halo design.

The secret is in how the diamonds are expertly arranged. With a solitaire engagement ring, you are putting the focal point entirely on the center stone. It’s a classic and beautiful style – but your budget can limit how big you want to go. With a halo design, however, you don’t put all your eggs in one basket. The ring’s brilliance is spread out over the center stone and the single or double halo of diamonds around it. And because of that, a modest budget can go very far.

Ogle just a few of the affordable halo design options that could grace your finger.

Be still my heart

Wedding planning in the modern age means that you have access to more resources than ever before. Pinterest boards, style blogs, planning apps, online vendors – it’s all there for the taking.


All of this information is amazing because it gives you so many options. But all of this information is nerve-racking because it gives you SO MANY OPTIONS. How are you supposed to decide between the romantic tulle gown with a beaded sweetheart bodice, or the chiffon sheath with a dramatic plunging neckline? What if you plan a small informal wedding and later you regret not going all out for the huge traditional affair? It all gets to be a little overwhelming.

This form of “analysis paralysis” is stressful for couples trying to decide on which engagement and wedding rings to buy. After all, you’re only going to be wearing these rings for the rest of your life. Right now, diamond halo rings are incredibly popular. But couples often wonder, are they just a passing trend? If we buy matching halo rings now, will we want something different later on?

Diamond halo rings – like any style – aren’t for everyone. But here are a few reasons they could be right for you.






You love always being chic and put together, and you pride yourself on your excellent taste. You pay attention to what everyone is wearing, from celebrities to friends, and you love the fashionable halo look.





As far as you’re concerned, the more brilliant, the better. You aren’t one to shy away from the spotlight, and diamond halo rings maximize the sparkle factor. Even a small center stone looks big and beautiful with an attention-grabbing halo setting.





You may drool over celebrity engagement rings and gravitate toward pretty, shiny things… but a Kardashian you are not. You’re practical and not about to go into debt over jewelry. You’ve got a budget, and you intend to stick to it. Inexpensive halo rings are the perfect solution. They offer the style you want, at a price that fits your plans.





A cookie-cutter look just won’t cut it for you. You love showcasing your own unique flair and your rings should be no exception. Diamond halo rings are customizable to exactly the setting, shape and style you want.





If you already have your heart set on matching halo rings, nothing else will do. Say “yes” to true love, and pick out your perfect rings.
