Hello, I recently purchased a trilogy princess cut diamond ring for my fiance but she noticed that one of the side stones is noticeably smaller than the other. The jeweler said there was no problem with the ring. He said that with a trilogy ring the main considerations are: The cut of the stone, the width (which he stated were equal on each side) and the measurement from the centre of the stone to the side. He said the depth of the stone will vary. Should the depth of the side stones on this type of ring be similar so one stone does not seem larger than the other? Kind regards and thanks in advance!
