Russian Wedding Rings

Date Added: 27/03/2015
 


 

Russian wedding rings (also known as Trinity, Trilogy or Puzzle rings) are a style of three intertwining rings to create one ring, and represent holy matrimony. It is mostly worn on the ladies right hand.

Traditionally, the three rings are different coloured gold’s of yellow, rose and white gold.
All three bands together represent the Holy Trinity: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

     
 

As with many traditional rings, there are always the modern versions. It’s quite common to now have stones in the bands or engraving. You can also have just two bands, or four, five, six or more bands intertwine, and they don’t need to be three different golds. Some people opt for all white, or white and yellow bands only. 

We have recently had two customers do their own take on the Russian wedding ring design for dress rings, and we custom made them with beautiful results: 

Our first client added diamonds and engraving to her bands. She had found the rolling of the intertwining rings uncomfortable to wear, and so she and wanted the rings separate to wear as a stack.

Our second client wanted one ring, joined at the base and have the three bands separated at the side of the ring to be intertwining at the top. She added pink sapphires and Moissanite to each ‘ring’.

Traditional Russian wedders, or modern takes: both look great, but what's your pick?
