    All of them imply a contrast, the difference is their use. For example:

    Although he is rich, he is very unhappy. (A finite clause follows)
    Despite being rich, he is very unhappy. (An ing- non-finite clause follows)
    In spite of being rich, he is very unhappy. (NOT "despite of") (An ing- non-finite clause follows)
