Marriage may not be forever for all the owners of these rings, but their rocks certainly are! Take a look at our top picks of celebrity engagement rings.
1. Elizabeth Taylor
We’re going to kick things old school and start off with the one and the only, Elizabeth Taylor. But which engagement ring do you ask? Of course, the show-stopping sparkler, featuring a 29.4ct emerald cut diamond gifted by Mike Todd. We think it’s safe to say this ring marked the beginning of elitist engagement rings.
An Honourable Mention: Although not an engagement ring as such, the lover all things jewellery received an impressive 33.19ct D VS1 Asscher cut diamond from husband #5, Richard Burton.
2. Emily Ratajkowski
Torn between your favourite two diamond cuts? Why don’t you take a page of Emily Ratajkowski’s book and pair the two together! The exceptional showpiece includes a princess and pear cut diamond set side by side in a yellow gold band. We absolutely adore the badass-ness of this ring, it’s minimal, bold and truly beyond compare.
3. Angelina Jolie
This long-awaited ring Brad Pitt proposed to Jolie with is an Art Deco dreamboat! The masterpiece took over a year to design and create. It features a large emerald cut centre stone with continuous graduating side stones on either side totalling a whopping 10 carats.
4. Heidi Klum
The model has an undoubtedly astounding ring dangling from her left ring finger. Fiance, Tom Kaulitz proposed Christmas Eve last year with an incredible three-stone ring. The ring features a 3 – 3.5 carat cushion cut Alexandrite accentuated by a halo of diamonds and cushion cut side stones.
5. Reese Witherspoon
Engaged back in 2010, Reese Witherspoon’s ring remains just as unique as ever! The actress is the owner to an estimated 4 carat Ashoka cut diamond set in a dainty pavé diamond set band. The incredibly rare Ashoka cut diamond is patented by William Goldberg, it has an elongated rectangular shape with rounded corners and boasts an impressive 62 facets.
6. Jackie Kennedy
Think twice? This First Lady was ahead of the two-stone trend way before its time! The ring President John F. Kennedy proposed with in 1952 featured an emerald cut emerald gemstone and emerald cut diamond (what a mouthful) set side by side, complemented by smaller baguette diamonds. 10 years later, Kennedy had her ring redesigned, replaced the baguettes with a wreath-like form of marquise diamonds.
7. Alexis Bledel
The girl that captured our hearts through Gilmore Girls moved on to capture the heart of Vincent Kartheiser while co-starring on the set of Mad Men. The actress said ‘yes’ to a beautiful vintage-inspired sparkler featuring a bezel-set octagonal cut diamond estimated to be worth somewhere around the $80,000 mark!
8. Olivia Wilde
Jason Sudeikis chose a round brilliant cut diamond surrounded by a halo of emeralds to bring out the colour in Olivia’s eyes. So romantic! The striking emerald green colour is complemented by an ultra-thin yellow gold band. By swapping a traditional diamond halo for coloured gemstones really makes a world of difference as it creates multiple focal points.
9. Kate Moss
The ring Kate Moss received from her former husband, Jamie Hince back in 2011 is one for the books. Literally! Her ring is a replica of the infamous Zelda Fitzgerald, socialite and wife to Scott F. Fitzgerald. The ring was made based on sketches and written details of the ring revealed throughout Ms Fitzgerald’s diary.
10. Amal Clooney
A classic ring for a classic beauty. George Clooney proposed in 2014 with an incredible 7 carat emerald cut diamond highlighted by tapered baguettes on either side. Apparently, it took Amal a whole 25 minutes to say ‘yes’!
11. Eva Longoria
José Bastón popped the question during December 2015 while a Dubai sunset took place, with celebratory champagne ready to go. As if the proposal wasn’t amazing enough, wait till you check out the ring! The jaw-dropping sparkler made in white gold features an exceptionally large round ruby red gemstone surrounded by a diamond halo.
12. Anna Camp
Another met-on-set match! News came of Anna Camp’s engagement to co-star Skylar Austin in January 2016. Although the pair have since split, there’s no denying a beautiful ring when we see one! Rumoured to be somewhere between 3 – 4 carat cushion cut champagne diamond with a diamond halo and micro-claw set band in rose gold. We absolutely adore this combo!
13. Pippa Middleton
Thought we’d mix things up a little when listing a Royal engagement ring and give Pippa a little more limelight! This lucky lady received a 3 carat Asscher cut diamond surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds. The ring reportedly set her husband, James Matthews back by £200,000!
14. Kate Grigorieva
The Victoria’s Secret Model shared the exciting news of her engagement to Anton Shunin via Instagram. The post revealed a stunning 5 carat cushion cut Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond with colourless baguette side stones. We are absolutely loving how celebrities are straying away from the traditional and exceptionally large solitaire diamond rings.
