When it comes to diamond rings, no one shops like the Hollywood elite! Luxury and extravagence are the key buzzwords for celebrity engagement rings, providing (sometimes unrealistic) inspiration for brides to be, or wannabe brides to be, across the nation.
Looking for some celebrity inspiration to help you choose your own diamond ring? Here are some of the best celebrity engagement rings of 2019:
When Chris Pratt proposed to his girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger, he used the size of the stone to demonstrate the strength of his love. Katherine’s ring is a classic oversized oval diamond with incredible clarity, set on a thin platinum band which fits perfectly against her slender and delicate fingers.
Oval shaped diamond rings are incredibly popular amongst the Hollywood set, and Katherine isn’t the first celebrity to opt for an oval shaped engagement ring: Blake Liveley famously wears a ring with the same shape.
When J Lo announced her engagement to baseball star Alex Rodriguez, our engagement ring expectations were high and we certainly weren’t disappointed. Jennifer opted for a single-stone ring that featured a massive emerald-cut diamond set in a low key band. The ring is so large that is dominates her whole hand, helping to make her fingers look slenderer than ever.
If you’re looking for diamond rings than J Lo’s engagement ring will be difficult to recreate, although you could get the look with a more affordable stone instead. Alternatively, if size is the most important aspect of your ring, why not find the size you want with a lesser clarity to fit in with your budget?
Katy Perry is quirky, eccentric and unique, and her engagement ring perfectly reflects all of these extravert characteristics. Orlando Bloom chose to propose to Katy with an oversized ruby and diamond ring in the shape of a flower. It features a large oval ruby at its centre, with nine smaller diamonds surrounding it to create a petal effect. The stones are set into yellow gold, lending the ring an overall vintage effect.
Although opting for a coloured stone is unusual, Katy isn’t alone in choosing a stone other than a diamond for her engagement ring. Kate Middleton and Heidi Klum both also opted for coloured gemstones to help them really stand out from the crowd.
Hillary Duff’s beautiful ring is serious engagement ring goals. When the songstress became engaged to singer-songwriter Matthew Koma she opted for an elegant and timeless square cut solitaire diamond ring. The stone is set into a white gold solitaire setting, and the stone itself has been cushion cut to ensure it really sparkles and shines.
