The lives of celebrities are so entertaining! We want to know what they’re wearing, what they’re doing, who they’re dating and who’s getting hitched.
Epic proposals and lavish wedding ceremonies are pretty common in the lives of the rich and famous, as well as the pretty price tag that comes with all-important, trend-setting celebrity rings.
While not all celebrity marriages last forever, the celebrity diamond rings themselves definitely will and their design influence on the masses will last some time.
Ready to get inspired? Come dive into celebrity diamond rings and let’s look at some of the most iconic celebrity engagement rings in recent history.
In 2022, musician Machine Gun Kelly asked Hollywood star Megan Fox to marry him by presenting her with a highly unique engagement ring. A highly symbolic piece of jewellery, the stars engagement ring showcases both their birthstones – a pear-shaped diamond for his own and a pear-shaped emerald stone for his beloved.
In his words, ‘the pear-shaped stones are set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love.’
Undeniably unusual yet awe-inspiring the same, the two pear-shaped gems weigh an estimated 6 carats, accompanied in 18-carat white gold pavé setting with colourless, natural diamonds.
Legendary Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker got down on one knee, surrounded by red roses and a setting sun, and proposed to his socialite sweetheart, Kourtney Kardashian in 2021.
He chose an opulent oval-cut diamond on a petite diamond band. The incredibly large stone is estimated to be 12 carats. Shockingly, the eldest Kardashian sister admitted to accidentally stepping on and breaking the diamond ring just days after the romantic proposal. Thankfully, it has since been repaired!
In 2020, Dalton Gomez proposed to popstar Ariana Grande with a sentiment inspired, one-of-a-kind celebrity engagement ring.
Eagle-eyed fans of the popstar were quick to point out the ring’s similarities to a pearl ring Ariana’s grandmother gifted her. The pearl came from her late grandpa’s tie pin.
Unfortunately, ‘til death do us part was not meant to be for this duo, but the popularity of this avant-garde, unique engagement ring style is still influencing engagement ring trends.
American socialite celebrated more than her 40th birthday in 2021. She said yes to her businessman beau, Carter Reum, who asked for her hand in marriage with a bespoke engagement ring fittingly called ‘Paris.’
This beautiful celebrity engagement ring featured a 10 to 20-carat emerald cut centre stone, flanked by two shield-cut diamonds. Small pave diamonds surround the centre diamond, and feature on the prongs and the base. The end result brings the bling factor without compromising on the overall classy, chic design.
One of the most beautifully feminine celebrity engagement rings in recent history belongs to actress Blake Lively. The stars engagement ring features a large pink, oval-cut centre stone flanked by tiny pave diamonds along a fine, 14-carat rose gold band.
It’s definitely a show-stopping piece of jewellery and pink diamonds are among the rarest stones in the world. Ryan Reynolds definitely picked a special ring for his special lady!
A decade ago, Kim Kardashian said yes to a showstopping sparkler presented by her ex-beau, Kanye West. This custom diamond ring was a stunning oval cushion-cut creation, complete with a 15-carat diamond. The diamond itself is flawless with famous engagement rings designer Lorraine Schwartz calling the cut ‘perfect.’ Flawless entails a diamond that has no visible inclusions, and its D colour stone indicates an exceptionally clear diamond.
The stone itself is very large as is the price tag of an estimated $3 million, (and in today’s time, likely higher).
In 2016, Kanye West decided one engagement ring wasn’t enough, so he gifted Kim another celebrity engagement ring, this one being an eloquent, 20-carat emerald-cut diamond ring to add to her high-end jewellery collection.
Kim and Kanye split in 2021 after seven years of marriage, with their divorce finalized in November 2022. They share four children — daughters North and Chicago, and sons Saint and Psalm.
Can you believe Jenny from the block has been engaged six times? The songstress rekindled her relationship with A-list actor, Ben Affleck in 2021 after 17 years apart.
In 2002, Affleck proposed with a 6.10 carat radiant-cut pink diamond which sparked the trend and increase in demand of pink diamonds.
More recently, in 2022, Affleck proposed again but this time around with a fancy, green diamond engagement ring.
Will Lopez’ sparkler spark another demand and trend for unique celebrity engagement rings and will this engagement last?
In 2010, Prince William proposed to his long-term love, Kate Middleton with an awe-inspiring, unique engagement ring. Highlighting sweet sentimentality (the ring was once owned by William’s late mother, Princess Diana), the ring features a 12-carat blue sapphire centre stone accompanied by a halo of 14 diamonds.
Kate Middleton, now the Princess of Wales, has continuously influenced style trends since being thrust into the public eye in the early 2000s. With this in mind, it’s not surprising a 2020 survey by the Natural Diamond Council saw Kate Middleton’s engagement ring considered still, the world’s most popular engagement band.
The ever-elegant Amal Clooney accepted a 7-carat emerald-cut sparkler from her handsome beau, George Clooney in 2014. As a well-respected human rights lawyer, an ethically mined ring was a must. The timeless take on the emerald-cut was made more magnificent with two tapered baguettes at the sides of this celebrity engagement ring.
You can make your take on Amal Clooney’s elegant celebrity engagement ring with your very own 10.07 carat Emerald Cut Loose Diamond. All of our diamonds are ethically sourced for your added peace of mind.
