Didn't we love the 'Rachel' look from the cut classic 'Friends'? Or let's say the styling tips from Gwyneth Paltrow- how much we adored the way she carried off herself with élan! Indeed, we look for celeb inspiration in almost every step we take.
Naturally, engagement rings are important when we talk about Hollywood inspiration. While there's no doubt we can't replicate the statement pieces the 'bank-breaking carat sizes' that celebrities flash on their fingers - but there's no stopping taking cues. Here are a few such celebrities whose engagement rings have been the talk of the town.
Jolie's custom-designed stunning ring was a thing to watch out for. It was all thanks to jeweler Robert Procop. Brad gave Angelina this 7-carat emerald-shaped diamond right at the center ring, with a few other smaller emeralds forming a ribbed design. This proposal came almost after seven years of dating and then raising adorable kids. The latter worked almost a year to put things into place perfectly!
Even though the diamond is 7 carats, the ring's overall weight is about 16 carats. If you take the idea from Jolie's custom-made work, it won't be late that you will have something similar. You can always opt for a varied look or simply a split shank setting.
Zoe's engagement ring made of precious emerald is even greener than Gamora, the character she played in Guardians of the Galaxy. The emerald inside was s shaped like a pear. It was a perfect fit inside the cabochon cut at the center of the ring. At the sides were a halo-like appearance of micro diamonds.
Not many would know this tiny emerald can have a trillion cut diamonds on either of the two sides at the pave domains along the shank. If Saldana's choice appealed to you, definitely opt for a pear-shaped stone. But if the emerald center stone is a little too old-fashioned for you, stick to the diamond at the center and have emeralds as a pave band.
Monaco-based Prince Rainier III proposed to Grace Kelly, one of the finest actresses of her time, with a ring meant for a princess. The emerald diamond weighing 10.47 carats and decked by two baguette diamonds was a true spectacle! In one of her movies- 'High Society,' Kelly, who was about to play the role of socialite Tracy Lord wore the same huge ring. After all, there was something royal about it. Especially in a 'classic baguette setting' and an emerald-cut diamond. This look eventually became quite popular, thank Harry Winston and Tiffany.
Much like the 'timeless' suit and tie that Justin Timberlake wore, the 'vintage-inspired ring' that he came up with to propose to his partner was also a real gem! The center of the ring was quite attractive. And not to forget the six-carat diamond along with two aquamarine side stones 'Biel' birthstone,' that came with the ring.
The best thing about the ring was how the vintage flair was visible with the double halo add-on around the center stone. To get your look right wearing this, start by opting for a cushion-cut diamond. You can keep it inside the Art Deco halo setting. This is one of the most classic ones of the 1930s that imparts a Hollywood-like feel. Now you can customize it with side stones made of the birthstone of your fiancée and see her reaction right away.
Elizabeth Taylor was one of the most beautiful women to have ever walked on the surface of the earth. She tied the knot eight times with seven different men. Michael Wilding, her second husband, offered a cabochon sapphire ring to her. Well, men worldwide gave her a series of engagement rings, but only a few were breathtaking.
After her demise, the ring was up for auction to support medical research. Many were willing to contribute to the noble cause. Let's not forget that her 29.4 emerald cut ring was from Mike Todd, her husband. But it was Richard Burton who gave her the Krupp Diamond engagement ring, and it had a selling price of $8.8 million at the auction.
The engagement rings once worn by Hollywood's biggest stars are still unmatched in many aspects. However, if you are eager to get that Elizabeth Taylor oomph, you can go for an Asscher Cut Diamond engagement ring. But remember, it would set you back for $950 to $1400 (for a 0.50-carat diamond ring). So, which of these rings would make you say a "yes," instantly? Let us know in the comments section.
