Classic Engagement Ring
Victoria’s Secret Angel, Karlie Kloss, was certainly not shy in announcing her engagement to the social media world. To match the classic beauty of his soon-to-be bride, Josh Kushner chose the perfect stone for Karlie: a cushion cut diamond. The classic shape diamond is complemented by a delicate pave set diamond band, further accentuating the sizeable rock. The cushion cut was developed around a century before the round brilliant cut, and carries with it an enviable antique charm. Lucky Karlie! The excited star wasted no time in FaceTiming her celeb pals, sharing screenshots of her showing the ring to the likes of Serena Williams and Princess Beatrice - and we don't blame her!
Pear Diamond Engagement Ring
Whilst round brilliant cut diamonds are the most popular engagement ring diamond shape, celeb engagement rings are rarely traditional. If you’re after an alternative engagement ring, a pear shape diamond is a great choice. Ariana Grande shocked fans after debuting her pear beauty following a month of dating Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson. Rather sweetly, Pete confirmed the engagement rumours by stating ‘I feel like I won a contest.’ Ariana’s pear halo engagement ring is a chic alternative to the ever popular round scallop halo, like Queensmith’s Classic Oberon.
Trilogy Engagement Ring vs. 'The Duo'
Emily Ratajkowski has long been a cut above the rest when it comes to style. Her personally-designed engagement ring is no exception to Em Rata’s exquisite contemporary taste, as she rejected tradition and opted for a sleek, unusual engagement ring. We’ve all heard of the trilogy engagement ring, but how about the two-stone ring? Whilst Emily hasn’t spoken out about her engagement ring, other than to say her and husband Sebastian Bear-McClard designed it together, we think the contrasting square diamond and pear shape could be representative of each half of the couple. A match made in heaven. Is this the new trinity engagement ring?
Emma Louise Connolly
Vintage Inspired Engagement ring
Made in Chelsea star Oliver Proudlock proposed to long-term girlfriend and model, Emma Louise Connolly while on a romantic trip to Sweden, this August. Using diamonds from his Grandmother’s collection, Proudlock designed a bespoke engagement ring that’s anything but subtle. The colourful number features a green and black diamond halo with gorgeous Art Deco appeal, surrounding a large old mine cut diamond. Antique engagement rings are a romantic idea, but in reality can prove to be aged, poorly made and too delicate to wear. Proudlock’s decision to recreated a vintage inspired engagement ring is genius - a personal, characterful and totally individual gesture. A great way to achieve an Art Deco look is with geometric shapes - check out the Novak halo engagement ring, using an emerald cut centre diamond.
Yellow Diamond Engagement Ring
After 19 years of marriage to David, Victoria Beckham has certainly built up a vast collection of amazing engagement rings. From sizeable diamonds to sapphire engagement rings, she’s got it all. And what’s the latest sparkler to join the elite crew? A cushion cut yellow diamond. The fashion mogul may just about have a ring to match every outfit, and what better to wear with a pretty pastel ensemble? The yellow number with pave set halo and diamond band, her 14th engagement ring, might just be our favourite yet. Get the cushion halo look with the fire and life of a round brillaint diamond - the Classic Kelly can be created with a yellow centre diamond (because who doesn’t want to be just like Posh?).
Oval Diamond Engagement Ring
After years of friendship and on-and-off dating, Justin Bieber popped the question to Hailey Baldwin this Summer. In 2012, Baldwin tweeted ‘If my ring isn’t as big as Blake Lively’s, I don’t want to get married.’ The tongue-in-cheek moment was taken pretty seriously by Justin, who basically created a Blake Lively engagement ring replica, featuring a hefty oval diamond and delicate band. Bieber proposed to the model while on holiday in the Bahamas. Shortly after, Justin confirmed their engagement with a lengthy post on Instagram, concluding ‘you are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn't want to spend it with anybody else.’ Bieber reportedly chose an oval shape diamond to enhance Baldwin’s elegant hands. If a dainty diamond band and striking oval diamond takes your fancy, check out the Oval Tierney Pavé and Oval Tierney Solitaire- both super flattering styles.
