The Most Talked About Celebrity Engagement Rings Ever
If you are getting ready to propose to your girlfriend and you want a unique engagement ring to give her, why not give her a ring that is inspired by her favorite celebrity? A current trend in celebrity engagement rings is the wearing of rings studded with color diamonds as is the case with Carrie Underwood and Kristen Bell but there are other celebrities such as Kate Middleton who still opt for the traditional white diamond studded engagement ring. Here are some of the most talked about celebrity engagement rings.
Kim Kardashian's Engagement Ring
During the engagement of Kim Kardashian to former basketball player Kris Humphries, Kim sported a 16.5 carat engagement ring that had an emerald stone in the center surrounded by a pair of 2 carat trapezoids that adds up to 20.5 carats altogether. The overall value of this ring was close to two million dollars.
In 2011 Jessica Biel received a beautiful engagement ring from Justin Timberlake and this ring is an 18-carat white gold and black rhodium plated. This ring also has two aquamarines on each side since the aquamarine is Jessica's birthstone.
Prince William did not buy a new ring when he proposed to Kate Middleton; he gave her the same engagement ring that his mother Princess Diana wore. This ring is an 18 carat sapphire and diamond ring and the huge sapphire in the middle of the ring still gives off a nice sparkle even after all these years.
Kate Moss's Vintage Engagement Ring
Another most talked about celebrity engagement ring is Kate Moss's 1920s style engagement ring. It is a diamond ring that is valued at 10,000 in British pounds. The diamond in this ring gives off a beautiful luster. The story behind this engagement ring is that it is inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda Fitzgerald. Kate Moss enjoys F. Scott Fitzgerald's books and her favorite book by him is the Beautiful and the Damned. Moss's fiance Jamie Hince spent months trying to locate the same engagement ring that Zelda wore and he instead had the jeweler create a ring inspired by it.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
John F. Kennedy gave Jacqueline Bouvier only the best engagement ring with a ring that had a 2.88 carat diamond along with a 2.84 carat cut enerald that had tapered baguettes around the ring. The ring had a beautiful deep green color and the jeweler of this ring was Van Cleef and Arpels.
Journalist Romain Dauriac gave Scarlett Johansson a sparkling art deco-style diamond ring with three big diamonds that are enclosed by a rectangular band that has additional diamonds on top of it. This ring is sophisticated and it is a throwback to the glamorous days of Hollywood in the 1930s.
