Celebrity engagement rings are stunning, both in terms of their quality and price. When money is no object, the world’s leading jewellers can provide a selection of awe-inspiring statement-pieces from their amazing collections. They inspire trends, as jewellers know that fans who do have a spending limit will want to mimic their idols.
So who do you think has the best celebrity engagement ring?
Cheryl Cole now owns two engagement rings. The latest offering from Ashley Cole is a square-cut diamond ring costing £160,000. This was given to symbolise a fresh start for the couple and it replaced the original heart-shaped ring, which cost a mere £100,000.
Jennifer Garner is the proud owner of a $500,000 4.5-carat diamond engagement ring designed by Harry Winston, ‘Jeweller to the Stars’.
Tom Cruise proposed to Katie Holmes at the Eiffel Tower and produced a beautiful art deco style diamond ring, which set him back $250,000. The 5-carat oval-shaped diamond is set in a band of platinum and rose gold.
Designed by Lorraine Schwartz, Beyoncé’s $5million emerald-cut solitaire is stunning. The huge 8-carat flawless diamond is set in platinum. The price tag is equally breathtaking!
Wayne’s first offering to Colleen was a £45,000 cushion-cut diamond engagement ring, given to her when she was just 17 years-old. Now, however, she wears a £200,000 oval-shaped diamond as her engagement ring, which was designed by Chopard.
Eva Longoria Parker
Eva Longoria Parker’s dazzling emerald-cut 5-carat diamond ring is set in white gold and has an incredible 248 smaller diamonds inset. It was designed especially for her by Jean Dousset, a French jewellery designer.
An incredible 8.5-carat square-cut diamond ring adorns Jennifer’s hand, which cost a cool $1million.
Designed by Boodle and Dunthorne, Victoria Beckham’s 3-carat marquise-cut diamond ring is flanked by baguette diamonds on each side and set on a gold band.
Seal spent $150,000 on Heidi’s beautiful and unusual yellow diamond engagement ring. The oval cushion-cut diamond is set on a thin band of small yellow pavé diamonds.
Given to her by Shane Warne, Elizabeth Hurley’s huge square sapphire engagement ring is stunning. It has a trillion-cut diamond on each side and is set on a platinum band.
For those people who have a restricted budget it is possible to emulate celebrities when it comes to jewellery. For example, there are many striking costume necklaces on the market at the moment, designed using beautiful glass beads and crystals rather than diamonds.
If you are looking for an engagement ring in particular, you could choose less-expensive white gold instead of platinum. Also, a smaller diamond in a similar setting to a celebrity ring would look great, as the original design of the ring is the key factor that people want to copy, rather than the actual size of the ring.
A personal favourite is Katie Holmes’ art deco style ring, with Heidi Klum’s canary-yellow diamond coming a close second. Which celebrity ring would you choose?
