As a society, we look to celebrities and designers to showcase upcoming fashion and beauty trends. Jewelry and engagement rings are no different! This week, I’ve rounded up some of the most beautiful engagement rings from the past few months. Although these women and their soon-to-be hubby clearly have a huge budget on diamonds, I thought it would be fun to showcase some of the elite engagement rings out there. Here are 5 engagement rings of the rich and famous in 2021! *All images found online from various sources*
Where are my Bachelor and Bachelorette fans!? Kaitlyn, who got engaged to fiancé Jason Tartick on May 10, showed off her massive diamond ring via Instagram with the caption reading “Don’t pinch me.” This beauty is a 5.09-carat ring, that features an oval stone. The 4-prong band looks as though it may also have delicate diamonds along the sides as well. Talk about classic and timeless.
Maria is a tennis pro, which is why I’m not surprised her future husband chose an emerald-cut diamond ring! Bezel-set diamond engagement rings are a fantastic choice for those that are very active, or athletes like Maria, as they are incredibly secure and the wearer doesn’t have to worry about prongs getting stuck on loose clothing or prongs coming loose if worn during physical activities. After some research, I’ve found out that this ring is a 7-carat emerald-shaped diamond that is bezel-set in yellow gold. Bezel-set engagement rings are one of the more modern cuts, with a clean, minimalistic look as well as a bit vintage in feel.
I don’t know about you, but I am a secret Real Housewives fan. Porsha of Real Housewives of Atlanta just got engaged on May 10th after just one month of dating! When you know, you know? This show-stopping engagement ring looks as though it could be 10 to 15-carats, an emerald cut, set in a diamond white gold (or platinum) band. As for the price tag? Depending on quality, it could cost approximately $500,000 to $1.25 million!
If you’re new here, you should know I love a super unique ring, and Ariana Grande’s engagement ring speaks to me. The unusual shapes and angles are so stunning, and I adore the use of a pearl for such a statement. I recently read an exclusive interview with E! News, where her engagement ring jeweler Jack Solow shared how the beautiful piece came together.
"Ariana’s fiance was involved in every step of the selection process through FaceTime and Zoom since he was on the west coast and I was here in my office in New York. He was very, very specific about what he wanted," Solow told E! News. "He had very strong feelings about how he wanted this to look, a contemporary kind of way. It was his idea to do the diamond on an angle and he said to me we had to incorporate a pearl into the finished piece because it is very sentimentally special, the element of a pearl is very, very sentimentally special to Ariana. He wanted to include that in the ring.”
The pear shape is still in style, and I for one am so happy about it! While emerald and solitaire cut are still some of my faves, I do love the romantic feeling of a pear-shaped diamond. Bella’s beautiful ring appears to feature a 3.5- to 4-carat pear-shaped diamond surrounded by a diamond halo and set on a white gold or platinum diamond-adorned band.
