Planning to propose? Be inspired by the engagement ring trends started by your partner’s favorite celebrity!
While jewelry trends come and go, an engagement ring should be timeless, classic, and tailored to your special someone’s tastes. One surefire way to get some inspiration is by looking at engagement ring trends started by celebrities over the years. It doesn’t mean you need an A-lister’s budget, but it will give you an idea of what shapes stand the test of time.
A relatively new trend, celebrities like Arianna Grande and Emma Stone have showcased their pearl-adorned engagement rings on Instagram. Elegant pearls are not only a sustainable option, but they have many symbolic meanings too. In Western cultures, the pearl has astrological associations with the planet Venus, as like pearls, the goddess of love came from the sea. Others believe that, because of their luster, shape, and watery association, pearls are tears of the gods.
Rectangular emerald-cut gemstones are certainly a popular choice for the chic modern-day woman, but this style has actually been around since the 16th century. Still, this show-stopping style remains one of the most sought-after rings year after year. Celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Demi Lovato, and Jennifer Lopez are rocking emerald-cut rings, while Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor (whose 33-carat rock was a gift from Richard Burton) were notable fans.
Year after year, Blake Lively’s 12-carat oval-cut light pink diamond on a micro-pavé rose gold band tops the list of most-searched-for celebrity engagement rings. For a good reason, it truly is a treasure to marvel at with its estimated $2 million price tag. Other celebrities who’ve said yes to oval-cut sparklers are models Hailey Bieber and Jasmine Tookes, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union, and Sofia Vergara.
What do Penelope Cruz, Mary-Kate Olsen, Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Kravitz, and Olivia Wilde have in common? Yes, they all have phenomenal red carpet style, but they also all opted for vintage engagement rings. From Olsen’s old school Cartier number to Johansson’s art deco stunner, a pre-loved ring is a surefire way to stand out from the crowd. Bonus point: who doesn’t love jewelry that comes with a story? Indeed, rumor has it that Kravitz found her ring, from sought-after antique vendor The One I Love, on Instagram!
When the official engagement portrait of Kate Middleton and Prince William was released, it sparked a frenzy for sapphire rings. (In a sweet touch, Middleton's was initially Princess Diana's!) Other celebrities who've fallen in love with a sapphire rock's distinctive blue hue include Jessica Biel, Katherine Heigl, Elizabeth Hurley, and Reese Witherspoon.
