The JIC recently published an article about the latest styles and trends from celebrity engagement rings (you can read the full article here). In typical Hollywood fashion, celebs have been going the non-traditional route in many different ways. Let’s take a look at what’s trending and the gorgeous celebrity engagement rings that are breaking the mold.
Fancy Shaped Diamonds
Remember, you can never go wrong with a Round – but you can always go with something else! We’ve seen a lot of unique diamond shapes this year. Both Emerald cut and Cushion cut have been really popular with celebrities. There’s also the specially cut Emerald diamond Brad gave to Angelina, as well this 4 ct Ashoka cut diamond given to Reese Witherspoon.
Fancy shapes are definitely in right now. The good news is they’re also significantly less expensive than round diamonds right now!
We’ve also seen a lot vintage-inspired engagement rings over the last year. What’s old is new again, and the latest vintage styles are quite exquisite.
The ring Liam Hemsworth gave Miley features a 3.5 ct cushion cut in an 18K yellow gold band with carved diamond floral motifs. The diamond is an antique cushion that was hand-cut in the late 1800’s; talk about one-of-a-kind! Click here to see one of our most popular vintage rings from the Niki J collection.
While we all appreciate the white sparkle of a well cut diamond, a little color can easily make your ring stand out from the rest. Jessica Simpson’s engagement ring from Neil Lane holds an oval ruby flanked by two pear shaped diamonds.
Even if you can’t commit to one color for your center stone, colored diamond or gemstone accents can look beautiful in many rings styles. Popular accent stones include blue diamonds, black diamonds, rubies and sapphires. Here’s one of our rings with princess cut blue sapphire accents in the engagement ring and wedding band.
Remember, even though celebrity engagement rings usually cost more than the average house, it’s possible to get the same look for a fraction of the price. At Precieux Art Jewelers we have the ability to custom design any type of engagement ring – at half the nationally advertised price. Check us out at the TheDiamondStore.com.
