Celebrity engagement ring inspirations
Who doesn’t love a romantic love story? Especially when the protagonists are famous celebrities we love and admire. Celebrity romances are aplenty, but there is something special when they take the next step and decide to get married to their beloved. Our fascination also extends to the proposal and to the engagement ring of course. An engagement ring symbolizes the culmination of a love story, where boy meets girl, they fall madly in love and then decide to make a commitment to each other, for the rest of their lives. It gives hope for personal happiness and makes us dream of our own happily-ever-after. If you’re about to be engaged or dream of your own romantic wedding proposal, here are some celebrity engagement rings to inspire you.
One of the most famous exports from Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra made big news in 2018 when she announced her engagement to her now husband, Nick Jonas. The couple’s relationship was already the buzz of the town and everybody was very curious about the engagement ring that sealed the deal. Priyanka’s engagement ring features a classic cushion cut diamond, set in a popular three-stone setting on a platinum band. The central stone is an impressive four carat diamond set on a plain platinum band, with a smaller tapered baguette diamond, on each side. This is a very classic design, with a setting that highlights the main solitaire beautifully. We also love the symbolic meaning behind a three-stone engagement ring, which symbolizes a couple’s past, present, and future.

Former actress Meghan Markle broke the internet when she announced her engagement to Prince Harry from the British royal family. The couple got engaged in late 2017 and the engagement ring was especially designed by Prince Harry himself. Like her friend Priyanka Chopra’s engagement ring, Meghan Markle’s ring also features a central cushion cut diamond, in a three-stone setting. The central solitaire is about five carats and was sourced from Botswana, which Meghan said is a “special” place to her and Harry. The diamonds on either side also have special prominence in their own regard. This is because they are from Princess Diana’s personal collection, which was Prince Harry’s way of paying homage to his late mother. The ring features a solid yellow gold band which he chose ‘because it’s her favourite’ (sic). This engagement ring is simple and understated, but we love that it has a lot of sentimental value built into it, making it truly fit for a princess.

Actress Asin Thottumkal is married to the owner of Micromax, Rahul Sharma. When he proposed, he chose to do it with a very grand engagement ring in 2016. The ring featured a very large round cut, twenty-carat solitaire, which was imported from Belgium. Set in a prong setting on a platinum band, the solitaire was also customized with the couple’s initials ‘AR’ engraved on it, giving it that extra special personal touch. This ring is eye-catchingly large and is the ultimate luxury statement in engagement rings.

When Prince William, the future king of England, proposed to his would-be queen, Kate Middleton, he chose to do it with a family heirloom. These college sweethearts got engaged in 2010 with the same ring worn by his mother Princess Diana, when she got engaged to his father, Prince Charles. This particular engagement ring is unique as the central stone is a twelve-carat oval sapphire. The setting of this ring highlights the intense blue colour of the central sapphire by having fourteen diamonds circling it. Another interesting fact about this ring is that after Princess Diana died, both her sons chose one keepsake. Prince William chose her Cartier watch and his younger brother Harry picked this sapphire engagement ring. However, the brothers agreed that their mother’s ring would go to the brother who got engaged first, which is why it now graces Kate Middleton’s hand. This remarkable engagement ring is truly one of a kind.

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli were married in 2018 and they exchanged engagement rings a few days before the wedding ceremony. Anushka’s ring features a special diamond solitaire in a halo setting on gold, diamond pave band. The central rock is circled by a ring of smaller diamonds which also continues onto the band as well. Estimated to be around 3 carats, the solitaire is special as it reflects light in different and unique ways, when seen from different angles. Virat Kohli is rumoured to have spent three months sourcing the perfect ring and ultimately choosing an Austrian jewellery designer to create this one-of-a-kind creation.
