The search for the perfect diamond can be a tough one, especially with the knowledge that the ring is going to adorn your finger for the rest of your life! And yes I hear you, we we probably shouldn’t use celebrity engagement rings as a general benchmark for the type or size of engagement ring we’d like (depression central!) but it can be useful to take some inspiration and see what styles other people are choosing.
There are so many styles of engagement rings to choose from and my personal preference can change from time to time but every now and then I come across a complete gem (pardon the pun!). I almost cried when I saw how beautiful Blake Livelys ring was (never mind the tears over the fact that she had also nabbed Ryan Reynolds as her husband). For me this ring is amazing and if I had all the money in the world (or if my other half was rolling in it) this would be my ring of choice – a girl can dream eh?
Often, a particular style we like doesn’t end up being the ultimate ring we choose. Lots of factors like what suits our hand (I have small hands so lots of styles look awful on me), the band, the type of stone you want and the budget all need to be considered. It’s important to plan ahead and it can help to have an idea of style before you go shopping. Many jewellers are open to negotiate on price these days too so don’t be afraid to haggle and you could nab yourself a bargain.
Until then, I’ll be lusting after some of these beautiful celebrity engagement rings.
