8 Non Traditional Celebrity Engagement Rings
Click through to see all 8 unconventional sparklers, from Kate Middleton’s sapphire rock to Scarlett Johansson’s Art Deco ring.
Scarlett Johansson’s fiance French journalist Romain Dauriac has unique taste! The dazzling Art Deco sparkler created a stir at the Venice International Film Festival, and rightly so-it features three round diamonds surrounded by a vintage rectangular setting with more diamonds.
Halle Berry’s fiancé Olivier Martinez popped the question with a diamond and emerald Robert Mazlo engagement ring.
Jessica Simpson – Eric Johnson gave Jessica Simpson a 5-carat ruby ring in honor of her July birthday. “The ruby design for Jessica was perfection,” says Neil Lane, the celebrity jeweler behind Simpson’s engagement ring. “It’s a classic design with a twist because the side stones are pear-shaped.”
Angelina Jolie – Angelina Jolie’s 10-carat diamond is a one-of-a-kind cut thanks to Brad Pitt. “Brad had a specific vision for this ring,” Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop said in a statement. “He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so Robert was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suit Angelina’s hand.”
Kate Middleton – As a sweetly romantic and commemorative gesture, Prince William presented Kate Middleton with his mother’s Garrard Jewelers sapphire-and-diamond ring. He explained his decision, saying, “It’s very special to me, Kate’s very special to me as well, I thought it only right to put the two together.” The 18-carat oval sapphire is surrounded by 14 diamonds and set in 18-karat white gold.
Mariah Carey – The 10.02-carat emerald-cut diamond on Mariah Carey’s Jacob Arabo engagement ring is in her preferred hue: pink.
Carrie Underwood – Hockey player Mike Fisher asked for Carrie Underwood’s hand in marriage with a yellow diamond ring by Jonathon Arndt.
Reese Witherspoon – Jim Toth popped the question to Reese Witherspoon with a rare Ashoka-cut diamond. The 4-carat ring, a custom-design by the William Goldberg Diamond Corporation, is set on a pave diamond-and-platinum band. The unique cut also has 62 displayed facets and rounded corners to make it extra sparkly.
