We LOVE engagement season. Why? Because if you all weren't getting engaged, we wouldn't be tikka-deep in the most extraordinary shaadi details all year long! Our wedding-lovin' hearts couldn't handle waiting for all of your dazzling highlights, so while you're planning your Desi dream wedding, we turned to the expert bridal jewelers at Ritani for some ultra sparkly inspiration! We wanted to find out which of our favorite celebs got engaged this past winter, and what kind of rocks these ladies were now rockin'! From Mariah Carey and Kylie Minogue, to Dianna Agron and our favorite Full House sister, Jodie Sweetin, we're checking out six of the most stunning celebrity-inspired engagement rings we've seen!
We just love the details of this emerald cut, halo ring inspired by the rock that British actor, Joshua Sasse, proposed to his Rani, Kylie Minogue, with! The French-set diamonds around the 18kt band are spectacular on their own, but with the addition of a dazzling stone like this in the center, any bride-to-be would have a hard time saying no!
Our favorite cheerleader to Gleek over, Dianna Agron, turned heads this past February at London Fashion Week, when she turned up sporting what looked like a rose cut diamond in a yellow gold bezel setting. The media was abuzz when news got out that her then-boyfriend, Winston Marshall of the band Mumford and Sons, had popped the question and the gorgeous actress said yes! Her contemporary twist on a solitaire classic is simply out of this world!
Mimi is moving on, Maharanis! She and boyfriend, James Packer, are making plans to get hitched! The Australian businessman sealed the deal with a 35kt, emerald cut diamond, accompanied by two baguette diamonds, similar to this incredibly sparkly piece from Ritani. The tapered design of the surrounding baguettes gives this classic design an extra sleek twist, and you can never go wrong with a platinum band!
Full House, and now Fuller House, star Jodie Sweetin, recently took to Instagram to share her exciting engagement news with a dazzling post featuring her brand new cushion cut creation similar to this amazing ring from Ritani! The halo setting and "V" band are brilliant and bold, and we couldn't be more excited for the middle Tanner sister to be rockin' this ultra shiny new accessory!
The fabulously fit and beautiful Jillian Michaels had viewers of her show extra excited at the season finale when she asked her long-time girlfriend, Heidi Rhoades, to marry her, and caught all of our attention with the two phenomenal diamond bands she did it with! Michael's presented both herself and Rhoades with a ring each, and the fitness guru chose an impressive eternity band made of platinum and 17 half-cut emerald diamonds! For Heidi, she got a 18kt white gold eternity band (like the one below) to go with a diamond ring she had previously given her! I mean, how perfect! Congrats, ladies!
Ritani diamonds are all certified and ethically-sourced, and we love that their collections are shoppable online as well as at a number of retailers across the nation. They give you the option to customize your own engagement ring — we're thinking a mix between Kylie's and Diana's right now! — and who doesn't love being able to select their own engagement ring setting, their preference between cuts (I adore an emerald or cushion cut myself, but will always love a classic like the round cut!) color, clarity and carat weight? The best part is they'll even ship your custom creation to one of their retail partners where you can check it out up close and try it on — with no obligation to buy it! Makes shopping for your perfect ring with your personal specifications a breeze! Head to Ritani.com to start building your perfect wedding bling!
Our eyes will be twinkling from these blingin' details all weekend!
