With Emerald being the official birthstone for the month of May, we thought we’d treat you all to some of the sparkliest designs sported by some of our favourite stars. From statement red carpet embellishments to romantic engagements, Emerald’s versatility never fails to take our breath away.
Emerald, though an untraditional choice for an engagement ring due to the stone’s softness, is still a popular choice with the stars who were searching for an alternative to conventional diamond engagement rings – check out the size of these rocks below!
Bringing out the colour in her eyes, Olivia Wilde’s engagement ring, picked out for her by partner, Jason Sudeikis was the perfect choice. The ring features a central diamond surrounded by a halo of tiny emeralds, which catch the light as Olivia moves her hand. ‘All they know is that it went through Paris around 1921,’ Olivia told Brides of vintage rock. ‘I love imagining the story of this ring. Who had it? It’s a bit of an aqua emerald, not a deep dark green. Jason said it reminded him of my eyes, which is very sweet.’
Set in a textured, hand-forged, yellow-gold setting, the ring’s four-carat emerald – sourced from Colombia – is flawless in colour and flanked by two diamonds. Berry’s husband Olivier Martinez commissioned the one of a kind piece from his Paris neighbour, jewellery Robert Mazlo. The ring reportedly contains codes and symbols in lieu of an inscription, which only its wearer can understand.
She said yes! Hilary Swank is engaged to former professional tennis player Ruben Torres. The now financial advisor popped the question to his love with a stunning emerald-cut emerald ring while on a hike. The actress shared the exciting news on her Instagram writing, ‘Went on a hike and this happened! I am so happy to share with you all this exciting and incredible news…the engagement to my dear Ruben!’
A stunning pear-cut emerald ring, flanked by two smaller diamonds on either side and smaller pavé diamonds outlining the stones on the band, Zoe’s striking and unusual engagement ring is simply captivating. According to jewellery designer, Martin Katz, the stone is a cabochon cut and looks to be eight to 10 carats.
