CELEBRITY ENGAGEMENT NEWS: A FIRST LOOK AT MIRANDA KERR’S STUNNING NEW DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING
Since her separation from Orlando Bloom in 2013, Miranda Kerr’s love life has been much disputed over social media. But after much speculation over her recent relationship with the 26 year old tech mogul and Snapchat CEO, Evan Spiegel, the Victoria’s Secret Angel has announced her engagement over Instagram yesterday.
Having met in 2014 at a Louis Vuitton dinner in NYC, they made their debut appearance in June 2015, and after a year of dating it seems to have gotten serious between the two. According to Forbes, the self-made billionaire Evan is reportedly worth approximately $2.1 billion dollars and with this in mind he certainly didn’t have to worry about pushing the boat out when it came down to Miranda’s engagement ring.
Opting to announce their engagement with a very fitting, custom snapchat filter over Instagram, Miranda flashed the huge diamond sparkler to the world. Due to the black and white filter set over the image it’s hard to tell the exact details of the ring, though it’s thought to be a 2.5 carat diamond centre stone flanked by tapered baguette diamonds and set in a plain platinum or white gold band. Reportedly worth within the realms of $75,000 – $100,000, a surprisingly modest choice for the billionaire, the ring is a beautiful fusion of classic and contemporary design.
In comparison to Miranda’s first engagement ring when she was engaged to Orlando Bloom, her new ring is a polar opposite. Sitting at the other end of the spectrum, Miranda originally said ‘Yes!’ to an oval-shaped diamond cluster ring set in a yellow gold band – a far more vintage design than Miranda’s latest acquisition.
At Wakefields we adore both engagement rings, though have fallen head over heels for Evan’s sleek and timeless design choice. The elegant simplicity of the 3 stone tapered baguette design is a fantastic choice for the model who works in an industry where fashion is forever evolving, yet diamond 3 stone rings forever remain in style!
If you too, find Miranda’s ring a delight and would like to find a ring for yourself in a similar style, we stock a variety of engagement rings in store which reflect similar design qualities, so pop in and cast your eyes over our selection!
