CELEBRITY ENGAGEMENT RINGS – SCARLETT JOHANSSON’S STUNNING 11 CARAT DIAMOND RING!
Scarlett Johansson has never been one to confirm to society’s norms, always choosing to stand out from the crowd, and her gorgeous new diamond ring does exactly that!
The actress announced her engagement to Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost this past May, but an engagement ring was never spotted on Scarlett’s hand. The couple are known for keeping their private life low key, so it was no surprise to fans.
However this week at Comic-Con where Scarlett appeared on a Marvel panel following her roles in The Avengers, Captain America and Iron Man films, she stole all of the attention with a huge diamond ring adorning her hand.
The ring is a giant 11 carat diamond ring in a really unconventional setting. In the close up of Scarlett’s hand it appears to be a pear cut, but in the jeweller’s post on Instagram the ring (or its doppelganger) looks to be more of an oval cut. The stone is a fancy light brown hue and estimated to be priced over $400,000!
It’s unusual to see such a contemporary design as an engagement ring, we usually see this sort of ring worn exclusively for red carpet events, but this is a wonderful example of Scarlett’s unique sense of style.
Sources say the stone is a Type IIA, which if true means it has the rarest chemical structure type for a diamond. This highly coveted type has no nitrogen impurities, giving it a spectacular clarity – other famous large diamonds like the Cullinan and Koh-i-Noor were also Type IIA.
Though we’d find it difficult to stock anything that comes close to Scarlett’s engagement ring, we do have a beautiful selection of traditional and contemporary diamond rings available at Wakefields Jewellers.
