DOUBLE TAKE – FAMOUS CELEBRITY’S ENGAGEMENT RINGS VS. WAKEFIELDS ENGAGEMENT RINGS

DOUBLE TAKE – FAMOUS CELEBRITY’S ENGAGEMENT RINGS VS. WAKEFIELDS ENGAGEMENT RINGS

Finding the perfect engagement ring is no easy feat, and for many the thought alone of searching for ‘the one’ can be extremely daunting – your engagement ring will symbolise your eternal love, commitment and the special connection the two of you share together so it’s important to conduct some sneaky research on your partner’s vision and the current styles in vogue.

Although fashion designers are the driving force behind the constant changing of trends throughout the seasons, it’s their iconic ambassadors who allow the styles to gain momentum across the globe. So it’s no wonder that this pattern extends through to the jewellery world too. For celebrity engagements in particular, the world becomes infatuated with each fine detail of the proposal, from the surprise, location and of course – the ring.

It’s this obsession and thirst for copying trends that has fuelled the desire to own the same jewellery as our famous counterparts. However with the media reporting every movement our favourite celebrities make, it’s no surprise that an element of competition has arisen between the stars. Elaborate proposals and extravagant rings have set the bar to impress not only their loved ones but the rest of the world in turn.

For most of us though, the possibility of being able to afford a ring worth a few million in this lifetime is an unrealistic fantasy, but that doesn’t mean we’ve been priced out of the market by the elite. There’s an array of gorgeously, striking replicas available online to purchase, so that you can share a piece of the magic your much-loved celebrity enjoyed, for a fraction of the price they paid. We’ve selected a few of the most infamous, timeless rings the world fell in love with.

1. Kate Middleton & Prince William

Kate Middleton took the world by storm in November 2010, when Prince William announced their engagement. Both royalists and patriots alike were overwhelmed with joy to hear the exciting news from the happy couple. From this point onwards, Kate has become somewhat of an icon with her look exuding confident, elegance, style and class; a refreshing update for the royal family, the likes of which hadn’t been seen since William’s mother Princess Diana. The future King of England presented Kate with an incredibly sentimental piece of jewellery, a striking blue sapphire ring which had belonged to his late mother. The ring was estimated to be worth £28,000 when purchased in 1981, but is now valued at £300,000. Featuring a 12-carat sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds, the ring is undoubtedly an outstanding, timeless piece that’s design marries harmoniously with the quiet, confidence that Kate consistently emanates.

2. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

The Kardashian family are dominating the media, minds and hearts of people across the globe, in particular the power-couple Kim and Kanye, whose extravagant proposal to Kim on her birthday in October 2013 has since been broadcast to the world via the family’s hit TV show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians.’ Not one to falter on fine details, Kanye whisked Kim away to San Francisco’s AT&T Park and arranged for a full orchestra to play Kim’s favourite song whilst he made his proposal, with their family and friends watching alongside. However, the ring he presented to her could not be outshone by the emotional magic and surprise of the moment. Known for his impeccable taste and sense of style, Kanye helped to design the flawless, cushion cut, 15-carat diamond ring from Lorraine Schwartz, said to be worth upwards of $1.6 million. The stunning piece fits perfectly with the couple’s lavish lifestyle through its undeniable beauty and contemporary design.

Cost: £8,595.00

3. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

After two highly successful acting careers, seven years and six children firmly under their belts, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were engaged in April 2012. The down to earth, power couple married two years later in August 2014 with a very quiet and elegant ceremony (typical of the pair who prefer to keep their private life away from the media.) However there was nothing quiet about the incredibly striking, bespoke engagement ring, designed by Robert Procup for Angelina. The 16-carat, emerald cut diamond ring set on a band of yellow gold is estimated to be worth around $3.8 million. After such a long and successful time together, it seems only fitting that the ring would reflect and unite the two perfectly.

Cost: £3,295.00

4. George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin

Infamously gorgeous bachelor, George Clooney, finally settled down with human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin in early May 2014. After a string of notably attractive girlfriends, George was reportedly hypnotised by Amal’s beauty, intelligence and sophistication. So it seems only fitting that he would choose a ring which truly encapsulates the pair’s classically, elegant allure and charisma. Selecting a 7-carat, emerald cut diamond engagement ring which is estimated to be worth £415,900, George proved his impeccable taste in jewellery is equal to his own personal style.

Amal Ring

Worth: £415,900.00

Right: Platinum Four Claw Emerald Cut Diamond Ring

Cost: £3,495.00

5. Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher

Childhood sweethearts and co-stars, Mila & Ashton coyly announced their engagement in February 2014. Preferring to keep their private lives out of the spotlight the pair had been slow to comment on the developments in their relationship. However there was nothing bashful about the incredible engagement ring Ashton presented to Mila, the gorgeous piece of jewellery is a very traditional, round-cut diamond mounted on a platinum band. Estimated to be worth at upwards of $250,000, the classic and timeless design of the ring runs parallel with the couples grounded and down to earth personalities – a stunning example of ‘less is more.’
