Let’s face it. Many of us can be a bit obsessed with the lives of celebrities. We want to know who they’re dating, when they are pregnant, when they get engaged, and everything else about their lives. It’s always fun to see our favorite star’s elaborate engagement rings and even take some inspiration from their rings. Here’s a look at the engagement rings of nine celebrities who got engaged or married in 2018.
In the celebrity world, Paris Hilton has done a bit of everything: acting, modeling, singing, and simply being a socialite and heiress. In January 2018, Paris got engaged to her actor boyfriend, Chris Zylka, during an Aspen, Colorado, ski trip. Paris’ ring contains a 20-carat pear-shaped center diamond with a split shank halo band, which includes roughly two carats of diamonds. Her massive ring is estimated to be worth $2 million.
Many celebrities’ engagement rings are huge and elaborate, but for Amy Schumer, it wasn’t about showing off a large diamond ring. The comedian married her chef boyfriend, Chris Fischer, on February 13, 2018. The couple had only been dating a short time when they got married. Amy’s engagement ring consists of a round-cut diamond on a thin band with tiny pave set diamonds on the band. Her wedding band is a simple thin gold band. The two together are classy and beautiful, showing that gorgeous does not have to mean large.
Lea Michele, probably most famous for her role as Rachel Berry on “Glee,” got engaged to Zandy Reich, the president AYR, a women’s clothing company, in April 2018. Along with the engagement came a 4-carat radiant-cut diamond ring with smaller diamonds along the band. The couple had reportedly been dating for over a year before getting engaged.
Meghan Markle is a bit of a double celebrity as both a former actress and as the current Duchess of Sussex and wife of Prince Harry, whom she married on May 19, 2018. When Meghan got engaged in November 2017, Prince Harry gave her a ring with serious sentimental value. The Duchess of Sussex’s yellow gold band has three diamonds on it. The center diamond is the largest and came from Botswana, a place dear to the couple’s hearts since they have traveled there together. The other two smaller stones came from Prince Harry’s mother’s personal collection. Since Princess Diana has passed on, the ring allows Prince Harry to pay tribute to his mother’s memory.
Actress, singer, and “American Idol” alum Katharine McPhee got engaged to her record producer boyfriend, David Foster, in June 2018 while the couple was vacationing in Italy. Katharine’s ring has a large center emerald-cut diamond with a split shank band. Her ring is especially special because Katharine’s last conversation with her father before his passing in July was about the ring. Katharine and David have known each other for over a decade, having met on the set of “American Idol” when she was a contestant and he was a mentor. Yet, they were only friends at first. It was only last year that their relationship started to take a romantic turn.
For “The Big Bang Theory” star, Kaley Cuoco, her 32nd birthday on November 30, 2017, brought about a special present, an engagement ring from her then-boyfriend, professional equestrian jumper Karl Cook. Kaley’s ring includes a large pear-shaped solitaire diamond and smaller diamonds along the band. The couple have been dating since 2016. Karl and Kaley got married exactly seven months after getting engaged. Their June 30, 2018 wedding took place at a horse stable, a special location for these horse enthusiasts.
Victoria Secret model Karlie Kloss and businessman Joshua Kutchner got engaged in July 2018 after six years of dating. Joshua, who is the younger brother of Jared Kutchner, gave Karlie a large cushion-cut solitaire diamond ring with a diamond pave band. By some estimates, Karlie’s ring could be worth up to half a million dollars and contain a high-quality, practically flawless center diamond, which could be over seven carats.
When they got engaged, actress Michelle Williams and musician Phil Elverum kept things private, and it wasn’t until after the wedding that the couple revealed that they’d gotten married in July 2018. Even before they officially announced the seriousness of their relationship, though, people noticed a nice ring on Michelle’s finger in early January, which many assumed was an engagement ring. The ring contains a single large heart-shaped diamond on a thin gold band. It is understandable that the couple would want to keep their relationship as private as possible for as long as possible. Both Michelle and Phil have suffered a difficult death of someone they loved. In 2008, Heath Ledger, the father of Michelle’s daughter, died unexpectedly of a drug overdose. Phil’s first wife, Geneviève Castrée’s died in 2016 from cancer. Both likely needed time and space to adjust to the idea of loving someone else.
2018 will be a busy year for Princess Eugenie, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York. Princess Eugenie, who is currently ninth in line for the British throne, got engaged to her boyfriend of seven years, Jack Brooksbank, in Nicaragua in January 2018. The couple plans to marry on October 12, 2018, in St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, the same place where Prince Harry and Meghan got married earlier this year. While Princess Eugenie is not as well-known as her cousins, Prince William and Prince Harry, her ring’s definitely just as impressive as the ones they gave their wives. It has a large center pink padparadscha sapphire with ten brilliant cut diamonds and two pear cut diamonds surrounding the sapphire. Her ring is estimated to be worth 100,000 pounds (roughly $130,000 US).
Each of these rings is as unique as the star wearing it. If you are looking for a gorgeous engagement ring that fits your personality perfectly, be sure to visit James Allen where your dream ring can become a reality.
