Celebrities and Their Favorite Diamonds

When it comes to diamonds, celebrities often spare no expense when they shop. The average celebrity prides him or herself on uniqueness and you will often see diamond cuts that are not round traditional stones. Here is a look at some of the cuts that are making the news and creating a lot of sparkle in the process.

Emerald Cut

The emerald cut is not flashy but is certainly different from all the other cuts. Kate Beckinsale’s engagement ring from Len Wiseman has a large emerald cut stone. This is a unique ring set with stacked bands, perfectly matching the wedding ring. Valued at about $50,000, it is as stunning as it is impressive.

Asscher Cut

Beautiful diamond

If you check out the ring that Chris Martin gave Gwyneth Paltrow, you will see a great example of an Asscher cut stone. This $150,000 sparkler is as unique as it is beautiful. The frame is made from a series of small diamonds and referred to as “micro pave”. You can appreciate the craftsmanship in the structure which supports an amazing 8 carat stone.

Cushion cut

If you would like to see what a million dollars looks like, take a look at the amazing cushion cut ring that Giuliana Rancic recently wore. It is a full 18 carats in size and created quite a stir at the Emmy Awards in 2013. However, there is no need to be too envious dear readers, as she could not afford such luxury either. It was loaned to her by Forevermark.

In the Pink

Celebrities love precious stones that are unusual, and pink is something that you do not see every day. When Nick Cannon asked Mariah Carey to marry him, he gave her a stunning engagement ring with a 17 carat pink rock. The emerald cut sparkler is also accompanied by an amazing 58 smaller pink stones, and that is not all. There are two crescent shaped diamonds on the sides and all at a mere 2.5 million dollars.

Just as impressive, tennis pro Anna Kournikova received a fabulous pear cut pink diamond ring from longtime boyfriend Enrique Iglesias. This ring is said to be just as valuable as Mariah’s.

Yellow is in

Many celebrities choose to be different and yellow diamonds make that statement. Paris Hilton received a huge yellow (21 carat) diamond ring from Paris Latsis, a few years ago.

Other celebrities like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood have sported fantastic engagement rings with the main stones being yellow in color. The list also includes Adele, and Rebecca Romijn. Not long ago, Kelly lost her engagement ring but she found it after an extensive search.

Rarity and beauty

Famous people love diamonds, and that is for sure. In addition, they like cuts that are uncommon so they will attract attention. They also love colors like yellow and pink. However, you do not have to spend millions of dollars to enjoy fine custom made jewelry. Your online jeweler is there to help you create the perfect ring for your occasion, and you can find something that fits your budget as well as your tastes.
