Celebrities are known for their stand-out lifestyles. Lavish cars, dining at only the best restaurants, wearing Versace, Gucci handbags slung over their shoulders, and of course, wearing some of the biggest and most beautiful diamond jewelry any of us have ever seen. So is there really such a thing as an engagement ring that’s too big? The trends are saying no.
Engagement rings among celebs are getting larger by the season it seems. Some say it all started with the star who has received more engagement rings than all other stars; the lovely Elizabeth Taylor.
When Taylor became engaged to husband number three in 1957, she toted a whopping 30 carat diamond engagement ring for all to see. Seems big diamond engagement rings are finding their way onto the red carpet once again.
In 2005, Paris Hilton was given a brilliant 24-carat diamond engagement ring from her fiancé, Paris Latisis. Music legends, Mariah Carey and Beyonce both received striking diamond engagement rings from their significant others. Carey landed a 17-carat emerald-cut pink diamond and Beyonce’s rapper boyfriend, Jay-Z, proposed to her in 2007 with a beautiful 18-carat diamond engagement ring. And let’s not forget Kim Kardashian’s mammoth 20.5-carat diamond engagement ring.
So the question still begs; are celebrity engagement rings too big? Well, it’s really a matter of opinion. Some circles believe they’re all in competition with one another to see who can give/receive the biggest engagement ring. Who cares why these huge diamond engagements rings are being gifted. They are still remarkable, unique stones that dazzle everyone’s senses.
Others believe these famous engagement rings are simply a sign of the times, and a growing trend that will continue to grow each year. Maybe so, but what it boils down to is personal opinion. That’s what’s so great about giving your girl a diamond engagement ring.
The one you pick out is special because you picked it out. We all look at these big celebrity diamond engagement rings and say wow! But, then we glance down at the one our soul mate bought specially for us, and our hearts melt all over again.
There’s probably a limit to how big an engagement ring need be. Of course, that limit hasn’t been reached yet as is evident with the ever-growing size of the engagement rings celebrities are gifting to their lovers. Still, determining what is and isn’t too big for an engagement ring is entirely up to the giver and the receiver.
If your better half, got down on one knee and proposed to you with a huge diamond ring would that bother you? What if the ring wasn’t big? What if it was a simple 1-carat cushion-cut diamond perched elegantly on a simple gold band? Would that be ok with you? Of course it would because it the message behind the ring that matters most.
I love you!
There’s no better way to say it except with a diamond!
We tend to follow our favorite celebrities, idolize them and watch their every move. Popular culture is now influenced by the lifestyle of the rich and famous, their choice of clothing and yes- even their engagements.
An engagement ring can represen
t more than just a personal taste- it can be the embodiment of our persona.
Which famous celebrities recent got married and what does their engagement ring might suggest? Here are our exclusive conclusions:
Scarlett Johansson- Johansson got recently engaged and married to actor Ryan Reynolds. Just like Johansson, the engagement ring decorating her finger is young, gentle and classic. Don’t be fooled by the humble look of the ring- it cost over 30k!
Katie Holmes- Holmes infamous marriage to Tom Cruise began with a very unique oval shaped diamond ring. Katie is known to have an exquisite taste when it comes to fashion and luxury, which is no surprise that her five carat engagement ring is unique. The ring has platinum rose gold settings with an antique vintage feel.
Eva Longoria- Our favorite desperate housewife recently wed NBA’s basketball player Tony Parker. Their relationships had its ups and downs but one thing is certain- Longoria’s engagement ring is absolutely stunning! Eva’s ring is almost as noticeable as she is since it’s so large and dominant. Eva sure does love luxurious pieces!
Ashley Simpson- Simpson may have been very young at the time she married Pete Wentz but it seems that when it comes to her taste in jewelry- there’s nothing juvenile about her. Her breath taking engagement ring cost a whopping 100k$ and it’s a true stunner, just like the lady who wears it.
Jessica Alba- Alba is notoriously beautiful which is why the only appropriate choice of an engagement ring for Mrs. Alba had to be the top of the top. Alba has received a stunning ring from her boyfriend Brad Cafarelli and it was a beautiful sign of commitment between the loving parents.
Beyonce- Nobody loves to live well like Jay-z which is why no one was surprised when Beyonce received a 5 million dollar ring from her beloved rapper. The ring is a Lorraine Schwartz stunner and we are convinced that this 18 carat flawless diamond is so massive that it can be seen from the moon.
Whether you’re decadent, humble or esthetic loving person- your engagement ring can reveal a lot about your nature.
We may not be able to splurge 5 million dollars on our dream engagement ring but no matter which ring you choose- always makes sure that it reflects your true character.
Since the launch of Lady Gaga’s video with Beyonce for the hit song “Telephone” the worlds population can be divided to two groups of people- those who have seen the video and those who haven’t.
The video- filled with sponsorships, references to oth
er famous moments in pop culture and provocations- almost made us forget that Gaga is also a brilliant style icon.
When it comes to style, Gaga is a devoted artist – her performance cannot be completed without the right piece of jewelry.
In the 2009 VMA’s for example- Gaga decorated her impressive Jean Paul Gaultier gown with a massive tribal necklace and who can forget Gaga’s recent appearance at the amFar wearing a total look of white makeup and white pearls decorating her angelic looking face.
When it comes to jewelry Lady Gaga likes to make a splash- she only wears statement pieces such a massive gold rings and big plastic bangles.
Gaga loves to sparkle which is also why she usually integrates jewelry in her clothes like the amazing couture Armani dress she recently wore or her crystal bodysuit for the “Poker face” video.
If you wish to look as sparkly and as bright as Lady Gaga but not as outrageous, all you need to do is to interpret her current outfits for the “Telephone” video into wearable items that we can all use.
Take for example Lady Gaga’s risky chain outfit from the video that can be easily interpreted into a nice chain necklace that can be worn with a summer dress or with a cute top.
Who can forget Lady Gaga’s eccentric yellow tape outfit that can be interpreted into a fancy diamond ring or a yellow diamond pedant.
Making a statement like Lady Gaga is easy with the right pieces of jewelry. If you wish to make a performance gaga style, make sure you accessories yourself with a nice statement necklace or with a massive cuff bracelet.
If you wish to imitate Gaga’s fellow star in the Telephone video- Beyonce, you can accessorize yourself with a diamond Tennis bracelet just like the hot starlet did in the video.
