5 Celebrity Engagement Rings That You Can Afford
5 Celebrity Engagement Rings That You Can Afford
Are you looking for a way to give your girlfriend the star treatment when you ask her to marry you? If a candlelit dinner on a rooftop in Paris is out of the question, consider getting her an engagement ring inspired by the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
Most people don't have the engagement ring budget enjoyed by wildly successful actors, athletes, singers, and performance industry bigwigs. But that doesn't mean you can't shop for celebrity engagement rings!
When you look for a ring that's fit for a star, start by taking cues from her favorite female celebrities. What do their engagement rings look like? From there, you can start browsing online for news stories about other famous rings to get an idea of what would best suit your sweetheart's style and your budget. Keep in mind that some prominent women's engagement rings cost hundreds of thousands of dollars!
If you don't have time to scroll through countless websites looking for celebrity engagement rings and then trying to hunt down cheaper alternatives, don't sweat it. We've got you covered with our roundup of five fantastic engagement rings that look like they belong to actual celebrities. Unlike those famous women's rings, though, our lookalike suggestions won't cost you an arm and a leg.
When Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton on November 16, 2010, he gave her one of the most meaningful celebrity engagement rings of the past 40 years. Not only is the ring itself a classically gorgeous piece of jewelry, but it also belonged to William's mother, Princess Diana. After her untimely death in 1997, Prince William and Prince Harry were each allowed to select one of their mother's personal items as a keepsake. William chose a Cartier watch while Harry took her sapphire engagement ring. Before Harry proposed 13 years later, he and his brother switched tokens, giving new life to Princess Diana's dazzling engagement ring.
Kate's ring features a 12-carat, oval-cut sapphire in a beautiful blue hue. Fourteen diamonds surround the central stone on its 18K white gold setting. However, the most jaw-dropping feature of this majestic engagement ring is its estimated value of approximately $400,000.
To give your gal the royal treatment without shelling out hundreds of thousands of dollars, consider choosing our Deep Blue sapphire engagement ring at Jewels for Bride.
Our take on the Duchess of Cambridge's bauble features a 3.2-carat oval-cut sapphire surrounded by a halo of clear crystals that glitter like diamonds without the big price tag. Rather than featuring a costly 18K white gold setting, the Deep Blue comes in 925 sterling silver. Our ring's modestly priced metal gives you all of the shine plus lasting durability.
Combine royal inspiration with a lower price point that will better assist you in building a new life with your paramour, and you've got yourself a downright incredible celebrity engagement ring.
Have you ever wondered whether an engagement ring could be too desirable? Black Swan star Mila Kunis certainly does. Rather than enjoying wearing her engagement ring alongside her wedding band every day, she keeps it tucked away in a safety deposit box. The reason for keeping the ring guarded and out of sight? Mila worries that someone will "chop [her] hand off for it."
When actor Ashton Kutcher proposed to his former That '70s Show castmate in February 2014, she received a showstopping 5-carat round-cut diamond solitaire by Tiffany & Co. That massive rock is reportedly worth $250,000, so it's understandable that Mila would want to keep it out of sight.
If your special someone would love the look of a diamond solitaire, consider going for our Starlight engagement ring. This vastly more affordable piece comes with a prong-mounted, round-cut cubic zirconia solitaire atop a tapered, 925 sterling silver shank. That solitaire may not be as big as Mila's, but your bride-to-be will never have to worry about keeping it under lock and key.
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria's engagement ring sports a style you don't often see: an oval-cut ruby bordered by diamonds on a white gold band. The ring head's design is similar to that of Kate Middleton's sapphire engagement ring, but that eye-catching ruby makes it stand out from the pack.
If you believe your girlfriend would adore an engagement ring with a little spice, we've got the perfect alternative to Eva's ring.
The Forever After comes in a variety of color options, including one with a round-cut red cubic zirconia surrounded by diamond-like CZ accents. The setting is quality-crafted 925 sterling silver coated with a compelling rose gold finish.
If you want to ensure that your better half will definitely love the ring she gets, and if hinting at an upcoming proposal won't risk complicating your relationship, consider copying songstress Meghan Trainor and actor Daryl Sabara. The pair picked Meghan's engagement ring together before Daryl proposed. This unconventional decision let them know for sure that the ring would be absolutely perfect for the "All About That Bass" singer.
That doesn't mean Daryl's proposal wasn't a surprise, however. He constructed a tunnel of holiday lights and secretly invited Meghan's friends and family to witness as he popped the question. Luckily for the rest of us, her brother captured this heartwarming moment on video.
Meghan's engagement ring features a cushion-cut diamond on a platinum setting accented with a halo of pave diamonds, with additional diamonds gracing the shoulders. Stunning!
If you (and your bride-to-be) like this on-trend look, consider the Forever After 925 sterling silver and clear cubic zirconia alternative at Jewels for Bride. Our highly affordable take on Meghan's expensive ring captures the original's incredible sparkle and silvery shine. What it doesn't do is drain your bank account of your hard-earned money. How sweet is that?
At first glance, the diamond engagement ring that baseball legend Derek Jeter gave swimsuit model Hannah Davis looks similar to our sterling and CZ Forever After ring at Jewels for Bride. Instead of a square head and a large stone surrounded by a halo of accents, though, there's a large round-cut diamond set over a pave diamond band.
What really catches our eye is Hannah's wedding ring. Her diamond eternity band features a circle of mid-sized stones that complements her engagement ring while adding incredible sparkle to her hand. The look is timeless, elegant, and polished, making it the perfect symbol of endless love. Leave it to Derek Jeter to knock one out of the park with his choice in diamond rings!
If you'd like to capture this romantic vibe for your future fiancee's engagement ring or wedding band, you really can't go wrong with The Promise from Jewels for Bride. Our version boasts a bevy of clear cubic zirconia stones set over a 925 sterling silver band. Its uniformly even design makes our affordable eternity band perfect for stacking with other rings to create a dazzling effect.
Give Her the Real Star Treatment
Many celebrities can afford to pay top dollar for the finest engagement rings. As for the rest of us, we need to budget to be able to make sure our lives are stable, sweet, and set up for years of health and happiness.
Don't spend a tremendous amount of money on an engagement ring to try to keep up with celebs. Instead, get your sweetheart a ring in a style that celebrities love, at a price that won't break the bank and guarantee you years of unnecessary debt. The savings you'll get from this smarter investment will help fund the life you'll be building with your bride-to-be. What could be more fabulous than that?
