You’re getting married and you may not be a celebrity, but that doesn’t mean it’s not your time to shine like one. If you’re searching for the perfect ring with a little more flare than your average engagement ring it’s time to take a lesson from these 5 celebrities…
You may be in love with Blake Lively’s 12-carat oval cut diamond engagement ring, but chances are you can’t afford a 12-carat diamond, few of us can. Not to worry, there are some more affordable diamond alternatives to help make your dream a reality. Consider using an oval cut morganite rather than a diamond center stone. Morganite has almost as much sparkle as a diamond, with a much more affordable price tag. If you’re tied to the idea of a diamond center stone, consider using an oval cut moissanite. Moissanite is a lab grown diamond with the same chemical composition as a naturally mined diamond. Not only is moissanite more affordable than a naturally mined diamond, it’s more sustainable and humanely sourced as well. Add a diamond band and BAM! You’re own Blake Lively replica engagement ring. See Abby Spark’s Jewelry’s The Kristyn custom engagement ring for inspiration.
If you’re looking for something simple and classic, like Mila Kunis’s 5-carat solitaire engagement ring check out Abby Sparks Jewelry’s The Amanda custom engagement ring. By sticking to one center stone with no accents diamonds, you can afford to splurge on a larger diamond. A prong setting will let more light into your stone allowing it to sparkle and glimmer to it’s maximum potential. Choose a metal that both compliments your skin tone, while fitting into your lifestyle. If you’re very active, you’ll want to stick with 14k gold or platinum, something that won’t get scratched by most other metals.
Perhaps you’re looking for something art deco inspired, like Scarlett Johansson’s engagement ring. In this case, you’ll want to stick with a a larger faced ring composed of delineated geometric shapes. Go with a square or rectangular silhouette, work circles into your design through round cut diamonds or gemstones. For something a bit easier to pull off in day to day wear, look to Abby Sparks Jewelry’s The Coleen custom engagement ring for inspiration.
For a more alternative design, use Halle Berry’s engagement ring for inspiration. A colorful center stone surrounded by accent diamonds will give you a playful pop of color, while still working the traditional diamonds into your engagement ring. Consider using a very vivid center stone like an emerald, sapphire or garnet paired with a high carat of gold for an exotic island look. While Halle Berry’s engagement ring is made of hand forged gold, you might also consider a cast with a more rough finish, like Abby Sparks Jewelry’s The Amy custom engagement ring.
If you’re looking for something traditional but out of the ordinary, look to Katherine Heigl’s engagement ring for inspiration. By going with a pear cut center diamond, you’ll still accomplish the traditional diamond engagement ring, with a bit more flare than your traditional round cut diamond. Opt for a melee halo and melee band for a bit of extra sparkle. If diamonds really are your best friend, you might consider a triple melee band as seen in Abby Sparks Jewelry’s The Erica custom engagement ring.
