The 50 Most Unique Celebrity Engagement Rings, From Hailey Bieber to Beyoncé
This year has already seen plenty of proposals, and the celebrity engagement rings that have been debuted are all beautiful in their own right, tapping into some of the leading engagement ring trends in the bridal jewelry world. Millie Bobby Brown’s sparkler from fiancé Jake Bongiovi features a large, round solitaire diamond surrounded by a halo, estimated to be anywhere from 3-3.5 carats for the center stone and valued between $50,000-$100,000. Meanwhile, “Dear Evan Hansen” star Ben Platt is sporting a unique sapphire with two diamond side stones set in yellow gold – a real stunner that isn’t easy to forget.
Of course, there are plenty of jewels from years prior that are still on our minds. Megan Fox’s engagement ring features her own birthstone, an emerald, alongside Machine Gun Kelly’s, a diamond, in an east-west setting. Based on the ultimate love story, the custom Stephen Webster piece is far from traditional, and as MGK described on Instagram, it was intricately crafted to represent “two halves of the same soul” forming a heart. Simone Biles’s engagement ring from football player Jonathan Owens is all about the sparkle. Her oval-shaped diamond made its debut with the help of ZoFrost & Co. through a sentimental Valentine’s Day proposal.
Other celebrities, like HyunA and Dawn, are shifting the standard for engagement rings. The K-pop stars both have matching opals on white-gold bands that are sprinkled with diamonds to signify their love. The chunky mood-ring aesthetic plays into the Y2K-inspired jewelry trend and proves that an engagement ring does not have to be classic. Designed by Seoul-based jewelry shop Diligems, these unique styles are the only rings of their kind, as owner Yueun Esther Shin promised on Instagram, revealing that Dawn worked on dreaming up the special pieces for over a month.
Finally, Jennifer Lopez‘s long-awaited reunion with old beau Ben Affleck led to an intimate bathtub proposal, with Lopez now sporting a huge green-stone engagement ring just about everywhere she goes.
But these are just the rings we’ve seen in recent history. Some of the most stylish celebrity rings out there – from the likes of Neil Lane, Lorraine Schwartz, and Cartier – are still considered unique and remain a source of inspiration for brides-to-be everywhere. That’s why we have gathered all of the most stylish celebrity engagement rings from years past and will continue to keep you updated every time another jaw-dropping stone hits the red carpet or gets its first close-up on Instagram.
