Princess Diana

The famous blue sapphire ring of Princess Diana was once criticised for being ordinary due to it un-customised origins. However, since her engagement in 1981 this ring has become an icon of coloured stone engagement rings. Featuring a 12 carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 14 white diamonds this design is still sort-after today. Of course, this ring now resides on Cate Middleton’s finger and will go down in history as one of the most famous engagement rings of all time.

Jackie Kennedy

During her time as first lady, Jackie Kennedy influenced a nation with her personal style and cemented her position in modern history as a fashion icon. It’s no surprise then that her engagement ring was to be equally iconic. John F Kennedy proposed with a breathtakingly unique art deco design. The ring features 2.88 carat emerald cut diamond alongside a 2.84 carat emerald. The gemstones are off set in the centre amongst a cluster of marquise and round diamonds. There is no doubt this ring is a showstopper and will go down in history just like the lady herself!

Blake Lively

This starlet’s ring is one of the most talked about engagement rings of the past decade. Elegant and bold, much like the actress herself, Blake’s ring is a gorgeous 12 carat pink diamond. The light pink hue of the stone is exquisitely complimented by the diamond embedded rose gold band. This ring left an impact on bride-to-be’s everywhere with oval cut diamonds rising in popularity since it’s debut.

Halle Berry

When it comes to emeralds Halle Berry’s impressive rock is not one to be missed! Halle’s ring is a bold design that perfectly matches her personal style. The 4 carat emerald is featured in a stunning hand-forged yellow gold setting. The unique design features a gorgeous textured metal finish with two round diamonds on either side for contrast.

Heidi Klum

Super models are no strangers to stand-out fashion moments. But Heidi Klum’s yellow diamond engagement ring is one we will never forget. Her (now ex) husband sealed the deal with a gorgeous 10 carat elongated cushion cut diamond on a petite yellow gold band. Like the women herself, this engagement ring is positively radiant!

Katy Perry

This engagement ring is as iconic as the popstar wearing it. The one-of-a-kind ring features an oval cut pink-hued ruby with flower-shaped diamond halo. A perfect reflection of the singer’s fun and colourful personality this ring is truly unique. Not to mention perfectly in-line with her blossoming (or should we say blooming) love story with husband Orlando and daughter, Daisy.

Eva Longoria

There is no better way to describe this actress’ ring other than bold and beautiful. The ring features a show-stopping ruby in the centre with a halo of white diamonds. Eva’s now-husband is said to have taken inspiration from Princess Diana’s iconic ring.

Kristen Bell

This actress is a one-of-a-kind leading lady who is equal parts funny and beautiful. It’s no surprise to us that her engagement ring is as unique as she is. Her ring features a stunning 3 carat emerald cut cognac diamond with channel set diamonds either side. This art deco design oozes classic elegance while the coloured diamond gives a contemporary, earthy vibe.

These lucky celebrities have adorned some of the most beautiful and rare gemstones in the world. Although not all the relationships may have lasted, their engagement rings have gone down in history as the best ever.
