The rich and famous certainly have it good when it comes to designing and affording amazing engagement rings. They continue to blaze the trail in setting very inspiring trends. This is certainly where size does matter and it seems that there is a definite element of competition amongst celebrities as to who has the largest stones, most intense sparkle and most original designs.
2017 sees a great variety in desirable shapes and sizes. Most notable is Serena William’s beautiful emerald cut diamond engagement ring which is estimated to be worth $2,000,000. It appears to be a 12-carat stone set in a platinum setting, is absolutely stunning and very fitting for such a talented ambassador for women’s tennis.
There were some head-turning engagement rings gracing red carpets and elite events globally, including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s gorgeous 5-carat ring worth an estimated $350,000, Margot Robbie’s stunning pink diamond surrounded by a diamond halo setting and Pippa Middleton’s gorgeous art deco engagement ring in which the centre diamond appears to be a 4-carat Asscher cut diamond. Due to the nature of these step-cut stones, the quality is paramount, so the stone requires the highest of clarity gradings. A flawless Asscher diamond set in an octagonal halo ring such as hers would fetch upwards of £200,000. Lucky lady!
