Bouquets. Banquets. Bad dancing. Ah, weddings. They tend to differ widely in theme. Yet they’re almost always preceded by one event: the all-important marriage proposal.
Most of us get excited about any engagement. But those between celebrities can be particularly thrilling. Especially when it comes to rings.
With this in mind, we explore the best celebrity pieces of all time. Expect diamonds, glitz and – of course – glamour.
Engagements are usually a big deal. It’s only right that betrothed couples should want to express their love for one another.
And what better way to do this than through jewellery? A tasteful ring can convey sentiment. The right gem or stone often heightens its appeal – as many celebrities have shown.
True, diamonds are spectacular. Icons like Elizabeth Taylor have testified this through their engagement rings. But other stones can be equally as charming.
Take Kate Middleton’s sapphire piece, for example. Or the emerald number sported by former first lady Jackie Kennedy.
Celebrities have proved the visual power of a good stone time and time again.
Gems are all well and good. But design is equally as important – especially if you want to wow people.
Many find it tricky to be creative with the simple ring shape. Various celebrities have debunked this myth, though – in a wealth of ways.

With a diamond centre and emerald halo, actress Olivia Wilde’s was designed to match her eyes. Singer Ashlee Simpson’s is styled on Edwardian art.
Emily Ratajkowski’s husband designed her ring himself. It reportedly took up to 50 sketches to pinpoint the right look.
