Valentine’s Day is an extraordinarily busy day for jewelers in the United States when, on average, more than 200,000 couples get engaged. It’s an awful lot of engagement rings, almost a quarter-million!
On Valentine’s Day 2014, one particular engagement stole the limelight, however, when Hollywood production assistant Matthew Rutler proposed to the Princess of Pop, Christina Aguilera.
Christina tweeted a photo of her gigantic new ring the evening of the 14th by Rutler, it features nine multi-colored gemstones, each selected for its symbolic meaning, set beneath a large diamond. The band is woven with diamonds, signifying how the 33 year-old Aguilera and Rutler’s paths crossed, and how their bond will grow ever stronger. It’s a one-of-a-kind engagement ring, for sure, with a particular meaning behind each jewel and its placement.
Rutler has worked on a number of popular films, including “The Proposal,” “Grown Ups” and “The Social Network.” He met Aguilera on the set of “Burlesque” in 2010.
This will be Aguilera’s second marriage. She was married to music producer Jordan Bratman from 2005 until 2010. They share custody of their 6-year-old son Max Bratman.
Barkevs wishes Christina and Matthew, and everyone else who got engaged last Friday, all the best!.
