Angelina Jolie’s emerald-cut sparkler is among the most unique celebrity engagement rings of late. Since most celebrities favor the biggest and priciest rock, Jolie’s ring is refreshing in its unique elegance. With the Jolie-Pitt sparkler as our guide, let’s take a look at a few of the most original celebrity engagement rings on record:
When John F. Kennedy proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier in the early 1950s, he gave her a stunning engagement ring with a 2.88-carat white diamond mounted beside a 2.84-carat emerald stone. The diamond and emerald stones were set atop a yellow gold band lined with tapered baguettes.
In 1962, the ring was reset and .66 total carats of round diamonds and 1.46 carats of marquise diamonds were added to the piece.
Former Australian cricketer Shane Warne popped the big question to British actress Elizabeth Hurley with one of the more stylish rings in recent memory. Hurley’s engagement ring features a 9-carat sapphire center stone surrounded by trillion-cut diamonds on each side. The ring reportedly cost $100,000, and serves as the perfect complement to Hurley’s stylish elegance.
Katherine Heigl’s engagement ring puts an asymmetrical spin on halo diamonds. The “Knocked Up” star’s ring features a 3-carat, pear-shaped diamond stone surrounded by a halo of brilliant-cut diamonds. The rose gold band is studded with dozens of small diamonds which shimmer beautifully.
Back in 2008, actress and former playboy centerfold Carmen Electra received a black diamond engagement ring from Korn’s Rob Patterson. The 2-carat, spicy black, solitaire ring has an understated, edgy charm that perfectly fits Electra’s persona.
Actress and part-time real estate agent Brooke Mueller had her hands full during her three-year marriage to Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen. In 2008, Sheen pledged his undying devotion with an 11-carat diamond engagement ring. The stunning piece features a brilliant-cut, yellow diamond center stone encircled by a halo of micro pave white diamonds. The yellow and white diamonds are set atop a diamond encrusted, platinum band.
