Top Celebrity Weddings of All Time--3...
Trying to recall someone of the most iconic celebrity couples? Here is our list of the top celebrity weddings of all time and what you may want to know about your favorite superstars.
Every time one of our favourite Hollywood couples get engaged, the first thing we all can’t wait to catch a glimpse of is the extravagant engagement ring that accompanies the proposal. While almost all celebrity engagement rings are worth ogling, we do still have some favourites! One of our top picks is Gossip Girl star, Blake Lively's engagement ring.
Not only did Blake bag herself a gorgeous husband when actor, Ryan Reynolds, popped the question in 2012; she got an equally gorgeous engagement ring! Ryan presented his bride-to-be with a dazzling 12-carat oval-cut diamond set in rose gold. Blake Lively's engagement ring also features pavé diamonds along the thin rose gold band, giving her engagement ring some extra sparkle. She is one of the first (and very few) Hollywood stars to wear a rose-gold band, but we expected no less from such a fashion-forward lady.
The ring was designed by world-renowned jewellery designer, Lorraine Schwartz, who also happens to be a close friend of Blake’s. A spokesperson for Lorraine Schwartz confirmed that Ryan worked closely with Lorraine to design the perfect engagement ring for Blake, as it needed to look good on her petite fingers. The pair finally settled on a dusty pink oval diamond that boasts some serious clarity. So how much did it set Ryan back to give the beautiful Blake Lively the engagement ring of her dreams? It’s estimated a cool $2 million! Talk about pulling out all the stops! At that price tag it’s no wonder Blake is wearing the biggest oval-cut engagement ring in Hollywood.
Set in timeless platinum and boasting a beautiful oval-cut diamond (carat of your choice) framed in pavé diamonds with an eternity band, this show-stopping ring starts at a budget-friendly $2800, making it a winner for ladies after a classic look.
