Noteworthy Celebrity Engagements (and Rings) of 2017
No one likes to keep engagements a secret. If they were, that would take away half the fun! Celebrities are largely no exception to the public engagement announcements (even if it’s only because the information leaked before they were ready to tell us)! Of course, with large-scale engagements, especially among Hollywood’s finest, come the elaborate, larger-scale engagement rings. Below is a list of the engagements we felt made the biggest waves, and the rings that will keep us buzzing all year long.
This is How Hollywood Pops the Question!
Several celebrity couples started a new chapter in their lives by asking, or saying yes to, the big question, and the rings are telling the whole fairytale!
The two stars of Revenge seem to glow ever since Josh Bowman ended his five-year courtship with a proposal of marriage to the lovely Emily VanCamp. Emily was smiling ear to ear when she made the announcement and showing off her new accessory!
VanCamp’s Ring: A close up of a picture taken just after the engagement, for which she proudly posed, revealed that this celebrity’s engagement ring is a pleasant-sized round stone, nestled in the center of a beautiful, vintage-style filigree band. Only her smile shone brighter!
Miss Janel Parrish experienced her little piece of fairytale with her beau, who she had dated for about a year, while they were walking with their dog through the park. If they ever have kids, she could always break the news to him while taking the pup to the groomer’s!
Parrish’s Ring: Long opted for a ring with a delicate gold band and sparkling, square-cut diamond to give to his beloved (now) fiancée. The first of many great choices going into the rest of their lives, it would seem!
Ashley Green makes for one beautiful bride-to-be all on her own. However, her tireless excitement, and her complete willingness to share something as personal and major as her engagement fans on social media, make her even more gorgeous!
Greene’s Ring: She now wears a ring that is elegant, but simple, just like her two fellow, recently engaged celebrity brides’ engagement rings. In fact, Greene’s bears a slight resemblance to VanCamp’s round-cut filigree ring, but without the vintage looking metal work.
One of the most notable future brides of 2017 is… well, not actually a bride, per se. In fact, it is Mr. Colton Haynes, to whom his partner, Jeff Leatham, popped the question in mid spring. This couple looks so incredibly wonderful together, and they seem ecstatic! Congratulations!
Haynes’s Ring: Jeff came close to outshining his proposal planning peers with the engagement ring he chose for his beloved. He chose a band that sparkles with nothing but diamonds, all the way around Haynes’s finger.
One thing Kirsten Dunst has in common with several other brides-to-be of the year is that she, too, prepares to say, “I do” to an amazing co-star. Jesse Plemons has played the role of husband to Dunst in Fargo, and now he wants to make it real!
Dunst’s Ring: Plemons gave his blushing bride a brilliant ring, with a bright, yellow gold band, an oval-shaped diamond with facets that shine with a little pink and yellow, and rests between two rectangular gems, to accent the one in the spotlight. It’s catching many eyes these days!
Artist, Offset, of Migos, made a grand display of his affection for his now-fiancée, fellow artist/rapper Cardi B. At a recent concert in Philly, Offset stopped in the middle of the show and popped the question to Cardi B., as the two performed onstage for tons of fans. That must have been a night to remember, for Cardi and Offset, as well as all the fans in attendance!
Cardi B’s Ring: Offset seems to believe that bigger is ALWAYS better, and with Cardi B’s ring, we couldn’t agree more! The beautiful, teardrop center diamond is surrounded by an identically shaped ring of small accent diamonds, and the wide engagement ring band is covered in tiny diamonds! Equaling 8 carats in total, Cardi B. has the biggest, most extravagant engagement ring on our list so far.
Ms. Caitlin McHugh, who has been dating the former “Uncle Jesse,” of Full House, joyfully accepted John Stamos’s marriage proposal earlier this year. The ecstatic couple’s posts and tweets circulate social media sites with outstanding popularity. According to some of the posts, the couple can’t wait to get married and start their family.
McHugh’s Ring: Caitlin’s finger looks so delicate, compared to the large, rectangular-shaped diamond that sits in the center of Stamos’s ring. Its ridges and edges give it a modern vintage kind of feel, and reports say that this ring is an eye-catching hit, wherever the couple goes! It’s a good thing they’re so thrilled to share the news!
Many of these rings have a sad story behind them, as in several instances, a breakup precedes the engagement announcement. However, the glimmer and sparkle of these large gems forever immortalizes the engagements, relationships and people that they were crafted to celebrate
