Love might come and go but diamonds are forever. This is probably why celebrities aren’t stingy when it comes to picking out the best engagement rings to celebrate and symbolise their love and commitment to each other.
So whether you’re shopping for an engagement ring to hint your partner to pop the question or just want to learn more about the prettiest and biggest stones celebrities wear on their ring finger, read on.
After 5 years of dating, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are engaged! The pop star made the announcement on her own Instagram with a video post of the two, and her flashing a diamond engagement ring.
And while many were excited about the news, there are some who are more focused on something else. And yes, of course, it was none other than her new rock.
According to research by Divorce Answers, it has been revealed that Britney Spears’ round engagement ring has ranked 5th on the list of the ‘Most Searched Ring 2021’, with about 10,200 searches ever since her announcement.
Marriage and therapy specialist at Divorce Answers, Lauren Cook-McKay, commented, “A round cut engagement ring like Britney’s will always stay a classic, in my opinion, meaning it won’t top the list of most searched, but will always be up there with a good amount of interest. Its value will also always be high, as it’s not a passing trend.”
If you’re in the loop then you would’ve already heard of Ariana Grande’s intimate wedding ceremony with her beau, Delton Gomez. The couple seemed to have met through mutual friends. But by all accounts, they began dating in January last year in 2020. However, during the course of their romance, things were kept pretty low key and out of the public eye.
But besides her stunning Audrey Hepburn inspired dress by Vera Wang, many are still talking about the rock on her finger. If you’ve seen a few photos of her circulating online, then you’d notice that her engagement ring features an oval-shaped diamond at a tilted angle alongside a pearl, set on what appears to be a platinum band. The pearl on the ring was also originally sourced from her grandfather’s tie pin. According to the singer, her grandmother had a dream that the pearl would protect her.
More importantly, the oval-shaped engagement ring has also garnered the likes of many and has been reported to be one of the most searched engagement ring shapes in 2021 according to SEO platform Semrush.
Less than a month after American country singer Blake Shelton posted his love for Gwen Stefani on social media on her 51st birthday, he has popped the all-important question to his girlfriend of five years.
And her answer?
“Yes please,” the vocalist of the band No Doubt wrote on social media. She posted a photo of them kissing and her showing off a ring on her finger.
Shelton, 44, posted the same photo and wrote: “Thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES.”
According to People magazine, the couple got engaged in Oklahoma, where they have been spending time at his ranch amid the coronavirus pandemic.
On Stefani’s birthday on Oct 3, Shelton had posted a photo of them from their music video “Happy Anywhere”, where she is seen cosying up to him in a corn field.
He wrote: “It’s a special day for a special lady in my life. Happy birthday @gwenstefani, I’d write a song for you every single day if I could.”
The two met as coaches on singing-competition show The Voice (2011 to present) and went public with their relationship in November 2015 after rumours of them dating surfaced online.
Shelton was married to fellow country singer Miranda Lambert, 36, from 2011 to 2015, while Stefani was married to English singer Gavin Rossdale, 54, for nearly 14 years until their divorce was finalised in 2016. Stefani and Rossdale have three sons together.
