Sure signs that spring has arrived include melting snow, chirping birds, and the inevitable engagements of some of Hollywood’s most talked about couples!
And this year is no disappointment, with a memorable proposal by a former Backstreet Boy, the sort of romance that only Saturday Night can offer, and Oliva Wilde’s choice of a new halo. All these stars have were engaged in 2013 and, of course, brought out some jaw dropping bling-bling to mark the occasion. We’ll be looking at a handful of the best engagement ring designs from 2013, and discussing makes each design so special. Hopefully along the way, you’ll think of some inspiring ideas for when you’re exploring engagement ring designs.
Nick Carter Picks the Perfect Traditional Engagement Ring Design for his Ultra Romantic Proposal
In March, Nick Carter proposed to long-time girlfriend Lauren Kitt with a ring extravagant enough to be the sixth Backstreet Boy. After a romantic boat ride (with only a few engine breakdowns), Nick proposed to his sweetheart on the cliffs overlooking the ocean of an island he visited a child. It doesn’t get more picture perfect than that!
Nick’s engagement ring design featured a simple platinum setting with a massive pear cut diamond, that’s sure to turn heads. The seven-carat diamond has gorgeous clarity and a one-of-a-kind look. Lauren Kitt was overjoyed and the couple is now hard at work planning their wedding. No word yet on who the band will be (although we doubt it will be N ‘Sync).
The Lonely Island isn’t so Isolated: Andy Samberg’s Tasteful Ring for a Tasteful Woman
Famous for cracking jokes and making audiences laugh, Andy Samberg is now up to something we hope won’t end comically. The Saturday Night Live star and Lonely Islander recently expressed his love for musical girlfriend Joanna Newsom with a lovely custom engagement ring.
Andy went with the classic round solitaire in a tasteful vintage inspired setting, which is will never go out of style. It’s always nice to see a classic throwback executed perfectly. Sure, it’s not as eye-catching as a huge rock, but it has an air of refined taste and elegance (who knew Andy had it in him?). All and all it’s a smart engagement ring design that shows how well Andy knows his fiancé.
Olivia Wilde has come a Long Way from the OC, But Her Ring Would Still Fit Right In
Olivia Wilde’s engagement to another SNL funny man Jason Sudeikis has been drawing a lot of attention recently — and for good reason. This successful duo is sure to go far with a highly successful Hollywood career to keep each of them busy. Clearly Jason knows about more than cracking jokes, however, as he picked out a top-notch engagement ring design.
His choice? A large diamond that looks gorgeous without stealing the show, and which is nestled in a halo of emerald to create a gorgeous gemstone combination. The gems are set in yellow gold on an incredibly delicate band, allowing the interplay between emeralds and diamonds to steal the show.
No two ways about it, this ring is fantastic, and is a highlight of the Spring 2013 engagement ring designs so far. Olivia Wilde must be delighted with this ring. And who can blame her? Of course, she’s keeping some of the design details to herself – maybe to add some mystery, or simply because some spectacular creations simply have to be seen and appreciated, rather than discussed and described.
