Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: The Engagement Ring and Proposal!

Yup, we predicted it! Congratulations to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West! Kanye surprised the mother of his child, North West, with a proposal! The engagement ring is quite the sparkler. Check out that huge 15 carat emerald/cushion cut engagement ring from Lorraine Schwartz.

On the eve of Kim Kardashian’s birthday, they were in San Francisco, and West plotted a sweet engagement surprise for Kim at AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. West had the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” on the jumbotron while a 50-piece orchestra was playing Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” and Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and West’s “Knock You Down.” Quite a romantic!

Celebrity Engagement Ring Round-Up 2013

What better way to head into “engagement season” than to check out what the stars are rocking?  Here’s a recap for you: The 2013 Celebrity Engagement Ring Round-Up!

Katie Couric and John Molner: Katie Couric reported that when John proposed to her, she was stunned. It actually took her a while to say yes and we can see why! Her princess cut diamond was surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds, giving it a vintage touch. She says of the engagement ring, “It’s a spectacular diamond.”

Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting: What a show stopper! Now, about the engagement ring… I kid. But seriously, check out that huge engagement ring that the pro tennis player chose for Kaley. I know that halo (smaller diamonds surrounding the center diamond) is all the rage now, but I love when I see it on a fun, unique shape like oval or in The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco’s case, a beautiful emerald cut diamond.

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Brial Hallisay: A classic engagement ring for the Client List co-stars. Brial proposed to Jennifer with a simple round diamond engagement ring with a pave diamond covered setting.

Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko: Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville) and her heavyweight champ fiancee had rumors buzzing about their engagement for a couple of months, now. They finally came clean when Hayden was spotted sporting this sparkler, a split-shank emerald diamond engagement ring, reported to be about over 4 carats.

Lance Bass and Michael Tutchin: I love the fact that Lance and Michael chose a traditional wedding band sans diamonds. What looks to be a comfort fit wedding band with two black detailed lines is a classic and timeless choice for the newly-engaged!

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo: Adam Levine proposed to Victoria’s Secret model, Behati Prinsloo  with a beautiful vintage engagement ring that dates back to the 1930′s. Certainly a rare and extraordinary jewel meant for a special lover. I absolutely adore The Voice judge, Adam Levine’s choice!

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sukeis: A beautiful and unique engagement ring was completely befitting the stunning Rush actress, Olivia Wilde. A bezel set round center diamond is surrounded by an emerald halo. Jason must have thought those precious green gems would bring out Wilde’s striking eyes.

Lauren Conrad and William Tell: My new favorite… a beautiful and classic solitaire. Don’t be fooled, you guys… look at the size of that sparkling diamond. That’s all that this starlet needed.


I really don’t know which I could pick as my favorite… I wish I could pick them all, because they are so lovely. I adore art deco rings, so I’d have to say that Scarlett Johansson’s ring definitely stole my heart. Which is your favorite engagement ring style? If you’ve got a similar engagement ring, show us a picture!
