Just Engaged! Sending a warm congratulations to contestants Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd who were recently engaged on CBS’ Big Brother 16. When Jeff visited the Woodland Hills store, it was such a pleasure helping him find the ring that Jordan would adore. He was so excited and even a little nervous picking it out, but our wonderful engagement ring consultants, Amy Butler and Moraima Alamillo, helped put him right at ease. It was a ring-shopping “party” as the ladies assisted Jeff with his decision on a gorgeous cushion-cut halo diamond engagement ring from the Robbins Brothers Vintage Collection.

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!

Tyson Ritter and Elle Satine: Tyson Ritter of The All-American Rejects proposed to his lovely  beau, Elle Satine with a ring from Robbins Brothers in the city of Glendale!

Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac: Ugh, Art Deco, how I adore you! ScarJo’s engagement ring is inspired to be from another era. A beautiful art deco engagement ring has found a permanent home on the Avengers actress. Standing ovation for Romain Dauriac.

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!
