Each love story is special, every proposal and every “Yes” bestowed is different and magical, and most of these marriage proposals are accompanied by a beautiful ring.Here is a short list of the most famous and historical engagement rings:
Princess Diana and Kate Middleton
Prince Charles, in proposing to Diana Spencer in 1981 , showed him a selection of rings from which the future Princess Diana chose this beautiful 12-carat oval sapphire, surrounded by 14 solitary diamonds in an 18-carat white gold band.
This was the same ring that Prince William used when asking the question to Kate Middleton in 2010, on a romantic and private vacation in Kenya. William said the ring was “very special” to him, and giving it to Kate was the way he made sure his mom “did not miss it”.
Kate and William were married in 2011 in front of thousands of people and millions of viewers. We completely agree that this impressive sapphire shines as beautifully in Kate’s hand as it did in Lady Di’s.
If we speak of American royalty, we are talking about the Kennedy. It is certainly reflected in the engagement ring he gave John F. Kennedy to Jacqueline Bouvier, he chose with the help of his father, Joseph Kennedy and bearing in mind Jacqueline’s love for emeralds.
On June 24, 1953, she proposed to him in a restaurant in Boston, with an impressive and original ring, open halo design, adorned with an emerald of 2.84 carats, diagonal to a diamond of 2.88 of the jewelers Van Cleef & Arpels.
And as a trend-setter was a lifelong marketer, Jackie Kennedy started a trend of emeralds in engagement rings of the time. Beautiful, do not you think?
The beautiful actress Grace Kelly lived the most incredible fairy tale in history when Prince Rainier III of Monaco asked for marriage on the Christmas of 1955. They met while Kelly was doing a photo shoot in Cannes, after that they began to speak by correspondence .
The Prince asked the question with a more modest ring, but when he saw the diamonds that the Hollywood actresses of his caliber carried, he changed it to one that was not going to go unnoticed, with a large 11-carat emerald-cut diamond flanked by Two other smaller cut baguette. The ring was included in the history of his last film “High Society”, since he was not supposed to be able to remove it.
They announced their engagement in January 1956, and in April they celebrated what was called”wedding of the century” in two beautiful ceremonies, the civil and religious in the Catholic Cathedral of Monaco.
The stunning actress and actor Richard Burton, met on the set of Cleopatra in 1963, in fact, shared their first kiss in front of the cameras, which apparently followed even after the director shouted “cut.”
Shortly afterwards, Burton asked him to marry a yacht on the River Thames in London, with a diamond ring of 33.19 carats, sheltered with two more diamonds on the sides and platinum band. Only nine people witnessed their union in 1964 and the huge diamond was formerly known as ‘The Krupp Diamond’, was renamed ‘The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond’.
It currently has an estimated value of nearly 9 million US dollars, arguably the mostexpensive on the list.
Queen Elizabeth II
They met when the still Princess Elizabeth was 13 years old , at the wedding of Philip’s cousin, Princess Marina of Greece and although it is not the greatest piece of Her Majesty’s jewelery, in short is the one with the most sentimental burden.
Prince Philip commissioned the ring to the jeweler Philip Antrobus using the tiara diamonds worn by his mother, Princess Alicia de Battenberg of Greece and Denmark. They finished in an elegant and time-resistant design of a 3-carat solitaire with 4 smaller diamonds on each side, mounted on a platinum rim.
He asked the future queen to marry him on a walk within the family estate at Balmoral in the summer of 1946, although they kept it hidden at the king’s request until the following year, when the princess turned 21.
The couple married on November 20, 1947 at Westminster Abbey and the ring is one of the most frequently used jewelry pieces by the Queen of England.
The style icon, Audrey Hepburn, could not simply have an ordinary engagement ring, it had to be different and full of elegance to represent what it reflected. And this was known to her future husband, Mel Ferrer.
In proposing a marriage to Hepburn in August 1954 in a garden overlooking Lake Lucerne, Switzerland, Ferrer did so with a non-traditional stack of 3 rings, with which the star could play, combine in different ways and adjust to his Outfit of the day.
They consisted of an eternity style ring of white gold with cut diamonds baguette of a total of 1.5 carats, accompanied by 2 rings alliance type, one yellow gold and the other pink gold.
The couple contracted marriage on September 24, 1954, in the same place where the proposal occurred, in a small ceremony only to relatives and close friends.
We all loved it, and they take with them stories that marked a before and after both in the world and in fashion, What is your favorite?
