Celebrity Engagement Ring Trends

The celebrities have definitely set an engagement ring trend for mere mortals like us to follow. When I got married, many years ago, things were very different from what they are today, especially in the engagement ring and proposal side of things.  There were usually no over the top public proposal, and proposals were fairly simple and very private. Social media was not big back then. There was no Instagram, so the pressure was non-existent unlike today.

The proposals are now over the top and the rings are getting more exotic. Who can remember Kanye West’s over the top proposal to Kim Kardashian in 2013? Kanye went all out with 50 piece orchestra and fireworks at San Francisco’s AT&T baseball park, and a 5 carat diamond ring by Lorraine Schwartz, estimated to be worth more than $1.6m. It was definitely the engagement of the year. Many of us still talk about it today.

Celebrity engagements have set the bar so high for engagement rings and proposals all over the world. I recently came across 77 Diamonds Celebrity Engagement Ring Trends Report for 2017 and I found the results very interesting. The report surveys 100 of the highest-profile celebrity proposals to discover their favourite engagement rings, diamond shapes, value, location and time of year to pop the question.

I found the survey very informing. I didn’t know half of the information on there, so it was a good read. The celebrities have changed almost everything in our world today, and when it comes to popping the question, they have stepped up the game completely.

 

Engagement Ring Trends

Here are some of the most interesting facts I found from the Celebrity Engagement Ring Trends survey.

 

Ring Design

According to the survey, various ring designs have been in demand from year to year. From 2013 to 2015, platinum was the engagement ring trend among celebrities. This changed to white gold in 2016, and then to yellow gold in 2017.

My engagement ring was yellow gold, and mine was a couple of years now, so I guess we saw the future engagement ring trend. However, If I was to get a new engagement ring today, I think I would go for a sparkly white gold ring or a platinum ring. I think I have fallen in love with white gold sort of engagement rings.

Still on the ring design, the oval cut diamond was popular with the celebrities in 2013 and 2014, but emerald has always been a celeb favourite.

Engagement Ring Carat and Value

The cost per carat for an engagement ring has changed a lot since 2014. The engagement ring value and carat are on an upward trend. The celebs are also spending much more on diamond quality than in previous years, which is good for all the parties involved. After all, diamonds are girl’s best friend.

 

Best Time to Pop the Question

According to the survey, most celebs got engaged in either the summer or festive season. I guess the amazing sunshine and festive cheer have a role to play in engagements.
