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.

Style Icon – Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner is all over the news with her new reality TV show – Life of Kylie. I have seen a few seconds of a clip of the show, and it looks good. I am no longer a huge fan of reality TV shows, especially those of the Kardashian/Jenner family. Which is why I am not watching Life of Kylie, but I am sure millions of Kylie’s fans are watching.

Kylie Jenner has grown up before our very eyes, and her style has evolved in the last few years. This young Style Icon keeps making a fashion statement every time she steps out. And guess what? She knows it!

“I never thought I was normal, never tried to be normal” – Kylie Jenner.

Kylie Jenner is famous for experimenting with her facial and body features (which I don’t admire), but she is also fashion risk taker, and I like that about her. She is not afraid to play with her look, and the best part of it is that she nails it overtime.

If I were asked to describe her personal style in 3 words, it would be – trendy, provocative, stylish. When it comes to fashion and style, Kylie Jenner slays!

Kylie Jenner seems to be taking fashion and beauty lessons from her big sister – Kim Kardashian. The good thing is that those lessons are working for her. She actually looks like a mini version of Kim now with all the changes she is making.

Apart from this beauty’s stylish fashion sense, I also admire her working ethics. Some days ago, I came across the book – How to be an Overnight Success by Maria Hatzistefanis, and Kylie Jenner’s attention to her brand and her hard-working nature was mentioned repeatedly in the book. It is good to see Kylie doing well outside the Keeping up with the Kardashians reality show. As the youngest of the sisters, I am happy to see she has her business head on. Whatever she touches, turns to gold!

Best Dressed at The 2017 MET GALA

I have not written a “best dressed red carpet” post in months. I used to feature them regularly years ago, but I lost interest in writing about them. But I came across some amazing looks from The MET GALA 2017 red carpet, and I was blown away by the beautiful looks. The celebrities went all out with the dresses this year. Thumbs up to their stylists!

Here are my best looks from The MET GALA 2017 –

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian looked very simple and chic in a stunning white Vivienne Westwood dress. I am quite surprised she showed up looking this elegant and simple. I guess she is still recovering from the media backlash from her butt issue. The off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood Couture gown is a great choice for Kim Kardashian in this time, she slayed it!

Lupita Nyong’o

The lovely Lupita Nyong’o went bright and bold in a coral organza chiffon Prada gown with hand-cut organza flowers at its strapless neckline. She nailed it in this dress. Coral is definitely her colour. Her makeup is also on point too.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner looked amazing in this stunning La Perla Haute Couture dress. I love everything about this look. Her dress, makeup and hair are spot on! She was definitely one of the best dressed women at The MET GALA 2017.

Kate Hudson

I adore this look. Kate Hudson looked amazing in this white asymmetric shoulder Stella McCartney gown with matching platinum tresses. I really like this look. I think she looked beautiful on the red carpet.

Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes played in this off-the-shoulder look from Zac Posen. I love her hair and makeup too. She looked so beautiful.

Gisele Bundchen

Gisele Bundchen killed it in this long-sleeve silver Stella McCartney gown. This outfit ticked all the style boxes for me.
