All About Engagement Rings

Giving and getting a diamond engagement ring is a wonderful way to show the world that you are in love. Celebrity engagements have become a treat for jewellery lovers, with many celebrities and other prominent women wearing bigger and sparklier diamond rings. It seems that the combination of the engagement ring itself and the famous lady it is associated with, rather than the size of the diamond, is what makes some of these rings so famous and recognisable. Have a look at engagement rings.

Diamond engagement rings have a long and illustrious tradition.

In 1477, Maximillan I of Austria gave Mary of Burgundy the first diamond engagement ring on record.
To unite their two houses and make their marriage a unifying symbol for the nation, he had the ring commissioned.

Princess Mary was given the smallest diamond engagement ring ever made when she married the Dauphin of France by proxy in 1518. At the time, Princess Mary was two years old.

Diamond engagement rings have grown in size, complexity, and inclusion of a wide range of other jewels and metals throughout history. Silver, platinum, white or yellow gold, or a combination of these elements, may be used to create diamond engagement rings settings.

Engagement rings of well-known women

Celebrities and other well-known people have a significant impact on the appearance and design of many forms of fashion, as well as setting trends.

  • Prince Phillip presented Queen Elizabeth II with an engagement ring made from diamonds from his mother’s tiara.
  • Prince Rainier proposed to Grace Kelly with a 12 carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring.

Lady Diana was proposed to with a ring set with fourteen diamonds and an 18 carat blue oval sapphire. Another thing to keep in mind is that engagement ring stores will still want to sell you diamonds that have already been set.
