Not long after Spielberg’s January engagement, Machine Gun Kelly proposed to Megan Fox with an unconventional statement piece.

The two-piece ring was designed by the musician and British jewellery designer Stephen Webster. It features one Colombian emerald and one diamond – the couple’s birthstones – and two magnetic bands that represent “two halves of the same soul forming an obscure heart”, according to Kelly’s Instagram post on January 12.

Speaking with Vogue after the engagement, Kelly added that there’s also a thorn design in the band so that it hurts to take off. “Love is pain!” he said.

Kathryn Money, senior vice-president of merchandising and retail at Brilliant Earth, believes the ring is likely to have cost between US$300,000 and US$400,000.

3. Lana Condor

Lana Condor was the next celebrity to get engaged and show off her bling online.

She also shared that her fiancé worked with female-owned Vietnamese company Paris Jewellers to create the ring. Kothari believes that Condor’s ring features a three-carat diamond and could be worth US$100,000.

“The fact he knew how important it was to me that he’d collaborate with a Vietnamese company to help design my ring is a testament to just how truly thoughtful he always is. I cannot wait to be your wife, baby. I love you a million times over,” Condor added in her post.

“The diamond is set east to west rather than the traditional north to south, and the design evokes traditions from the art deco era,” she said. “It’s an antique-inspired ring with a modern flair to it.”

6. Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne was next, announcing in April that she’d received a heart-shaped diamond from Mod Sun.

People reported that her engagement ring was custom-designed for her, and that its centre stone is set atop a band encrusted with smaller heart-shaped diamonds. There are also two secret messages within the ring, the publication reported.

“It has the words ‘Hi Icon’ engraved in it, which were the first words he ever said to me,” Lavigne told People. “And it has Mod + Avril on the inside. He knew from the very beginning I wanted a heart-shaped diamond because on the day we met, we had matching heart-shaped paved rings on. We’ve worn them every day since, so it’s only fitting to have a heart-shaped engagement ring. I love it so much.”

Jennifer Lopez received her second engagement ring from Ben Affleck in April.

Lopez started wearing the green diamond ring in Instagram photos and on red carpets around that time. But it was Beverly Hills Diamonds’ diamantaire Ilan Portugali who shared a close-up look at the jewellery.

Portugali, who sourced the diamond, worked with Rahaminov Diamonds to design the ring, according to Vogue.

Its green shade makes it unique for two reasons, the publication reported. First, green is the second rarest hue of diamonds. Second, the colour is meaningful to Lopez.

“I always say the colour green is my lucky colour,” she wrote in her On the JLo newsletter. “Maybe you can remember a certain green dress. I’ve realised there are many moments in my life when amazing things happened when I was wearing green.”

8. Marc Anthony
