From gorgeous emerald-cut diamonds to dazzling pavé accents, celebrity engagement rings are always the talk of the town, igniting serious sparkle envy and inspiring our next favorite cut. When it comes to bridal bling, these stars know how to turn it up; and when it comes to carat size, the bigger the better.
As we dive into the diamond-studded world of celebrity engagement rings, we uncover five that not only look uniquely gorgeous, but also perfectly encapsulate the power couple’s love story. From non-traditional gemstones to jaw-dropping diamonds, these are the five most one-of-a-kind celebrity engagement rings we’ll go gaga over, again and again.

Orlando Bloom popped the question on Valentine’s Day last year, with an engagement ring that matches the pop star’s fun and eclectic personality. Featuring an oval ruby center stone embraced by a floral halo of eight white diamonds, the couple flaunted this unique flower-shaped sparkler when they announced their engagement on Instagram.
The cluster design is a nod to the early 20th century’s Edwardian period, and while a few other celebrities have donned the cluster design as well, we think this floral halo design is truly befitting of Katy Perry - or shall we say, the future Mrs Bloom.
2 | Olivia Wilde
Of all the halo engagement rings we’ve seen, nothing quite sparkles as uniquely as Olivia Wilde’s. The actress’s engagement ring from Jason Sudeikis features a stunning round-cut diamond surrounded by a halo of emeralds, set in yellow gold on a whisper-thin band.
A contemporary spin on the vintage design, her husband reportedly chose this ring for her because the emeralds reminded him of her beautiful green eyes. We love an unconventional halo with colored gemstones, what say you?

The Game of Thrones actress said yes to a beautiful solitaire pear-cut diamond set on a double pavé band when Joe Jonas proposed to her in October 2017. The three-carat stunner is unconventional in its cut, just as much as its setting. The pear, being the most brilliant of all fancy cuts with 58 facets, suits the actress’s bold and confident personality, while the double band is a modern interpretation of traditional pavé settings, perfect for this young vivacious couple.
4 | Amal Clooney
In April 2014, longtime bachelor George Clooney proposed to the human rights lawyer with a spectacular seven-carat diamond flanked by two tapered baguettes set in platinum. Albeit in a classic three-stone setting, we love that Amal Clooney’s emerald-cut diamond is ethically mined.
With his charity focus on poverty and refugees in Africa, it’s no wonder George Clooney would pick an intentional and conflict-free diamond for his wife. The vintage emerald cut allows the center stone to take the spotlight, while the baguettes pair perfectly for a timeless, elegant look.
5 | Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Back in 2010, Prince William proposed to then-Kate Middleton with a familiar ring: the gorgeous sapphire engagement ring that belonged to his mother, the late Princess Diana. The 12-carat Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds, was originally selected by Princess Diana before her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981. The ring holds poignant significance for the royal couple, as Prince William once said that giving this ring was his way of making sure his mother did not miss out on his wedding day.
At the time, Princess Diana’s choice caused quite a stir, with many criticizing her for choosing a “commoner’s sapphire”. However, criticism turned to revere as it soon became the world’s most sought after engagement ring style. When Prince William proposed with her ring once more, sales of sapphire engagement rings flew through the roof, with jewelers all over the world sourcing for these beautiful blue gems to satisfy the public’s demand.
There are so many stunning celebrity engagement rings out there, from Kim Kardashian West’s 15-carat, cushion-cut diamond ring, to Emily Ratajkowski’s minimal yet bold princess and pear-cut diamond showpiece. And let’s not forget Elizabeth Taylor’s iconic 29.4-carat emerald-cut diamond, a true showstopping sparkler back then just as much as it is now. Beyond just taking our breath away, these rings are the trendsetters of tomorrow and inspirations of today.
Every engagement ring carries its own unique significance, so don’t be afraid to explore new styles to find one that resonate with you. After all, engagement rings are meant to last a lifetime - make it count.
