The Engagement Ring Trend Celebrities Are Obsessed With


From the resurgence of classics to entirely avant garde, we’re bonafide engagement ring fanatics no matter how you slice it. If you find yourself in the unconventional camp, have you considered a colored stone to set yourself apart? Showing a surge in popularity, celebrities like Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde, Reese Witherspoon and Halle Berry all sport a colored stone, and Victoria Beckham has a few in her collection as well—she’s reportedly been given 13 different rings by her hubs, David (casual). Then, of course, there’s Kate Middleton‘s oval-shaped sapphire. Can’t argue the timeless appeal of that stunner.

More than a celebrity fad, however, colored engagement rings are a great opportunity to make a meaningful piece of jewelry even more personal. Inclined to integrate your favorite color with a halo or side stones? We love it. Paying homage to your birthstone or that of your fiancé’s? So sweet. Perhaps you’ve had your sights set on a family heirloom? Points for sentimental value. Plus, when it comes to price, colored gems typically cost much less than their diamond counterparts—meaning you can go for a bigger stone whilst saving beaucoup bucks. That’s a win-win.

From champagne diamonds to sapphire, ruby and emerald gems, witness our edit of colored engagement rings ahead in a range of cuts, settings and shapes. We even picked a few avant-garde styles for the most experimental of brides-to-be. No matter your taste, we love a good color story.
