As any pop culture aficionado knows well, Hollywood weddings are usually sealed with a giant, glitzy ring. From princess cuts to eternity bands, diamonds are often the go-to for celebrity wedding bands. But minimalists, rejoice — Gwyneth Paltrow's wedding ring shows that sometimes less is more.
Paltrow married her longtime boyfriend, producer Brad Falchuk, on Sept. 29 in an intimate ceremony at the actor's Hamptons home. Paltrow and Falchuk — who announced their engagement in Nov. 2017 — have been together for four years. Of course, the private affair was chock full of celebrity guests, including close friends of the couple like Cameron Diaz, Steven Spielberg, and Robert Downey Jr. But alongside the celebrity-filled guest list, the most interesting component of the ceremony was the perfectly understated wedding bands that the couple exchanged.
In an Instagram post on Sun. morning, Paltrow shared a sweet photo of the newlyweds' hands featuring their brand new, matching wedding bands. While some celebrities opt for flash, Paltrow and Fachuk decided to stick with a classic, minimalist design. Considering the couple have remained notoriously low-key throughout the course of their relationship, it makes sense they gravitated towards simplicity.
The timeless, thin band is bound to inspire brides (and jewelry lovers) to come.
People Magazine spoke to a source about the romantic events that ensued on the day of the couple's nuptials. The environment seemed like one filled with love, friendship, and genuine happiness, as the source shared that "the friends that attended are all people that love them." The source continued, "Throughout the reception, guests laughed and you could tell everyone had a wonderful time. It was truly a beautiful wedding."
This is the first traditional wedding for Paltrow, who eloped with ex-husband and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in 2003. Paltrow and Falchuk took a low-key approach to their ceremony, keeping details and press to a bare minimum.
If you're a bride-to-be in search of a wedding band (or you're just in need of the perfect gold ring), you're not alone. The Zoe Report has carefully assembled the understated — yet incredibly pretty — rings to add to your collection.
