Josephine Skriver’s Engagement Ring Is Glitzy Yet Timeless — Here’s Why
With the touch of a button, social media allows celebrities to share their latest outfits, newest business ventures, and even glimpses into their personal lives. That said, it's no shock when they turn to the internet to announce some of the biggest (and best) moments of their lives. Josephine Skriver’s engagement ring blew on up Instagram for good reason: It acts as the perfect middle ground between glamour and subtlety, and it comes with a touching story.
Skriver took to Instagram on Mon. to announce her engagement in an especially epic way. The Victoria's Secret Angel not only shared a photo of her beautiful ring, but also gave the public a peek at the wildly romantic proposal her fiancé planned. Musician Alexander DeLeon set the bar high for couples everywhere by getting down on one knee under the Northern Lights in Finland.
Alongside the incredible photos of the event, Skriver shared a beautifully written caption detailing the proposal, her relationship, and just how excited she is to spend the rest of her life with DeLeon. "I have never been more sure about anything in my life. You are my biggest adventure. My fairytale come true. My soulmate. My best friend. The love of my life. So of course it was 1millionxYES!!!" she wrote.
It's no surprise that a proposal this amazing came with an equally unbelievable engagement ring. The newest addition to Skriver's finger features the ultimate balance between sparkle and sophistication. The ring is made up of an emerald-cut diamond in the center, and two adjoining diamond-encrusted bands on each end. While minimalistic rings have reigned supreme in Hollywood as of late, the 25-year-old model's glitzy piece of jewelry proves that a little bit of dazzle can look just as polished.
All it takes is a short scroll through the 25-year-old's feed to see how well the ring fits in with her personal style. The model tends to lean toward elevated versions of simple pieces, like sparkly mini dresses, colorful sneakers, and bold makeup.
Although Skriver has yet to release any information about her ring designer, there's no shortage of similar styles available to shop now. And with holiday season (a.k.a. engagement season) in full swing, there's no better time than the present to start searching for a little inspiration.
