Famous Engagement Rings
A proposal on the top of the Eiffel Tower is one that most women dream about and what one woman got to experience – Katie Holmes said “yes” to her Prince Charming Tom Cruise as he slipped a rose gold engagement ring onto her finger. This rose gold set the precedent for thousands of ring designs to come because of the vintage look it gives.
Audrey Hepburn’s engagement ring consisted of stackable rings. Her beau Mel Ferrer came up with the brilliant idea to give her a band in rose gold and another one in white, so she could have the option of matching her rings with her outfits.
The lucky fiancée of Napoleon Bonaparte received an engagement ring that would be worth $949,000 in today’s market. Her gold ring had two pearl-shaped stones side by side, a blue sapphire and white diamond, that faced opposite directions. The empress-to-be Josephine de Beauharnais, formerly named Rose, married the French general three months after their engagement.
Summer love was in the air for the 35th President of the United States and his bride-to-be, Jacqueline. He got down on one knee and proposed with a square-cut 2.88 carat diamond and green emerald engagement ring. John and Jackie were connected by a mutual friend, Charles Bartlett, who introduced them at a small dinner party. You never know when an introduction may lead to a love connection!
Prince Rainier III put a ring on it with a 10.47 emerald-cut diamond engagement ring by Cartier for his lovely Grace Kelly, merely three days after meeting her and her family and after some months of correspondence upon Kelly’s return to the States. Love at first sight? Maybe. As one of the bridesmaids described it, “Their relationship was both rational and passionate.”
