Although we are not very far into 2019, the new year has already produced some quite impressive Engagement Rings. Celebrities and their fashion have always had a way to set the trends to come, and their engagement rings are no different! So here are some of Hollywood’s couples who have recently gotten engaged, and we are here with the blingy details.
Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood
The Supergirl actress said YES to co-star Chris Wood and this on trend sparkler. The center is an Oval Diamond that appears to be around the 3ct mark. It is set with a halo on a pave band.
Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt
The two announced their engagement on Instagram on January 14, and showed us some serious bling! While they have not commented on the ring, it appears to be at least a 5ct Cushion, set on a super thin diamond band and a matching petite style pave halo.
Tim Tebow and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters
The former NFL quarterback and 2017 Miss Universe got engaged in front of family and friends shortly after the New Year. The ring is a 7.25ct Round diamond that Tebow has confirmed is Internally Flawless.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a massive, record breaking heart shaped rough diamond has been discovered.
The world’s top diamond producer by output, Alrosa (MCX:ALRS), found a heart-shaped rough diamond at the Udachnaya kimberlite pipe in Yakutia, eastern Russia.
The stone weighs 65.7 carats and company experts say it may be over 300 million years old.
“Diamonds of a distinctive shape that resemble some object or symbol are extremely rare in nature. Most rough diamonds are octahedron-shaped or do not have a particular shape at all. The appearance of a heart-shaped rough diamond, especially on the eve of Valentine’s Day, seems to be a symbolic gift of nature not only to our company but also to all loving couples,” said Evgeny Agureev, Director of the United Selling Organization at Alrosa, in a media statement.
This is not the first time that the Russian firm lays hands on a unique diamond. Last summer, just in time for the World Cup that was being hosted in its home country, a rough diamond in the shape of a soccer ball was found at the company’s Karpinskaya-1 pipe, located in the northern Arkhangelsk Region.
The heart-shaped gem was actually dug up on January 23, 2019, but it made its public appearance on February 14. The place where it was unearthed, the Udachnaya pipe, is located near the town of Udachny, some 550 kilometres north of Mirny.
Udachnaya was first discovered in 1955 but it took over 15 years for open-pit mining to start in the place. The pipe now ranks among the largest primary diamond deposits both in Yakutia and abroad and it consists of two ore bodies, the Western and Eastern which unite in the near-surface part.
Lady Gaga made a statement on the Grammy Red Carpet wearing over 100 Carats in Diamonds. The necklace features 91 Carats and took over one year to design and construct. She topped it off with Princess Cut 10ct Diamond earrings.
