Celebrity Ring Inspirations
Engagement ring shopping can be exciting, blissful and fun while also stressful and intimidating.
When it comes time to shop for engagement rings, one of the best places to look is the posts of your favorite celebrities and Instagram influencers. While you may not have the time or budget to hire designers or source countless options, some of the most timeless engagement rings come from those that do. Don’t let their seemingly unlimited budgets and personal jewelers intimidate you. Rather, take their design legwork and emulate these showy styles for a ring that’s worthy of a lifetime wearing.
Let’s explore some of the latest engagement ring trends that are lighting up the hands of today’s influencers.
The oval shaped engagement ring has trended for the past few years and shows no sign of stopping. Many iterations confirm that this ring style is a classic and benefits the wearer with it’s elongating, sparkly shape.
