Diamonds are a girls best friend

January 07, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

It's an age old tradition dating back as far as Ancient Rome indeed, to present a woman with a ring when you ask for her hand in marriage. Long gone are the days where a woman was surprised by the ring they were gifted, instead we see many an modern woman nowadays taking matters into their own hands be it subtle hints to a full on shopping spree with their significant other or if your're anything like me you've gone all out and created your own reference board on Pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/lovemissd/a-girls-best-friend/. Whatever your choice and however modern we become concerning marriage in general, this is definitely a tradition that won't be dying out anytime soon.

And I wonder what was the case for these lucky ladies, a fairy tale unexpected proposal followed by a rock that would put Mount Everest to shame?  Here are just a few of my favourite celebrity men (ahem) I mean  'rocks' ;o)

 

Jenna Dewan, to Channing Tatum

The couple were vacationing at the Four Seasons Maui at Wailea when  Channing popped the question. They met on the set of the 2006's Step Up movie and it was 'love at first sight' ... ahhh! The one woman we would all love to hate but secretly envy :) 

 

Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga

David Otunga’s  unexpected proposal took Jennifer Hudson by surprise when she found her five-carat engagement ring buried in the sand of all places. The ring has a round center stone and a micro-pave split-shank band, designed by Neil Lane.

 

Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

Christina Aguilera's five-carat diamond and platinum ring was designed by Stephen Webster. It's a combination of a princess cut diamond with hand filigree detail and it's a beauty. Jordan proposed to Christina whilst on holidays in Carmel, the pair were in their hotel room at the time which was filled with rose petals and gift boxes, each with a present and a self-penned poem. The last box containing the ring!

Jessica Biel, to Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel just before Christmas (2011) during holidays in a romantic snowy mountain setting with a whopping six-carat radiant cut engagement ring. The vintage inspired ring features a scrolling rope-style to the sides of the mount.

 

Gwyneth Paltrow, to Chris Martin

Chris Martin proposed to Gwyneth Paltrow on the phone! (ahem!!) and presented this Asscher cut diamond with a micro pave frame and double band. It's been reported in the news lately that our Gwynie and Chris who announced their split in March, are on the road to patching up their romance. Ahhh... we do love a happy ending :)

Madonna, to Guy Ritchie

Madge being Madge was one of the first of the celebrities to wear a three stone diamond engagement ring. A 5 carat three stone Edwardian style vintage ring with milgrain detail by Neil Lane . Her ex husband Guy Ritchie had this 'one of a kind' ring made especially for her.

 

Jada Pinket-Smith, to Will Smith

Last but most definitely not least, a stunning and very large 10-carat oval ring with a very hefty price tag to match, somewhere in the region of $200,000-$800,000. Now that’s what you call  'a girl’s best friend' ;)  

"We were just lying there, going to sleep. I looked over at her and I said, 'Hey, we might be real good married. Wassup? You wanna marry me?' Unplanned. No ring. Not the classic proposal. She said yes. It's really weird when you live the kind of lifestyle that we live: Simplicity becomes the jewel." 

- Will Smith (gotta love him)
