Are you looking to the stars for a little engagement ring inspiration? It’s not only the love stories of our favorite celebrities that make us swoon—it’s also the rocks that they select! With their talent for tapping into trends and fashion, it’s no wonder that celebrities pick out the most gorgeous engagement rings. If you’re hoping to satisfy the superstar in your life, we suggest you take notes from the likes of Meaghan Markle, Cheryl Blake, Cardi B, Blake Lively, Maren Morris, and more. You can even bring your celebrity engagement ring notes straight to Lux Bond & Green, and we’ll guide you through the steps of designing a custom ring. It’s a lot simpler then you might think.
There’s no better place to start than with sweethearts Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, whose love story has pulled heartstrings worldwide. After a few months of quietly dating, American actress and model, Meghan, and English royalty, Harry, let the world in on their secret in November 2016. From the start, the two knew this relationship would be the everlasting one. A year later, the couple was engaged! And of course, everyone wanted a glance at the ring. We’ll let you in on the details: the ring features three diamonds on a simple gold band, with one large cushion cut diamond in the middle, and smaller stones on either side.
Sensitive and thoughtful Prince Harry designed the ring himself. The smaller stones came from his mother Princess Diana’s personal collection, while the middle stone hails from Botswana, which is where the couple’s love blossomed. For a ring that evokes the Meghan/Harry romance, we suggest you look into this Forevermark tri-diamond, 18k white gold engagement ring, with extra sparkle thanks to haloed stones. Another gorgeous three-stone option is this platinum round diamond with pear shaped diamonds on either flank. Perhaps the closest to Meghan’s coveted engagement ring are these simple three-diamond numbers: featuring oval diamonds on a squared off band, and round diamonds set in platinum.
There are so many more celebrities who inspire us with their engagement ring choices. One of them belongs to Dancing with the Stars celebrity Cheryl Burke, who recently became engaged to Boy Meets World actor Matthew Lawrence. The ring’s design is as meaningful as it is beautiful. The center diamond is from her late father, and the two halos with smaller diamonds represent Cheryl and Matthew’s lives joining as one. He even inscribed “Love you always & forever” inside of the ring. You too can get Cheryl’s round-and-haloed engagement ring look with this platinum diamond ring, or this Forevermark diamond ring in white gold. Imparting additional meaning by using heirloom, family stones is a tried-and-true way that many couples make their engagement—and lifetime of marriage—special. Lux Bond & Green can help you create any of the custom styles that you’re looking for in your ring.
Romances are often sparked between artists who are mutually supportive of each other’s work. Cardi B.’s engagement to fellow rapper Offset was marked by a teardrop-shaped ring. Not only is this ring striking in its style—it features a large faceted diamond surrounded by white and natural pink diamonds in a halo— but its size is also remarkable. At eight carats, this ring takes the cake for luxury! If you want to emulate Cardi B.’s celebrity style, Lux Bond & Green’s pear shape diamond engagement ring set in platinum is your number-one pick. Not only is the central diamond haloed with micro pavé stones, there are also pavé set diamonds lining the band.
Actress Blake Lively probably couldn’t say no (and who would?) when actor Ryan Reynolds popped the question with a custom-designed oval diamond ring in a four-prong setting with a micro pavé band set in rose gold. This elegant ring is also very unique. To create a look like this, we suggest that you tap into your creative side, and go custom! Designing a ring to suit your love’s individual style doesn’t have to be challenging when you have the right guidance. Our experienced, non-commissioned professionals at Lux Bond & Green can give you all the education you need about diamonds, including lessons about cut, color, carat and clarity.

Country singer and songwriter Maren Morris tied the knot this year after an engagement to fellow country star Ryan Hurd. They sealed their commitment with a unique ring featuring a rough-cut diamond. It’s rumored that the proposal happened during a beautiful, private sunset boat ride. Making your own engagement special with the stone, the cut, the setting, and then popping the question at a memorable location is all part of the fun of getting engaged. Planning an engagement that is, in part, inspired by your favorite celebrity is an exciting way to dive into your life as one. Let the trusted experts at Lux Bond & Green help start your journey!
