Celebrity engagement rings we love

Last month, Meghan Markle became the envy of girls worldwide when she and Prince Harry announced their engagement. While we were very excited to find out about the proposal and impending royal wedding, all eyes were on the new ring on Meghan’s left hand during the photocall.

Designed by Prince Harry, the three-stone ring features a centre cushion-cut diamond, estimated to be around 3.5 carats, which he sourced from Botswana, where the two of them travelled during the early stages of their courtship. Flanking this are two smaller diamonds from Princess Diana’s jewellery collection “to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.” Awww…

To give Angelababy a fairytale wedding, Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming not only threw his bride a castle-themed wedding but also proposed with a ring fit for a princess – a custom-made tiara ring from Chaumet’s Josephine Imperiale collection. In addition to the elaborate 5-carat sparkler, he also designed a 7-carat diamond ring, aptly named Love Baby Embrace Princess' Heart, as a wedding gift to his wife. #husbandgoals

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but sometimes a classic solitaire just doesn’t cut it. Fortunately Sheila Sim’s fiancé’s got the memo and opted for a bespoke sapphire engagement ring for his bride. While the design was modelled after a ring Sheila’s grandma had, the two "kite-shaped" diamonds that flank the sapphire were her fiance’s idea. “I only wanted the sapphire but it was a really good idea [to add the diamonds] because now the ring feels like it has ‘both of us’ in it, and not just what I like,” said Sheila.

Taiwanese businessman Alex Tien surprised Yvonne Lim (and many) when he got down on bended knee and proposed during a magazine photoshoot with a glitzy diamond ring. The 3-carat solitaire with four smaller diamonds on each side, looks massive on the actress’ dainty hand.

If you thought Angelababy’s ring was over-the-top, get a load of Carina Lau’s enormous pear-shaped sparkler from Tony Leung. The whopping 12-carat diamond ring from Cartier is estimated to be worth over HK$10 million (S$1.7 million). Go big or go home, right?

Tanglin actress Rosalind Pho is a rainbow lover so it was only fitting that her fiancé Yohei Ueno popped the question with a “rainbow ring” in July this year. Comprising different coloured sapphires and a row of diamonds around it, the ring was custom-made by one of Roz’s friends who is a jeweller. Now all she needs is a rainbow wedding gown to match her bling.

Would you expect anything less than quirky from Xiaxue? When the Singapore influencer was told to pick her own wedding ring (her husband Mike Sayre is clueless about rings), she got Larry Jewellery to make this heart-shaped stunner for her. Not quite her dream ring (she really wanted a pink diamond) but this rock comes pretty close.

Brad Pitt spared no expense when it came to Angelina Jolie’s engagement ring, working with jeweller Robert Procop for more than a year to create the perfect ring for his missus. Designed to complement the actress’ hand, the 16-carat ring features an emerald-cut bauble flanked by trapezoid diamonds and is estimated to cost US$250,000 (S$337,000). No wonder the couple battled over their bling after their split.

Shu Qi and Stephen Fung’s wedding may have been a low-key affair but the bride’s engagement ring was anything but. Reportedly worth NT$10 million (S$430,000), the 3-carat stunner from Bulgari’s Dedicated to Venice collection was inspired by the world's first diamond wedding ring gifted to a bride at a 16th-century wedding.

Alfred Sim’s five-figure wedding proposal to Tay Kewei wasn’t the only thing “spoil market” about the couple’s engagement. The rock the Project SuperStar 2014 champ popped the question with was equally extravagant – a custom-designed ring consisting of a solitaire flanked by 8 smaller diamonds. Our favourite part? The pink and light blue diamonds to represent Kewei’s love for Little Twin Stars. The devil’s in the details.

And finally, one of the most iconic engagement rings of all time - Kate Middleton’s exquisite sapphire ring. Boasting a 12-carat sapphire surrounded by 14 smaller diamonds, the sparkler that once belonged to Princess Diana, is now worth an estimated £300,000 (S$542,000).
