In light of Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s reported recent engagement (seriously, what took them so long?), we’d like to shine a light on the rather unique piece of jewellery the Pirates of the Caribbean star used to pop the question with. The, erm, rather sizable flower-shaped ring, featuring a deep pink center stone surrounded by eight smaller diamonds, is definitely unlike anything we have ever seen before.
So, obviously it’s only right we give you a list of all the most bizarre and unique celeb engagement rings used to date. Alexa, play ‘7 Rings’ by Ari please and let’s get started, shall we?
1. Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry
Captioning the post with the witty pun “full bloom”, Katy Perry slays the game while sporting her rumoured-to-be engagement ring that strongly resembles a flower. Orlando is said to have popped the big question on Valentine’s Day. The cluster ring elegantly features a pink diamond or ruby in the centre, surrounded by a host of diamonds, with a yellow gold band. Amazing.
Estimated ring worth: $5 million (approx. Dhs18,365,000)
2. Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson Ross
This now happily married pair got engaged in January 2014 and their fabulous engagement ring is what fairytales are made of. Steering clear from the classic, princess-cut diamond engagement ring, Evan decided to pop the question with this Edwardian style bad boy. It’s so incredibly vintage chic, with its marquise diamond center consisting of five-carats, adorned with 12 rubies and over 140 accent diamonds on every surface.
Estimated ring worth: $450,000 to $500,000 (approx. Dhs1,652,850 to Dhs1,836,500)
3. Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin
You might recognise them as the OTP couple from the hit TV series True Blood. Moyer and Paquin’s engagement took place in 2009 and in case you were wondering, he presented Anna with a moonstone ring, where the oxidised gold has a black finish, surrounding the gem stones. Why a moonstone, you ask? Well, moonstone engagement rings have been said to represent love, hope and harness sacred feminine energies. Deep.
4. Sebastian Bear-McClard and Emily Ratajkowski
Why have one ring when you can have both? Oh, to be rich. Anyway, that was exactly what filmmaker Sebastian Bear-McClard was thinking when he presented model Emily Ratajkowski with this double-diamond engagement ring in July last year. The ring consists of a square-cut diamond, as well as a pear-cut diamond both settled side-by-side on a stunning band.
Estimated ring worth: $50,000 to $90,000 (approx Dhs183,650 to Dhs330,570)
5. Offset and Cardi B
Now, this pair may be super confusing with their on-again and off-again rumours, but there’s no denying that the engagement ring Offset presented Cardi with is stunning. It boasts an enormous 8-carat, pear-shaped diamond enclosed by almost three-carat’s worth of more diamonds and pink gemstones. It’s a wonder how her hand doesn’t get tired lugging around all that icy bling.
Estimated ring worth: $500,000 (approx. Dhs1,836,500)
