Check out the stars sparkly engagement rings - from classic diamonds to giant knuckledusters
Looks like our favourite 90s movie star really did have a very special Christmas indeed…
Julia Stiles shared the happy news of her engagement to boyfriend Preston Cook in her Instagram account, showing off a glimpse of her beautiful ring and captioning the photo ‘Best Christmas ever!’
The proposal took place in a at a private residence in Colombia, where the lovebirds went for the Christmas break, and from the background in the picture it may have been at sunset. How romantic!
The 10 Things I Hate About You star met her camera assistant fiancé when they were both working on the set of thriller Go With Me in 2014.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
She tied the knot back in August, but it’s taken Jodie Marsh three months to show us her engagement ring!
A fresh manicure was Jodie’s perfect excuse to share this snap of her sparkly wedding and engagement rings on Instagram, and wow!
Her wedding to James Placido in Barbados came as a surprise for fans as no-one knew she was even dating. Explaining the reason behind all the secrecy, the glamour model said: ‘We love each other so much and we wanted to get married for US, not for anyone else.’
‘We didn’t want a big fancy do, nor did we want a fuss or any attention. We wanted a simple, intimate, beautiful ceremony… We also kept it a secret because we believe in true love and we wanted our wedding to be about US and nothing else.’
Fair enough Jodie! We’re not jealous of that beautiful ring at all…
Gogglebox’s Eve has just announced her engagement, and now it’s co-star Chris Steed’s turn!
The reality star shared a snap of his rather impressive diamond on his Twitter account, captioning the pic:
‘It’s official…………I can’t sing Beyoncé anymore thanks to @Tony_Butland’
Some viewers will be surprised to learn that Chris isn’t in a relationship with fellow hairdresser and Gogglebox star Stephen, but although the pair were together during the first season, they quickly decided they were ‘better off as friends’.
In a past interview, he explained: ‘We were friends years ago, and then we evolved into sort of more like a relationship, so we were actually seeing each other when I got the opportunity of going on Gogglebox. So that’s how Stephen and I got on it.
‘We were actually a couple for the first series! But we decided that we’re better as friends. So second series, we went into it as friends, but I think a lot of followers that watched the first series continued to think that we were a couple.’
Chris’ fiance is a man named Tony Butland, who very romantically popped the question at the top of the Eiffel Tower on a trip to Paris. Congratulations to the happy couple!
If that sparkler on her ring finger is anything to go by, Liv has some big news to share with us!
The actress, 38, posted this picture to her Instagram account over the weekend, with the caption: ‘Goodbye for now nyc!!! Texas here I come #theleftovers’ – and although she didn’t confirm the news explicitly, reports are saying that her partner David Gardner popped the question some time ago.
A source told Us Weekly: ‘They have been since last Christmas but prefer to be private. She’s been wearing the ring.’
David and Liv welcomed their first child together, a son named Sailor Gene, back in September 2014, so a festive proposal would have been pretty timely.
Fingers crossed we’ll get to see the wedding snaps when the pair eventually tie the knot – what a beautiful bride she’ll make!
Jennifer Aniston gave us a glimpse of her wedding ring in her first public appearance since her surprise wedding to husband, Justin Theroux – and we’ve got serious jewellery envy, what a sparkler!
The pair married in a super secret ceremony at their Bel Air mansion on August 5, and Jen plans to keep things that way. Talking to Entertainment Tonight after her honeymoon in the luxurious Bora Bora, she said: ?We had the beautiful luxury of having a beautiful private moment and I?m going to be selfish and keep it that way!?
Congrats, you two!
There’s no more romantic day to propose than Valentine’s Day – a fact that Lady Gaga’s boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, took full advantage of when he presented her with this heart-shaped ring on February 14th.
Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, announced the couple’s engagement on Instagram with an intimate snap of the ring and the caption:
‘He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!‘
The pair has been dating since 2011, when they collaborated on the music video for her song ‘You And I’, and she has since said in interviews that she knew he was ‘the one’.
Congratulations to the happy couple – we can’t wait to see the wedding dress that this creative gal comes up with!
Okay, so we were momentarily so blinded by the sparkler on Katie’s hand that we failed to notice this picture of Richard James, her fiancé!
It’s not often that Katie shares pictures of her partner or their little 10-month-old daughter, Belle, preferring to keep her family life quite private, but clearly she was so thrilled with her new bling that she just had to share her excitement!
She wrote a heartfelt caption alongside the snaps, thanking the ring designer:

It’s the first good close-up look we’ve had of Emily’s impressive engagement ring since we got a glimpse of it when she posed with Peter and baby Amelia on the cover of OK! magazine back in February. It’s stunning (and huge!).
And it didn’t take long for Pete to shower Emily with more dazzling diamonds, sharing this picture of his belated anniversary pressie for his fiancée on Twitter with the caption: ‘Wanted to show you ems belated anniversary present. Eternity ring :))))’
The couple, who are parents to six-month-old Amelia, celebrated their two year anniversary on 17th July. We can’t wait to see the wedding plans unfold guys!
Seems the new Mrs Wood couldn’t wait to flaunt her brand new wedding ring as she returned to work following her marriage to Jesse Wood on 4th July. The Radio 1 DJ was spotted showing off her wedding ring in London and we can see why, the design she’s gone for is a stunningly simple gold band.
Have you seen the cute picture best pal Holly Willoughby tweeted of Fearne’s wedding day?
Our hearts just skipped a beat. How amazing is Cheryl Cole’s huge emerald cut diamond engagament ring (not that we knew she was engaged until she’d already got married) and her gorgeous sparkling wedding band?
Cheryl married her French boyfriend of three months, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, in a secret ceremony on the island of Mustique on 7 July 2014.
We don’t know much about the mysterious Jean-Bernard, but one thing we do know, he’s got good taste in rings. The boy done good.
Psst! Do you prefer Cheryl’s latest ring or her yellow diamond from her marriage to Ashley Cole?
Well, it didn’t take long for Kim Kardashian to start showing off her rock! After agreeing to marry boyfriend Kanye West following an elaborate proposal at a baseball stadium on her 33rd birthday, it seems newly-engaged Kim couldn’t wait to be photographed with her dazzler.
We’ve got to say, we are loving this Art Deco style ring that Scarlett has been showing off on the red carpet. The actress was pictured with the dazzler on her finger at the Venice Film Festival where she was promoting her latest film, Under the Skin.
And, isn’t it just a beautiful design! We think her fiancé, Romain Dauric, who is a French journalist, picked the perfect ring for Scarlett.
Congratulations to them both!
