Celebrities are trendsetters in more than one setting, fashion, makeup, and lifestyle. Another thing they’re noted on is having iconic engagement rings. Hollywood seems pretty far away to us in Adelaide but we’ve found the team that’ll source your celebrity diamond ring lookalikes (without the exorbitant price tag). We chatted with the team at DDS Diamonds on what makes a ring special regarding carat, cut and clarity and they provided us with some styles they stock that can fulfil your celebrity ring desires.
DDS has been manufacturing diamonds for over 65 years, they’re big on using the best quality, palladium-rich, nickel free gold in their pieces as well as sourcing their Diamonds and gems for their superior quality so your ring is bound to have a long life of brilliance.
We’ve compiled some iconic and some new rings that are majorly sought after so if you’re anticipating the big question then make sure you pass this guide on to your partner (a subtle hint goes a long way).
Princess Diana and Kate Middleton
When Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mothers Sapphire ring the nation shed a tear for the princess and icon. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon and six years later, it still remains a favourite amongst recent engaged couples. Most jewellers will stock a variation of the ring but what makes DDS’s Tav & Angela Engagement Ring special is its combination of white and yellow gold. The band is set with round diamonds and the oval cut sapphire is set with round diamonds on a white gold bed. Whilst the Duchess’ sapphire is surrounded by singular diamonds, we think the round diamonds on DDS Tav & Angela complement the sapphire just as beautifully.
The time for simple engagement rings seem to be fading if you look at Emily Ratajkowski’s engagement ring. A combination Pear shape and Princess cut ring set with a wide 18ct yellow gold band. It’s definitely an unusual mix and rare to produce. DDS however, manufacture a very similar modern contemporary design in their Pink Trilliant Cut which combines a 5ct pink Tourmaline and a diamond on a rose gold band. Having a stone as an engagement ring is a unique alternative to diamonds which suit a more unique girl.
Miranda’s an Aussie native so it’s no surprise that her engagement ring to Evan Spiegel is a sought-after ring. Her 4ct round diamond is set in an 18ct white gold band with a 6 claw setting. She’s matched a fine band of diamonds with the ring too. DDS’s Karen Engagement and Wedding Ring which is a 2.08ct diamond on a white gold/platinum band and matching wedding band is an extremely similar design that encapsulates the shape and style. If you’re looking for a classic piece that’ll last the trends, then this is the choice for you.
The gorgeous Priyanka’s engagement to Nick Jonas might’ve been a bit surprising to everyone but we were more
Last but not least by any means is newly crowned Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s slightly vintages style cushion cut 3ct diamond with ¼ ct side diamonds on a fine 21ct gold band, at first glance the ring isn’t
If any of these stick out to you as the one ring to rule your relationship then it might be worth contacting DDS for a consultation (they’re by appointment only). DDS are diamond manufacturers that custom design all their rings and tailor them to the buyers exact requirements, so if these rings are just a great starting point, they can help you design one that feels just right.
