Celebrity Gemstone Engagement Rings

Gemstone engagement rings are all the rage right now. From green emeralds to red rubies, celebrities and royalty alike are choosing to set their engagement rings in gorgeous gemstones.

Kate Middleton

Who says you shouldn’t wait nine years to marry your prince charming?

On November 16, 2010, the entire world gasped for the day they never thought would come: the engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Previously worn by Princess Diana, Kate was the proud recipient of an 18-carat blue sapphire, surrounded by white diamonds.

And while the world was smirking at Kate for having waited so long for an engagement ring (who could ever forget “Waity Katie”?), the Duchess of Cambridge had the last laugh – all the way to her castle. Her friggin’ CASTLE.

Good on you, Kate. You rock.

Halle Berry

Halle Berry has it all – beautiful looks, an Academy Award and a hot French man (none other than Olivier Martinez). Martinez, star of such films as Unfaithful and S.W.A.T., surprised Berry with an engagement ring in March of 2012.

They, in turn, surprised us all with an unconventional choice of stone: a luscious green emerald. Set in antique-looking yellow gold, Halle Berry’s beautiful engagement ring is just as unique as she is.

Kudos to you both!

Priscilla Chan

So… your BF is Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook and worth billions of dollars. You’d expect her to be sporting a huge rock on her finger, right? Well, no.

Mrs. Zuckerberg received a beautiful ruby engagement ring flanked by two side diamonds. While naysayers accused Zuckerberg of being cheap, others found his penchant for simplicity simply refreshing.

The down-to-earth couple celebrated their nuptials with backyard wedding and the bride declined to wear a designer wedding dress, opting instead for a moderately priced frock.
Cheers to keeping it real!
