Proposing to your loved one can be one of the most stressful moments of your life. For highly romantic people, they have to choose the perfect arrangement and wait for the right moment to propose. And don’t forget, the time and effort it takes to choose fireworks that will reflect your vows forever. For some people, choosing the perfect ring to propose means choosing the biggest and brightest.
It is not always true that the biggest and brightest are the best. Sometimes, you have to consider your partner’s personality and the type of jewelery he or she will be wearing. If your boyfriend is the unconventional type, all the more reason to explore unique options that go beyond the traditional.
Here are some colorful suggestions that might be better than a plain white diamond.
Pink has always been considered a feminine and feminine color. Especially if it translates into a diamond ring. Pink diamond rings have become a popular choice for celebrities like Blake Lively, who is now married to Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds eschewed the traditional white diamond in favor of a 12-carat pink diamond ring – supposedly worth $2 million – that he proposed to Lively. Back in their famous Bennifer days, Ben Affleck proposed to Jennifer Lopez with a 6.1 carat pale pink Harry Winston diamond. The relationship, however, did not last and they married other people – Jennifer Garner and Marc Anthony. Another famous celebrity with pink fireworks is Anna Kournikova, who received an 11-carat pink diamond engagement ring from longtime love Enrique Iglesias. Kate Bosworth joined the pink diamond bandwagon with a square-cut engagement ring from Michael Polish, whom she recently married.
Another color that is making the popular rounds in the engagement ring arena is yellow diamond. Carrie Underwood’s husband, Mike Fisher, proposed in late 2009 with a 5-carat yellow diamond ring estimated to be worth around $150,000. For former couple Seal and Heidi Klum, a 10-carat walnut diamond sealed the deal in their engagement. The yellow fireworks, which Seal co-designed with jeweler Lorraine Schwartz – are estimated to be worth $150,000. When David Beckham first proposed to Victoria, he did so with a 3-carat marquise-cut diamond. This simple ring, however, has now been upgraded to a large cushion-cut yellow diamond ring. Other celebrities who have been a part of the yellow diamond bandwagon include Rebecca Romijn, Paris Hilton, Kelly Clarkson, and Adele.
Carrie Bradshaw first rocked this black firework in the movie, Sex and the City 2. While the badass rock may not appeal to everyone, but on some women, it looks just right. A black diamond solitaire ring may be a less traditional choice, but Carmen Electra has chosen the perfect ring to match her style. Kat Von D is another celebrity who opted for black fireworks when she got engaged.
Champagne colored diamonds are also known as brown diamonds. Although this hue is less popular than other diamond hues, it is slowly becoming a trend. At the 2012 Tony awards, Sheryl Crow wore a stunning champagne cougar diamond on her finger. In the love arena, Dax Shepard presented his beau Kristen Bell, with a gorgeous champagne diamond engagement ring accented with platinum and dainty white diamonds. This beautiful stone is sure to help steal your sweetheart’s heart and convince her to say “I do”.
