The Celebrity Wedding Ring Saga

Article by Ipshita Singh

So apparently there are ladies in the world, whose partners, never heard the phrase ‘love don’t cost a thing’. They rather liked to woo these ladies with stones so big; you might think they were ice cubes!

Lets start with something closer to pur heart. The Royal Wedding ring given to Kate Middleton by Prince William was a seal of Queen Elizabeth’s approval of William’s new bride as she was the one who supplied that ring! The ring is crafted from a piece of Welsh gold given to Prince William by the Queen soon after the engagement was announced. The ring was made by family jewelers from Wales and fashioned from a nugget of gold. Truly Pricesless ! We can’t really put a value to heir loom its wouldn’t be appropriate! William on the other hand , chose not to wear a wedding ring.

Now we move our attention on to celebrities further away from home, who hog all the media attentions by the rocks, they wear on their hands. Lets start with the gorgeous Brad Pitt. There were days when for Brad Pitt, purchasing a ready-made diamond for Jennifer Aniston wouldn’t be enough. He had a custom made ring for her besides also designing their wedding bands. So what Jen received was an Aside band in white gold with 18 carats of diamonds. Before this, the designer Brad Pitt had customized the rock he gave Gwyneth Paltrow when they were engaged. It had three small diamonds set into the band on the palm side, so every way you looked at it, it sparkled.Now that’s called being creative!And a perfect present when in love !

Madonna cudn’t get luckier when Director Guy Ritchie put some personal thought into the Edwardian Ring he gave her, a platinum Neil Lane ring that had a decorative band and three large stores symbolizing their family. How thoughtful is that?

Moving forward, Eva Longoria wed Tony Parker on their lucky day, 7-7-07. Her huge ring totaled 5 carats in all and shown in its emerald-cut glory. The couple bought a gorgeous and timeless set of matching wedding bands designed by Piaget. Tony’s platinum band is charming in its stylized simplicity, but truly pales in comparison to Eva’s 18-karat white gold ring. Her dazzling band shows two rows of 80 brilliant-cut diamonds circling 27 larger square-cut diamonds, with a romantic French inscription on the inside.All of Hollywood was set abuzz when Catherine Zeta-Jones sported her 10-carat antique diamond engagement ring from Michael Douglas. They proved once again that in Hollywood, size definitely matters.Diva Courtney Cox and David Arquette reportedly have “A Deal’s a Deal” engraved inside their rings.Such is the case with Katie Holmes’ renowned Edwardian cut oval engagement ring and her elegantly simple white-gold wedding ring.

When it comes to ornate fashion, it’s hard to compete with Britney Spears’ $ 40,000.00 platinum wedding ring. Embellished with a string of diamonds along the circumference of the band as well as a large central diamond, this one in a million design stands out as a bold statement in wedding ring fashion. This is one of the two wedding rings Britney owns from her short marriage with dancer Kevin Federline. Following her first pregnancy, Federline gave Spears another platinum wedding ring set with a 5.5 carat brilliant cut diamond.

Now here is a twist in the tale ! As a ring that truly can never be lost or broken, the idea of tattooing wedding bands onto the ring finger is one that’s been around for quite sometime, though has only recently gained a popular and trendy edge through the celebrity network-as most things do, these days. Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee are perhaps the pair most well known for their tattooed rings. The bands were inked where a ring would normally have been adorned, on the third finger of the couple’s left hands, with each other’s name in an elegant, flowing script.
