The Most Famous and Iconic Wedding Jewelry
Celebrity weddings have provided us with some of the most memorable jewelry moments of all time. Who can forget Elizabeth Taylor’s sparkling emerald and diamond necklace set in brilliant platinum, complete with matching bracelet and earrings? From Hollywood power couples to royalty, we’re taking a look back at the most iconic wedding jewelry throughout history. While times may have changed, timeless jewelry trends remain the same. To get the look coveted by celebrities throughout the decades choose platinum. Throughout the course of history, platinum rings and wedding bands have remained an everlasting symbol of love.
1. Grace Kelly of Monaco
Want some royal rocks? Grace Kelly received not one but two rings for her proposal! The first was a fabulous eternity band of rubies and diamonds set in platinum. Once her husband-to-be saw the other leading ladies sporting bigger diamonds, he quickly set out for the next platinum stunner. An emerald cut center stone flanked by two baguettes. What else do you expect for a princess?
Get the look: This ring design is sure to be one that never goes out of style. Look for an emerald cut stone with two side stones and a platinum setting. You just may get mistaken for royalty.
2. Marilyn Monroe
Ms. Monroe may not have had an engagement ring, but her wedding band definitely made up for it! A timelessly chic channel set diamond and platinum band was spotted gracing her ring finger after she married baseball legend Joe DiMaggio.
Get the look: Platinum channel settings are still stealing the hearts of brides today. This fabulous setting creates the illusion that all of the stones flow together as one!
3. Elizabeth Taylor
Known as the most beautiful woman in the world, it only makes sense that Elizabeth Taylor was the owner of some of the most beautiful wedding jewelry. Married a remarkable eight times – and twice to the same man – it’s hard to pick a favorite. However, we love the nontraditional route Richard Burton took when proposing to Elizabeth for the second time- a spectacular set of an emerald and diamond necklace, bracelet and earrings all set in platinum.
Get the look: Want a style that stands out? Forgo the traditional engagement ring, and consider an accessory with bright gemstones done in platinum as a symbol of your ever after.
4. Penelope Cruz
To match her bold personality, Javier Bardem proposed to Penelope Cruz with a bold and beautiful sapphire and platinum engagement ring. The oval sapphire is surrounded by a halo of diamonds, creating a flower petal effect.
Get the look: Make a style statement with brightly colored gemstones done in timeless platinum. Your ring should be as unique, fun and vibrant as you are!
5. Amal Clooney
When you think of modern day royalty, Mrs. Clooney immediately comes to mind. Amal and George had a fairytale wedding, dream wedding band included. Her platinum engagement ring paired perfectly with a clean and classic micropave diamond band set in platinum.
Get the look: The appeal of a classic wedding band is endless. A platinum setting will make your ring the perfect heirloom to pass down one day, since overtime the ring will be just as beautiful as the day he popped the question.
