We’re all familiar with the most famous sapphire engagement ring now owned to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. But actress Elizabeth Hurley is giving Kate a run for her money with her new engagement ring. The 46 year old beauty announced her engagement to Australian cricket star Shane Warne the other day.
The bride-to-be was seen in St. Andrews, Scotland flashing a huge sapphire and diamond ring where Warne supposedly proposed. We caught a glimpse of the ring in PopSugar and couldn’t help but make the comparisons to Kate’s ring but Hurley’s ring is much more modern. The ring has a platinum setting with a ginormous 9-carat center blue sapphire accompanied by a 2-carat trillion cut diamond on each side. It’s quite stunning. Sapphire also happens to be Warne’s birthstone.
Would you like to be proposed to with a sapphire engagement ring?
It was only four months ago we announced model/actress Molly Sims was engaged and now she’s married! This past weekend the blond beauty married movie producer Scott Stuber in Napa Valley. After seeing her wedding photos in PopSugar I was pleasantly surprised by how simple yet romantic Molly’s wedding day look was.
We’re often used to seeing celebs going over-the-top with their wedding dresses in huge princess-like dresses, showing off lots of skin and pounds of makeup. Molly Sims looked simply breath-taking in an elegant lace Marchesa that hugged her supermodel figure. Her hair was up in a high chignon that allowed her diamond earrings to get some attention. The most attention grabbing jewelry was of course her cushion-cut diamond engagement ring.
The couple looked really happy and cute — giggling and kissing before saying their official I do’s. Celeb guests Fergie, Josh Duhamel and Vince Vaughn attended the wedding. I love that Sims chose a red velvet wedding cake. Yummy!
Sims will be hosting a Project Runway spin-off show called Project Accessories which will be on the search to discover the next big jewelry designer. Can’t wait to see a show all about jewelry!
Congrats to the newlyweds Molly and Scott!
