Special to OneWed from No matter how much we hate to admit it, we all have the same addiction to those glossy celebrity gossip magazines. Flipping through pictures of pop stars and movie stars with perfect hair and impeccable makeup, we all feel that same twinge of envy. And when we see those dramatic and wildly expensive engagement rings on their fingers, we can’t help but feel inspired. No matter what your engagement ring style, whether you like sparkles and glitter or subdued elegance, there is a celebrity-inspired ring out there for you. 1. Your Style: The Princess Your Ring: Solitaire diamond in a pavé halo setting. This simple-but-stunning design combines the classic elegance of the solitaire engagement ring with the sparkle and fun of a pavé setting. Available at all price points, this engagement ring offers some serious style. Your Celebrity Inspiration: Katie Holmes wears an oval solitaire, all-American princess Katherine Heigl wears a pear-shaped version, and the most girly girl of all, the one and only Katy Perry, amps up the classic engagement ring with a yellow gold band. 2. Your Style: The Fashionista Your Ring: Marquise solitaire. A striking marquise-shaped diamond and a perfectly simple band make the ultimate fashionable engagement ring. Not for the fashion faint of heart, this exquisite diamond shape is a slim oval with sharply pointed ends that works best on a simple engagement ring. Your Celebrity Inspiration: Who else but the queen of cutting-edge fashion, Mrs. Victoria Beckham herself. David Beckham’s better half is always posh, with her sharply trendy haircuts, super-high heels, perfectly tailored dresses, and of course, a marquise solitaire engagement ring. 3. Your Style: The Lady Your Ring: Emerald-cut ring with a three stone setting. The three-stone setting has long been a favorite of women with classic, refined elegance. It is beautifully proportioned and shows off a gorgeous center stone with two equally beautiful side stones. The emerald cut, with its symmetrical facets, is one way to play with the lines and geometric shapes of a three-stone engagement ring. Your Celebrity Inspiration: Two Desperate Housewives have been seen with this glamorous engagement ring style: Nicolette Sheridan and Eva Longoria Parker. Eva Longoria’s engagement ring has a pretty high carat wattage already, but she turns up the bling with a pavé band and a diamond-set setting. But even that doesn’t beat Hilary Duff’s enormous emerald-cut three-stone engagement ring, with a center stone estimated at 10-12 carats and an estimated cost of $1 million!
